Jeff Peacock, DVM with DogDr. Peacock, recently retired, has been a part of the Crossroads Animal Hospital family for over 25 years.

As a freshman in high school, a veterinarian offered Dr. Peacock a job in his clinic. It didn't take long for him to realize he wanted to become a veterinarian himself. The profession was the perfect way for him to care for animals while also being able to help pet owners in need!

Dr. Peacock grew up in rural Marion County, Ohio. After he was set on the veterinary career path by his first employer, he attended Ohio State University's College of Veterinary Medicine. After graduation, he took a position at an animal hospital in South Bend, Indiana. Six months later, Dr. Peacock was drafted into the armed forces and spent two years in the U.S. Army Veterinary Corps. Two years later he returned to his position in South Bend before moving on to work in Brecksville, where he became a partner in the hospital. In 1990, Dr. Peacock and his partners founded Crossroads Animal Hospital and he became the sole owner in 1992.

Dr. Peacock lives with his wife of 49 years, Pam. They have one son, Brad, who is married with three boys and works as a software salesman.

Outside of veterinary medicine and practice management, Dr. Peacock enjoys playing golf, fishing, reading, traveling, and going on family vacations. His most memorable trip occurred in 2012, when he and his wife drove out West, covering 9,000 miles in five short weeks with only a vague itinerary!
