Dr. Corbett received his DVM from MSU’s College of Veterinary Medicine in 2006, his MS from MSU in 2010, and started at Ann Arbor Animal Hospital in October, 2016. His areas of interest include internal medicine, gastrointestinal diseases and surgery.
Like so many veterinarians, Dr. Corbett knew he wanted to care for animals from a young age: “I wanted to become a veterinarian since the time I was 8 years old and we took our dog Heidi to MSU for the first time. Never wavered from the goal.”
Dr. Corbett says that he came to work at the AAAH ER because of our reputation for providing the best care for our patients and allowing our veterinarians the opportunity to practice the highest quality of medicine. His co-workers have helped: “There is great teamwork here. Veterinarians work together to help one another and the support staff is fantastic.”
While not treating emergency cases here at the ER, Dr. Corbett takes care of many animals at home, including Roisin, an 8-year-old Husky mix; Leona, a 13-year-old DSH; Coconut, a 12-year-old Corgi/Beagle; and Morgan, a 1-year-old mixed breed “3-footed pirate dog”.
Dr. Corbett stresses, “You know your pet better than anyone else. Any major variations from your pet’s routine behavior could indicate illness and should be reported to your veterinarian.”
