Associate DVM

Dr. Troy Telenko was born in El Paso, TX and moved to Charlotte, NC with his mom when he was 7 years old. He recently relocated to Denver, NC with his wife, Melissa after he graduated from KSU-CVM in May of 2021. On August 24th, he and his wife had their first son Forrest and could not be more proud. Troy initially went to school for music theory and production, but realized halfway through community college after rescuing a dog, and late best friend Shiva, that he’d rather pursue something to do with his life-long love and interest for animals. What Dr. Telenko loves most about veterinary medicine is diagnosing challenging cases and seeing a pet’s health turn around after treatment, as well as sharing a client’s joy when their beloved pet’s health turns around- and we helped!
