Dr. Gloria has many years of experience as a veterinarian. She received her DVM (Doctor of Veterinary Medicine) degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Veterinary Medicine in 1987. She grew up outside of Oakfield, WI, where her family has always had Arabian horses. She rode horses from a young age, was a 4-H member, has shown in English & Western-style riding, competed in competitive trail rides, has trained her own horses and helped raise foals on the family farm. As a veterinarian, she has worked in all-equine and mixed-animal practices. She completed specialty training in large animal internal medicine, in a 3-year residency, at the UW-Madison SVM in 1991. She practiced in Ohio for many years and then came back to Wisconsin in 2009 to work at Fredonia Veterinary Clinic. In September, 2016 she started her own solo equine practice: Monarch Veterinary Service, based in Saukville, WI.
Dr. Gloria enjoys getting to know her clients and their horses. She strives to provide quality care at a fair cost. She provides general equine veterinary care including preventative medicine- health check-up exams, vaccinations, parasite control with fecal egg counts & deworming recommendations, dentistry with teeth floating, and nutrition/feeding recommendations. Other services provided include Coggin's testing, health certificates, lameness exams, pre-purchase exams, urgent care & emergencies (illness, colic, injury, laceration repair, eye problems), reproductive (pre-breeding evaluation, AI, pregnancy exam, ultrasound, foaling), newborn and older foal exams, castrations/gelding, minor surgeries/removal of growths, evaluation of skin problems & lumps, bumps, or growths, and more. She provides routine farm calls & urgent/emergency calls during regular hours as well as after hour emergencies. Accommodations can be made for client's schedules when needed for late in the day or Saturday routine calls. Dr. Gloria also provides client education. She compiles an Equine Newsletter for clients, which includes articles written by her as well as outside information and links on important, current topics. The newsletters and articles will be posted on this website. She also will gladly speak to local horse groups on request as the schedule allows. Dr. Gloria also volunteers as the 4-H leader for the Ozaukee County Veterinary Science project.
When not seeing horses in her practice, Dr. Gloria Harrison also enjoys fishing with her husband in the Northern Kettle Moraine Lakes, bike riding, walking their 2 Pug dogs, petting their cat, "Maynard", and flower gardening. She has a butterfly garden, where she's found Monarch butterfly caterpillars. Dr. Gloria brings them inside for protection and then, after emergence from the chrysalis, releases each of them as an adult Monarch butterfly. Thus, the inspiration for Monarch Veterinary Service, as Dr. Gloria also transforms her veterinary practice into her own new solo equine practice.
