As the practice owner of Pleasant Valley Veterinary Clinic, Dr. Carmichael no longer sees patients. However, he is still very active on the administrative side of things!

Dr. Brad Carmichael was raised in the Peters Township community where his father, Dr. James Carmichael, established Pleasant Valley Veterinary Clinic in 1973, making it the area’s longest standing veterinary practice. He earned his bachelor’s degree from Wake Forest University and then graduated with the honor of Phi Zeta from The Ohio State University School of Veterinary Medicine in 2000. After serving the role of the hospital’s director for many years, he acquired Pleasant Valley from his father in 2008.

“Dr. Brad”, as he is known at the clinic, is active in his community, and is a regularly scheduled speaker in the local schools. He also teaches practice management as a guest lecturer at the Pittsburgh Veterinary Technical Institute and sits on the Institute’s Accreditation Advisory Board. Brad was a member of The Ohio State University Alumni Society’s Board of Trustees from 2004 until 2010. He was the president of the Alumni society in 2008 and 2009. He also sat on The Ohio State University’s Veterinary Teaching Hospital’s Advisory Board. He currently lectures in the states of Ohio and West Virginia for Zoetis Animal Health on the topic of Lyme disease. He is a huge fan of all the Pittsburgh sports teams and Ohio State Football. In his spare time, Dr. Brad enjoys cooking, golfing, and spending time with his family.
