Dr. McManus received his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from Auburn University's College of Veterinary Medicine in 1964 and shortly after opened Apollo Pet Hospital & Resort. Dr. McManus brings a wealth of knowledge and experience as well as a great love for all animals to our practice. He has been our Medical Director and Lead Veterinarian throughout the years.
He holds a membership in several professional organizations including a Lifetime Membership in the American Veterinary Medical Association, the Alabama Veterinary Medical Association, and he is a long time member of the Huntsville Rotary Club. Additionally, he serves as an Elder of 1st Cumberland Presbyterian Church.
When Dr. McManus isn't at the hospital (which is very rare), you can find him spending time with his wife of 32 years, his children, 15 grandchildren, and 9 great-grandchildren. He also enjoys working in his gardens or doing a little bit of fishing in his spare time.
A fun fact about Dr. McManus is that he is famous for his one-liners and "ISM'S" such as..."Fit as a fiddle, but with a few rusty strings" or "Don't expect unless you inspect."
