Dr. Jan Pol’s Net Worth & Salary
Dr. Jan Pol is the man on this list with the least requirement for an introduction. Born on September 4, 1942, in Drenthe, Netherlands, Jan-Harm Pol grew up around animals in a dairy farm. After helping deliver a piglet, Pol gave recognition to his dreams of becoming a veterinarian. He came to Michigan, the USA as an exchange student at the Mayville High School.
There he would meet his future wife Diane Pol who he would later marry in 1967. He returned to Netherland to complete his education, graduating from the Utrecht University Veterinary program. He came back to Michigan and after 10 years of working under someone else, he began his own veterinary practice which began from the couple’s own home.
Slow but steadily his practice grew to the present day which has had over 20,000 clients. Eventually, tales of The Incredible Dr. Pol began to get locally famous which gave birth to the reality series by the same name in 2011 on National Geographic. Since then Dr. Jan Pol has become a nationally and internationally recognizable veterinarian. Through his success, he enjoys a massive net worth of around $1.5 million with over $30,000 salary from the series alone.

Dr. Jan Pol and his wife Diane Pol are parents to three children; Charles Pol, Kathlene Pol, and Diane Pol Jr. Surprisingly, all three of their kids are adopted. Charles and Kathy were adopted at birth whereas their eldest daughter, Diane Pol Jr. was the daughter of a friend they fostered until she was 18 years old before finally adopting her.
Diane Pol’s Net Worth & Salary
Diane Pol is the wife of Jan Pol and who he has been with since the beginning. Born on February 6, 1944, in Mayville, Michigan, Diane Pol must have never even thought that this exchange student she met in her high school would be her husband and that because of him she will get to become a celebrity.
Nevertheless, Diane Pol was as instrumental to her husband’s success as he was to her’s. Dr. Jan Pol initially wanted to start his practice in New Zealand. He could have gone anywhere else in the world too but it was his wife, Diane Pol’s home state in Michigan where he began his career. He began his career right out of their family home’s garage.
Instead of complaining, she chose to support her husband who was making quick progress upgrading his practice to double-wide trailer space next door. It will soon become a booming business. Furthermore, Diane Pol still helps her husband out to this day with both their clinic and the show.
She is the administrative head of the Pol Veterinary Services and thus deserves an equally enticing net worth as her husband. She does get almost the same worth as it turns out that Diane Pol’s net worth is around $1 million with a salary of $25,000 per episode from the show.
Charles Pol’s Net Worth and Salary
The only son of Dr. Jan Pol and Diane Pol, Charles Pol you should be thanking behind the existence of ‘The Incredible Dr. Pol.’ Born on March 6, 1979, in Central Michigan, Charles Pol grew up helping his father in his practice so he had a real talent for helping animals. However, growing up he sought out a different career path which was in the entertainment business.
He worked for Nickelodeon for a brief amount of time where he got his million-dollar idea which was to make a reality documentary series out of his father’s interesting and colorful life as a veterinarian. This was after he already had gained very useful experience after working for companies like Paramount Pictures and Mirage Enterprises.
Charles Pol’s net worth through all his net worth stands at around $1 million. He is the executive producer of the show who also eventually stars in the series. As one of the most hands-on executives that we’ve seen, Charles Pol is certainly deserving of his large net worth. We don’t know his salary as a producer, but from a reality star’s perspective, he gets a salary of around $15,000.
Charles Pol will certainly live up his life happily with that amount of net worth especially now that he is a father. Charles Pol married longtime girlfriend Beth (Oakes) Pol in 2018, he became father to the couple’s first child, a daughter born on October 29, 2019. Their daughter’s name is Abigail Pol.
Dr. Brenda Grettenberger’s Net Worth and Salary
Dr. Brenda Grettenberger is a doctor who has been part of Pol Veterinary Services for a long time. She was part of ‘The Incredible Dr. Pol’ since its inception in 2011, and the only original cast member still among the 2020 cast. Grettenberger was born in the Eastern Rapids area of Michigan in 1967. She has a degree in Veterinary medicine from Michigan State University in 1992.
We have to give kudos to Brenda Grettenberger for her loyalty to Dr. Pol. She certainly is every bit worthy of her $300,000 net worth. Besides, she does have a lucrative salary of around $10,000 per episode from the show. Furthermore, sources have reported that she earns an annual salary of around $80,000 a year.
Dr. Emily Thomas’ Net Worth & Salary
Dr. Emily Thomas is one of the biggest fan favorites of the show. Unfortunately, Dr. Emily Thomas left the show in 2019. Technically, Dr. Emily Thomas left the show long before that but she had already shot enough scenes for the 2019 season. This left a lot of fans confused who kept hearing the news of her leaving the show and yet appearing in the 2019 season.
After all the confusion, Dr. Emily Thomas took to her blog to explain the reason as to why she left the show. According to her, her life at the Pol Veterinary Service was hectic due to a large number of clients with only a few staff members. The camera crew was also not helping by coming in the staff’s way. However, Dr. Emily does not even slightly regret working there and even says that she was able to make a lot of friends from the show’s camera crew.
Dr. Emily Thomas may have left the show but she still was a fan favorite since 2015 till her departure in 2019. If she also was earning a reality star’s salary of around $10,000 from the show, then we can see how her net worth could be approximately $200,000. She has moved to Virginia and is currently working at the Warren Country Veterinary Clinic.
Moreover, she has sold her house in Michigan for $160,000 and is living happily with her husband, and their 3 children together; India, Oscar, and Alvin.
Dr. Nicole Arcy’s Net Worth & Salary
Last but certainly not the least; we have the newest veterinary doctor to the list, Dr. Nicole Arcy. Dr. Arcy became part of the Pol Veterinary services since June 2018 but was only brought to ‘The Incredible Dr. Pol’ since February of 2019. We don’t know what the show was thinking, hiding an instant hit like Arcy behind the curtains.
Since she is new to the show, there is still a lot we don’t know about Nicole. However, we do know that she holds a BSc in Zoology from Michigan State University-Lyman Briggs as well as a Master’s Degree in Public Health from the University of Missouri. Nicole Arcy’s net worth and salary are under review right now but give her a little time and we are sure it will reach an astounding amount.
However, we have to think that she makes at least the average salary of veterinarians in Michigan, USA which is around $85,000.
