Dr. Mike Beard
Dr. Beard is a Diplomate, American Board of Veterinary Practitioners, Certified in Canine and Feline Practice. Dr. Beard always did well in school and thought someday he would go to medical school. However, he did enjoy growing up around farm animals. Also, the summer before ninth grade, he had the opportunity to work at Byreview Veterinary Clinic in Hope, AR. After that, he realized his passion was in veterinary medicine and would someday go to vet school.

They have a daughter, Elyse, a son, Ethan, and a granddaughter, Avery. Their family also includes fur members: Ranger, a chocolate lab, and Millie, a non-standard munchkin.
