About Dr. Jan 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 more than 40 years of veterinary experience, Dr. Jan Pol is a pioneer in treating animals. He is also star of Nat Geo WILD’s #1 series The Incredible Dr. Pol, which follows the unflappable and unstoppable vet on his routine 14-hour workdays treating both pets and livestock. A graduate of the prestigious Utrecht University Veterinary program in The Netherlands, Dr. Pol immigrated 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 23,000 clients.
Specializing in large farm animals, Dr. Pol treats horses, pigs, cows, sheep, alpacas, goats, 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. And 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 pet. For that reason, he tries to keep pet ownership affordable.
With his thick Dutch accent, signature mustache, vintage 1981 “Back to the Future” DeLorean car, down-to-earth practical approach and fun-loving, never give up attitude, Dr. Jan Pol is nothing short of a local legend and America’s favorite veterinarian!
