About Salt Creek Vet Clinic

 The owners of Salt Creek Veterinary Clinic, Dr. David Sudbrink and Dr. Lindsey Marrotte-Sudbrink, continue Doc Pete’s 42-year legacy of compassionate veterinary care for Weston Country and the Black Hills region.  They are excited to announce they are now offering new services to meet all your animal health needs.

Salt Creek Veterinary Clinic, established in 1972, takes pride in their ability to provide full service care for both small animal, equine, and herd health. Which includes health certificates, equine dental procedures, artificial insemination, vaccinations, pregnancy checking, fertility testing, c-sections, digital x-ray, and advanced diagnostic testing.

We offer a variety of preventative small animal services that range from vaccinations to routine wellness care and diagnostic testing.  Also, we offer routine surgical procedures, digital x-ray, full dental care, in-house bloodwork and even orthopedic surgery options.

Lindsey, Dave, and their caring staff invite you to come by to meet them and see the new and exciting changes that are happening at Salt Creek Veterinary Clinic.
