Dr. Joseph Koch has been a part of the practice since 1989.
Lincoln Land Animal Clinic had been a strictly large animal practice. Dr. Joe expanded the practice to include small animal medicine and surgery. Since then the small animal side has grown exponentially, as has Dr, Joe's reputation for his kind and gentle demeanor.
Dr. Colleen Koch joined the Lincoln Land Animal Clinic team in 2001. Dr. Colleen enjoyed the medical challenges of small animal medicine as well as the days outside on farm calls. Her strong interest in positive pet training, treating animals with behavior problems and preventing behavior problems led her to complete a residency through the American College of Veterinary Behaviorists with Dr. Valarie Tynes as her mentor. Dr. Colleen is now board certified in veterinary behavior- one of 85 in North America. She sees behavior patients at our clinic and for the University of Missouri College of Veterinary Medicine at their satellite clinic~ Mizzou Animal Cancer Care in Wentzville, MO.
