Dr. Ken Podkonjak


Dr. Ken Podkonjak was born and raised in Red Lodge, MT. After high school he attended the University of Montana in forestry. He was employed by the US Forest Service and became a smoke jumper. This helped fund his college years, particularly as he transferred to Washington State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine. For the past 12 years he has been a part of the Yellowstone Valley Veterinary group. Most recently he was given the opportunity to become part of the Friendship Veterinary Center team in Laurel. Dr. Ken loves the Veterinary profession and looks forward to serving the people and animals in our region!
