Who We Are

A few words about us...

Do you prefer spending time with companions that are four-legged?

Do furiously wagging tails and deep, throaty purrs make you smile?

Does the greeting you receive from your furry friend seem to melt away even the most stressful day?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you love your pet. At Animal Health Center, we know the feeling.

That’s because before we ever became veterinary professionals, we were pet parents, just like you. In fact, we still are!

Each one of us has our very own animal family member that we look forward to seeing at the end of the day.

It’s the amazing connection we all share with our pets that inspires us to always do our very best.

When you choose to partner with Animal Health Center, you’ll get friendly, personalized care.

We’ll get to know you and your pet so we can provide you with the best possible service.

You’ll find that we’re genuinely concerned about the wellbeing of our patients, and we love being a part of their lives.

Perhaps that’s why we’ve become the Watertown and Oconomowoc vet of choice to so many.

If you’re in the neighborhood, stop in and see us. Your Watertown veterinarian can’t wait to meet you!

      Thank you Dr Gooch and staff for a great first visit with my "little" pack. Everyone was friendly and calm. They listened to how my dogs are best approached and examined and followed my lead. This was important to me, very organized and professional. Thank you Dr Gooch for taking your time with all my questions.

      I was looking online for a vet to take my cat,Scooter to get checked because of some concerns that I had. My daughter,Katie helped me search and saw the high ratings that the Animal Health Center received,so I called and made an appointment. I got in within a few days.I got there and everyone was really nice and friendly. We finally got to see the doctor. He was very kind and gentle with Scooter and answered all of my questions and addressed my concerns. I feel happy and grateful to have found such a good veterinarian and a caring group of people and feel confident that my little guy is getting excellent healthcare. I would highly recommend the Animal Health Center for your pet's medical and health needs!! Thanks Dr. Gooch and staff for taking such good care of my furbaby!!

      The little wait I had was made up in professional and respectful curtesy. Knowledgeable without being pushy. Sir Ruffy Kitty Ill was very relaxed and behaved. And... he took his 1st antihistamine pill like a champ! Thank you, Elisabeth, Dr Gooch and the supportive front desks team. We’ll be back... ��

      Animal Health Center is simply the best! I cannot say enough great things about them. Many years ago we tried them when we moved to Watertown. A couple years later we moved out of Watertown, but there was NO chance we were going to look elsewhere for vet and boarding services. They treat your pet like their own pet, they treat you like family. The staff there are all professionals, who are highly skilled, caring individuals who always make time for you and your four legged family member. They truly are your partner in health care and boarding for your family pets. Thank you very much Animal Health Center for everything over the years, words cannot express our gratitude!

      The staff at the Animal Health Center are very caring. Yesterday I had to say goodbye to my best furry friend of 13 & 1/2 years and the staff was wonderful. They were honest with me about his quality of life and gave me all the time I needed to make that heartbreaking decision. I would recommend them to anyone. A big thank you to Dr. Gooch and staff that had the patience and understanding that I needed.
