Ted Hemenway, DVM, Medical Director
Dr. Hemenway received his Bachelors of Science and Doctor of Veterinary Medicine in 1977. He then established Saginaw Animal Hospital in 1981 and became the medical director of VCA Saginaw Animal Hospital in 2005.
When asked “What do you like most about veterinary medicine?” without hesitation he says “It’s watching someones beloved pet take that first bite of food after being on death’s doorstep.” He continues “ The challenges of medicine and surgery are what drive most veterinarians, myself included, but when you watch a pet leap into the arms of an owner that thought they would never see them again...now that’s just wonderful!”
Dr. Hemenway enjoys almost all aspects of veterinary medicine however he says “I leave the anal glands to the techs. I wouldn’t want to take their jobs away from them.” In the last ten years he has developed a special interest in dentistry.
