VCA 12-Mile Animal Hospital

Donnald Kennard, DVM, Medical Director

DVM, Ohio State University


Dr. Kennard fulfilled his childhood dream of becoming a Veterinarian in 1985 when he graduated from the Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine. He worked for four years in a six doctor companion animal practice in Northeastern Ohio. During this time he developed a strong interest in surgery, dentistry, and diseases related to pets as the age.

Dr. Kennard purchased 12 Mile Animal Hospital in 1989 and has led the hospital as Medical Director ever since.

He joined the VCA family of Veterinary Hospitals in 2006 and is very happy to be a part of an organization that puts patient care and customer service as a top priority. Dr. Kennard has built a team of doctors and technicians that reflect his values and commitment to providing the best care possible.
