Dr. Jennifer Roy

Dr. Jennifer Roy is the owner of South Shore Animal Hospital with her husband, Peter Roy. She grew up locally and attended Marais des Cygnes Valley. She has a Biology degree from Kansas State and she obtained her Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine from Kansas State in 2005. She has worked in several practices in Kansas before making the leap of hospital ownership in 2012. She and her husband decided coming back to their home area was the perfect place to set up their new practice.

Together they have 5 children, 5 dogs, 9 cats, 1 rabbit, and free-range guineas and chickens.

Dr. Roy loves being a small animal general practitioner. She has come to have many “favorites” of every shape and size who make her heart melt when she sees them. She has a special love of dermatology and is a sucker for blind animals. She believes that puppy and kitten visits will never get old and she truly loves your pet. Dr. Roy can’t wait to love your pet like one of her own!
