Dr. Michael Cooper, DVMDr. Michael Cooper, our Chief of Staff, purchased Portage Veterinary Clinic in 1985 when it was a dairy clinic, and transformed it into the trusted small animal veterinary practice it is today. He is a Portage native, having grown up here and he still lives here today. He attended the University of Wisconsin-River Falls for his undergraduate degree, and the College of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Minnesota for his DVM degree.

Dr. Cooper's professional interests include general medicine and surgery, but his favorite part about being a veterinarian is interacting with his clients. Outside of work, he enjoys spending time with family, traveling, attending athletic events and concerts, and hiking and snowshoeing with his wife. They have a cat named Calae.
