  1. Sincere and best birthday wishes from Canada for a happy, healthy, and well deserved birthday. You’re only 5 years my senior, and I only hope I’m in as great shape as you in the next 5 years. Thanks for all the educational and fun years you’ve given us via TV. I’m farm stock myself, so relate to everything you or your team perform. Enjoy your day Dr. Pol…God knows you deserve it. Much love from Canada, and wishes to you for many more years to come. Keep smiling sir, it looks good on you :).

  2. I love your TV show. I grew up in Mt Pleasant in the early forties. I live in Arizona now and enjoy the visits to my childhood home.

  3. Dr. Pol,
    You are only a month younger than I am. I so admire your love and compassion for the animals and people of your community! My aspiration as a youngster was to become a Veterinarian. Unfortunately there was no encouragement from home where I was expected to be a housewife for some wealthy successful man and have no ambition for myself. I learned as a young adult that the only person you can count on is yourself. Fortunately, I shed that yoke.
    I’ve had and loved all sorts of animals my entire life from a pet skunk, dogs, cats, A pig, ferret, rats, etc. The joy these critters give to humans is immeasurable. Now down to 3 old dogs, these may be the last.
    Thank you, your lovely family and staff for sharing your work, passion, and lives with all of the rest of us mere mortals!!! Keep up the good works!!!

  4. I watch your show on cable TV here in Berkeley New Jersey – wonderful — repeats are often shown — watch them again & again. You and your staff & family do great work/service… Keep doing so. Thanks for information seen – heard about all animals….

  5. i love the show an dr pol is a great vet also his helpers are the best. i turn on tv and find his show first . cant wait to see whats next with him

  6. @30,000 per episode this net worth is full of BS. He’s worth alot more than they want to say, his home, property and business by themselves have got to be in the $4M area. As for Dr. Brenda leaving the show, also BS. Facts are easy to find on the net. People thinking Doc reads this page,, that’s very doubtful. He doesn’t sit around reading web page about himself. Not yet anyway. When he finally stops working – IF and when that ever happens – perhaps he’ll read stuff like this but I doubt it.

  7. Dr.Pol
    I was watching Dr Oakley Yukon Vet.
    They were treating a pig and they
    fliped the pig on its back and the
    pig did not sequel or kick. It was calm
    and was easily treated and everyone was
    safe. I though you might try this. They
    are so loud and hard to handle.

  8. you are an amazing man i watched your show when i was 7 and now at 12 i want to be just like you you take care of someone else’s pet just like their your own and in my eyes that’s what a vet is all about and yes i won’t turn my back on an angus cow hahaha! Keep on doing what your doing
    LOVE- Raylen Pinkston

  9. I think he is vary good vet and a great person
    I was born and lived on a farm in Wisconsin so I know what vet’s are like. From what I see he is out standing. I know a little I’m 81 years old.

    Thank You


  10. So nice to read about my old vet! Dr. Pol was our vet when I lived in Michigan many years ago. He cared for my horse and our dogs. He is wonderful. I moved away 37 years ago and now live in Virginia.
