  • I take my two dogs, Stubby and Joe, to primary care. The Doctor is always very thorough and clear. He takes the time to answer my questions. The vet students and techs are also great. Also, I appreciate the full write-ups that are sent to my email after our visits.

    Just as your human primary care doctor cares for you, our small animal primary care service provides year-round veterinary care for your dog or cat. Our doctors will get to know you and your pet to help maintain their lifelong health. No referral is necessary for primary care.

    If the need arises for spaying or neutering, imaging services, specialty care, or emergency/critical care, your animal will have easy access to the full range of services in our hospital.

  • Dr. Welle

    Can’t say enough good about Dr. Ken Welle in the exotics department. He is by far the best and most skilled avian vet in the Midwest! Recently he identified an infection that my lovebird Elliott had and successfully treated it…. His ability to do blood draws on small birds with almost no stress is amazing.
