Dr. Judy Duderstadt, Medical Director

Dr. Judy Duderstadt joined our team in 2019 and became the medical director in 2023. Dr. Duderstadt was born in North Carolina but moved to Southeastern Michigan at a young age and grew up “downriver”. She accepted a job as a veterinary assistant after high school and continued to work in the veterinary field through college. She earned her undergraduate degree in biology from Wayne State University and obtained her Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine from Michigan State University. Upon graduation she earned the Boehringer Ingelheim “Primary Care Award”.

Dr. Duderstadt’s favorite part of being a veterinarian is helping pet owners provide the best possible care to their four-legged family members and developing lasting relationships with her clients. She has a special interest in Internal Medicine, preventative care and chronic disease management. Dr. Duderstadt has Cat Friendly, Fear Free, and RECOVER certifications. She is a member of the American Association of Feline Practitioners, American Veterinary Medicine Association (VMA), Michigan VMA, and SE Michigan VMA. Dr. Duderstadt has also been a member of the SEMVA Academy since graduation. This is the first institution in the State of Michigan to recognize and reward veterinarians for their commitment to advance their continuing education.

Dr. Duderstadt and her husband share their home with their two dogs (Luna and Demi) and their cat, Tiger. Outside of work she enjoys drinking craft beer and travelling to places where she can snorkel with marine life.
