VCA Animal Healing Center

Sharon Marx, DVM, Medical Director

DVM, Cornell University


BS in Animal Science and DVM from Cornell University in 1991. Finished IVAS acupuncture certification course.

Dr. Marx enjoys spending time with her husband Jim who is also a vet at Univ. of Penn, her 2 sons, Ben and Dan, and 2 dogs Bailey and Grid.

"Veterinary medicine has always been a passion of mine even from the time I was very young.  Being with small mammals brings me incredible joy. Alternative medicine was the icing on the cake after having a Golden Retriever, Miami, live an extra year with the help of acupuncture.  I am honored and grateful to be an integral member of the family at VCA Animal Healing Center to have the opportunity to work with exceptional staff, clients, and pets every day!"


Specialty Care

Sometimes sick or injured pets need the care of a veterinary medical specialist. When that happens, VCA specialty hospitals work closely with the general practitioner veterinarians who refer cases to us in order to provide seamless veterinary care to your pet. When your pet is facing any kind of serious illness or injury, our specialty referral hospitals will provide the compassionate and expert care your beloved pet needs.

Our goal is to make sure that when you and your pet are in need that you have access to board certified specialists who are up to date on the very latest developments in their field. In our state of the art hospitals, our specialists also have access to the most sophisticated diagnostic and treatment tools and techniques from ultrasonography and endoscopy to CAT scans and even MRI.

As part of the VCA family, we have over 83 specialty hospitals across the US and Canada which provide referral specialty care, so there may be one near you. Our specialized services include: behavior, cardiology, critical care, dentistry, dermatology, integrative medicine, internal medicine, neurology, oncology, ophthalmology, radiology, rehabilitation, reproduction, and surgery.
