About Dr. Pol

"In this business, it is totally unpredictable what you're going to get, day to day. Animals don't wait to get sick, and they don't take appointments. They get sick, and they need to be seen. So, some days, you're gonna go in, and there's gonna be nothing going on. And other days, you're gonna go in, and you can't run fast enough."- Dr. Jan Pol

With nearly 50 years of veterinary experience, Dr. Pol is a pioneer in treating animals. He is also the star of Nat Geo WILD's #1 hit television series, The Incredible Dr. Pol, which follows the doctor on his routine 14-hour workdays treating both pets and livestock in rural Michigan. The Incredible Dr. Pol, soon to debut its 17th season, continues to break ratings records for the network and surprise viewers with Dr. Pol's witty and charming, no-nonsense approach to animal care.

Dr. Pol immigrated from the Netherlands to the United States in 1971. After ten years of practice, he moved to Weidman, Michigan, in 1981 and founded Pol Veterinary Services out of his garage with his wife, Diane. With a down-to-earth, practical approach to veterinary medicine, Dr. Pol grew his practice from a humble start to one with over 25,000 clients.

Specializing in large farm animals, Dr. Pol treats horses, pigs, cows, sheep, alpacas, goats, rabbits, chickens and even an occasional reindeer. A true friend of the farmer, he works tirelessly to ensure that the diminishing population of family farmers remains in business. He plays an integral role in keeping farmers' livestock healthy and their businesses profitable. Dr. Pol works with many 4-H groups and feels every child should grow up with a furry friend. He is also an advocate for affordable pet care.
