What Are Our Clients Saying About Us?
Check out reviews from our current clients to learn more about why so many of Pewaukee’s pet parents bring their companions to us!
Dr. Kelly Flowers
Dr. Kelly received her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2015. Many remember Dr. Kelly long before she became a veterinarian with us since her career at Pewaukee Veterinary Service actually began in 1998. She joined our team as a veterinary technician intern when she was still in school at the Madison Area Technical College. Upon graduation, she became a Certified Veterinary Technician, and for many years, worked hand-in-hand with our doctors helping many of our clients and their pets.
Dr. Kelly loved working in the veterinary profession so much she decided to go back to school to pursue her dream of becoming a veterinarian. With the support of her husband, her children, her family—and, of course, all of us here cheering her on—she juggled both working at the practice and attending school full-time to graduate with flying colors and now we're so proud she's part of our team of veterinarians!
Enjoying all aspects of veterinary medicine, Dr. Kelly loves serving our clients and their pets, as their veterinarian. When she’s not practicing medicine, Dr. Kelly has several passions she loves to indulge in—most importantly spending time with her family. She has a small hobby farm with Nubian goats (Moose & Delilah), eight chickens (her kids know them all by name!), Emma the Mastiff mix, Charley the Great Dane, George the cat, and of course, who can forget Bacon—their Juliana pig! Her household is busy as you can imagine with four-legged family members and five children.
Summertime camping (yes, the dogs and their pig join them), road trips out west to see national parks and landmarks, and enjoying the great outdoors are on Dr. Kelly’s ‘love to do’ list. When the cold in Wisconsin comes a calling, she heads out with the family to the warmer weather—which includes sand, lots of beach time, and enjoying her family’s love of snorkeling and seeing the world with its creatures that live under the water. All share a love of the ocean and have been to Cozumel, Cancun, Puerto Morelos, and Riviera Maya and look forward to more tropical destinations to explore!
Dr. Carolynn Hamm
Dr. Carolynn received her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2015. Originally from the area, she found herself starting her career as a veterinarian at a large veterinary practice that served the Stow Kent communities in Northeast Ohio. She practiced preventative medicine, as well as emergency critical care, performing many surgical procedures from routine spays and neuters to a variety of soft tissue surgeries.
Dr. Carolynn found that even though she enjoyed Ohio, she and her husband wanted to come back to Wisconsin to be closer to their friends and family. As a classmate of Dr. Kelly Flowers at UW-Madison's School of Veterinary Medicine, it didn't take long before she found her way back home—and we love having her on our team!
Dr. Carolynn enjoys practicing a wide variety of medicine and has a keen interest in solving the many allergies and dermatological conditions affecting so many pets. When she's not working, you’ll find her with her husband and her Great Dane, Presley, tending to the rather large garden she has and tackling projects around her home. She and her husband love to explore the Lake Country area where they live, and bike on the trails and of course boat on the countless lakes they explore. You may even see her out and about since she delivers Meals on Wheels to those in need in her Oconomowoc community.
Once the weather turns brisk, you’ll find her taking in the fine arts at the Milwaukee Performing Art Center and Overture Center. She’s also an avid reader and traveler—having explored Australia, Costa Rica, and Europe already, she’s adding more to her list of must-sees!
Dr. Jeff Baker
Dr. Jeff's passion for wanting a career helping animals began at an early age. He graduated from the University of Michigan where he received a bachelor’s degree and master's degree in wildlife biology. Working with human facial orthopedics research at the university's dental and medical schools, he found he really enjoyed the surgical aspects of the field. This led Dr. Jeff to pursue his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine, graduating with honors in 1989 from Michigan State University College of Veterinary Medicine.
Upon graduation, Dr. Jeff started practicing at a very busy hospital in the Metro Detroit area, honing his skills in orthopedic surgery along with his volunteer interests of serving on the council of the SE Michigan Veterinary Medical Association. Moving to the Milwaukee area with his wife in 1999, he joined the practice of a fellow colleague from veterinary school and developed a strong interest in orthopedic surgery. Working with techniques for cranial cruciate injuries such as the Arthrex TightRope CCL and Tibial Tuberosity Advancement (TTA), Dr. Jeff also expanded his surgical expertise with laparoscopy, cystoscopy, vaginoscopy, and rhinoscopy.
