Dr. Brittany Ishmael
Dr. Brittany Ishmael grew up on a farm, and the many experiences she had there sparked her passion for the veterinary profession. Her interest in animal care goes deeper than loving pets—she has always wanted to know exactly why things happened the way they did. As a full-time veterinarian and the owner of Advanced Veterinary Care, Dr. Ishmael truly gets to live her dream!
After attending community college, Dr. Ishmael graduated from Western Illinois University before being recruited to attend the Royal Veterinary College in London, England. There, a professor told her that he would never have to worry about her because she would never stop asking the “why” questions!
Upon graduating with her veterinary degree, Dr. Ishmael practiced animal medicine as an Associate Veterinarian for nine years. In early 2015, she and her husband Darren achieved their long-time dream and opened their very own clinic, Advanced Veterinary Care.
Dr. Ishmael and her husband have a beautiful young daughter, Gwyn, who already demonstrates a deep love for animals. The family shares their home with four dogs and 8 cats. They also keep seven horses and a pony.
When she’s not tending to her duties as a veterinarian and clinic owner, Dr. Ishmael enjoys caring for her own animals and participating in competitive ranch sorting. She also loves trail riding, and camping with her horses.
