Deanna Clark, DVM
Dr. Deanna Clark was raised on a small dairy farm in central Wisconsin. As a small child caring for the farm animals and pets, she knew she wanted to become a veterinarian. She obtained a Bachelor of Science in Dairy Science from UW-Madison and her dream came true as she attended the UW-School of Veterinary Medicine graduating in 2004. From there she practiced only on Bovines, and quickly realized how much she missed companion animals. She then worked at the Lake Mills Veterinary Clinic as a mixed animal veterinarian for the next 13 years.
Her passion in canine sports, athletes and injuries grew and in 2013 she received a certification in Canine Rehabilitation Therapy –which also covers cats and other species. (Rehabilitation therapy is like Physical Therapy for people and involves focused study on musculoskeletal injury diagnosis, pain relief and recovery.) She has since become more focused on small animal medicine and really enjoys all facets of general practice. “I really enjoy getting to know my patients and clients and thrive in a team environment working together to determine what is best for a particular patient.” She tremendously enjoys behavior and helping people manage puppyhood through senior stages. She became certified in Low Stress Handling in 2018. She is open minded and likes to include integrative and more natural therapies. In 2017 she earned her degree alongside Dr. Brett Ellis in Veterinary Spinal Manipulative Therapy (which is chiropractic therapy and functional neurology) and decided to come join the Team at Veterinary Associates in May 2018. In her free time she enjoys family time including their cats, four pointer mixes and chickens. She also enjoys competing in skijoring with her pointers and sharing her passion for canine sports.
