About Us

Welcome to Veterinary Center of Somerset!

Because of OUR commitment to the highest quality pet care, pet owners have come to rely on Dr. Tim VanDerPloeg as a compassionate, skilled and cost-conscious partner in the care of their beloved companions. When a pet receives proper veterinary attention, along with a loving home, they have the best chance of living a long and happy life.

In order to provide a superior level of veterinary medicine, we place great importance on hiring only the most highly trained and compassionate veterinarians and veterinary technicians. Each member of our medical team is well-versed in the advanced techniques of dentistry, anesthesia, and veterinary technology. We all undergo continuing education and provide structured training programs for new employees.

Veterinary Center of Somerset will reflect the best that veterinary medicine has to offer. Our new facility will incorporate modern, state-of-the-art equipment, exam rooms, diagnostics, laboratory, radiology, and other medical assets into our facility that promotes a calm, fear free at home-like atmosphere for our clients and their pets. Our surgical suite will be equipped with the most up-to-date surgical technology available today.

Our modern large animal facility and mobile unit will give us the flexibility to perform a range of services in our haul-in facility or on the farm throughout Pulaski and surrounding counties.  This flexibility is especially important and valuable to the majority of our large animal clients, who tend to have a range of animals, breeds and number of livestock. In some instances, such as for vaccinations, examinations or when an animal is too ill or injured, it is simply impractical to bring an individual animal or the entire herd to the clinic. In cases where an animal requires surgery, treatment for some diseases, or for services such as breeding soundness exam for bulls, we feel the interests of our client and their animals are best served by bringing them to our haul-in facility.

We are committed to providing quality care and are diligent about promoting education and responsible pet ownership. We work closely with you to understand your pet’s unique health needs and to develop a preventive plan that best meets those needs. Despite the most advanced care and nurturing, however, a beloved pet may still develop an illness or be injured. Our internal medicine and surgical expertise, as well as our advanced diagnostics and veterinary laboratory, ensures your pet receives a quick and accurate diagnosis followed by the proper treatment.

We recognize that providing the highest quality veterinary care includes keeping you, our clients, at the center of all we do. After all, we are pet owners ourselves and understand how important it is to be received and treated by a staff that is knowledgeable, welcoming, and courteous. It is our goal not just to ensure the health and wellbeing of your pet, but to be your partner in strengthening the bond you share with your companion. We thoroughly discuss any diagnosis, as well as the various options of treatment, with you before we continue with our healthcare plan.
