By 1975, the hospital added Dr. Reilly to meet the increasing need for veterinary care. The Iowa DOT began building Highway 218 in the 1980s and purchased the property that “Veterinary Hospital” was located on. In 1987, Drs. Winegarden, Guldner, and Reilly bought a new facility at 400 Jefferson Street downtown.
Dr. Bradley Kneeland joined the practice, which was renamed “Veterinary Associates,” in 1993. Pawsitive Pet Care was added as a second location at 3257 West 4th Street, near where the Ansborough Avenue Hyvee is now located. Drs. Winegarden and Guldner retired in the late 1990s.
The Iowa DOT was at it again in 1999, when they purchased the Jefferson Street location to build the Expo Plaza. Drs. Reilly and Kneeland moved to the West 4th Street location and began caring just for dogs, cats, and small exotics.
In May 2008, Pawsitive Pet Care moved to our current location at 1799 Ansborough Avenue. Dr. Reilly retired in 2009. We’ve continued to learn and grow over the years, adding services such as ultrasound, digital radiology, acupuncture, cold laser therapy, allergy management, and more! Our latest addition is associate veterinarian Dr. Rebecca Chadwick, who joined the practice in 2017.

Dr. Chadwick's Bio
Dr. Chadwick’s favorite cases are exotic animals, dermatology (the icky-er the better!), and geriatric care. She lives in Cedar Falls with her husband, Seth, and their two rescue cats, Eve and Zan. Outside of work, Dr. Chadwick enjoys gardening, riding her horse Tico, and doing DIY projects with Seth.
Jess loves spoiling all the fury kids that walk in the door. Her favorite part of her job is dental prophies (teeth cleaning), monitoring surgeries, and working with exotic patients. She enjoys spending her free time outdoors with family and friends. She has two cats, Frito Burrito Lay and Luke, as well as many foster kittens.
Christie’s interests are spending time with family, her boyfriend and friends, horseback riding, fishing, and anything outdoors. She lives in the country and has several horses, dogs, and cats. She says, ‘It’s very hard to choose my favorite because each and every pet holds a special place and means the world to me!’
At home, Deb enjoys the company of her two boxers, Jed and Griffin. When not pampering her critters, Deb is pampering her two sons and 7 grandchildren. Her other favorite activities include traveling, working outside, and shopping.
I have two animals right now, but I’d love to have a lot more! My dog is a lab/pit bull mix named Mya who I rescued when she was 8 weeks old. My cat is all black and named Sir Slinks A Lot (aka Slinky) who used to be a farm kitty.
Fun Fact: I love German Shepherds and someday want to have a German Shepherd rescue.
I have three Pomeranians named Boots, Teemo, and Ziggs. I also have a sugar glider named Rafiki that I adopted. They all mean the world to me!
Fun Fact: I am a HUGE nerd. I love video games, comic books, and cosplay conventions!
Do you have any pets? I have a kitten that I adopted from PPC. His name is Bristow and he’s such a sweetheart! He was found in a garage as a kitten and bottle fed by Jess.
Fun Fact: I love to draw and do graphic design.
