    Some people take many years to know what they want to be when they grow up.  In Dr. Glenn Fahnestock’s case, his path was sealed when he helped his mom sew up their pet duck after it was attacked by a neighbor’s dog.  Since that humble beginning in Delaware County, PA, Dr. Fahnestock came up through the trenches in the veterinary field by starting out as a kennel worker in his local animal hospital.  He then progressed to Veterinary Technician while in high school and college and was also active with his local 4H sheep club achieving the level of State Champion in Sheep Fitting and Showmanship.

    After graduating from Delaware Valley College of Science and Agriculture in Bucks County, PA, Dr. Fahnestock moved to Ithaca, NY to take a job at the NYS College of Veterinary Medicine at Cornell University as a Research Associate in Parasitology.  That research involved both veterinary and human medicine and Dr. Fahnestock co-authored many papers while working there.  He held that job for 2 years full time and the next 4 years part time while he was a student at the Veterinary College.  Upon graduation, he moved to Penn Yan to join EVC both on the road and in the clinic and remained that way for 18 years.  He has since moved full time into the small animal hospital but still consults on Large Animal cases and sees sheep, goats and other farm animals that are brought to the clinic.

    One of his main interests at the clinic is the PennHip procedure for early detection of canine hip dysplasia.  A certified PennHip practitioner, Dr. Fahnestock recommends all breeders and those thinking of breeding their dog visit their site.

    Dr. Fahnestock is a Medical Reserve Corps volunteer and currently serves on the Yates County Public Health Emergency Operations Planning Committee to bring a veterinary perspective to health emergencies. In his spare time, he enjoys shooting, hunting, fishing and spending time with his family.
