Dr. Michael Zimlich was born and raised in Mobile, Alabama. He is a graduate of Murphy High School. Dr. Zimlich completed his undergraduate degree in Marine Science at Troy State University in 1998, where he completed graduate level research in parasitology. Upon completing his doctorate of veterinary medicine at Auburn University in 2002, he moved back to the Gulf Coast, marrying the former Jennifer Grimes and setting up a home on Fish River in Baldwin County. Dr. Zimlich, a certified USDA veterinarian, worked in a mixed animal practice, where his focus was on large animal work, completing many hours in the field, tending to animals ranging from cows and horses to llamas and pot bellied pigs. He transitioned to a small animal practice after the arrival of his daughter, Delaney. During this time, he concentrated his focus on feline medicine and dentistry, as well as pain management. He worked with Pfizer/Zoetis to instruct fellow veterinarians in the new and innovative medicines in pain management for their practice. Dr. Zimlich moved back to Mobile in 2014, where he now lives on Fowl River with his family and pets.
