Meet the Team

Dr. Cornish

Native Iowan K.C. Cornish grew up in Sigourney, Iowa. He completed his undergraduate degrees in biology and chemistry at the University of Northern Iowa in Cedar Falls, Iowa, and he graduated from the Iowa State School of Veterinary Medicine in 1987. His first veterinary position was in a small animal clinic in McHenry, Illinois, but, eager to return to his home state, he soon accepted the invitation to join the staff at the Kimberly Pines Veterinary Hospital in Davenport, Iowa. Always having a strong sense of family, Dr. Cornish and his wife Karla wanted to explore the possibilities of getting even closer to home, so in 1991, they moved to Grinnell, Iowa where his folks lived, and they opened the All Pets Veterinary Hospital. Immediately, the Cornishes were delighted to find that Grinnell was the perfect home with great schools for their son and daughter as well as the friendliness and security a small town offers.

All Pets Veterinary Hospital was originally located in the old Meadowgold building at 733 West Street, but in 2000, the Cornishes built a brand new hospital just one block south on its current site at 611 West Street. Dr. Cornish is now in his 25th year of practice in Grinnell where he sees all small animals and specializes in exotics such as birds and reptiles.

Dr. Cornish is an avid fitness enthusiast who loves to swim, bike, and run daily. He participates in 5K and 10K runs as well as triathlons and masters swimming. He is a member of the Grinnell United Methodist church. The Cornishes have two grandchildren, two Border Terriers, two ferrets, one parrolet, and three cats....all named Blackie.
