Dr. Fedore graduated from Niles High School in 1971, Southwestern Michigan College in 1973 and Michigan State University in 1977. Right after vet school Dr. Fedore moved to Middlebury, Vermont to practice medicine. From 1977 to 1982 Dr. Fedore practiced veterinary medicine there until 1983 to move back home to work at Bergman Veterinary Medical Center. After some time at Bergmans, he decided to open up his own clinic, Fedore Large Animal Veterinary Services. Once the clinic was established Dr. Fedore became a referral site for equine colic along with other large animal surgeries. However, that is not where he drew the line for medicine. In 2016 Fedore Veterinary Services underwent an expansion to add a Small Animal wing which officially changed to Fedore Veterinary Services.
For As long as Jessica can remember she much preferred working with animals over anything else, especially horses. Jessica did anything she could to be close to them. She spent most of her early teen years working at the neighboring horse barn and in 2011, Jessica went to an accelerated veterinary technician school where she obtained her associates degree in animal science and became a certified veterinary technician. Jessica worked full time in an equine practice and part time at a small animal clinic. In 2019, Jessica started her next adventure of pursing her dream of becoming a veterinarian and attended Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine. It was a unique and diverse education where Jessica learned so many valuable lessons alone with working towards becoming the best veterinarian she can be.
During Jessicas free time, she enjoys hiking with my island dog (Joey), riding horses and hanging at home with my dog and cat. Jessica also enjoys trying new things and going on unplanned adventures. Jessica takes each day as it comes and face each challenge with an open mind. She hopes to be able to use her unique experience to offer quality veterinary care to pets large and small!
