About Our Clinic:
Dr. Ann Vetter established the East Towne Pet Clinic in 1996. In 2005, we moved across the street to a more spacious building, allowing us to offer boarding and doggy daycare in addition to veterinary care.
Dr. Ann Vetter
Dr. Vetter's goal is to provide compassionate care for all companion animals, whether dog, cat, rabbit, or non-traditional pet. She feels that pets are part of the family and strives to be "the other family doctor." She takes pride in her ability to work especially well with fearful cats.
She and her veterinarian husband, Dr. John Dally have a full house. They currently have a brilliant border collie: Floss, 1 cat: Hecade, and 6 pet chickens (Coco, Bleu, Peep, Cheep, Mrs. Tweety and Easy). Since 2000 they have expanded their family with 3 beautiful boys (Aiden, Declan and Cian). At the office, Dr. Vetter also has two cockatiels (Sydney and Lester.)
Dr. Liz Jacka
Dr. Jacka joined the East Towne Pet Clinic team in 2011 and practices here part-time. She and her husband, Jeff, have two cats whose names are Phoenix and Marcy, and two wonderfully energetic Mini Australian Shepherds named Zoe and Cria. When not at work, Dr. Jacka enjoys running, cycling, reading and spending time with family and friends.
Dr. Theresa Hover
Dr. Hover joined our clinic as a part-time veterinarian in 2013, and she has been an excellent addition to our team of doctors. Dr. Hover and her husband Ryan have a terrier mix named Pippin, and a turtle named Cameron at home. When Dr. Hover is not at work, she loves to spend time hiking, gardening, going horseback riding, and doing agility classes with little Pippin!
Nick started working for us in 2014, as a receptionist and weekend boarding staff. He recently graduated from MATC in the Veterinary Technician Program in May, 2016 and is now a CVT. He has one adorable cat at home, who is named Stuart. Nick enjoys biking, hiking, camping, reading, and watching movies with Stuart in his free time.
Steve started at the clinic in summer of 2017. He has been a veterinary technician in the greater Madison area for over a decade working both in clinics with companion animals and on farms with large animals. He lives in Madison with his wife Cindy and their 5 cats, 4 chickens and a rabbit. When he is not working with animals, Steve is a musician and endurance athlete.
Stephanie, Assistant and Boarding Manager
Stephanie has been working at East Towne Pet Clinic since 2005. After returning to school, she is now only at ETPC part-time. She developed our small dogs daycare and has managed our boarding facility for many years, in addition to filling other roles as needed as an assistant or receptionist. Stephanie has two fabulous mixed-breed rescue dogs: Sir Scruffington (the most magnificent dog ever) and Harvey Specklepaws (the dumbest -but still very lovable- dog ever.) She also has two formerly stray cats: Mamacita and Noodle Toes. Stephanie's favorite part of the job is being a "dog-friend" - especially helping anxious or reactive dogs feel more comfortable.
Steph has been working at East Towne Pet Clinic since August of 2017. As a recent graduate from UW-Madison with a degree in Life Sciences Communication, Steph is happy to be putting her love of animals to good use as a Veterinary Assistant. She lives in Waunakee with her boyfriend Erik, her horse, Kobi, and their two dogs, Chance and Bubbles.
Jessica started working at East Towne Pet Clinic in 2012 as a weekend receptionist and boarding staff. She is a veterinary student in the class of 2018 at the UW School of Veterinary Medicine and currently helps out at the clinic when she has time. Jessica has an energetic Australian Shepherd named Jasper. In her spare time she enjoys spending time with Jasper, who likes his trips to the dog park and agility classes. She also enjoys hiking, reading, and watching movies.
