A native of Tri-Valley area, Dr. Chuck Wraith knew from a very early age that he would become a veterinarian (perhaps because his parents have always had at least three dogs!) He attended California Polytechnic State University - San Luis Obispo for his undergraduate studies in biological science. He then attended the University of California, Davis School of Veterinary Medicine and received his Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine in 1988. After working as an associate veterinarian in local veterinary hospitals, Dr. Wraith purchased Parkway Veterinary Hospital in 1995.
Dr. Wraith's professional interests include sporting dog medicine, ultrasonography, endoscopy and soft tissue surgery. He is a member and past vice president of the Contra Costa County Veterinary Medical Association, and a member of the California Veterinary Medical Association, the American Veterinary Medical Association, and the American Association of Feline Practitioners. Dr. Wraith has provided volunteer services to the Lindsay Wildlife Museum and the East County Animal Shelter.
Reading historical military fiction, visiting the beach as often as possible and rooting for the San Jose Sharks are some of Dr. Wraith's hobbies. He has a daughter who is studying biology and global public health at the College of William & Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia and a son at UC Berkeley studying international relations. Both kids work at the veterinary practice during school breaks. The canine members of the Wraith family are golden retrievers Ricky and Flynn.
