Who We Are

Ensuring consistency, quality, and good communication

Greenfield Animal Hospital was founded in 1956 and has served the Metro Detroit area with pride ever since.

Dr. Jillian Shencopp started as a kennel attendant when she was just 16 years old. She worked in many roles at the hospital until leaving for MSU. After graduating, she came back to Greenfield Animal Hospital as a proud Veterinarian in 2016. In June of 2021, Dr. Shencopp and her partner, Evie Fredenburg acquired Greenfield Animal Hospital from the previous owner, Dr. Michael Hood. Dr. Hood knew it was important to keep Greenfield Animal Hospital “in the family” and out of corporate hands.

As one of the last independently owned veterinary hospitals in the area, our focus continues to be delivering high-quality, advanced medicine with a focus on client education and stress-free visits.

Stress-free handling techniques are used for every visit starting with your puppy or kitten’s every trip to Greenfield. This not only eases the fear for your pet but helps create a bond and trust with our staff which makes each visit as enjoyable as possible.

Our doctors have a passion for Behavioral Medicine and believe in treating not just the physical but also the mental health of our patients. We have a wide variety of techniques and medications that can help with issues like separation anxiety, fear-based aggression, and many more. We partner with K9 Turbo Training to provide top-notch assessments and training techniques for any issue your pet may have.
