Beth Poulsen DVM, Owner
Dr. Poulsen’s passion for veterinary medicine started when she dressed up as a veterinarian for her 2nd grade Career Day. She spent her summers shadowing and working at a veterinary hospital in Stevens Point, WI during high school which further solidified her dream. She obtained her undergraduate degree from UW-Eau Claire and graduated from University of Wisconsin – School of Veterinary Medicine in 2007. She practiced as a wellness and emergency medicine veterinarian for over 15 years before opening Aurora Veterinary Care in 2023 with Dr. Leistico.
Dr. Poulsen’s special interests include soft tissue surgery, laparoscopic surgery, dentistry, and urgent care medicine. She is one of the few general practitioners in the state that is skilled in elective laparoscopic surgery, including laparoscopic spay and laparoscopic-assisted gastropexy. She also loves to see the difference that quality dental care can make in a pets’ life. Although these are her passions, her true fondness of the profession comes from the lasting connections she can make with her patients and their families.
Outside of the practice, Dr. Poulsen can be found doing her best to keep up with her family. Her husband, Keith, grew up in Waunakee and is a veterinarian at Wisconsin Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory. They have three children that keep them on their toes, as well as two Golden Retrievers, one lovable rescue kitty, and one Greek tortoise.
