Dr. Ken Genova, DVM

Veterinarian/Owner

As the owner of The Pet Clinic, I am excited to meet you and your pets and to let you know what you can look forward to. I have had the good fortune to be an active, practicing veterinarian medicine since 1974. In those years, I have been an emergency care specialist, a general practitioner, an educator at the Michigan State University Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital. and a consultant in special care to a 170-veterinary hospital group. Those experiences have allowed me to participate in many new advances in pet care and prevention. The staff and I will be adding these advances to your pet's health care so that they can lead a long, healthy, pain-free, fun-filled life.
