Spirit of 76th opened for business for the Milwaukee area in April of 1980 in place of the old 76th gas station that occupied the site. Hence the origin of our name. The original staff was one kennel tech, one receptionist, one technician and the owner, Dr. Stan Thieman. Over the years, thanks to our loyal clients and support from our community, Spirit has grown to be one of the top veterinary practices in southeastern Wisconsin. Both the staff and the building has grown to accommodate the the needs and wants of our clients. In 1999, a small addition was added to the west side of the building. In 2003 Dr. Thieman decided it was time to retire, Dr. Troy Semandel, a doctor working under him, took over his legend and bought the building and business from him. Shortly after, in 2007, the major addition was made to give more exam space, surgical capabilities, ultrasound, kennel area and office rooms. Since then, the clinic has grown to be a four doctor practice. We provide care in all aspects of your pets well being, including preventative health care, diagnostic imaging, surgery, ultrasound, orthopedics, internal medicine, behavior consultations and boarding. Spirits goals have always been to provide the best veterinary care, like our motto states, "we treat your pet like they're our own." which has stood the test of time! Spirit of 76th Veterinary Clinic will continue to grow along with the times to provide our community with the best, most up to date medical and surgical care for your pets.

Spirit of 76th Veterinary Clinic Staff Profiles
Victoria DiazMy name is Victoria! I started my career as a hairstylist and found out very quickly that this is not what I want to do. My passion has always been caring for animals. With that being said, I plan to go back to school to become a vet tech. I also have 2 cats that are my world. I have a 16 year old whose name is "Orian" and a 3 year old whose name is "Serenity". In my free time I like to read, listen to music, bake and watch scary movies. I am excited to be a part of the Spirit of 76 team and hope to learn and grow. Show More
Lindsey SchliemIt was in elementary school when I was first introduced to the veterinary field. Every day after school I would come home and watch a PBS program called Vets in Practice. However, it wasn't until after high school that I had come to the decision of wanting to have a career working with animals. I attended MCC and in the Fall of 2015 I graduated with an Associates degree in veterinary technology. I'm starting out my humble beginnings at Spirit of 76 as a CSR and with time I wish to learn more and grow professionally in this amazing and enjoyable field. As far as pets of my own, I have had cats, dogs, fish, hamsters, mice, a gecko, and even three tree frogs. Currently I have a siamese named Freddie that i rescued in the spring of 2015. Aside from all things animal, I enjoy family time, occasionally being a couch potato but also going up north and exploring the sights and sounds of Milwaukee. Show More
