About Us

Our goal here at Glencoe Veterinary Clinic has always been to assemble a veterinary health
care team committed to providing exceptional client service and veterinary health care.

The Glencoe Veterinary Clinic team displays an unrivaled commitment to our clients through
continuing education, technological advances in veterinary medicine and service, and most
importantly, administering compassionate care to all animals entrusted to us.

John Thell, DVM

I am a graduate of the University of Minnesota and have been with the Glencoe Veterinary Clinic team since August 1979. Our practice was predominately-large animal at that time and I have really enjoyed the long-term relationships that have been established with those clients. It has been amazing to watch how the practice has evolved to companion animals and embraced technology. We now have laser surgery, digital x-ray, dental equipment and large animal ultrasound. I am proud of our progression, attitude and growing small animal clientele. I enjoy biking, traveling and baseball! I live with my wife, Karen and we have become empty nesters!

Patty Dahlke, DVM

Hello, my name is Dr. Patty Dahlke. I graduated from the University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine in 1994. I worked for a year after graduation at the Albany Veterinary Clinic in Albany, Minnesota. I moved to Glencoe and began working with the Glencoe Veterinary Clinic team in 1995. I enjoy working with the large animal patients in our area.
My family and I enjoy a variety of animals ranging from a horse to rabbits. We own a small beef herd and have a few chickens. One Golden Retriever/Yellow Lab 'puppy', a donkey and two cats round out our happy family!
I enjoy working with a variety of patients – both large & small animals. On the large animal side, I really like working with bovine ultrasound. I enjoy working alongside farmers and getting to know them and their operations. On the small animal side, I love doing laser surgery. I also am passionate about dentistry. I enjoy seeing the variety of cats and dogs and working with their owners. It’s my goal that each patient and client gets my complete medical attention and that clients feel free to ask all their questions concerning their animal’s health. I enjoy the challenges and variety that each day brings.

Paula Frick, BVSc

Hi, I am Dr. Paula Frick. I am originally from Nebraska and obtained my veterinary degree from the University of Liverpool, England in 2000.
I have been with Glencoe Veterinary Clinic team since September 2011. I spend a greater majority of my time doing small animal medicine and surgery, which I thoroughly enjoy. My favorite day to day activity is internal medicine, where I get the challenge of trying to figure out what is wrong with a patient that can not talk to me. My favorite large animal species is sheep and the challenges they present.
I live in rural Hutchinson with my husband and two children. We are very active in 4-H, which takes up most of our spare time. We have a herd of Shorthorn cattle, Boer meat goats, a flock of Dorset sheep, a few chickens, 1 4-H pig named Peaches, a dog and a handful of farm cats. If I have any spare time I enjoy reading and needlepoint.
