About Green Bay and Allouez Animal Hospitals, Inc.
They say what goes around comes around and nothing could be truer for us. More than 30 years ago Dr. Neil Rechsteiner worked at the business he now owns today. He served in his teen years as a “kennel kid” and did odd jobs around the clinic learning first-hand what a career working with animals would be like. In 1982 when Dr. Neil completed vet school in Minnesota, he returned and in 1985 bought the business. In 1983 the decision was made to expand and the Allouez Animal Hospital was opened. Through the years, Dr. Neil had many kennel kids, including Becky Krull. In turn, Dr. Becky graduated in 2005 from the University of Wisconsin School of Veterinary Medicine and returned home to practice with her mentor, Dr. Rechsteiner. In 2008 Dr. Becky took her place alongside Dr. Rechsteiner and became a partner. Dr. Abby joined our team in 2016 as an associate, but she too once worked as a receptionist in her college days! Dr. Becky and Dr. Abby are the primary veterinarians at the Allouez location, while Dr. Neil can be found on the west side.
