Diane has been working in the veterinary field for approximately 40 years. She has a Certified Veterinary Technician License. She has exam room experience, surgical and dental skills. She specializes in geriatric and feline medicine. She lives with her husband and cat, Gabby. In her spare time, she likes to read and do needlepoint.

Kristina is a proud Cyclone, graduating from Iowa State University in 2015 with her BS in Animal Science and pre-veterinary medicine. She is currently enrolled in Penn Foster's Veterinary Technician program. It’s no surprise that she ended up working with animals since she can never remember wanting to do anything else! Even her parents were surprised when as a child she consistently told people she wanted to be a veterinarian when she grew up. Since then, she has worked with animals at shelters, pet stores, and veterinarian offices. Kristina lives in Wheeling with her son, two cats (Zanna and Zookie), dog (Camille), and guinea pigs (Rufus and Simon). Kristina loves to read fantasy novels and spend time outdoors.

"If you are looking for a vet you can stop now because Dr. Dodin and her team are THE best! For example, she will tell you to email her at ANY time I emailed her on a Sunday a question about my puppy and she responded that same day!




Beautiful staff! Dr.Dodin is great! She's knowledgeable and kind. My 4yo was fascinated by her and Dr.Dodin took time showing and explaining all the tools and procedures during our pups check up.



Dr. Dodin and her team are so friendly.  She is calm and patient, and puts the pets and the owners first.  She is very caring and knowledgeable. My appointment was easy to get and the prices were very reasonable.
