Meet Our Doctors

Dr. Jen Emerson-Mathis (with Rissa)

Dr. Jen received her degree in Veterinary Medicine from Iowa State University; she is a third generation veterinarian, and you may see her father on occasion as he is still practicing in Iowa today. After graduation, Dr. Jen joined a multi-vet practice just outside of Chicago for many years before moving back home to Iowa where she practiced in Adel, Iowa before starting a practice of her own here in West Des Moines.

Time out of the office is spent with her husband, young children, and furry kids. Should free time arise, you may find her scrap-booking, stamping, or rug hooking.


Dr. Tim Kuhnmuench










Dr. Tim Kuhnmuench received his degree in veterinary medicine from Colorado State University. His name looks intimidating but is easy to say, “coon-munch.” He completed a one year internship at a specialty hospital and then practiced in Colorado for two years prior to moving to central Iowa. Dr. Tim’s veterinary interests include: surgery, ultrasound, dentistry, pain management, acupuncture, internal medicine and preventive medicine for all life stages of dogs and cats. Outside of work he is usually spending time with his wife, daughter, dogs, and cats. He loves the outdoors including fishing, biking and gardening.
