After the loss of his dog when he was five years old, Brian Siever decided he wanted to become a veterinarian when he grew up. Dr. Siever earned his bachelor’s in animal science from the University of Illinois Champaign-Urbana, where he met his wife, Cindy, who worked there as an ER and ICU veterinary technician. Dr. Siever began veterinary training at the Royal Veterinary College in London, England. He transferred to the University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine where he graduated with a doctorate in veterinary medicine in 1999. Dr. Siever moved to Galesburg, Illinois, and started his veterinary career at Knox Pet Clinic. He is a member of the Illinois State Veterinary Medical Association and the American Veterinary Medical Association.
Dr. Siever and Cindy were married on a beach in the Bahamas in 2000 and have 4 children, Rebecca, Alison, Griffin, Seth, and 2 grandchildren AJ and Maleah. The Siever family lives on a farm outside of Knoxville where they enjoy gardening and raising farm animals including chickens and ducks. The family also has two indoor cats, three barn cats, and four dogs including two Great Pyrenees who guard the barn animals.
In his free time, Dr. Siever enjoys bike riding, shooting sports, woodworking and wire bending. He is also a member of Community Bible Church in Knoxville.
