Dr. Dennis Bechtold

Dr. Dennis Bechtold joined Lake Country Veterinary Services in 2024, bringing with him a wealth of expertise and a deep passion for animal care. He obtained his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from the University of Minnesota in 2005, laying the foundation for his distinguished career in veterinary medicine.

Beyond the confines of the clinic, Dr. Bechtold finds joy in the company of his family. His wife, Rachel, is a certified veterinary technician, and together they raise their two sons. Their shared interests extend to gardening and cultivating a variety of plants on their hobby farm, where they endeavor to sustainably produce much of their own food.

The Bechtold household is bustling with the presence of their beloved pets. Alongside their loyal German shepherds, Chief and Major, a harmonious coexistence is shared with their feline friends. Demonstrating a deep-rooted commitment to animal welfare, their farm becomes a sanctuary for a diverse array of creatures, from chickens and peacocks to emus and geese, and an eclectic mix of other animals including goats, sheep, cows, pigs, a cockatiel, parakeets, and a llama named "Dolly," rescued by Dr. Bechtold during his veterinary school years.
