Coconut Grove Animal Clinic was founded during the days of the 'Old Grove.' It has been rich in family tradition and pet care ever since. After graduating from the University of Minnesota, Dr. Michael Marmesh, Sr. opened Coconut Grove Animal Clinic in 1965. His wife, Sarah Marmesh, acted as office manager, and they maintained a small-town business in an area that quickly grew up around the clinic.
In 1978, the couple was joined by their son Dr. Michael E. Marmesh, Jr. after he graduated from The Ohio State University. The father and son pair worked together until Dr. Marmesh, Sr. passed away in August 2000. Michael's wife Nancy has taken on the job of business manager after recently retiring from her work as an elementary school gifted teacher.
Most recently Dr. Kate Marmesh (daughter of Dr. Marmesh, Jr.) has come to work with her father. She graduated from St. George's University in May 2005 and worked in Fayetteville, Tennessee until June 2008. She has returned home to be the third generation in this family business.
