Dr. Ryan Carpenter


I come to work everyday because I love to meet and interact with people that love animals as much as I do! I graduated from Michigan State in 2011 and have practiced at Family Friends Veterinary Hospital ever since. My interests include anything Bulldog, dermatology, surgery, and canine reproduction. I currently serve as the Chair of the Michigan Animal Health Foundation, which is the funding arm of the Michigan Veterinary Medical Association.  Outside of Family Friends I enjoy traveling with my wife Marcia, landscaping, cooking, and horse back riding. We are expecting our first child in January 2017! We have three dogs and a rabbit. Rascal, a French Bulldog, Lexie, a West Highland White Terrier, Bradley, a Cattle Dog mix, and Louie the rabbit!
