Dr. Jennifer Dehnbostel (“Dr D”) graduated from The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 1995. She is a member of The American Veterinary Medical Association, Cincinnati Veterinary Medical Association, and the American Association of Feline Practitioners. Dr D is diligent in her continuing education, attending many conferences through the year gaining the most practical and technical medical and surgical advances/changes. She has an excellent reputation among local specialists in the Cincinnati area. Over the past 20 years, Dr D has worked with many incredibly accomplished veterinarians in both Georgia and Ohio. Her experience has been in both general day practice and emergency care, gaining valuable exposure to advanced veterinary medicine and surgery. Areas of special interest include: soft tissue and orthopedic surgery, internal medicine, dermatology, lameness, canine and feline senior wellness, and preventive wellness (keeping the healthy, healthy). The most rewarding aspect of her career has been the honor of caring for pets over time and witnessing the loving relationship with their families.
In 2009, Dr D purchased Pisgah West Chester Veterinary Hospital from Dr. McClaren. The name was changed to the Animal Hospital of West Chester that same year. Her goal has been to provide high quality personalized veterinary care and communication in a family oriented practice. No corporate protocols involved in your pet’s care.
Dr D has also been involved with many community events for local pets. Every year the hospital hosts a dog adoption event and fundraiser for local shelter/rescue dogs that need to find their forever homes. All proceeds generated from this fundraiser help support Carlie’s Animal Relief Foundation. Dr D is on the board for this not-for-profit foundation.
Dr D has 2 human children; Elliott attends OSU and Emma attends MND High School. They have 4 rescued fur babies; 2 large orange male senior cats Simba and Garfield, a senior Pug named Lola, and a young cocker spaniel Albert Brennaman. Albert was rescued at 9 weeks of age with many congenital abnormalities including a cleft palate.
In her free time, Dr D enjoys spending time with her family (both humans and pets), traveling, Art Festivals, Music Festivals, and spending time outdoors gardening, hiking, canoeing, kayaking, and sailing. In the winter months she enjoys working on her house and hospital.
