Dr. Wayne Knapke was a 1988 graduate of The Ohio State College of Veterinary Medicine (GO BUCKEYES!). Upon graduation, he immediately migrated south to Jacksonville. He worked as an associate for 3 years and then built and opened Oceanview Veterinary Hospital in February 1992. He enjoyed boating, sailing, and fishing. He served on the Animal Health Committee with The Jacksonville Zoo and was an active member of The Jacksonville Veterinary Medical Society and Florida Veterinary Medical Association. Since his passing in 2015, we know that he is still caring for all of our beloved pets on the other side of the Rainbow Bridge.
