Veterinary clinic expands to Seneca
Currently, the Bern-Sabetha Veterinary Clinic is in the process of expanding its business to offer services in Seneca.
This new veterinary building will be called the Nemaha Central Veterinary Clinic (NCVC) and will be located at 1205 Branch Street, between the Casey’s and Sonic in Seneca. Stateline Construction is the general contractor of this project.
Owners Jeff DeMint, DVM, and Kurt Detweiler, DVM, have been wanting to expand their business to Seneca for a few years before starting the project over a year ago. According the DeMint and Detweiler, their new location will greatly benefit their Seneca clients.
“We have talked about expanding our business to Seneca for a few years now, and then we really started getting serious about it around a year and a half ago,” Detweiler said. “We had an amazing response to our expansion and new building in Sabetha, so we feel like we provide a service that the community needs and appreciates. We have several clients that drive from the Seneca area, so we felt that this was a good opportunity to expand and provide the same great services in Seneca that we do in Sabetha.”
According to Detweiler, the new clinic will be the same size as the one in Sabetha – approximately 5,000 square feet – and will provide the same services as well.
“We will provide the same services in Seneca that we currently do in our Sabetha location, which includes small animal medicine and surgery, large animal medicine and surgery, boarding, and grooming,” Detweiler said. “Services will include wellness exams, vaccinations, dentistry, general and orthopedic surgery, herd health management, large animal obstetric care, and after hours services.”
Detweiler and DeMint hope to open the new establishment around the first of October. They will be open during the same hours as the clinic in Sabetha – 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 8 a.m. to noon on Saturdays.
Full-time and part-time positions are already planned out and will be hired once construction is complete.
“We will be hiring an additional veterinarian, Dr. Jessica Stallbaumer, of Bern that will be working full-time out of the NCVC office, in addition to three full-time staff members and some high school students to help with kennel and weekend duties,” Detweiler said.
Detweiler is excited to open NCVC and begin offering his and DeMint’s services in Seneca.
“I know our clients that drive from that community are excited for the new clinic to open, as we are stoked to get moved in and get to work!” Detweiler said.
