Veterinary Medicine, family, community and faith have always been the primary focus for Dr. Schroeder, although not always in that order. Growing up in Colerain Township, he has had a strong commitment not only to the veterinary profession, but to his community. Raised on a farm, Dr. Schroeder realized his love for animals and their care early in life through 4-H. He graduated from Colerain High School before attending Ohio State University where he received his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine in 1975. After returning to Cincinnati and working with another veterinarian, Dr. Schroeder built Peach Grove Animal Hospital in 1979. Over the years, he has been honored to work with a number of veterinarians, including Dr. Mary Kelley, now retired, and in 2008, turned the reigns of management over to Dr. McArthur.
Dr. Schroeder and his wife, Pam, have been blessed with two wonderful children and now two grandchildren who truly hold their hearts. He has been active locally with The Exchange Club of Northwest Cincinnati, Clippard YMCA, SON Ministries, Nate's Toy Box and White Oak Christian Church. Through church, he has had the opportunity to make several mission trips to Haiti. He has served on a number of professional organizations including The Ohio Animal Health Foundation where he served 1 year as president, the Cincinnati Veterinary Medical Associated where he served at several positions including president and was a founding member of The Greater Cincinnati Council for Pets Helping People.
