Our Veterinarians and Staff

  • Dr.
    Todd Carr
    Practice Owner

    Dr. Carr grew up in Moville, IA. Veterinary medicine is in his blood; his father, who practiced for 40 years, an uncle, and 3 cousins are all veterinarians. Dr. Carr attended Iowa State University for both his undergraduate studies and for veterinary school, graduating in 1997. He worked in a mixed animal practice in Rapid City for 6 years, before moving to Sioux Falls in 2003 to open Prairie Creek Pet Hospital. As the practice grew, he saw the need to expand our space to accommodate more patients, updated equipment, and additional staff. In January 2017 we opened the doors of our current facility on Westlake Drive. Dr. Carr and his wife Lisa have 3 children, Kinsey, Gage, and Quinn, as well as 2 fun-loving poodles, Frodo and Samwise. At work, he enjoys taking care of a variety of surgical and medical conditions. When away from the clinic, you might find Dr. Carr cheering at one of his kid's sporting events or camping with his family.
