Dr. Berit Spieker, DVM, Associate Veterinarian

DVM, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign


Dr. Spieker was born and raised in a lovely city in northern Germany and then moved to the United States with her husband Wolfgang. Prior to veterinary school she gained practical experience as a Veterinary Assistant in several branches of veterinary medicine including general small animal practice, small animal emergency, equine and holistic veterinary medicine, and exotic animal veterinary practice. Dr. Spieker completed her veterinary degree at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, temporarily leaving her immensely understanding husband behind to pursue her lifelong dream of becoming a veterinarian. Dr. Spieker currently enjoys working as a general small animal practitioner at VCA Misener-Holley Animal Hospital and she is a member of several veterinary medical associations including the American, the Illinois State and the Chicago Veterinary Medical Association.
In her "spare time", Dr. Spieker enjoys horseback riding, spending time with her cat and cockatoo, and volunteers at shelters and another animal hospital. Wolfgang and her also spend time traveling, sailing, and biking.
