dr. michael brown: our team in arab, al

J. Michael Brown, DVM

Dr. J. Michael Brown assumed the leadership role of Arab Veterinary Hospital just prior to graduating from Auburn University in 1983. He has long considered this decision a privilege and opportunity of a lifetime. Practicing veterinary medicine in this small conservative town with our team for more than three decades has given Dr. Brown satisfaction, purpose, and frankly, more entertainment than any one person should ever enjoy.

Through the years, this practice has prospered, all the while embracing current advancements in the field. Great strides in technology and technique have given rise to the private practitioner’s amazing opportunities to advance in general practice, but Dr. Brown has been able to consistently remain grounded in his true practice philosophy. He will be quick to say that the art of practicing quality veterinary medicine and surgeries is not about raw numbers, data, and target milestones, but rather it is the art of understanding one’s place. He fully understands this profession is merely the conduit through which he is able to forge lasting and meaningful relationships with clients who become friends. He will also tell you veterinary medicine is a really fun-filled, fast-paced, challenging occupation but ultimately it is the friendships, old and new, that bring the most joy and offer the greatest reward.

Jonathan Zeiger, DVM

As an Associate Veterinarian, Dr. Jon Zeiger has been with Arab Veterinary Hospital for many years.  He started in 1985 after earning his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree at Auburn University that same year.  Convinced that veterinary medicine was the avenue through which he could best serve God, Dr. Zeiger and his family moved to Southeast Asia in 1995 to help poor farmers grow better crops and establish healthier lifestyles.  While there, he worked primarily with goats and dogs, but he did help the occasional water buffalo.  The hunting dog breeding program on their Asian farm became a family activity, and the cleaned dining table occasionally served as an operating room with his wife (a RN) and four children as helpful veterinary technicians.

After fifteen wonderful years in Asia, Dr. Zeiger rejoined our team in 2011.  Recognizing that God cares for us and entrusted the care for all His creation to us, Dr. Zeiger draws passion and conviction in his career from Proverbs 12:10: “The righteous care for the needs of their animals.”
