Dr. Jerry Bellin Joins Wildwood Animal Hospital
Wildwood Animal Hospital and Clinic recently welcomed Dr. Jerry Bellin to their practice. Bellin joins Drs. Krogstad, Knabe, and Engelbert in providing exceptional care to local families and their pets.
Born and raised in Green Bay as a Packer fan, Dr. Bellin, his wife Jolene, four children, two dogs, two cats, two Indian Ringneck parakeets, guinea pigs and numerous fish now live in Stevens Point.
“What brought me to Central Wisconsin was a change of jobs and the ability for my wife to transfer within her company to the area also. What has kept me here are the friends we have made, I enjoy the nature that is all around, and my kids love their schools,” said Bellin.
Bellin is a graduate of UW-Platteville with a degree in Biology and earned his Veterinary degree from UW Madison in 2005.
“As many veterinarians say, I have wanted to be a veterinarian since I was a little kid, 2nd grade for me,” said Bellin. “I grew up with a menagerie of pets and enjoyed going to the doctor with them. As I grew older and these pets started to pass away, I thought it would be great to be able to help pets and educate clients on wellness care to prolong their pets’ lives and care for them properly as they get older.”
While puppies and kitten visits always brighten his day, along with interacting with the animals and people, Bellin enjoys the educational opportunities of his job.
“It is amazing how many times I talk to a client and get the comment about learning something new from our conversation,” he said. “This newly learned knowledge is what gives clients the trust and reliability in their veterinarian, and keeps them coming back to you for trustworthy and thorough care.”
In addition to expertise in dog and cat care. Bellin also brings interest and knowledge of exotic pets, including birds, reptiles, ferrets, rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, gerbils, and mice. No matter which creature he is caring for on any given day, Bellin prides himself on doing the best he can to help and care for that animal.
“I feel I am good at my job because I am so caring and compassionate for the pets, along with all of the doctors practice high quality medicine at Wildwood Animal Hospital and Clinic,” said Bellin. “Of utmost importance in quality care is to first diagnose the concerns at hand and then provide a proper plan of treatment.”
In addition to caring for clients’ furry family members, Dr. Bellin enjoys camping with his family, acting with his kids, singing in the Central Wisconsin Master Chorale, and playing lacrosse with all four of his kids.
