An addition was undertaken in the 1990's to expand the small animal surgery suite, companion animal isolation and boarding. A new addition for large animal work was completed in February 2020 for Equine hospitalization, and a neonatal scour ward. The Minden Veterinary Clinic was built in 1978, and was recently renovated (2017) to include a second small animal examination room. The large animal Facilities were renovated in 2014 to include the Daniels Hydraulic chute. It also sits on 3 acres outside city limits of Minden NE. We regularly update our equipment to enjoy making practice life better for our clients and staff. Both locations have haul-in facilities with hydraulic Daniels chutes for working cattle as well 2 portable hydraulic Daniels chutes, a portable hydraulic calf tub and chute, and a portable Tuffy Tilt Table.

Other Personnel :  The new associate(s) will join 3 other DVM's, 3 Veterinary Technicians, 2 large and small animal veterinary assistants. We are always full with boarding patients, so we maintain a staff or 4-6 kennel helpers such that there are no responsibilities for the veterinarian to help with kennels or discharge those patients on weekends. A groomer is on staff full time and operates her own business out of the Holdrege Veterinary Clinic P.C. 
Practice strengths and emphasis of the business:
 We accommodate and treat our large animal clientele the same as our small animal clientele, and try to treat everybody as our most important client that day! We have a very strong presence in our vibrant agricultural community.  
Practice Area:  Both clinics are in very family oriented towns that offer a small town feel with many amenities. Holdrege (the county seat) is a thriving community located in south central Nebraska in Phelps county; only a short drive from the nearest city, Kearney. We have a tremendous new hospital, YMCA and performing arts center in Holdrege. There are many great golf courses, and Harlan County and Johnson Lakes offer great boating fishing and swimming within 45 minutes.
