About Us


The Animal Clinic of Tomahawk was purchased by Dr. Julie and husband Chris Germano in February of 2012.  While under this new management, the clinic has added such things as a pet wellness program, new diagnostic machinery, and waiting room renovations.  We all look forward to continuing to serve Tomahawk and the surrounding communities for all their pet service needs!
