The star of The Incredible Dr. Pol shares his amusing, and often poignant, tales from his four decades as a vet in rural Michigan. Dr. Jan Pol is not your typical veterinarian. Born and raised the Netherlands on a dairy farm, he is the star of Nat Geo Wilda€™s hit show The Incredible Dr. Pol and has been treating animals in rural Michigan since the 1970s. Dr. Pola€™s more than 20, 000 patients have ranged from white mice to 2600-pound horses and everything in between. From the time he was twelve years old and helped deliver a litter of piglets on his familya€™s farm to the incredible moments captured on his hit TV show, Dr. Pol has amassed a wealth of stories of what ita€™s like caring for this menagerie of animals. He shares his own story of growing up surrounded by animals, training to be a vet in the Netherlands, and moving to Michigan to open his first practice in a pre fab house. He has established himself as an empathetic yet no-nonsense vet who isna€™t afraid to make the difficult decisions in order to do whata€™s best for his patientsa€”and their hard-working owners. A sick pet can bring heartache, but a sick cow or horse could threaten the very livelihood of a farmer whose modest profits are dependent on healthy livestock.
