Clinic History

ia vet clinicThe Monticello Veterinary Clinic began in 1968 when Dr. John Chittick purchased an existing practice from Dr. Ted Beck. Soon after, Dr. Gilchrist joined the clinic and the two became well-known throughout the Monticello community, with the clinic’s primary focus being production animal medicine.

The two owners constructed the building that currently houses the Monticello Veterinary Clinic in 1972, and Drs. Phil Hanna and Tom Lee joined the staff in 1974 and 1981 respectively.

With advancements in medical research and technology, the clinic has continually improved its equipment and treatments to best serve area farmers. In addition, as the Monticello area has grown, the clinic has expanded to offer medical services for household pets in addition to production animals.

When Drs. Chittick and Gilchrist retired in the area, the clinic made several new additions to the veterinary staff. In 2013, Dr. Cole Burrack joined the Monticello Vet Clinic, followed by Dr. Jayme Freye and Julie Jones, RVT in 2014.  2016 saw the addition of Aubry Raymond-Schmitt, RVT followed by Dr. Mark Duffy in 2017.

Over the years, the clinic has enjoyed providing medical services to area farmers and pet owners, as well as being actively involved in the Monticello community. As always, the clinic encourages continued education and learning in all its veterinarians in order to provide you with the best possible care for your animals.
