The Twin Creek Animal Hospital Mission:
Our goal is to exceed your expectations. That means we will make your pet’s health care experience as stress-free, pain-free, and as educational as possible. We will explain every recommended procedure and its expected outcome in terms of diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis.
We strive to give people as much information as possible so they can make an educated decision about the care of their pets. We also try to offer graduated levels of care, giving owners options, so we can best meet the needs of people with all levels of income.
We want you and your pets comfortable, happy, and cared for.
Erich V. Rachwitz, DVM
Erich earned his Bachelor of Science in Biology from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in 1996 and his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from Kansas State University College of Veterinary Medicine (KSUCVM) in 2001. He was an associate veterinarian at a two-doctor practice for 2 years, followed by 2 more years at a five-doctor practice. From these experiences he developed a awareness of the disconnect between practice size and practice progressiveness. From that came his need to open Twin Creek Animal Hospital, P.C. in 2005, a practice that would stay small, but never lose a technological edge. His special interest is Dentistry and Oral Surgery. He continues to pursue advanced training in this field. He is currently in an Alternate Pathway Residency to become a board-certified veterinary dentist, serves the region between Lincoln and Des Moines in that respect. His mentor is Dr. Barron Hall, DVM, FAVD, AVDC of Vienna, VA.
He loves to work, but when not working, he enjoys spending time with his family, and anything outdoors, especially in the mountains. He is a member of the Bellevue Chamber of Commerce, the Nebraska Veterinary Medical Association, the Nebraska Academy of Veterinary Medicine, and the Foundation for Veterinary Dentistry. He donates to Fontenelle Nature Association, Ducks Unlimited, Bellevue Women’s Club, American Cancer Society, the Robert Wiggs Memorial Scholarship at Texas A&M, the Foundation for Veterinary Dentistry, and dozens of other charities, school PTA’s, and churches. He does pro bono work for the multiple regional police departments including the Bellevue Police Department Canine Unit.
