Dr. Lisa Peterson

I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-School of Veterinary Medicine in 2004. My Undergraduate work began at Luther College and was completed at UW. I joined the New Berlin Animal Hospital team in 2007. Since becoming a doctor of veterinary medicine, I have continued my education formally with many local and national conferences, as well as informally, from the everyday opportunities working with patients. My strengths as a veterinarian are understanding the strong bond between humans and their furry companions as well as always being willing to go the extra mile to find the information necessary to help each patient.

My husband Dan and I share our home with three fur-kids. Aida, a shih tzu, is such a doll. She is equally happy getting dirty in the park or getting primped for a photo. Phoebe is my miracle kitty. She was found when she was about a month old after being burned severely in a bonfire. One look at her poor little face and she was mine! I worked very hard to rehabilitate her and she is so sweet and has no idea that she might look a little different with her scars. I tell her she is beautiful every day. Hazel, a Boston terrier/pug mix, came into my life as a patient. She needed emergency surgery. We stayed late into the night performing the surgery that ultimately saved her life. After that, I just couldn’t part with her! Her loving demeanor and playful personality tugged at my heart strings. All our fur- kids are unique and greatly enrich our lives.

We have three beautiful children that are little loves and lots of fun. Our home can be a bit crazy, but I wouldn't have it any other way!
