Dr. Carly Gerhardt comes to us all the way from Michigan, swapping freshwater Great Lakes for the Pacific Ocean. She received her Bachelor of Science and Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine degrees from Michigan State University. After visiting the central coast, Dr. Gerhardt knew this was the place she wanted to make home.
While attending Michigan State University, she was a board member for the Student Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care Society (SVECCS). In her final year of veterinary school, she was selected by faculty to receive the American Animal Hospital Association Award for Proficiency in Primary Care. Her veterinary interests include emergency medicine, oncology, and caring for geriatric (senior) pets. She is Fear Free Certified and believes in making every veterinary visit as positive as possible for her patients.
Dr. Gerhardt shares her home with four pets. She has two dogs, a Pittie/Labrador named Oliver, and a senior English Setter named Miriam. She also has two kitties, Frannie and NoNo, who may or may not be quite mischievous. She occasionally expands this number when fostering special needs pets for local animal rescues.
Outside of veterinary medicine, Carly enjoys any adventure with her dogs, whether it be trail hiking, camping, or visiting the dog beach. She can’t wait to further explore all that the central coast has to offer!
She is honored to join the Pismo Beach Veterinary Clinic team and serve the community and pets of Pismo Beach!
