Dr. Scott Goetgeluck

Veterinarian

Practice owner and veterinarian Dr. Scott Goetgeluck (the last name is pronounced as “Good-luck”) graduated with his doctorate from the University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine. He is a Michigan native and grew up in a rural town reminiscent of Ithaca. Dr. Goetgeluck is particularly interested in dentistry, surgery, and the so-called “bully breeds.” In his free time, he enjoys spending time with his wife and daughter, hiking, and doing home renovation projects, muscle cars, and motorcycles. He has a Pitbull named Mira, who he describes as energetic, sweet, full of life, and always good for a laugh.
