Dr. Jennifer McDaniel has had a lifelong love of animals. She aspired to be a veterinarian from a very young age. After her first family dog, Wembly, was diagnosed with cancer her focus switched from general veterinary practice to a specialty in veterinary oncology. She graduated from the University of Michigan with a degree in natural resources and the environment in 2004. In 2009 she earned a degree as a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from Michigan State University. Dr. McDaniel completed a one-year small animal medical and surgical internship at Friendship Hospital for Animals in Washington DC, followed by a one-year medical oncology internship at The Oncology Service. Under the instruction and mentorship of Dr. Gerald Post she finished a 3-year medical oncology residency and is a candidate to receive board certification from the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine in the specialty of oncology.
Dr. McDaniel currently shares her home with two dogs, and two cats. Walter is a very handsome basset hound who was deemed unfit for showing after his brother bit his ear. He now spends the majority of his time cuddling and being bossed around by his sister, Harper. Harper is a Jack Russell mix whom was rescued as a 4 month old puppy with a broken leg. She is now fully healed and enjoys bossing Walter around. Spike and Lilo are the cats of the house and enjoy sleeping.
