  • Jeff Powers, DVM

    Last year, Torch Lake Veterinary Clinic was blessed with the opportunity to work with Dr. Powers. He regularly visits and performs relief work and provides surgical assistance to the clinic. Dr. Powers graduated with honors from Michigan State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 1980. He now resides on Beaver island and provides relief work for clinics in the northern Michigan area. In addition to the clinic he established (the Beaver Island Veterinary Services), he established and maintains Power's Hardware and Beaver Island Lumber Company. To say he is a man of many talents is an understatement. He has not only provided consultation services, aided veterinary students in their clinical year of schooling, but has benefited not only us, but the people of Honduras by establishing a spay/neuter program at Camp Bay, Roatan.
