Michael Funk

DVM & Co-Owner

Dr. Michael Funk is a Michigan State University graduate. Recognized as ‘Best Veterinarian’ of Long Island for eight consecutive years (2014 - 2021), Dr. Michael Funk uses exemplary core values to balance progressive veterinary medicine with practicality. As a pet owner himself, Dr. Funk understands how much pets mean to their families. That’s why he is dedicated to using a high-level of knowledge and experience alongside open client communication. Following the disaster of Hurricane Sandy, Dr. Funk led a relief effort recognizing the clinical needs of affected animals, as well as the irreplaceable bond between a person and their pet. Dr. Funk’s professional interests include wound-repair surgery, and neurology and seizure management. He is also trained and certified to perform Zeuterin, an alternative to traditional neuter procedure that is non-surgical and approved by the FDA. While Zeuterin is no longer available, Dr. Funk is always looking for cutting edge medical advances in this field.

In his spare time, Dr. Funk enjoys playing softball, hockey, and spending time with his wife, Bernadette, their daughter, and their two dogs, Sushi and Juno. He is also a sports fanatic and follows New Jersey Devils hockey, New York Mets baseball, and Michigan State University football and basketball.

Laura Gay Senk


Dr. Laura Gay Senk is the founding veterinarian of Farmingdale Dog & Cat Clinic and a University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine graduate. Initially, she practiced as an equine veterinarian before dedicating her professional energies to care for cats, both pets and feral. With professional interest in feline medicine and surgery, and a drive to help animals in need, Dr. Senk started a Trap Neuter Release (TNR) program that is still in place today. This is a low cost service that helps to control populations of feral and stray cat colonies on Long Island, and humanely works to end the cycle of pet overpopulation. She also volunteers for TNR programs with rescue organizations such as Last Hope Animal Rescue, All About Spay Neuter, and Animal Lovers League throughout the year.

Dr. Senk is a lover of all animals, no matter the species or breed. Her first pet was a shelter dog named Fang, who she describes as a Heinz 57 mixed breed. Dr. Senk enjoys exercising, horseback riding, skiing, snorkeling, clay sculpture, and writing.

James Kuehn


Dr. James Kuehn is passionate about making a difference in the lives of pets. Born and raised in Rockville Centre, Dr. Kuehn pursued a career in veterinary medicine at Iowa State University where he earned his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine. His professional interests include dentistry, nutrition, and feline medicine.

In his spare time, Dr. Kuehn savors time traveling, hiking, and spending time with his wife who is also a veterinarian! At home, Dr. Kuehn is a pet parent to two cats, Parsnip and Maisie.
