  • Dr.
    Emily Whitehouse

    Dr. Emily has wanted to be a veterinarian since the 3rd grade, after her dad mentioned that she was pretty good with the family pets.  She worked at veterinary clinics throughout her high school weekends in Ohio, before attending The Ohio State University for her undergraduate and veterinary school degrees.  She moved to Southwestern Iowa in 2008 with her now-husband to practice mixed animal medicine.  After 4 years, she headed into town to a predominately small animal clinic.  She's decided to start her own practice in Omaha after seven years, and she is SO excited to care for you and your pets!  Dr. Emily and her husband have 2 dogs, 3 indoor cats, a bunch of barn cats (more show up every day, right?), and some chickens on their acreage.  In her free time (ha!), she loves to garden/landscape (native plants only, please), read voraciously, prep for the apocalypse, and build furniture as a novice.

  • Abby Potter

    Abby has always wanted to work with animals as a career. She grew up in rural Delaware in an area that was a popular pet dumping spot. She took it upon herself to care for these animals and gain their trust so she could bring them to the local SPCA (and even keep a few). She also cared for any injured wildlife that would stumble into her yard. Abby also volunteered at the SPCA on the weekends. She lived in Delaware for 18 years before moving to Myrtle Beach, SC where she started a job working for a dog daycare and boarding facility. She learned a lot about animal behavior and what goes into caring for multiple animals, even ones with special needs.
