  • David Bodenhausen, DVM

    Dr. David Bodenhausen was raised on a dairy farm in the St. Joseph area, where he remained for most of his life. Being raised on a farm helped to spark his passion for animal welfare and the different disease processes. He received his veterinarian degree from University of Missouri in 1979. He has worked with large farm animals and small domestic animals for the past 35 years. He joined All Creatures Animal Hospital in 2014. Dr. Bodenhausen is inspired by the challengers of working with pet owners to find out what the problem is with a pet who can not tell you "where it hurts".
