Hartel Veterinary Hospital was founded by Dr. Pat White and opened in 1985 and has continued at this location since then. We now have two full time employees: Kathy Schneider, licensed veterinary technician and Amber
Rathburn, the office manager and also a licensed veterinarian
technician . Kathy has been with us since 1988 and Amber started in
April of 2015. Those of you who know Karen realize we could never
replace her when she retired, but Amber has risen to the occasion and brings a fresh outlook and attitude to our office; we are thrilled to have her here. Denae Baker has also joined our staff. We are a little old fashioned here: we
believe that phone calls are better answered by a person. When you
call for an appointment, you will be talking to one of a small number of individuals: Amber, Kathy, Denae, Dr. Wyatt or Dr. White. We will give you answers to your
questions; if we don't know, we will find out, and if we can't find
out, we will recommend you to someone who hopefully can. We believe
that a patient's medical condition can be followed extremely well by a
small, dedicated staff who know the client and the patient by sight.
If we do not feel we are capable of giving your pet the care it requires, we will never hesitate to recommend referral to a specialist. If you are just not happy with the progress your pet is making, we will be happy to arrange a referral at your request. We should be partners in your pet's health and everyone at this office strives to be just that.
