Dr. Brad Spain
Veterinarian

Brad Spain

Dr. Spain grew up in Kincaid, KS and is a proud 2008 graduate of Kansas State University College of Veterinary Medicine. Passionate about providing the best quality care for your pet, Dr. Spain brings us ten years of experience in practice and his professional interests include small animal internal medicine, dermatology, and orthopedic surgery. When Dr. Spain is not at the clinic, he enjoys spending time with his family and friends, traveling, and storm chasing! During storm season, it’s not uncommon for Dr. Spain to be out in search of tornadoes; storm chasing is his favorite (and riskiest!) hobby. The scariest moment in his storm chasing career was when he narrowly missed being crushed by a one ton hay bale during a severe storm in south east Kansas. Dr. Spain looks forward to getting to know you and your pets!

Dr. Ruth Rogers
Veterinarian

Ruth Rogers

Dr. Ruth Rogers grew up on a farm in Stilwell, Kansas which gave her the opportunity to spend her childhood surrounded by horses, barn cats, and family dogs as well as the occasional cow, sheep, or pig. She graduated from Kansas State College of Veterinary Medicine in 2014. Since graduating, she has had the opportunity to work locally in the Kansas City area as well as in Raleigh, NC. Her professional interests include preventive care, dermatology, surgery, and internal medicine. Her passion for animal care goes beyond science and medicine because she is most passionate about helping clients understand their pets and she embraces the importance of working with pet owners to discover how each pet can live its best life. Education and communication are the cornerstones of her daily practice.

Outside of work, Dr. Rogers can often be found playing disc golf with her husband, walking with their two dogs Kiba and Natty, or enjoying nature and playgrounds with her daughter.
