Dr. Ken Lambrecht

Dr. Ken Lambrecht

Founding Owner/Medical Director

Dr. Ken Lambrecht is the founding owner and Medical Director of West Towne Veterinary Center. Dr. Ken graduated from the University of Missouri in 1981 and has been in clinical practice for 32 years. Dr. Ken’s practice interests are feline preventive medicine, preventive and therapeutic nutrition, and supplements and advanced dental procedures (periodontitis and oral surgery). He has learned much over the years from his personal pets including Travis a yellow lab who was his #1 buddy from 1981 to 1995 and Buck an orange tabby who lived for 22 years!  Dr. Ken is an avid cross-country skier, bicyclist and water sports lover. When he isn’t seeing clients or at a veterinary conference he is probably racing stand up paddle boards, or traveling, often camping on the great lakes. His four cats (Lance, Bug, Annie & Georgie)  share his cabin on Lake Mendota.  Bug, the clinic’s namesake (bug ventures) often comes to the clinic with Dr. Ken and even has her own Facebook page.

Office Manager
Cheyene

Cheyene

Office Manager

Cheyene joined the WTVC team in late October 2019, but she has worked in the pet industry all her life. It all started with her Grandmother’s pet store. Cheyene started working weekends and after school until she graduated to managing the store’s daily operations. From that she realized how valuable understanding your pet’s nutritional needs could be in providing answers to everyday challenges they may encounter. She utilized this knowledge as well as the positive impact of using pheromones, like Feliway, when fostering “special needs” cats for Columbia County Humane Society. It only made sense that when she decided to move to Madison and met Dr. Ken that the “stars aligned” and she joined the team!

In her own words “I have worked at many vet clinics over the last 30 years, including for Dr. Lambrecht from 1999-2001.  My family has returned to the Madison area in the previous year and a half, and I am ready to work again and was delighted to be able to find a position open at West Towne Veterinary Center.

I am looking forward to greeting both clients that I have known from the past and new ones that I have yet to meet!”
