Meet The Team
Dr. Dayton Williams, DVM
Dr. Williams was raised on a farm outside of Madison, South Dakota. As a child he would take care of any injured wildlife that would venture into his yard. From deer to ducks as well as pheasants.
In 1986 Dr. Williams graduated from Iowa State University with a Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine. After graduating he interned at the Kansas City Zoo, in Kansas City, Missouri, as well as the Houston Zoom, in Houston, Texas. After his internships he started in Marshall, Minnesota at a mixed animal hospital.
After 4 years in two different clinics Dr. Williams started working at the Great Plains Zoo in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, where he was the vet for 25 years.
In 1990 Dr. Williams opened All-Animal Pet Hospital while still working at Great Plains Zoo. Unfortunately in 2010 Dr. Williams developed an allergy to birds, therefore, he had to discontinue working at the zoo. However, that does not stop him from seeing all the other exotic pets.

Our Clinic Pets
Back in 1990, shortly after the clinic opened, this beautiful lady was surrendered to Dr. Williams. Her previous owners were unable to take care of her. Although, Dr. Williams is now allergic to birds he refuses to rehome her. Now she lives a spoiled life with us.
Back in 2015 this handsome boy showed up at a client's house in the middle of winter. After getting him back to full health he was ready for adoption. Unfortunately when he went to a new home he would keep escaping. From then on he has been living the dream with us at the clinic.
