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.

Lexi

Lexi

Veterinary Technician

Lexi grew up on a farm in Iowa for most of her life and is currently studying for her CVT. She’s always had a passion for animals. When she was a child, you could not keep her away from the sheep and cow pins. While she was living in Colorado for a few years, Lexi dipped her toes into doggie daycare and boarding, grooming, some dog training, and then started some assistant work on the medical side of things, which was when she knew she wanted to have a career on the medical side of animal care. Lexi has a lot of experience with animal behavior and clinical experience. She is Fear Free certified and looking to advance her certification to an Elite Fear Free Professional. She loves improving an animal’s wellbeing to give them the healthiest and longest life with their owner. It’s a bond like no other.
Office Manager/Accounting
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!
