Virginia L. Donovan, D.V.M.
Veterinarian / Practice Owner
Dr. Donovan graduated from the University of Nebraska Lincoln in 1989 and earned her DVM from Kansas State University in 1993. In 1999, with her mom has her receptionist and bookkeeper, and her dad as her veterinary assistant, she opened South Ridge Animal Clinic. At that time the clinic was just a small suite on Pine Lake Road and as the practice grew, more space was needed to provide adequate veterinary care for the increasing patient base. In 2010, Dr. Donovan and her staff moved the practice one block south to the current spacious facility on 29th St. This increase in space has allowed for more diagnostic and treatment services, an additional veterinarian, Dr. Lindsey Hanson, additional technical staff, plus a full time practice manager. These additions greatly add to the quality and quantity of care able to be provided for pets and their owners. The move proved highly successful for veterinary care in southwest Lincoln!
Dr. Donovan and her husband, Greg, have two boys, Scott and Sam. Their family holds dear many pets, including an amazing and loyal Labrador Retriever named Sunny, a bouncy and loving Vizsla named Sophie, and an ornery but lovable cat who answers to the name Simon, but only when he feels like it. Their very small pets include a velvety soft gray chinchilla named Zoomy, and a Lion Head bunny named Simba. The Donovans have found that their variety of pets make their household fun and there is never a dull moment!
Fun Fact: Dr. Donovan enjoys being very active in her sons' boy scout group activities.
