Maria Stein Animal Clinic is a long established 8 doctor mixed practice with offices in Maria Stein, Versailles, and Wapakoneta, Ohio. We have a strong support staff for animal care and diagnostic results. Mentoring is a significant focus for new graduates and for introducing experienced doctors to client expectations. After training, a reduced work schedule is followed to help doctors balance work with life. We are a large enough to shuffle schedules to get doctors and staff to family events and needs. Our pet practice has shown tremendous growth in recent years so continuing education, equipment purchases, and staff hires have focused on enhancing that aspect of the practice. Cattle practice, especially dairy, is a mainstay of the practice and is nationally known for management consulting, facility design, milk quality evaluations and milk culture labs. Of course, reproduction and sick cow work fills the majority of work days. Ultrasound has been used tor 20 years and vaccination programs are dynamic. Our area is many beautiful small towns filled with locally owned businesses and manufacturing and schools that foster State winning athletics and academics. There are three recreational lakes in the practice and cities of Dayton, Fort Wayne, and Lima are an hour away.
