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!

      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... ��

      The staff is warm caring and reassuring. Not only were they attentive to Wolfies´ physical care they were more than willing to help Wolfie and I stay together.Wolfie is a small Chi with a big attitude problem. They offered help and services to cope with the problem. While we were there he was treated with great patience and kindness. We are so lucky to have found them.They like what they do and it shows. Their concern for animals extends far beyond Wisconsins´ borders. They are a ¨special¨ group. They are more than a Veterinary business. They are the kind of people that make a difference and do it without a self-serving interest. They are more than five stars to Wolfie and myself.

      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.

      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.

They have been seen by Dr. Gooch for their health issues; last year he saved my Sobie when she was very sick. Yes, I also like their staff, they are very helpful with questions and ordering special food. Thank you. Joan K.
