Professional, knowledgeable and compassionate

We pride ourselves on our extremely capable and knowledgable staff.  We are always learning and strongly emphasize continuing education in all aspects of medical care as well as nutrition and behavior.

To paraphrase a quote by Roger Caras: Animals are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole.  Our lives are happily centered around living and working with animals.  This includes not only our four-legged family members, but also our rescue and foster efforts.



Our Doctors and Hospital Administrator

Dr. Richard Kohlmann: 


Dr. Kohlmann's past work experience includes serving as a dairy veterinarian in Pennsylvania, teaching physiology at Purdue University and training dogs for obedience classes.  He started Westfield Veterinary Care as a house-call practice.  What has always drawn him to this field is the opportunity to help people care for their pets.  By providing the community with a veterinary care facility that can provide personable, quality care that is reasonably priced, we bridge the gap between low-cost clinics and the expense of twenty-four hour hospital care.  He enjoys projects, bicycling, gardening, fishing and aquariums.

Dr. Alicia Bundy:


A native of Arcadia, Indiana and a graduate of Purdue University, she has always enjoyed having animals in her life, from dressing the pet cat in doll clothes to caring for orphaned animals when younger. Dr Bundy has special interests in feline medicine, dermatology, behavior and dentistry.  She strives to provide excellent care, and to help educate pet owners about how to best care for their animal companions. She has also been actively involved with Indy Feral/FACE trap/neuter release program.  She enjoys drawing, painting, walking dogs, running and working out in her spare time.

Dr. Sarah Kronland:


Growing up in southern Indiana and wanting nothing more than to be a veterinarian, Purdue University was a clear choice for her. Once she graduated she moved to downtown Chicago where she completed a year in general practice followed by five years in emergency medicine. After the birth of her children, she and her family made the move back to the Hoosier state where she has been doing relief work for the past eight years. While she loves all aspects of veterinary medicine, she especially enjoys maintaining long term relationships with clients and their pets, and as such is excited to finally settle down at WVC. She is also actively involved with Anchor of Hope, an Indianapolis based charity that helps women and orphans in Zambia, Africa. When she's not working she's either spending time with her family, exercising, reading, or gardening.

Virginia Davis, Hospital Administrator:

    
Hospital administrator Virginia Davis first met Dr. Kohlmann as a housecall client. Upon learning he was building a clinic she asked, “How will you staff it?” The rest is history! Virginia studied in England with Jan Fennell, “The Dog Listener.”  She is a member of the Newfoundland Club of America as well as two regional Newfoundland clubs.  She actively shows their Newfoundlands in conformation throughout the US.  She co-chairs South Central Newfoundland Rescue (SCNR), a tri-state 501(c)3 rescue organization, and chairs the annual Christmas Tree Pull at Dull’s Tree Farm in Mechanicsburg, IN that benefits SCNR.  Please join us!

Mary, Lead Assistant:


I joined the practice in 2002.  With my formal training mostly focused on equine, it seemed like a natural transition to focus on companion and small animals.  I have a Bachelor of Science in Equestrian Studies from the University of Findlay and since joining WVC have attended many continuing education courses, seminars and conferences over the years.  In addition to the day to day appointments, I find surgical nursing to be rewarding.  Behavioral counseling is another challenge I enjoy. When I am not at work, I train, ride and show Hunter Jumper's.  My other hobbies include running and yoga when I am not chauffeuring my teenage daughter.

Tamara, Assistant:


I joined the practice in 2008.  It was my love of animals and wanting to pursue a career in veterinary medicine that drew me here.  In addition to my degree from IUPUI, I've attended a veterinary technician program and many continuing education classes.  I particularly enjoy working with some of the more reluctant patients, behavioral issues and seeing our sick patients walk out healthy.  I have fostered and rescued many dogs and cats.  I also work with autistic and special needs adults.

Sharon, Receptionist:


I joined the practice in 2009.  In my prior life, I was a hair stylist for over 13 years.  It was my deep love and interest in dogs and cats that guided me towards a new career at a veterinary specialty center.  After working there for several years, I was drawn to the idea of general practice which offers the opportunity for building long term relationships with clients and their pets. I found that in WVC!  I am especially interested in animal dermatology, which includes food and seasonal allergies. I also enjoy working at the front desk as a receptionist. When I'm not at work, you may find me on a golf course, watching my son pursue his passion for golf or "exercising" my extreme couponing skills in and around the Carmel /Westfield area.

 

Aria, Donna's most friendly hedge hog

Donna, Receptionist:


I joined the practice in 2010.  The practice I previously worked with closed and I'm happy to have found another clinic where people care about pets and their owners.  With over thirty years experience working at vet clinics as a receptionist, I continue to enjoy helping our wonderful clients.  Over the years I have had the opportunity to further my knowledge by attending many continuing education classes and state meetings.  When I am not working, my own menagerie beckons and calls. It includes multiple cats plus unusual pets like mice, sugar gliders, hedge hogs, a chameleon and a bearded dragon!

Suzy's long haired beautiful black cat named Clayton

Suzy, Assistant:


I first met the incredible staff at WVC in December 2010 as a client.  My many pets needed a new veterinary clinic and I immediately felt at home here.  In March 2012, I joined the WVC family as a veterinary assistant.  Since then, I have enjoyed building relationships with all of our clients and caring for their incredible animal companions.  I am particularly interested in cat behavior. At home, I find it very interesting the way that they interact with one another, our dogs and my family.  When I'm not working, my family and I spending a lot of time gardening or enjoying nature.  Our favorite family activity is camping!

This is Kahlua, the most spoiled chihuahua ever.

Daniella, Assistant:

I joined WVC in May 2015. I feel so lucky they decided to "take me in," as i had no formal training in veterinary medicine but I have always had an interest in medicine. I was actually pre-med in college, but changed my mind...4 times! I finally decided that if I couldn't graduate with a degree in everything, I would pick the best of everything and make my own degree, which I did. I graduated from DePauw University in 2013 with a degree in Industrial Design. How is that connected to veterinary medicine? It's not. But my thirst for knowledge is often quenched with the work I do here. I'm constantly learning new things, meeting new clients, and interacting with wonderful animals. When I'm not painting or remodeling my house I enjoy re-purposing/DIY crafts, spending time with my family, and most of all traveling and taking in as much as of the world as I can see. 

Heather profile

Heather, Assistant:

I am a recent graduate of the International Business College with a vet tech degree and am thrilled to have found a home at Westfield Veterinary Care. I have been drawn to working with animals since I was young and never gave up on my dream. Animal behavior has always been an interest because no animal is the same. It is difficult to know what they are thinking -- we must learn how to read them. In addition, I have found that while school taught me so much, it does not compare to the reality of working in a practice. In my spare time I am usually doing something with my two dogs, walking, training, or simply relaxing at home.

Melissa Profile

Marissa, Assistant:

I first became a part of Westfield Veterinary Care this past February. Since I was young I have always had a great interest in animals, and finally decided to dedicate my professional life to that passion. I previously worked at Riverview Health Hospital. I hope to apply my medical experience at WVC, but I also wish to further my knowledge and involvement with animals. In addition, I have been involved with the Our Lil' Bit of Heaven Animal Rescue for nearly a decade. When I am not fostering a dog from the OLBH rescue, you can find me coaching Westfield's freshman and sophomore girls' travel basketball team.
