Who is WVRC

History

The origins of WVRC (Wisconsin Veterinary Referral Center) started with the establishment of the Emergency Veterinary Service in 1981 by a core of area veterinary hospitals. Over the years, other specialty practices joined the Emergency Veterinary Service and formed the WVRC in Spring 2000.  Today, WVRC is recognized as one of the largest, most diverse private veterinary emergency/referral hospitals in the state of Wisconsin.  In February 2008, WVRC expanded it's highly acclaimed Emergency and Specialty Services to a second location in Grafton, WI. In February 2013, WVRC purchased Animal ER of SouthEast Wisconsin in Racine and is in the process of expanding the services offered at that location.

At WVRC, we work together with you and your veterinarian to provide the best care available. We act as an extension of your primary veterinarian when specialized diagnostics, treatments or procedures are required. The members of WVRC share a vision and a common set of core values to provide you and your pet the highest quality veterinary care in southeastern Wisconsin.
