A caring tradition since 1958. Our clinic was established on July 11, 1958 by Dr. David Engstrom. Dr. Randy Ryan and Dr. Alan Swanson were also partners and previous owners of this clinic. The caring tradition continues today with Dr. Edward G. Brauer II being the owner and practitioner of this practice. We are a full-service animal hospital providing compassionate care to our clients and their animals.

Immunization and Wellness Care

We strive to prevent illness whenever possible. The time and effort invested in Wellness programs has rewards for both pets and owners. Our Wellness programs are designed specifically for your pet and include: Comprehensive physical exam; internal parasite testing; heartworm and flea control; vaccination program; spay and neuter package; and specialized blood tests for all life stages.

Laser Surgery

We here at Marquette Veterinary Clinic believe in the advancement of surgical treatments for our animals. That is why we have a Lumenis CO2 Laser.


We offer the most advanced surgical techniques and technology. All patients are carefully screened for safety, and anesthetics are specifically tailored to your pet. Surgical services and facilities include: fully trained veterinary and technical staff, to ensure the safest, most efficient, state-of-the-art procedures for your pet; heated surgery tables for greater comfort; advanced sterilization techniques; ECG and oxygen saturation monitors; intensive after surgery care and full blood testing. We provide many options for our clients and their pets, including: spays, neuters, soft tissue surgery, tumor removals, eye surgery, laryngeal paralysis surgery, cruciate ligament repair, luxating patella surgery, bone plates and pins and FHO’s (Femoral Head & Neck Excision) .

Digital Radiography

We have a direct digital x-ray system to be able to offer our patients better radiologic diagnostics. We not only get better definition with our system but we can use computer enhancement to manipulate images to scrutinize images better than with x-ray film.


We provide ultrasound services with the GE Logic V5 Veterinary Ultrasound which gives us capabilities to look at the abdomen, vasular, cardiac, músculo skeletal and other exams. This can help us in obtaining more information about your pet with less invasiveness.

Dental Care

Regular professional cleaning is important to maintaining your pet's teeth. We use modern and safe ultrasonic cleaner to clean each tooth thoroughly - above and below the gum line together with a fluoride treatment to maintain the health of your pet’s teeth.

Customer Testimonials

Thank you to Dr. Brauer and his staff for once again taking such great care of Jack! If you're new in town, or thinking about choosing a Vet, let me tell you - this is it! I know our town has other great choices, but if your uncertain...pick this! There's so much personal mixed in with the professional, that I don't think the pets even know where they're at! Not too mention, how good you feel leaving your pet in their care. Thank you!!! Sandy Enright-Nadeau

We had our dog Kryptonite for 10 years. Dr. Brauer was his vet his whole life and we always liked our experience there, but when we had to make the decision to put our Krypy down, Dr Brauer and his staff made the experience the least traumatizing it can be to make such a choice. They were there for us, got us in quickly when he was suffering so bad I couldn't stand to watch it anymore, gave us all the information we needed to make an informed decision on which route to take and professionally but delicately and compassionately walked us through the whole experience. Thank you so much Dr. Brauer and staff...you are amazing!

The staff and Dr. are very compassionate! Our chihuahua Zoe was pregnant with one puppy. When she went into labor her water broke but the labor stopped. They were there for us even in the midst of their busy day. Unfortunately our puppy didn't make it but our Zoe did great after an emergency c-section. You will love the atmosphere of the office, very welcoming.

I can't say enough positive things about this vet clinic. I've been going there regularly for years and have been so impressed with firstly the professional care from Dr. Brauer. Besides our regular yearly healthy visits we've had many surgeries,late night panic calls and end of life decisions. Through all of these Dr. Brauer has maintained a big dose of empathy and care for me and my pet while giving the best of medical care.
The staff always has a kind word or gesture for my pet as we enter the clinic. That has meant so much to me. I'm a very proud mama and when one of my babies gets acknowledged and not ignored I know that I have made the right choice in vets.
Most importantly I trust Dr. Brauer and that is the bottom line!

Absolutely love the careing staff. Always available to answer questions and concerns I have of all of my fur babies. Dr. Brauer is kind, considerate and has always beebeen available even at 2am in the morning. All of my fur babies have gone to the Marquette Veterinary Clinic for over 20 years. Thank you all staff for taking care of my furry family children.

Dr. Brauer and the staff are wonderful! I have always had a great experience here and have a lot of confidence and trust in both Dr. Brauer and the staff.

Just had our dog in for a checkup. Always have excellent , friendly, knowledgeable care and treatment. Used a different vet in the area previously but switched to MVC and am so glad we did...much better care, concern, readily available , treatment and follow up. Thank You MVC for your excellent care of our fur family member!

Dr. Brauer and his staff are awesome, they are very kind and very compassionate about the pets they see. Thanks for caring for my animals, they love you!

It isn't until now that I can talk about my experience with Dr Brauer and his staff. On July 21st, after 20 precious years I had to make the impossible decision to say goodbye to my Nala. She was an amazing cat, a mommy twice and a companion so full of love. She meant everything to me. We knew she was getting close and I didn't want her to suffer. Dr. Brauer, explained what we could do and what the remaining time she had would be like for her. I just couldn't watch her waste away. The entire staff knew why we were there and were so kind and understanding. They gave us time to say our goodbyes and allowed us to hold her as she passed. I know we did the right thing for her. About a week later I received a sympathy card form Dr Brauer and his staff...of course I cried but what an incredibly kind gesture! Thank you for always taking such amazing care of my fur babies and for helping us get through such a difficult time!

I've been taking my dog here for seven years and have always had a pleasant and professional experience!
