Meet Our Staff:


Dr. Michael E. Staub

Veterinarian/Practice Owner

Dr. Staub is a 1988 graduate of University of Illinois.  In 1992 he purchased Honey Creek Animal Hospital and has been practicing quality, compassionate veterinary medicine ever since.  He enjoys the challenges of veterinary medicine and the unique experiences it brings. He enjoys the learning experience that daily practice brings. Dr. Staub focuses on internal and geriatric medicine, as he enjoys the diagnostic challenges they present! 

 "Veterinary medicine has made me a kinder, gentler person... not just with animals, but with people as well.  There are days that are truly frustrating, but just as many that are very humbling.  Animals are great teachers, the world could learn alot..."  

He is married to Candice, whom he met at Honey Creek Animal Hospital and recently celebrated their 30th anniversary of marriage. They have six children and a houseful of rescued furry, and not so furry, friends! The Staub’s are actively involved in rescue work. While operating their own Great Dane and Mastiff rescue, they too are involved in a multitude of breed rescues across the midwest. Dr. Michael and Candice believe in advocating for an END to puppy mills and horse slaughter, advocating for stiffer penalties for dog fighting and animal neglect of all kinds!   



Candice Staub

Committed to the rescue world, Candice brings her high energy and compassion giving voice to those with none!
