The Sun Prairie Pet Clinic, Inc. was founded on the belief that our pets occupy a very special place in our lives. We recognize and celebrate the unique gifts that our canine and feline family members give to us unconditionally. Our goal is to keep our pets healthy and strong through all stages of life. We strive for this goal by advocating wellness care for the healthy pet, as well as timely and appropriate diagnostic and therapeutic interventions for the sick pet. We know that each pet and each family are unique; therefore, we tailor medical care for each pet and family individually based on individual needs.


VETERINARIANS

Dr. Vitale

Dr. Vitale graduated from the University of Illinois, College of Veterinary Medicine in 1995. Immediately out from school he took a position at a large, 24-hour veterinary hospital as an emergency veterinarian.  This experience was tremendously rewarding for the diversity and complexity of cases he was exposed to.  He become comfortable with a broad range of medical and surgical cases, as well as dental care.  He was looking for a more prolonged relationship with the patients and clients, which is something the emergency room did not provide. After 9 years in emergency medicine he changed to become a daytime general practitioner. Since that time he has been able to focus on the lifelong relationships with patients and clients that he finds most rewarding.

He continues to have an interest in emergency medicine, though this is augmented by an interest in preventative medicine and wellness care.  He appreciates the opportunity to get to know the clients and their pets well enough to develop a personalized plan for health care for each patient.

In the spring of 2008, he fulfilled a dream of practice ownership by opening the Sun Prairie Pet Clinic, Inc.  He hopes to establish a lifelong relationship with my clients, my neighbors, and my new hometown.

We were recognized as the Best of Sun Prairie 5 times over the past 8 years.  He recognizes that this is a team effort in every way, and he is grateful to the staff for their dedicated efforts and to all of the clients that voted for us to receive this award.  As always, we will look to exceed your expectations in the future.

He is a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association, the Wisconsin State Veterinary Medical Association, and the American Animal Hospital Association.  He is certified to perform PennHIP evaluations for canine hip dysplasia.
