Lodi Veterinary care supports ag, expands clinic
LODI - Lodi Veterinary Care (LVC), the largest veterinary hospital in Wisconsin, has recently expanded its clinic and practice area to better service the agricultural community. The practice employs 22 veterinarians and over 80 staff, technicians and assistants in the 28,000 square foot facility.
The public can see the expanded hospital, located at 705 N. Main St., Lodi, and visit all divisions — livestock, equine, and companion animal — during an open house from 1 - 5 p.m., on April 15.
“We are privileged to be a partner in the success of dairy and beef farmers,” says livestock doctor and LVC partner Scott Pertzborn. “This new facility is an investment in the future of livestock veterinary medicine and animal agriculture in our area.”
To its owners, veterinarians, staff, and clients, LVC is more than just a veterinary hospital; it is a trusted member of ‘America’s Dairyland.’ Within the past few months the livestock department at LVC has expanded their practice area to include all of Dane, Columbia, and Marquette counties - a much needed resource for farmers in that area.
Dr. Scott Earnest, a livestock veterinarian, commented, “livestock veterinary medicine is in shortage in many parts of our country. [We] are committed to providing services to shortage areas in South Central Wisconsin.”
Lodi Veterinary Care’s new facility is a representation of that commitment. The newly completed hospital is complete with: indoor cattle handling facility; embryo transfer certification and equipment; hospitalization and intensive care with 24-hour monitoring capabilities; and portable hydraulic chute.
While these features are specific to their livestock division, their equine and companion animal departments are equally equipped to service their clients with care, thoroughness, and state-of-the-art technologies that further support the local and extended community.
The event is open to the public and parking will be available. Activities include: educational demonstrations, refreshments, live animals, self-guided tour, and a Wellness Package raffle.
