Spirit of 76th opened for business in West Allis April of 1980 in place of the old 76th gas station that occupied the site, hence the origin of our name. The original staff was one kennel assistant, one receptionist, one technician and the owner, Dr. Stan Thieman. Over the years, thanks to our loyal clients and support from our community, Spirit has grown to be one of the top veterinary practices in southeastern Wisconsin. Both the staff and the building has grown to accommodate the needs and wants of our clients. In 1999, a small addition was added to the west side of the building. In 2003 Dr. Thieman decided it was time to retire which allowed Dr. Troy Semandel, a doctor working under him, to buy Spirit of 76th Veterinary Clinic. Dr. Troy Semandel is still the owner of the clinic to this current day. Shortly after buying Spirit, in 2007, a major addition was to the building and since then the clinic has grown to be a five doctor practice. We provide care in all aspects of your pet’s wellbeing to include wellness care, vaccinations, surgery, ultrasound, radiographs (xray), laser therapy, dermatology and emergency medicine. We are also here to provide support, education and counselling for our clients. Spirit of 76th Veterinary Clinic will continue to grow and provide our community with the best, most up to date care for your pets.
