Meet the NorthStar VETS Team: Stacey Wylie, DVM, DACVIM


Stacey Wylie, DVM, DACVIM is a member of the Internal Medicine team at NorthStar VETS. In this blog post and video below, she talks about how she knew this was the career for her, the type of cases she sees, and how teamwork at NorthStar VETS elevates the level of medicine pets receive.

How Dr. Wylie got into Veterinary Medicine
We caught up with Dr. Wylie, who was examining a feline patient in Robbinsville. She decided to get into veterinary medicine based on her love of animals as a child. “I grew up with animals, mainly cats (I’m a cat person), but I also love dogs, and I have a dog now. I always knew I would go this route, but once I was in high school, I took a human anatomy and physiology class which solidified it. I fell in love with physiology, and I knew that that went hand in hand with medicine. For undergrad, I went to a small school in Pennsylvania right outside of Lancaster, Millersville University. I then went from there to Michigan State University for veterinary school. After that, I did an internship at Oradell Animal Hospital in New Jersey, and then after that I went back to Michigan State because I loved it so much and did my residency there. I was looking to come back home to family, so I looked up NorthStar VETS and came here to visit. I fell in love with the place right away and knew that it was the place I wanted to go. Even my husband knew right away that this was where I was going to be.”

The Types of Cases Dr. Wylie Sees
Dr. Wylie specializes in Internal Medicine and sees a wide variety of cases each week. “Internal Medicine deals with internal organs, mainly liver cases, gastrointestinal cases, bloodborne diseases, infectious diseases, kidneys, and urinary. Anything you can think of that’s not skin or outside the body is what we typically deal with.”

How Teamwork Impacts Patient Care at NorthStar VETS
Dr. Wylie joins a team of more than forty veterinarians at NorthStar VETS that cover many medical specialties. “Not only in the specialty of Internal Medicine, but also throughout the hospital, we work really well as a team. I don’t have any problem going to other services and asking them for help and vice versa. It really gives the patients good care.” Dr. Wylie is looking forward to working alongside the world class team of doctors at NorthStar VETS. “I think it comes down to the animals and the cases where we’re able to get them feeling better and actually make a difference for clients. When I feel like I’m making a difference, that is one thing I really love and we do it well.”
