Dr. Jeffrey S. Vogl

What could be more fun than playing with puppies and kitties all day long.  And what could be more rewarding than helping pets and their people too.  His practice philosophy is simple: Listen, take your time and have fun.  After 25 years of practice Dr. Jeffrey Vogl still loves the joys and challenges of veterinary medicine.  He opened University Park Veterinary Hospital in 1994, a small animal practice in Mishawaka after being an associate veterinarian in Michiana for ten years.  Originally from Michigan, Dr. Vogl received his degree from Michigan State University College of Veterinary Medicine, where he also did his undergraduate work. 

Besides running his practice, Dr. Vogl enjoys working in the many perennial gardens around his office and keeping the hummingbirds and bluebirds happy.  He loves the outdoors, nature, wildlife photography and occasional forays into the back country and mountains out west. He lives in South Bend where he shares his home with 4 dogs, Scooter, Ali, Paisley, Remi, and two cats Jag and Maive. His daughter, Mary is the pride and joy of his life.
