  • RUTH CLARK, DVM
    Associate Veterinarian

    “I love meeting clients and learning about their pets and their lifestyles.  Each relationship built is so unique and really brightens my day!”  Dr. Ruth Clark grew up in the country just outside of Fort Atkinson.  These days she lives just outside Waterloo on a farmette with her family, her 2 farm dogs, 2 farm cats, the farm goat (who was found a stray in a big city) and a flock of egg laying chickens.  Dr. Clark graduated in the same veterinary school class as Dr. Orchard in 2004.  She spent her first decade of practice in emergency medicine but is happy to be back splitting time between emergency practice and the family-oriented atmosphere of general practice.
