Fogle 4-legged Family
Jeffrey Fogle​​​​​​​
D.V.M. & Owner

​​​​​​​Dr. Fogle grew up in Massillon, Ohio and went on to attend Miami University for an undergraduate degree in zoology in 1987. In 1991, he received his DVM from The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine and will always be a lifelong Buckeye. He and his family have resided in Medina, Ohio since 2000. He has practiced veterinary medicine in Chicago, Illinois; Fairbanks, Alaska; and Strongsville, Ohio, before arriving in Richfield in 2002. He has been lucky enough to not only treat pets but also beavers, eagles, reindeer, fish, alligators, deer and other assorted wildlife throughout the years.

If he’s not in the office you may have a hard time finding him as his favorite thing to do is travel with his family. Over the years they have traveled to all 50 states and to some beautiful foreign countries. If you need any travel advice or help with your animals, just ask! He would love to help you.
