Jim Dager, DVM

Dr. Jim Dager received his DVM from Kansas State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine, and graduated in 2010.  Following graduation, he spent three years working in Texas as a mixed animal practitioner. 

As a Lincoln native, Dr. Dager is glad to be back living and working in his home town. He developed an early fondness caring for animals and this love pushed him to choose an occupation that allowed him daily interaction with animals in need. His professional interests include soft tissue surgery, diagnostic imaging, and routine health care.  Dr. Dager has a full house at home, consisting of 3 black labs, a gentle giant Doberman Pincher named Tyra, 3 cats, 3 horses, a mini donkey, and various barn yard animals including ducks and chickens.  He looks forward to meeting you and your furry family members!

Amy Walton, DVM

Dr. Amy Walton is a 2010 graduate from Kansas State University College of Veterinary Medicine. Her love of animals began very early in life. She grew up taking care of several animals and was an active participant in 4-H and FFA. She decided to become a vet after losing her beloved horse to colic and desired to help people and the animals they love.  

Dr. Walton worked as a mixed animal practitioner for three years prior to moving to Lincoln, NE in 2013. Since then, she has focused primarily on small animal medicine. As a veterinarian, Dr. Walton believes in minimizing stress during patient visits and promotes fear free handling. While she enjoys a challenging medical case, she feels that her greatest joy and accomplishments come from helping families and pets in need.

Her house and barn are full of very spoiled and loved fur children. She and Dr. Dager love bonding with their cats, dogs, horses, ducks, chickens, and donkey.  She spends her free time barrel racing and is an avid ice skater.
