Your Barnyard Veterinary Service and Supply Care Team
Dr. Sandra Wahlert, DVM, CVA, VSMT
Dr. Wahlert grew up in Colorado and has been infatuated with animals since she was a little girl. A graduate of Colorado State University in 2002, she established Barnyard Veterinary Service and Supply in 2003. In 2012 Dr. Wahlert completed her certification for large and small animal acupuncture and in 2013 she became certified in animal chiropractic manipulation.
Before she went to school to become a veterinarian, Dr. Wahlert worked on various horse and cattle ranches in Colorado, Nevada and Montana. She also worked as a veterinary assistant in Colorado and Montana where she developed her love of medicine. She has raised cattle, horses, sheep, goats, dogs, cats, rodents and a variety of birds.
Dr. Wahlert enjoys spending time wither family, horseback riding, driving her team of Percherons, gardening and crafting when she is not at work.
While new to the Black Hills, David is no stranger to veterinary medicine.
PT Veterinary Technician/PT Receptionist
Katie is a native of Hot Springs, and after several years of working as a CNA and Med Aide she was ready for a change of pace.
With her love of animals combined with the compassion and caring from her medical background, joining the team at Barnyard Vet was the next step for her.
She is grateful to Dr. Wahlert for the opportunity to learn even more about animals and their unique needs. When not at work she enjoys spending her time with her daughter.
Betsy and her husband moved to Hot Springs from the Seattle area a few years ago. With her love of animals and always wanting to work in a veterinary clinic, it’s no surprise this “city kid” finally landed on staff here, bringing with her several years of receptionist and computer experience.
When not at work, Betsy is very active with Southern Hills Community Theatre as actor/director/president. She and her husband also enjoy traveling, their dog, and the pace of life here in the Black Hills.
