Council Approves Plans For Vet Clinic

A new veterinary clinic will be built on vacant land next to Chase Bank on Howell Avenue.

Plans for a veterinary clinic to be built at 8020 S. Howell Ave. have been given final city approval.

The as-yet-unnamed business will be a one-story building between 6,500 and 8,000 square feet on vacant land next to Chase Bank. About 15 employees will work there.

According to a report to Oak Creek Common Council members, the clinic will not have any outdoor kennels or cages and there will be no boarding of animals.

The council unanimously approved the plans Tuesday; no one spoke at a public hearing.

Flip side would be denying someone the right to start a business and dictating what people can do on their property, though.

I think I heard it's going to be mostly cats and dogs and the like. But when there's more info on the business (name, construction date, etc) I will pass that along.

As long as they have emergency vet care, who cares the whole community would benefit. that was the original proposal at least...who knows.

A 24/7 Emergency Vet Clinic is open now next door to the Pick n Save near 27th & Ryan Rd.

Come on Mark S. You attend the planning and council meetings. City staff dictates what people can do on their property all the time. We have enough expensive vets already. They won't be able to have outdoor kennels, or board because of zoning. I go out of town for vet services. Fifty dollars to spay or neuter my dog is affordable. (Milwaukee Domestic Animal Control Price) Heart worm test and six month supply of tablets for under a hundred bucks for a large dog is affordable. (Countryside Humane Society) Had the council approved a low cost vet clinic is one thing. They didn't. All another vet clinic is going to do is dip into existing vet clinic practices. Another expensive high end price clinic isn't a need or a service we don't already have plenty of.
