  • Dr.
    Jennifer Ulm
    Owner

    Dr. Jennifer Ulm grew up in Yates City and attended school here in Farmington. She attended Blackburn College in Carlinville and graduated with a BS in Biology. She then went on to the University of Illinois for veterinary school. After graduating in 2001, she and her husband Matt returned to Farmington. She worked locally for other practices before deciding to start her own business. Dr. Jennifer started a veterinary housecall business in February of 2010. She loves visiting pets and their owners in their homes, but seeing a need to offer more services, took the next step and opened her first stationary clinic in March 2012. In May of 2019, she completed her new clinic building that we are currently using. Dr. Jennifer is excited to be able to have improved surgery and hospitalization capabilities. She still does housecall especially for those elderly patient or clients who are unable to make the trip to the clinic.

    Dr Jennifer and her husband, Matt, live in Farmington with their daughter, Phoebe, and son, Dax.  They share their home with a Standard Dachshund, Oliver; a German Shephard, Delilah; one cat, Bootsie; and a Netherland Dwarf rabbit, Rosie. In January of 2021, she got a new puppy, Eileen, to be raised as a Future Leader Dog for the Blind.
