Dr. Joe Jesse Owens, III is an exemplary Doctor of Veterinary Medicine, Inventor, Business Owner, and affluent public speaker. Dr. Owens is the proud son of Mr. Joe Owens, Jr and Sharon Owens, DVM, who inspired his career in veterinary medicine. Dr. Owens was born in Marlboro MA, and raised in Durham NC, with his 3 sisters. Dr. Owens attended and graduated from the illustrious Tuskegee University with his undergraduate degree in Animal Science in 2008, and again in 2012 with his Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine.

Upon graduating, Dr. Owens relocated to Las Vegas to begin his career. He has worked everything from relief, shelter medicine, emergency, private practice, and corporate day practice. In 2016, he made the decision to grow his career by not only practicing veterinary medicine but also practice ownership. Dr. Owens not only partnered with his college alum (Dr. Johnathan Snead) to co-own and operate 2 animal hospitals and 1 emergency hospital in Las Vegas and Henderson, Nevada, but he also invented the only appetite stimulation bowl on the market for pets; Enjoy-A-Bowl®. Enjoy-A-Bowl® allows you to treat your pet with tantalizing aroma of human food without the bad side effects. Dr. Owens has used his invention to solve numerous dietary discretion concerns and increase pet owner compliance for chronic treatment of multiple health issues induced from malnutrition. In 2017 Dr. Owens went on to pitch Enjoy-A-Bowl® on national television and won over the live audience along with a cash prize of $50k for seed funding on Steve Harvey’s Funderdome on ABC.
During his time off, Dr. Owens enjoys spending time with his wife (Leticia Owens), his newborn son (Mekhi Jesse Owens) and his 12yr old Australian Shepherd mix (Que). When he is not with his family, Dr. Owens enjoys working out, video gaming, online and in-person speaking engagements and traveling to veterinary schools to mentor future veterinarians.
