Now open for business, the clinic offers a full range of medical services to area pet owners.

The veterinary clinic is owned by John Prellwitz, DVM, who has sixteen years of veterinary experience. For the past thirteen years, he served as companion animal veterinarian and partner at St. Anna Veterinary Clinic S.C. in St. Anna. Prior to his tenure at St. Anna, he served as associate dairy veterinarian at Burr Oak Veterinary Clinic in Fremont. Prellwitz is also a military veteran, having served as an Army Ranger.

“Compassionate Care Animal Clinic is committed to excellence in veterinary health care,” stated Prellwitz. The relationship of each client and their pet(s) will always be our first concern. We are committed to enriching and prolonging that relationship through excellence in our practice craft, client education, community involvement and continual improvement.” Prellwitz noted that the community has been very welcoming to the new local business.

The village of Elkhart Lake provided a tax incremental financing (TIF) incentive to assist the infrastructure development for the project, which included the development of a new road, Victory Lane. As a result, other buildable sites are now available for commercial development. Village President Alan Rudnick was on hand for the opening. Prellwitz acknowledged the support of the community as well as the efforts of the Sheboygan County Economic Development Corporation (SCEDC). “SCEDC assisted me at every step along the way keeping the project progressing from dream to this day of our business’s opening. I literally would not be here enjoying my dream without the assistance of the SECDC” Prellwitz noted.

Senior lending for the acquisition was provided by Hiawatha National Bank of Sheboygan County. The building design was provided by Kegler Architectural of Elkhart Lake. Construction services were provided by Quasius Construction. Flooring was provided by Dulmes Décor. Business plan development was facilitated through the Small Business Development Center (SBDC) at UW Green Bay and SCEDC.
