Meet the friendly staff at Flowood Pet Hospital! (More on the rest of our team members coming soon!)
Dr. Mitch Clemmer was born and raised in Jackson, MS. After graduating from Murrah high school, he attended Mississippi State University and received a BS degree in Dairy Science, followed by a masters degree in Animal Physiology. He then joined the first class in the new College of Veterinary Medicine. In 1981, he graduated from the Mississippi State University College of Veterinary Medicine and moved back to the Jackson-metro area. Up until 2001, he had several businesses, including a veterinary relief services business, a house call veterinary practice, and two pet specialty businesses. In 2001, he opened the first Banfield Pet Hospital inside the Jackson PetSmart store. He opened a second office in the Flowood PetSmart store in 2004. He sold those back to the corporate headquarters in 2014 and began his first adventure as an employee in these same hospitals. Soon realizing that practice ownership was his calling, Dr.Clemmer began the year long journey toward opening Flowood Pet Hospital and Resort. He and his wife of 42 years, Sherri, have three children (Chelcie (Chris), Seth (Mandy), and Sully (Christine), and 6 grandchildren (Brixton, Liam, Larkin, Miriam, Annabelle, and Ryleigh). They love their 4 dogs (Hogan, Luther, Lillian, and Myrrhtle), 3 cats (Ace, Mickey Blue, and Topey), 30 miniature horses, 2 turkeys, and too many chickens. They will soon acquire their first pygmy goat… to be named Confetti!
'For the past 36 years, I have loved being a veterinarian and have had the opportunity during this time to work with wonderful team members in all of my endeavors. They enabled me to grow not only as a veterinarian, but also as a business owner. Realizing I was not cut out to be an employee and that I was too young (?) to retire, I decided to start my practice life over in Flowood and provide the best care for the pets of my former clients and future clients as well.”
