Dr. Charlie Fahy
Dr. Charlie Fahy grew up on the east coast where their family trained and raced Standardbreds. Outside of harness racing, Charlie rode hunters and jumpers and was active in 4-H. They also bred and showed Netherland Dwarf rabbits.
Dr. Fahy earned BS degrees in Biology and Animal Science from the University of Findlay in Findlay, OH. They then attended The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine, with an equine emphasis, followed by a one year equine internship in field service and internal medicine. After their internship, Dr. Fahy completed a 3 year residency in Large Animal Internal Medicine at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, working with a variety of farm animals in addition to horses. Their interests and areas of expertise include emergency and critical care, neonatal medicine, respiratory disease, neurology, dentistry, and managing hospitalized patients.
While Dr. Fahy's area of special skill and expertise is treatment of sick horses (they generally remain in hospital) and more advanced diagnostics, they are looking forward to providing limited preventative and maintenance care for your horses, small ruminants, and camelids. Sometimes it is nice to see healthy animals too.
Charlie moved to Washington 2021 with their 2 German Shepherd Dogs, Kobe and Theodore, and 3 long-haired cats - Cricket, Spyder, and Flea.
