Dr. Alicia Kendall, DVM

​Dr. Kendall began her journey at the University of Puerto Rico earning a Bachelor’s degree in Veterinary Technology. Following the completion of her undergraduate studies, she moved to the United States in 2003, to pursue a DVM, attending Michigan State University and graduating in 2007. One of the most enjoyable aspects of veterinary medicine is having the ability to create a relationship, not only with her patients, but with clients. She finds it fulfilling to be able to interact with the patients, as puppies or kittens, as they grow into adulthood. Veterinary medicine is not always easy, thus she has always found satisfaction in being able to help even when the cases are extremely challenging.

Dr. Kendall particularly enjoys internal medicine, ultrasonography and dentistry. Having grown up in Puerto Rico, Dr. Kendall is also fluent in Spanish. In her time away from the office, she enjoys her home life with her husband, daughter and her three dogs, Pancakes, Potato and Mr. Miyagi. Dr. Kendall spends time outdoors on the water with her family and friends, loves to read, and does a lot of arts and crafts (aka. Lots of glittery things with her daughter!).”
