    Animal Tracks Veterinary Service LLC
   was established in 2006 when Dr. Lenay Kumlin and Dr. Erica Bass
  
joined forces with the intent of providing Vernon County with a full service
   diagnostic and client oriented companion animal veterinary facility.


 
   
   Dr. Lenay Kumlin received her doctorate in Veterinary Medicine
   from Michigan State University in 1997 and moved to Viroqua,
   Wisconsin to start practicing veterinary medicine. She worked in
   a mixed animal practice for 9 years working with dogs, cats, horses,
   cows, sheep, goats and the occasional alpaca/llama. Although she
   enjoyed large animal medicine, her interest shifted to focus on
   companion animal medicine and surgery since she partnered
   with Dr. Erica Bass to form Animal Tracks Veterinary Service. She
   is a member of the American and Wisconsin Veterinary Medical
   Associations. She has a young family and enjoys spending time with
   them. She is active in many organizations outside of veterinary
   medicine including the Vernon Women Investors, Viroqua Partners,
   Vernon Memorial Foundation, and 4-H. Dr. Kumlin is very interested
   in dog obedience and will be very involved in programs in the
   Training Facility within the new clinic. She has several pets at home,
   including her Labrador Retriever, "Glory", Welsh Terrier, "Finn" and
   cat, "Bagheera".



  
        
   Dr. Erica Bass received her doctorate in Veterinary Medicine from
   the University of Wisconsin Madison in 2004 and moved to Viroqua,
   Wisconsin to start her career in veterinary medicine. She is interested
   in companion animal medicine and partnered with Dr. Lenay Kumlin to
   form Animal Tracks Veterinary Service in August 2006. She is a member
   of the American and Wisconsin Veterinary Medical Associations. She
   enjoys spending time with her family, camping, gardening, and working
   around the house. Dr. Bass is very active in the English Lutheran
   Church in Viroqua. She is interested in internal medicine, especially
   geriatric evaluations. In the future, she would like to incorporate
   complementary alternative medicine into her practice. She has a farm
   with sheep and beef, a puggle "Wesley" and two cats, "Gwen"
   and "Morgan".
