Dr Frank Kenny Jr

Frank Kenny Jr., DVM, first realized that he had a passion for caring for animals when he was a young boy meeting his grandma’s pet dog, Buster, for the first time. The joy he got from interacting with and building a lifelong bond with Buster showed him the importance of the human-animal bond. This bond, over time, led to him wanting to help strengthen this bond between others and their pets as he got older and had to figure out his passion he would pursue for the rest of his life. When he was in school, he also realized he enjoyed all the subject matters that would help him become a skilled and knowledgeable veterinarian later in life. Many people along the way told him how difficult it was to be accepted into veterinary school, but that only fueled his energy and inspired him to work even harder to get into veterinary school to follow his passion and his dream of becoming a veterinarian.

Now that he is a part of his dream profession, Dr. Kenny focuses on helping all of his patients have a productive and stress-free and fear-free visit. His goal every day is to provide the best possible care and make every person’s—and every pet’s—day better and healthier and improve quality of life in any way possible. Dr. Kenny works to provide appropriate preventative care and address any ailments/concerns and to improve that human-animal bond that Buster help taught him the importance of when he was a young boy.
