The origins of WVRC (Wisconsin Veterinary Referral Center) started with the establishment of the Emergency Veterinary Service in 1981 by a core of area veterinary hospitals. Over the years, other specialty practices joined the Emergency Veterinary Service and formed WVRC in Spring 2000. Today, WVRC is recognized as one of the largest, most diverse private veterinary emergency service/referral hospitals in Wisconsin.
