Jeffrey Powers, DVM, Practice Owner

Caring for animals has been always been a way of life for Dr. Powers. Ever since he was a child he has always had a deep love for all animals. That is why, it wasn’t a surprise when he decided that he wanted to become a veterinarian.

Dr. Jeffrey Powers grew up on a small farm in St. Clair County, Michigan. He first inherited a love of animals from his parents and when he got his first dog Pepper, a beagle, in which they immediately developed an inseparable bond. Dr. Powers carried his love for animals all throughout his childhood and loved to read James Herriot's “All creatures great and small" books.

Dr. Powers decided to follow in his oldest sister’s footsteps who is in the health professions field as well. Dr. Powers graduated from Michigan State University in 1978 with a Bachelor of Science with High Honors, and in 1980 from Michigan State University with a DVM degree with Honors. At the age of 23, he worked under the guidance of Dr. Robert Johnson in Yale, Michigan. He soon established his own practice in 1980, where he would work out of a one room office and would drive the country roads of the thumb of Michigan from farm to farm.

Dr. Powers is the founder and owner of Beaver Island Veterinary Services and the owner of  Jordan Valley Animal Clinic, providing mixed animal veterinary services to the community of Beaver Island in Lake Michigan and East Jordan Michigan. He is also the founder and former owner of South Sanilac Veterinary Hospital in Peck, Michigan. He continues to care for all animals large or small which explains why his customers often describe him as very caring, sensitive and compassionate in the care of their animals.

Kenny Rogers, DVM

Dr. Kenny Rogers is a relief veterinarian for the Jordan Valley Animal Clinic and has been with us since June of 2015. He began working in veterinary services in 2011 after receiving his undergraduate degree in cell and developmental biology in 2008 and his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine in 2011, both from Michigan State University.

Dr. Rogers often tells his clients that he hopes to be the worst salesman ever because he doesn’t want to see them back again for the same issue - he would rather get to the root of the problem and fix it the first time. He loves the creativity that comes with the job and enjoys teaching his clients about the many facets of caring for their pets to help them lead long, happy lives.

Becoming a veterinarian was always a dream of Dr. Rogers, from a very young age. It is rumored that his mother has a polaroid photo of him dressed up as a vet in the 2nd grade, complete with a stethoscope that he borrowed from his family veterinarian.

In his free time, Dr. Rogers enjoys doing most anything outdoors: landscaping, jogging with his dog, cross-country skiing, swimming, fishing, biking, and camping.

Dr. Rogers lives in Acme with other half, Jenny. They have two cats and a black lab named Gabe who often goes on “urban safaris” through the neighborhood, which helps Dr. Rogers and Jenny meet their neighbors.
