Conveniently located at the junction of Hwy South 17 and US Hwy 63 in West Plains, Missouri, Dr. Eugene Ulmanis and all of us at "the big red barn" are here to routinely serve your dogs and cats.

All animals have different health needs as they grow and mature, so we at the Animal Clinic of West Plains emphasize preventive medicine to ensure that all animals enjoy the best health at every life stage.  We also offer a full range of professional medical services, including diagnostic testing and imaging, surgical and dental services for dogs and cats of all ages.

Our goal at the Animal Clinic of West Plains is to offer exceptional medical care with excellent customer service in a fun and friendly atmosphere. We are a team of professionals who are passionate about what we do and the animals we care for.  We  sincerely hope you will allow us to be of service to you and your furry family members!

What's Happening at the Clinic

Updated: September 5, 2023

Due to some upcoming staffing shortages, we will be closing on Fridays effective September 1st, 2023.  As of right now, this is not planned as a permanent change to our hours. We will keep you posted as this evolves and thank you for your understanding!


Effective September 1st, our long-time groomer Lisa will be working full-time out of her own grooming shop located here in West Plains. August 31st will be the last day she will be working out of our clinic - we are referring all of her clients directly to her for future scheduling and appointments!

Check her out on Facebook at Simply Grooming or call her directly at 417-372-5047 to schedule your appointments!

We will not be replacing Lisa, and effective 9.1.2023 will no longer be offering in-house grooming services.

Scheduling Appointments

Our appointment schedule remains heavily booked.


The current wait time for routine care appointment (including non-emergency surgery and routine dental cleanings) is approximately 3-5 weeks.


We encourage you to book as far in advance as is possible for your pet's routine care.


Thank you for remaining patient and kind with our staff when you call, as we are doing our best to manage our case load while maintaining high standards of care for all our patients and accommodating patients with emergency and urgent issues..
