Dr. Michael Groh offers veterinary dermatology services to patients in Blue Springs and surrounding Kansas City areas.

Dr. Michael Groh is a 1972 graduate of the University of Missouri College of Veterinary Medicine. As a captain in the USAF, he served 2 years as Chief of Veterinary Services at Carwell Air Force base in Ft. Worth, TX. Upon his return, he was co-owner of Blue Springs Animal Clinic, which became Blue Springs Animal Hospital 12 years later, when he sold to Dr. Jerry Carey. And the rest, as they say, is history.

Dr. Groh founded Midwest Veterinary Consultants, which was the start of his dermatology and allergy practice, and which continues today with offices in Springfield and Lee’s Summit. His clinical research interests are food allergy, diseases of the ear, and infectious disease control. In 1991 Dr. Groh began developing a new antibiotic combination which would become Baytril Otic. He was granted a patent for that invention in 1998. He also developed the first clinically successful hydrolyzed diet for the diagnosis and control of canine food allergy.

Dr. Groh is a past president of the Academy of Veterinary Allergy and Clinical Immunology and is a member of the American Academy of Veterinary Dermatology. Dr. Groh re-joined Blue Springs Animal Hospital and Pet Resort in June of 2010 as a dermatology consultant (and it feels like coming home). Dr. Groh is a lifelong area resident and presently resides in Raymore, MO with his wife, Shari, and their three pugs—Meat(head), Ivy, and Vince. He has three grown children—Sam, Joe, and Becki—all living in the area, and three gorgeous grandchildren—Joe, Lochlyn, and Hunter. He enjoys golf and a little invention known as the zero-turn radius lawn tractor. Now I ask you, does life get any better?
