Dr. Ginger Pelger joined our veterinary team in August 2022 and will soon be living in the Knightstown area. Dr. Pelger grew up in rural Ohio with a pet cat and horse. She then attended Mississippi State University where she received her Bachelor of Science from the College of Agriculture and later her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine and Masters of Science.

After practicing food animal medicine in Iowa, Dr. Pelger joined Elanco Animal Health, where she focused on technical services and research. Ready to slow it down a bit, she is now balancing semi-retirement activities and seeing patients, where she can focus on companion animal preventive medicine and geriatric care.

Dr. Pelger enjoys playing golf, gardening, baking, and travelling internationally. Her family includes husband Matt, two grown children Nick and Daly, and Australian Cattle Dog Cass.
