About Animal Tracks Veterinary Service LLC

Animal Tracks Veterinary Service was established in 2006 when Dr. Lenay Kumlin and Dr. Erica Bass joined forces with the intent of providing Vernon County with a full service diagnostic and client oriented companion animal veterinary facility.



lenay kumlin

Dr. Lenay Kumlin received her doctorate in Veterinary Medicine from Michigan State University in 1997 and moved to Viroqua, Wisconsin to start practicing veterinary medicine. She worked in a mixed animal practice for 9 years working with dogs, cats, horses, cows, sheep, goats and the occasional alpaca/llama. Although she enjoyed large animal medicine, her interest shifted to focus on companion animal medicine and surgery since she partnered with Dr. Erica Bass to form Animal Tracks Veterinary Service. She is a member of the American and Wisconsin Veterinary Medical Associations. She has a young family and enjoys spending time with them. She is active in many organizations outside of veterinary medicine including the Vernon Women Investors, Viroqua Partners, Vernon Memorial Foundation, and 4-H. Dr. Kumlin is very interested in dog obedience and will be very involved in programs in the Training Facility within the new clinic. She has several pets at home, including her Labrador Retriever, "Glory", Welsh Terrier, "Finn" and cat, "Bagheera".
