Dr. Michael Hargrove, DVM, Owner, North Shore Veterinary Hospital
Value Creation in Veterinary Practices

Dr. Hargrove was raised in Colorado, initially on a dairy farm, and then as a city kid surrounded by animals. While in veterinary school at CSU, he joined a national society (then known as the Delta Society) devoted to the connections and interactions between people and animals. He went on to co-found a community group (the Larimer Animal-People Partnership) whose main purpose was to educate people about, and celebrate, the bond between humans and animals. After graduation, he worked as an associate veterinarian at Lakeland Veterinary Hospital in Brainerd, MN. In January of 1993, he moved to Duluth, MN and joined the staff at North Shore Veterinary Hospital; he became a partner in 2004 and has been the sole owner since 2009. Dr. Hargrove's goal is to continue to develop the culture of compassion and high-quality care that recognizes and supports the unique role each pet plays in the life of their human companions.
