 William T. Carlisle, D.V.M.

 Dr. William T. Carlisle received his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from Iowa State University. Born in Northwest Wisconsin and growing up in Iowa, he always felt a yearning to return to Wisconsin. After graduation, he started his career at the Kenosha Animal Hospital where he felt right at home, and where he continues to develop and foster those strong doctor-client-patient relationships that he has become known for. His philosophy of always providing excellence in the medical or surgical care of his patients has resulted in a diverse clientele from far distances away. Known for his unyielding commitment to the patient, he has a reputation of being a workaholic, but gains great satisfaction from making a difference in the lives of his patients and clients. Dr. Carlisle is a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), the Wisconsin Veterinary Medical Association (WVMA), the International Veterinary Academy of Pain Management (IVAPM), the Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care Society (VECCS) and is serving his third term as president of the Southeast Tri-County Veterinary Medical Association (SETCVMA). Dr. Carlisle was instrumental in establishing the Animal ER of Kenosha and Racine and currently serves as its medical director. Over the years, he has found himself featured in several national publications regarding surgical cases as well as alternative cancer therapies. He writes a monthly column on veterinary medical topics where he shares his insights on the care of our special family members. He has served on numerous boards including church, school and family businesses, and currently enjoys being a part of the Natural Sciences Board of Carthage College. Dr. Carlisle's special interests include complicated soft tissue and orthopaedic surgery, difficult internal medicine cases and excellence in wellness and preventive care including weight management. He prides himself in always thinking "outside the box" in order to manage unresponsive clinical cases, especially cancer patients using alternative therapies. Dr. Carlisle shares his home with Wrigley, a four and a half year old Dachshund who was rescued at four months of age after he had been hit by a car, Millie, a one year old Dachshund mix and Honey, a Chihuahua mix who he took in as a rescue - Honey was a severe abuse case whose stories are on our website. After requiring several surgeries, Wrigley is finally back to 100%.  After owning several Dalmatians over the years,Wrigley was his first small breed dog and very quickly found his way into his heart with Millie following shortly thereafter and Honey was a more recent addition but has taken over Dr. Carlisle's heart and home. In his spare time, Dr. Carlisle enjoys the solitude of wilderness canoe trips, hiking, skiing, biking, sailing, listening to music ranging from classical to Pink Floyd and occasionally escaping to Florida to recharge his batteries and soak up some sunshine.
