Who is Dr. Petra Mickova?

Petra Mickova is a professional veterinarian, who currently works at the Planned Pethood Plus Clinic, located in Wheat Ridge, Colorado, owned and operated by her husband, Jeff Young. Petra and Jeff are the stars of the Animal Planet reality TV show “Dr. Jeff: Rocky Mountain Vet”, aired since 2015.

Early Life, Age, and Education

Although her exact birth date and place are unknown to the media, according to reports, Petra was born in Bratislava, now Slovakia, in 1970, so she is 48 years old. Although she has become a reality TV star in the recent years, there is no information about Petra’s childhood, parents or education as well. However, it is known that she developed a love for animals at an early age, and since then has strived to help injured or diseased animals, which later brought her to the USA and into the embrace (literally) of Dr. Jeff Young.

First Meeting with Dr. Jeff Young

Jeff opened his clinic in 1990, and eventually started looking for employees. His clinic expanded, and besides helping pets, they also started rescuing wild or abandoned animals. Petra, now an accomplished veterinarian, came to his office looking for a job but eventually found much more. Petra soon became an employee at the clinic, and as the time passed her relationship with Jeff became more than professional.


Relationship with Jeff Young

With every passing year, Petra’s role at the clinic improved, and she quickly moved from a simple staff member to a high-grade surgeon. Petra and Jeff eventually became a couple, which ultimately led to marriage.

Popularity Through Marriage

If it wasn’t for Jeff and his clinic, we might never have heard of Petra; however, thanks to the success of the clinic, they were chosen by the Animal Planet channel as the basis for the show “Dr. Jeff: Rocky Mountain Vet”, which has been on the air since 2015. Petra and Jeff married in 2014, and though they don’t have any children together, Petra is quite close to Jeff’s children from his previous marriage, especially daughter Melody, who is also a part of the clinic.

Jeff Young Cancer Diagnosis

Back in 2016, Jeff announced during one of the episodes of the famed reality series that he had been diagnosed with B-cell Lymphoma; according to reports, doctors found an 8cm mass in his lungs. Because of the diagnosis, he had to cut his recognizable grey locks and is now almost completely bold, facing chemotherapy. He said that he would rather loose hair than life, when asked if he feels sad that he had to cut his hair. Petra remained with Jeff during these hard times, and is his solace and strength, assuring him that all will come to pass.

Petra Mickova Net Worth

Though a valuable member of the clinic, Petra’s earnings haven’t been enormous as she is only a part of the clinic, and not its owner. However, her wealth has increased in recent years, especially since the launch of the reality TV series. So, have you ever wondered how rich Petra Mickova is, as of mid- 2018? Authoritative sources estimate that her her net worth is now close to $1 million, accumulated from her work as a veterinarian over the last 20 years.

Petra Mickova Husband, Jeff Young

Now that we have covered all major information about Petra, let’s share a few details about Petra’s husband, Dr. Jeff Young.

Jeff Young was born on the 14th April 1956, in Indiana USA; he grew up on a farm, falling in love with animals at an early age. His mother, Ester Stevens, remarried and Jeff grew up with a stepfather, and a step-brother Jay. His love for animals has been an ever-growing one, and since his early childhood years, he would take home injured animals and try to heal them. This turned into a practice, and he is now a successful veterinarian who not only heals pets but also rescues wild animals. His clinic has so far attended to more than 165,000 surgical procedures. He got his veterinary medicine degree from Colorado State University in 1989, and the following year opened his clinic. After ten years of successful operations, Jeff launched Pethood International, and has opened clinics in Mexico, and Slovakia as well. Since then, he has become one of the most prominent veterinarians and reality TV stars. His net worth is estimated at close to $2 million.

1(On the tsunami experience): I've learned a couple of things. And one of the things I have learned is that every experience has pluses and minuses. If we focus on the minuses, we go down the spiral. But if we are able to focus on the pluses, we can become stronger and put more meaning into our life. So, we have choice, and sometimes it seems very hard, but the best way to heal physically or emotionally is to keep positive.
2I love to dance. I can dance for, like, four or five hours nonstop without even drinking water. It's a beautiful, beautiful thing.
