The Pet Clinic Team


Dr. Hanna’s love for animals started early in a home full of a variety of pets including turtles, lizards, parrots, dogs, cats, rabbits, Guinea pigs, hamsters and gerbils. She decided she wanted to be a vet when she was 5 yrs old and began working in clinics by the time she was 13. She attained her degree from Iowa State University where she was honored with the Gentle Doctor award for the class of 1993. She joined The Pet Clinic family in 1998. At the end of 2015, Dr. Hanna and her husband Mike became the owners of The Pet Clinic. They are thrilled to continue The Pet Clinic legacy that Dr. Curry and Dr. Teter established by providing top notch veterinary medical care coupled with an unusually high level of client service. Her professional affiliations include the Nebraska Academy of Veterinary Medicine where she held an officer position, The Humane Society of the United States, Humane Society Veterinary Medical Association, Association of Veterinarians for Animals Rights and the American Animal Hospital Association. At home, Dr Hanna’s family includes her husband, Mike, and 3 children – one son in college, one son heading to college, and a daughter in high school. Her four legged family of rescues continues to grow with “Yogi” and “Annie” the dogs, “Mezzie,” “Poppy” and “Frannie” the cats, “Pixie” the chinchilla, and “Gertrude” and “Helga” the Guinea pigs...and, this just in, 2 geckos named Kronk and Yzma. Dr. Hanna especially enjoys preventative medicine, internal medicine and behavior cases.

CAROL CURRY D.V.M. Emeritus 

Dr. Curry graduated from the veterinary medical school at Iowa State
University in 1977 after completing her undergraduate degree at the
University of Minnesota. She then served in a post-doctoral internship at
Angell Memorial Animal Hospital in Boston before returning to the Midwest
to practice. In 1982, she joined with Dr. Barbara Teter to become one of the
original founders of The Pet Clinic. She is a member of American Animal Hospital Association, American Veterinary Medical Association, Nebraska Academy of Veterinary Medicine, and the Association of Reptilian and Amphibian Veterinarians. Dr. Carol Curry has a special interest in both ferret and reptile medicine, although she originally wanted to work with horses.

However, she felt small animal medicine was more challenging and she became a bird fanatic at her job in Boston under one of the first people to do avian medicine, Dr Petrak. Unfortunately, after several years of almost exclusive avian practice, she became allergic to feathers and had to give up her passion for birds.. Another one of her life's passions involves music. She plays guitar (regular and classical), a little banjo, and bass clarinet. Travel is also another thing she really enjoys. As a kid, her family drove all over the US and Canada in their camper. Now she enjoys other continents and countries like New Zealand, Peru, Kenya, and China. Dr. Curry is now the proud companion of a 12 year old shih tzu called “Riley.” She inherited him from a dear client who passed away from cancer. He comes to work with her every day and nobody has ever met a dog who can spin in tight circles before going up the stairs the way “Riley” can!


Dr. Barbara Teter graduated from the veterinary medical school at Michigan State University in 1977. She is a member of American Animal Hospital Association, American Veterinary Medical Association, Nebraska Academy of Veterinary Medicine, and the American Association of Feline Practitioners. Dr. Teter is interested in all aspects of general veterinary medicine and surgery. Her decision to become a veterinarian was based off her interest in medicine and love of animals. In 1982, she joined with Dr. Carol Curry to become one of the original founders of The Pet Clinic. She was born in Lincoln, and moved to multiple cities throughout the Midwest. Outside of The Pet Clinic, Dr. Teter is passionate about whitewater kayaking, biking and playing tennis. She also participates in the Nebraska Wind Symphony and the Black Woods clarinet choir due to her love of creating beautiful music with others. At home, Dr. Teter has two three year old cats, “Julius” and “Libby.”


Dr. Rasmussen is an associate veterinarian and has been at The Pet Clinic P.C. since 1994. After earning an undergraduate degree from Dana College, she received her doctorate in veterinary medicine from Iowa State University in 1981. She practiced medicine in California for ten years prior to returning to the Midwest. Dr. Rasmussen is a member of the American Animal Hospital Association, American Veterinary Medical Association, and the Nebraska Academy of Veterinary Medicine. She has a special interest in feline medicine and when not at work, enjoys her cats, traveling, gardening, cooking, and reading..
