Our mission is to provide the highest quality medical and surgical care to our patients while providing our clients with educational guidance and assistance in all aspects of animal care and ownership, including public health awareness. We strive to exceed our clients’ expectation by treating owners and their pets with respect, honesty, compassion; and treating all animals as if they were our own. Our services are provided in a clean, safe, and friendly environment and our goals are to work as a team, complementing each other’s talents and retaining a positive attitude. We have made veterinary medicine our life work, because we love the animals that are given to our care.
Wheat City Veterinary Clinic was opened in May 2006 by Dr. Sherry Wurtz.
"In 2006 we renovated the building from a seasonal restaraunt into a vet clinic. For months (and years) afterward we had to endure the jokes about ordering burgers and milk shakes!
Our business grew slowly but steadily as we worked hard to provide excellent health care for all our furry patients. We operate as a mixed animal practice, which means I do both small and large animal medicine. The majority of the large animal calls are done on the farm, but I will also work out the back of a livestock trailor right here in the parking lot of the clinic. I could tell you some very interesting stories...
By 2009 we had outgrown our building and it was time for an expansion. So, the first phase of a 2 part expansion was undertaken.
The clinic square footage was basically doubled, and a beautiful surgery room was one of the rooms added. When the expansion was done I even had my own office -for the first time in my life! Also, we now had seprate kennel rooms for dogs and cats which is very important for their stress levels when they have to be hospitalized.
The clinic clientele was growing tremendously at this point and it was very gratifiying to get positive feedback from people for our services.
By 2014 the 2nd part of the clinic expansion was done which included renovating and expanding the whole front area. The front of the clinic is now beautiful, with large windows and lots of room for pet food shelves, seating, pet products, dogs, people, etc.
It is wonderful to have the front part of the clinic renovated, but after that summer I swore I would never go through major renovations again!!
This year the clinic celebrated our 17th Anniversary!!
We have a beautiful building now, staffed by wonderful people and everyday we get to help animals. After all, everybody that works here is a crazy-animal-lover and we get to indulge in our passion. Hopefully we will be here for many more years providing compassionate health care, and excellent customer service to all our patients and clients. I am grateful for all the loyal clients that have supported us over the years, and we will continue to work hard to earn people's trust."
