Dr. Wilhelmy graduated from the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine, and remained to pursue an internship and then a residency in veterinary behavioral medicine. She has treated feline and canine patients presented for separation-related problems, affective aggression, compulsive behavior, inappropriate elimination, environmental phobia, predatory behavior, thunderstorm and noise aversions, and generalized anxiety disorder.
Dr. Wilhelmy is a Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Behaviorists. Veterinary behavioral medicine is dedicated to preventing and treating behavior problems through the application of learning theory, genetics, physiology, and neurology. Dr. Wilhelmy’s goal is to help clients understand their dog or cat’s behavior, and enable both pet and owner to lead safer, happier lives.
In her spare time, Dr. Wilhelmy enjoys learning about real world applications of behavior modification (and there is always more to learn!). Although she has dabbled in herding and continues to enjoy recreational canicross, her true passion is dog agility. She is owned by three Border Collies, and is amused that the two adults have more letters after their names than she does.
