Our Veterinarians

Dr. Eric Wert

Owner, Veterinarian

As a youngster, Dr. Wert loved spending time with family pets. He also loved studying science, and quickly realized that veterinary medicine was the perfect way to put those passions together! His appreciation for animals and love of puzzle-solving makes this career a natural choice for him.

Eric grew up in Alabama. During high school, he got a chance to come to the west to work as a river guide. He loved the area and ended up attending college at Washington State University for both his undergraduate and graduate degrees in veterinary medicine. He started at Blackhawk Veterinary Hospital as an Associate Veterinarian in 1999, then purchased the practice in 2001.

Medically, Dr. Wert likes surgery because it can solve a problem quickly. He’s also interested in mystery-solving using non-invasive diagnostic techniques—ultrasound and endoscopy are fun challenges for him!

Eric has been married for 25 years and has three daughters. Currently, he and his wife have three elderly cats: Ebony, Thomas, and Cookie. When Eric has time outside of work, he enjoys playing guitar, reading world history, and enthusiastically supporting his daughter’s sports teams.
