Dr. Honken and Terri are very grateful Dr. Mike and Dr. Sioux chose them to take over their practice of over 30 years. They are excited to have the opportunity to continue providing exceptional care and look forward to meeting all of you and your animals.
Doug Honken, DVM- Veterinarian
Dr. Honken spent most of his life in Laramie, Wyoming. From a young age he knew he wanted to be a veterinarian and attended the University of Wyoming, earning a degree in microbiology before moving to Colorado State University for his degree in veterinary medicine.
Veterinary medicine became a family affair as Dr. Honken was often seen working along side his wife and their two children in their successful mixed animal practice in Laramie. It was there that he was honored with the 2007 Better Business award and deemed the ‘Angel Vet’ by the Springer Spaniel Rescue. In his years of practicing, he has gained a strong interest in soft tissue and extensive experience in orthopedic surgery.
Today you will see Dr. Honken working alongside with his wife, Terri, and trusty sidekick Riley, his beloved golden retriever. Together they share passion in providing compassionate and quality care to your animals.
Terri is a Wyoming native, growing up in Casper. She attended Casper Community College, the University of Wyoming and the University of Northern Colorado, earning her degree in therapeutic recreation.
Terri has spent the better part of her adult life working along side Doug in running the family owned practice. She has a deep love for animals and strives everyday to assist in providing the best care to your beloved pets.
