Michael Stenstrom, Medical Director


Dr. Michael Stenstrom, Medical Director of VCA Cherokee Animal Hospital, has cared for pets here as a general practitioner since 1994. A native of White City, Kansas, he became a veterinarian due to his love of animals growing up on his family’s farm. Dr. Stenstrom values the relationship that the veterinarians and staff at VCA Cherokee have with the clients and pets who come in each day and he loves working with the pets.

Dr. Stenstrom completed his undergraduate education at Kansas State University, where he received a Bachelor’s Degree in Animal Science in 1991. He continued his veterinary education at the Kansas State University College of Veterinary Medicine and was awarded his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine in 1994.

Surgery, ultrasound and radiology are among Dr. Stenstrom’s many veterinary medical interests. He is a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association, Kansas Veterinary Medical Association, American Animal Hospital Association, American Association of Feline Practitioners, and the National Rifle Association. Dr. Stenstrom is also a member of Trinity Lutheran Church.

Outside the hospital, Dr. Stenstrom enjoys spending time with his family and friends, gardening, landscaping, fishing and watching KSU athletics. His animal companions include his four cats, Cricket, Max, Saffron and Banshee, and two Wirehaired Pointing Griffons, Thatch and Rocha. He and his wife, Dr. Kristol Stenstrom, also a veterinarian, are the parents of three children, Sofia, Arik and Kjell.
