Originally founded almost 100 years ago, Elkhorn Veterinary Clinic was later purchased by Drs. Bob Entwistle, Jeff Korosec, and Phil Burns.

Shortly after graduating from the University of Illinois in 1981, Dr. Bob Entwistle began practicing at Elkhorn Veterinary Clinic. He grew up on a livestock farm in central Illinois, and his experience in livestock management led to his career in veterinary medicine.

A graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Dr. Jeff Korosec joined the Elkhorn Veterinary Clinic team in 1992. Outside of the practice, Dr. Korosec volunteers at Lakeland Animal Shelter and serves on the advisory board for Gateway Technical College Veterinary Sciences Program.

Dr. Phil Burns graduated from Colorado State University in 1986, and started practicing at Elkhorn Veterinary Clinic a year later. Dr. Burns’ special interests include equine reproduction, lameness, and dentistry, which he also practices abroad seasonally at an equine specialty practice in New Zealand.

They are joined by Drs. Nicole Preston, Liana Wiegal, Megan Slamka, Tracy Heshelman, Ashley Slater, Colleen Stewart, and Ellen Waller.

The doctors are supported by their small animal manager, Sara Dingman, large animal manager, Margaret Black, hospital manager, Donna Herman, and a group of hardworking veterinary technicians, veterinary assistants, receptionists, and groomers.

Originally founded over 45 years ago, Tech Ridge Pet Hospital was purchased by Dr. Bill Watson in the 1980s before moving to its current location in 2007. This full-service animal hospital provides high quality care to cats and dogs in the bustling city of Austin.

A 1971 graduate of Texas A&M University, Dr. Watson moved to Austin in 1983 and has been there ever since. He works alongside Drs. Kimberly Thornton and Dee Ann Mouser. Like Dr. Watson, Drs. Thornton and Mouser are graduates of Texas A&M. Dr. Thornton has been with Tech Ridge for 17 years and has a special interest in holistic medicine. Dr. Mouser’s interests include feline medicine, dermatology, and geriatric medicine.

The doctors are supported by their hospital manager of 12 years, Elizabeth Toglia, and an enthusiastic team of veterinary technicians, veterinary assistants, and receptionists.

We are thrilled to partner with two practices that strive to provide outstanding veterinary care to their patients, all while treating them as if they were their own. It is our pleasure to welcome Elkhorn Veterinary Clinic and Tech Ridge Pet Hospital to the VetCor family!