Dr. Jeff joined our team at Pewaukee Veterinary Service in 2016, bringing over 27 years of medical and surgical expertise — he loves to share his knowledge and educate clients. He hopes to continue to build on his knowledge to help our clients keep their pets happy and healthy for years to come.
When not practicing medicine, Dr. Jeff enjoys a number of outdoor activities — and quite the busy outdoorsman he is! Although they rarely get the chance as of late, both he and his wife, Melody, enjoy sailing and are avid scuba divers. They enjoyed doing some diving in the Great Lakes area, particularly in Michigan and Tobermory, Ontario, Canada, but really prefer the warmer waters of the sub-tropics. Their diving adventures have taken them to Florida, California, Hawaii, the Bahamas, the Dominican Republic, Cozumel, Belize, Honduras, Bonaire, Cyprus, and Zanzibar. Next up on the bucket list is the Great Barrier Reef of Australia and Truk Lagoon in Micronesia!
Dr. Jeff also enjoys taking advantage of water sports around here, as well as throughout the US — stand-up paddleboarding, kayaking, and fly-fishing for trout and steelhead. His favorite areas to fish include the spring creeks in the Driftless Area of southwest Wisconsin, northern Wisconsin, and the rivers of western Michigan, Montana, and Colorado. His fish bucket list includes the famed steelhead rivers of the Northwest and Scotland. When the weather turns, it doesn’t deter him in the least — he goes downhill skiing.
And when he’s bitten by the travel bug, both Dr. Jeff and his wife have visited Canada, Mexico, Belize, Honduras, the Caribbean, England, France, Switzerland, Italy, Cyprus, Tanzania and Zanzibar, Myanmar, multiple trips to Thailand and Laos, and Hong Kong. Moving forward, he wants to head to Scotland to trace his wife’s Fraser Clan roots!
A lot of their travel is geared for having fun; however, some is associated with their love of working to support the mission of a nonprofit, non-government organization called Partnership for Sustainable Aid. This agency fosters partnerships with key national leaders of self-sustainable agencies and institutions that serve the needy and vulnerable in SE Asia. He serves as the agency’s Vice Chairman and is on the Board of Directors.
Enjoying his wife’s wonderful cooking and baking masterpieces, the occasional glass of a good red wine, helping with his church’s mission work, and walking his energetic Golden Retriever, Fraser, in the hills of the Kettle Moraine prove to be his ‘best medicine.'
Dr. Hillary Geipel, DVM, CCRT
Certified Canine Rehabilitation Therapist
Dr. Hillary is a Pewaukee native and the first Pewaukee High School alumna to join the PVS team as a veterinarian. She received her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from the University of Wisconsin in 2018. Throughout her education, Dr. Hillary gained additional experience while employed at UW Veterinary Care's critical care unit and also at a local emergency veterinary clinic. Dr. Hillary has many interests in veterinary medicine, including emergency and urgent care, and the challenge of problem-solving neurology issues.
Dr. Hillary currently does not own any pets, but she spends a lot of time with her "dog niece" Lola and plans on adopting a Brittany Spaniel in the near future. During her time off, Dr. Hillary can be found running around the Pewaukee area. She enjoys long-distance running and has raced in several marathons, including the Boston Marathon. Dr. Hillary is a triplet and she values spending time with her family.
Dr. Meghan Glazer
Dr. Meghan received her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from UW-Madison School of Veterinary Medicine in 2012. She then completed an emergency and critical care internship at Wisconsin Veterinary Referral Center and continued to practice emergency and critical care medicine at WVRC from 2012-2021. During this tenure, Dr. Meghan became quite familiar with a variety of emergent surgical procedures, advanced diagnostic tools, therapies for acute or traumatic conditions and management for chronic disease processes. Dr. Meghan also has management experience in the veterinary specialty field, earning the title Senior Veterinary Associate at WVRC, and placed in charge of the emergency department. She worked with a team of veterinary specialists, as well as trained 9 years of intern classes during her time at WVRC.
