Veterinarians purchase second clinic


Mon, Oct 13th, 2014
Posted in Harmony Features

The veterinarians at Harmony Veterinary Clinic have expanded their business and services with the purchase of the Cresco Veterinary Clinic in Cresco, Iowa.

Drs. Lynn Aggen, Sarah Otto, and John Rein purchased the Cresco clinic on September 16, 2014 from Dr. Dan Huiskamp upon his retirement. The doctors and staff of both clinics are excited about the acquisition and the opportunity to provide excellent animal care to the city of Cresco and surrounding area, while collaborating with the Harmony clinic and staff.

According to Emily Onsager, practice manager at Harmony Veterinary Clinic, there have been services added at the Cresco location in both small and large animal. She noted that the Cresco clinic will be offering new lab capabilities, such as digital x-ray, ultrasound (soon), and micro-chipping of family pets.

Dr. Allison Hartman, who joined the Harmony practice in June of 2014, states that “the clinic in Cresco has a fabulous large animal facility, so it is set up to truly be a mixed animal practice”.

Dr. Hartman joined the practice as a large animal practitioner and has an extensive equine and large animal background, specializing in chiropractic care and equine lameness. Dr. Hartman noted that any animal can be adjusted, from large animals, such as horses and cows, to smaller animals, such as dogs. Many clients of the Harmony clinic have learned about the many chiropractic services offered and Dr. Hartman hopes to expand those services in Cresco as well.

Dr. Mackenzie Westby joined the Harmony practice in September of 2012. Since that time she has worked with the small animal practice side, as well as the large animal. She is looking forward to continuing the same great service offered in Harmony at the Cresco location too. Westby emphasizes, “We have great clientele which came with the new practice, and we are excited to expand our services to Cresco and will be offering more small animal services in the future.”

Onsager states the practice will add an additional veterinarian in the Cresco practice that will work solely with small animals and Dr. Hartman adds that, “it has been great to join the two practices, because it has really diversified our small animal clientele and the services we are able to offer”.

Partner veterinarian, Dr. Sarah Otto, who has been at the clinic since 2003, will be working with Dr. Westby in the Cresco cli .....
