The Family Doctor for Your Best Friend


Prairie Ridge Veterinary Clinic, “The Family Doctor for Your Best Friend,” was established in January 1986 in Havana, Illinois, by Dr. Rodney Yetter. Born and raised in the Havana area, Dr. Rod has almost 30 years of experience, graduating from the University of Illinois in 1983. He is the only veterinarian in the practice, providing consistent medical care for your pet. After-hours emergency service is available with Dr. Yetter at the clinic in Havana.

We provide service to “all creatures great and small,” including dogs, cats, horses, llamas, and livestock. Our friendly, knowledgeable, experienced staff will be happy to answer any questions you might have. Please ask for either Karen or Erin.

Half-hour appointments are routine, allowing us to thoroughly and compassionately examine and discuss your pet’s health care needs. We strongly believe in making sure you understand everything concerning your pet’s health, and we provide written reports detailing our findings and recommendations.

We have an in-clinic diagnostic lab to provide timely information on your pet’s condition, allowing for quick and accurate treatment. In addition to veterinary care, we provide boarding and grooming services as well.

“We are so grateful for the hard work and extra research Dr. Yetter did for our Tansy-cat to find out why she wasn’t eating. If there is a time when your most precious friend is ill and you need to trust someone to care for them, Dr. Yetter is definitely that person! He went above and beyond to do everything he could to save our beautiful Tansy.”

“I began to bring in my labs into PRVC when I started working there, and was happy to have such a caring and knowledgeable doctor to take care of two of my best friends. It always amazes me just how much care goes into each and every animal, let alone the perseverance of Dr. Yetter and staff (I should call them family) in working out how to treat each and every problem.”
