Education

We are happy to work with local students from Central Cities Health Institute and Lincoln High School throughout the year.  Students join us as a job shadow to learn more about our profession and CCHI students rotate through our clinic as part of their internship program.  It is a pleasure to share our love for animals and health care with them.

Animal Medical & Surgical Clinic is proud to be the veterinarians of  choice for the Nekoosa Police Department K-9 unit.  Officer Berg and Ivo are a team trained in drug detection tracking.  Ivo is a German Shepard from the Czech Republic.  In support of the Nekoosa Police Department we provide Ivo with consistent wellness care to maintain good health.  We also provide other health services for Ivo as needed.

Tammy and Polly walked in the 2019 5K9 Walk-Run to raise money to help provide for the many animals sheltered at SWCHS. 

Kelly donates goods and volunteers her time and skills at the shelter whenever she can.

Community Involvement

The Animal Medical & Surgical Clinic supports SWCHS in many ways.  We sponsor the Pet of the Week ad in the City Times to help showcase adoptable pets.  Our employees support the local shelter in a variety of ways.
