About us

Compassionate, Caring North Prairie Veterinary Clinic


We pledge to carry out our mission of providing the most compassionate and comprehensive veterinary care in a friendly and caring manner, while stressing exemplary client service.

Prairie Animal Hospital S.C. was founded in 1988 with the vision of providing a new level of customer service and pet care. Sharing the desire to provide the most compassionate and comprehensive veterinary care available, Dr. Steve Raabe and Dr. Gretchen Jaeger combined business philosophies and veterinary styles to make Prairie Animal Hospital the Waukesha veterinary clinic of choice. Today, after Dr. Jaeger's retirement, Prairie Animal Hospital continues to set the bar for client service, taking Waukesha pet care to a new level. Prairie Animal Hospital will make you and your pet feel comfortable and well cared for.
