Kenton Flaig, DVM
Dr. Flaig came to Portville in 2004 to take over when Dr. Tom Clark retired. He and his family live in Portville with their two cats, Eddie Sanchez, and Shelby, and their dogs, Annie May, and Suchi.
He graduated from the University of Minnesota's College of Veterinary Medicine in 1974 and finished a year long internship in medicine and surgery at the Animal Medical Center in Manhattan a year later. After that he practiced in Staten Island, NY, where he founded Gateway Animal Hospital.
1997 came and Dr. Flaig retired and moved to Las Vegas with his family. They spent the next seven years living in Las Vegas enjoying the sun, the casino buffets and the desert until the kids got to the age where it was smart to find a safer place for children to grow and develop. That place was Portville!
Licensed Veterinary Technicians (LVTs):
LVTs are veterinary medicine's equivalent of a nurse. Like other medical professionals such as nurses, doctors, veterinarians and dentists, Licensed Veterinary Technicians are required to have graduated from an accredited college, to have passed New York State Department of Education's licensing examination and take continuing education to maintain their skills.
