Our History

Dr. Christina Venner opened the doors of North Central Missouri Veterinary Services in May of 2010. She brought her love of our community and your family members and hired a capable staff willing to go the extra mile for your pets. When Dr. Venner and her husband decided to move to the Kansas City area, Dr. Link was happy to continue offering that level of care you are accustomed to for your companion animals. Dr. Link purchased the clinic in April of 2018. Inside our home at the corner of 3rd and Cherry Streets, you will find a caring staff and a comforting atmosphere in the unique converted Craftsman Bungalow. Since the ownership change, Dr. Link has also added farm visits for the care of food animals to the clinic’s services and spends many hours a week working with cattle and their owners, from St. Joseph to Milan and all points in between.

With caring clients like you, the future of our little clinic is bright! We have added more staff members to accommodate the added hours and services. Our clinic is looking forward to Dr. Jill Abel, bringing her experience to us full-time in the summer of 2020. Learn more about our staff on Our Team page.
