We are excited to announce that Dr. Willow Hipwood has moved to our bustling Beloit clinic. Dr. Hipwood has been part of the Badger Veterinary Hospital team since 2005, working with us as a technician assistant and certified veterinary technician before earning her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from UW-Madison in 2014. She has since served as the primary veterinarian at our Cambridge clinic.

“I have truly enjoyed the last 2 years at our Cambridge clinic,” shares Dr. Hipwood. “I cherish the relationships I have formed and the stories, laughs, and cries I have shared with clients and their pets. To all those I have had the pleasure working with, I sincerely thank you for entrusting me with your pets’ care. I will miss you all.

“With that, I am thrilled for the opportunity to practice at the Beloit clinic. I look forward to getting to know current clients and new, providing the best medicine I can to their furry family members, and working with the wonderful Badger Vet-Beloit staff. I believe the best care happens when veterinarians and pet owners work together, and I am excited to do this with the Beloit community!”

Dr. Hipwood started in Beloit this week. She returns to practice after she and her husband, Greg, welcomed their beautiful daughter, Adaline, to the family. She will be working part-time through March before transitioning to full-time practice.

In addition to Dr. Hipwood, you’ll see some new faces greeting you at the front desk of our Beloit clinic. Alexis Topel comes to Beloit from our Janesville clinic and Badger Equine Veterinary Services team, and Nicole Riddle joined the Badger Veterinary Hospital staff in January.

We are thrilled to have Dr. Kellie Kuzdas join the Badger Veterinary Hospital team and serve as the primary small animal veterinarian at our Cambridge clinic. Dr. Kuzdas has practiced both large and small animal medicine and surgery. Her primary fields of interest include dermatology and internal and geriatric medicine.

“I am so excited to begin a new chapter in my veterinary career with Badger Veterinary Hospital,” says Dr. Kuzdas. “I will be bringing 30 years of experience to the Cambridge office and look forward to meeting new people and their beloved family pets.”

Dr. Kuzdas starts March 20. She joins Dr. Toria Waldron, Dr. Cynthia Sweet, and our veterinary technicians in providing care to your pets in Cambridge.

Another new person you may or may not have met is Kellie Grob at the front desk. Kellie joined the Badger Veterinary Hospital staff last November. Her background includes working in the office of a busy large animal hospital. In addition to managing the office operations of our Cambridge clinic, she provides administrative assistance to the Badger Equine team.
