Dr. Schmunk was born and raised in Ohio and attended Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine. He and his wife, Tonda, moved to North Carolina and in 1980 he opened his own animal hospital, North Davidson Veterinary Hospital (now Community Veterinary Partners).
His love and care for all types of animals (dogs, cats, pocket pets, birds, chickens, goats, pigs, etc.) has earned him clients that travel from out-of-state to his practice. Dr. Schmunk has three children and two grandchildren.
