Mission Statment

Serving the community through the practice of quality veterinary medicine by using my knowledge to benefit the community through the protection of animal health and welfare, relief of animal suffering, and protecting animal resources.

Our History

Community Veterinary Clinic’s journey serving the community has begun. However, it has been a dream in the making for twenty years. Dr. Sherrie Pleis and her husband have been looking to get back to Story County ever since they graduated from Iowa State University. As their friends and family settled in Story County the desire to come back home became evident. By taking a chance Community Veterinary Clinic was born.

The inspiration for community in the veterinary world came from the books of James Herriot. His books inspired Dr. Pleis to have a desire to serve people and animals alike. Sherrie has deep respect for the animal human bond and the preservation of the livestock industry. Our goal is to have a long history of serving Story County.
