Enhancing the special relationship between pets and their people.

Our Team

Dr. Krebsbach, or affectionately known as Dr. Susan, has always had a passion for animals, but her initial career path did not lead her to veterinary medicine. After graduation from the University of Wisconsin in 1983 with a Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering, she started out as a Systems Engineer for the IBM Corporation. As her career blossomed at IBM, she was promoted to the level of Advisory Marketing Representative, where she enjoyed much success in the world of computers. In 1989 she was recognized as one of the top 5% marketing representatives in the country. Although IBM was a wonderful company to work for and she enjoyed professional success there, she heard another calling: veterinary medicine.

Dr. Krebsbach decided to turn in her briefcase for books and started veterinary school at The Ohio State University in 1991. She felt that this would provide a perfect opportunity to capture her passion for animals and encompass her business background. After graduation in 1995, Dr. Krebsbach worked as a small animal general practitioner for many years. During this time, her interest in and experience with animal behavior intensified increasing her knowledge and experience through performing behavior consultations, continuing education, and participation in the American Veterinary Society of Animal Behavior (AVSAB).  Because Dr. Krebsbach feels that there is such a tremendous need to address the issue of animal behavior problems and how to prevent them, she opened a veterinary animal behavior consulting service, called Creature Counseling, in October of 2000.

Dr. Krebsbach is a featured speaker at the University of Wisconsin School of Veterinary Medicine, as well as local professional and animal rescue organizations, has written an animal behavior series, and author of several articles on animal behavior. She is a past president and vicepresident for the Dane County Veterinary Medical Association. In addition, she is the founder and past president of the Dane County Friends of Ferals and has volunteered her services to several animal rescue organizations. For these efforts, Dr. Krebsbach has been recognized, including: "The Laurie Award" from the Watertown Humane Society, Alley Cat Allies' "Veterinarian of the Year Award for Excellence," "Medical Services Volunteer of the Year" award from the Dane County Humane Society, and Capitol Area Humane Society's "Outstanding Service Award."

Dr. Krebsbach is truly dedicated to the enhancement of the special relationship that exists between pets and their people.
