Dr. Mark Beerenstrauch, DVM (Dr. B) grew up in the small town of DeWitt, Nebraska. He graduated with a business management degree from the University of Nebraska at Kearney and then completed veterinary school at Kansas State University in 2004.
Dr. B has been practicing veterinary medicine in Las Vegas since he graduated, including working at and managing several veterinary practices. During that time he also hosted a radio show called “Pet Talk with Dr. B.”
After being frustrated with high-volume corporate medicine, Dr. B started Pet Health in 2014. He wanted Pet Health’s focus to be on the pet and pet parent—great customer service, more time for exams, and better communication. Some of Dr. B’s favorite authors are Jim Collins and Seth Godin, and you will notice their influence when you come into Pet Health.
Dr. B also has a passion for an integrative approach to veterinary medicine. He believes in presenting pet parents with multiple options, including those that are non-Western, as long as the treatments are based on scientific principles and reasoning.
He and his wife have five pets. Agnes and Imogene are wirehaired Dachshunds, and Babas is a one-eyed Pekingese. JB, a three-legged cat, lives at Dr. B’s house, and Mama Kitty has found a home at Pet Health.
