Dr. Michael Groh


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

Dr. Michael Groh received his Doctorate degree in Veterinary Medicine in 1972 from 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?

Customer Reviews For Dr. Michael Groh, Veterinary Dermatologist, At Blue Springs Animal Hospital in Kansas City


We have gone from vet to vet to vet to ER vet in the last 3 months. We have been told our dogs have allergies time and time again. They have been on steroids and antibiotics for 3 months. I have 3 dogs with this issue and everyone saids it's uncommon for that but no one could find the problem. I saw the dermatologist Dr Groh today, who made a special trip for my dogs to be seen. He was very caring and knew what he was talking about. He had a diagnosis in about 5 minutes just talking to us about what we have gone through. He had a full diagnosis and medicine ready to go in less than 30 minutes. He was absolutely fantastic as is Dr Cook who we have recently switched to as our normal vet. Blue springs animal hospital is just fantastic and I highly recommend.

Yelp Customer Review for Dr. Michael Groh, Veterinary Dermatologits, Kansas City

What a wonderful facility for animals, especially if you have a complicated problem.  My dog Rocket  had suffered from multiple allergies for years and until we went to see Dr. Groh at this hospital he suffered a lot with allergies that I had no idea about. Everybody at this facility could not have treated Rocket  better.  It was a long road and finally we have the care and medicine Rocket  needed so badly.  He is so much better and I just wanted to say thank you to all of you, especially Dr. Groh, and all the staff at Blue Springs.

Dr. Groh was absolutely the most helpful care provider I have ever experienced with my dog. I have spent years and countless thousands of dollars trying to provide relief for my dog from unexplained itching and pain, and I finally feel like we have received real answers and relief! I am so thankful for the care we have recipients here and will be coming here exclusively from now on. Absolutely amazing! Thank you guys so much!


My dogs love Blue Springs Animal Hospital! Especially my bull mastiff. Recently they added a dermatologist (Dr Groh), he cured the skin & ear problems he's had for most of his life, what a relief! We love all the other doctors & staff too, everyone is nice & knowledgeable. Plus they're an all in one package, not only are they a high-tech hospital, with great doctors, they have a wonderful boarding facility, with doggie daycare, and a, what looks to be a trendy pet salon, although I don't have a dog that needs to be groomed, I have seen some awful CUTE doggies coming out of there! We give them 4 paws & 2 thumbs up! :-)

Everyone was very friendly. The wait time was short. Dr. Groh was extremely knowledgeable. He took the time to explain in detail everything going on with our shitzu. He was very personable and has a love for animals. His assistant was just as friendly and very intelligent. The hospital was very clean and nice. I will definitely make this establishment our Shitzu’s place of care.
