A new veterinary wellness clinic in Sun Prairie was purposely designed as a model of convenience to alleviate anxiety in pets and people. The Checkout Veterinary Drive-Thru Wellness Clinic, is led by Director of Administrative Services, Marty Greer, DVM, JD, a certified Fear Free behavior health veterinarian. She will speak to Sun Prairie Rotarians and guests on September 7th.

When you drive into the clinic’s bay area don’t worry about the weather. You’re protected from the moment you drive up by a glassed bay all around you. The concept was developed by Greer and her husband and fellow veterinarian, Dr. Dan Griffiths.

Greer noted the Prairie Lakes Drive-thru concept is patented. “It is the only wellness veterinary clinic of its type in the country,” she said. (

A Model of Convenience

Checkout Veterinary was set up to provide wellness exams and vaccinations (including rabies), microchips, heartworm and other blood tests, microchips and other services. “It is not an emergency animal hospital for sick or injured animals,” explains Greer. “It’s the exact opposite. We developed the clinic to give pet owners convenient, easy access for keeping their pets healthy and up to date on immunizations and health concerns.”

Circle the building and pull into the garage/ bay. The familiar car wash-like convenience is coupled with enclosed, weather-protected, climate controlled parking.

You can stay in your vehicle and watch your pet’s exam through a large glass viewing window or park in the bay and walk into the exam room with your pet a few feet away. There is no waiting in a lobby or avoiding a large dog lunging at your kitten.

The Greer-Griffiths, who have been practicing veterinarians for 40 years have been planning the clinic for nearly seven years. They also own Nature’s Preserve Pet Care in Sun Prairie, and Veterinary Village and International Canine Semen Bank, Wisconsin/Illinois, in Lomira, Wisconsin.
