Meet Our Veterinary Team

Between our two offices, we have three doctors on our veterinary team. Each veterinarian has her own unique areas of expertise to best serve your pet. Our very own Dr. Melissa Harrer completed her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine at Iowa State University and now specializes in internal medicine and surgery. She has two cats and a dog of her own.

Dr. Kristen Westergaard-Bladt is also an Iowa native and completed her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine at Iowa State University in 2012. Her interests involve internal medicine, ophthalmology, and surgery.

Dr. Donna Mertz was raised in Northwest Iowa on the family farm. She graduated from Iowa State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine. She practiced large animal medicine in Wisconsin for 13 years. For the last three years she has been practicing in Blair, Nebraska.

Veterinary Care Services Offered

We offer a wide range of both preventative and general medical services. One of the most common services we offer is our comprehensive wellness exams. They are ideal for staying on top of your pets over all health. We also provide vaccinations, parasite testing/treatment/prevention, and even dental care in our office to protect your pet against common oral diseases.

We also have a full pharmacy right here in our clinic, so you can enjoy the convenience of being able to obtain and fill your pet's prescription with us, thus saving you the trip to your local pharmacy.

Is your pet exhibiting behavioral problems? If so, then we recommend scheduling an appointment. We can check to ensure that your pet's behavior isn't being caused by an underlying medical issue. We also offer behavioral counseling services, so we can assist you in formulating a plan to improve your pet's overall behavior in your household.