Dr. Meghan joined Pewaukee Veterinary Service in September 2021 and had goals to establish long term relationships with pets and their owners. Dr. Meghan thoroughly enjoys soft tissue surgical procedures, advanced diagnostics and management of endocrine conditions. She also has a unique interest in pet behavior and is Fear Free certified, using these methods for handling pets while at the veterinary hospital.
Dr. Meghan has strong roots in Wisconsin – she is from the Milwaukee area, went to Madison for undergraduate and graduate degrees, and returned to Milwaukee to be close to family after graduating veterinary school. Dr. Meghan is the proud mom of daughter, Norah and son, Jack. She also has two fur babies, a Pitbull named Bosley, and a cat named Frankie. When not practicing veterinary medicine, Dr. Meghan enjoys spending time with her plethora of nieces and nephews, taking in the great outdoors with family, watching her two little ones grow, and taking barre or yoga classes.
Dr. Randy Schuett (Retired)
Dr. Randy Schuett is the co-owner and founder of Pewaukee Veterinary Service. He received his undergraduate and DVM degree from Kansas State University and opened the hospital in 1975 with the vision to give the surrounding communities, his clients, and their pets the best veterinary health care available. A former president of the Wisconsin Veterinary Medical Association (WVMA) and member of the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), Dr. Randy has been active for many years in both associations in a variety of roles.
Dr. Randy's special interests include diagnostics, endoscopy, and laparoscopic surgery. He is a pioneer in the use of laparoscopic techniques in veterinary medicine, traveling nationwide — and even overseas — sharing his knowledge and expertise with other veterinary practitioners. His active involvement and technique refinement over the years with an ongoing research project, studying the use of laparoscopy in bear reproduction, hopefully, will allow researchers the ability to extend and enhance the breeding capabilities of bears and also of endangered species such as the giant panda.
Fishing, hunting, and enjoying the great outdoors keep Dr. Randy busy when he's not practicing as well as enjoying time with his family and seven grandchildren!
Dr. Jeff Schuett (Retired)
Dr. Jeff Schuett joined his twin brother, Dr. Randy Schuett, as co-owner of the Pewaukee Veterinary Service in 1980. He received his DVM and B.S. degree from Kansas State University and is also a Diplomate of the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners Certified in Canine and Feline Practice. The American Board of Veterinary Practitioners (ABVP) seeks to promote the highest standards in contemporary veterinary hospital practice. Open only to established practitioners, the ABVP certifies its candidates in species-specific categories. Once certified, the practitioner must periodically recertify. Dr. Jeff has been a Diplomate of the ABVP in the canine/feline specialty since 1979 and was the first veterinarian to be certified in this specialty in the state of Wisconsin.
With over 38 years of experience in general practice, his special interests in practice are internal medicine, dentistry and orthopedics—especially cruciate repair. A strong advocate for both preventive and lifetime wellness care for pets, Dr. Jeff believes in addressing each pet’s unique breed and lifestyle as part of their individual healthcare plan.
When Dr. Jeff is not actively practicing, he enjoys upland game hunting and farming. He also enjoys his passion of training and competing with his Labradors in retriever field trial competition, and spending as much time as he can with his first grandson!
Dr. Tom Hirth (Retiring July 2023)
Dr. Tom graduated from the University of Wisconsin School of Veterinary Medicine in 1994. He also holds a B.S. in Biochemistry from UW Madison and joined the Pewaukee Veterinary Service team in 1997. His professional interests include diseases of the chest, and also diseases of the skin in cats and dogs. He is actively involved in continuing education, as are all of his colleagues here, and attends frequent educational meetings and conferences in veterinary medicine.
Dr. Tom and his wife enjoy the 'silent' outdoor sports of canoeing, biking, and fishing together. When forced to remain indoors, reading is also a favorite pastime of his—especially when keeping up to speed with the latest in honeybee society, biology, and diseases that affect honeybees. He's become what he terms 'a novice beekeeper of only a few years'—bringing the fruits of his bees' hard labor to work for all to enjoy!
