Dr. Joseph R. Kessinger

New York State College of Veterinary Medicine, Cornell, NY

Dr. Kessinger and his wife Susie live in Young Harris, Ga with their 15 chickens, 4 horses, 3 dogs, 2 cats, and a hive of honeybees. He is the associate veterinarian here at Union County Pet Hospital.

Dr. Kessinger is a well-respected veterinarian with many years of experience. After graduating Cornell Veterinary School, Dr. Kessinger practiced in Poughkeepsie, NY for 20 years, where he was the owner of a five doctor practice. He retired and moved to the Atlanta area, only to continue practicing veterinary medicine. He became the Director of the Sandy Springs Emergency Clinic and Staff Veterinarian for Internal Medicine.

Dr. Kessinger retired for the second time and moved to the North Georgia area. Dr. Barnes coaxed Dr. Kessinger into returning to work one more time as a welcomed addition to the Union County Pet Hospital. Currently, he is working part-time  and we do not want him retiring on us. xxFingers Crossedxx

His fun-loving, joking, and sincere demeanor makes him a favorite with clients and their pets. He enjoys gardening and beekeeping in his free time and is a proud father and grandfather.
