David Mitzelfeldt DVM
Dr. Mitzelfeldt, co-owner of La Crosse Veterinary Clinic and graduate of the University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine, joined the practice in 1992. With over 30 years of experience in veterinary medicine, becoming a veterinarian wasn’t a decision for him; it was his destiny. He loves interacting with his patients and watching the bond between owners and their pets. He is married with three grown daughters, and as a cat lover, he has a geriatric tuxedo cat at home. In his spare time, he enjoys photography, reading, bicycling, working in the yard, and listening to music. As a veterinarian, he considers every day to be an adventure and looks forward to what each new day brings at the clinic.
Jamie Skime DVM
Dr. Skime has been practicing veterinary medicine since 2008, when she obtained her DVM from the University of Minnesota. She is Fear Free certified, and certified in Veterinary Medical Acupuncture. Growing up in rural Wisconsin, Dr. Skime always had dogs, cats, rabbits, chickens, and other animals around her. She also took care of orphaned and injured animals, including a baby field mouse in the house (which her parents didn’t appreciate). She originally started school to pursue a dual degree in physics and engineering, but while working in a veterinary clinic she found a love for veterinary medicine and decided to change her career path.
Dr. Skime has a variety of pets at home, including dogs Bo and Masha, both Newfoundlands; Sugar, Jack, Scarlet, and Jed, all goats; Charlie the horse; and Conkey, an American Spotted donkey. In her free time, Dr. Skime enjoys traveling, hiking, and experiencing live music.
Jill Kindermann DVM
Pursuing her love of animals and science, Dr. Kindermann became one of our associate veterinarians in June of 2015. A graduate of Michigan State University, she has completed continuing education courses in dentistry, ultrasound, and multi-specialty conferences. She loves helping pets and keeping them healthy, and she has a special interest in emergency medicine, critical care, and soft tissue surgery. Dr. Kindermann shares her home with two golden retrievers, Sully and Sookie, and a cat named Waffles. When she’s not caring for pets at La Crosse Veterinary Clinic, she spends her free time with family, reads, swims, and watches Michigan State sports.
