Welcome to Wildcat Vet Services

Your Small Animal and Exotics Veterinarian in Manhattan, KS
Call us at 785-320-2770


Our family is emBARKing on a new adventure into practice ownership!  We have taken a leap of faith and have remodeled the old Country Stampede office on Tuttle Creek into the newest (and my opinion, coolest) new vet clinic in town! 

I am Dr. Trisha Kvasnica (a.k.a. Dr. K), a licensed veterinarian treating all types of pets. Your pet's health and well- being is very important to me and every step will be taken to give your pet the best possible care. I don’t claim to be an expert in everything, but if there is a unique problem, I will do extensive research to figure out how we can help your furry, scaly or feathered family members. 

Wildcat Vet Services is a full-service veterinary hospital. I have over twenty years in practice and am experienced in all types of medical conditions, surgical procedures, and can help make treatment recommendations tailored specifically for your family. Beyond first-rate pet care, I will take every effort to provide stress-free healthcare either in the clinic or at home. My goal is to have patients who love coming to see their dogtor. I am still offering house call services as the need arises. End of life care at home is a very important aspect of the care we provide at Wildcat Vet Services. 

I am so excited to have this opportunity to serve our community! I am a friend to breeders and rescue groups. I have a heart for encouraging and mentoring young people who have an interest in the field, so don’t be surprised if there are extra people watching in the exam or surgery room. I have also spoken at preschools, high schools, clubs, and service organizations in the area. I love sharing my gift with others. 

There are a number of resources on this site for you to learn about how to take better care of your pets. Browse around and look at the articles and pet videos found in the "Veterinary Topics" bar at the bottom of this page. If you want to ask a question call 785-320-2770 or email us and we'll do our best to promptly get back to you.

Read What Our Clients Say

  • "Dr. K came to our home on short notice to care for our Neapolitan Mastiff. She was extremely kind and so professional and caring. I would recommend her 100% for all your four-legged family members! Truly, the best!!!!"
    Bev D.
  • "If I could give 10 stars, I would. These are some of the sweetest, most gentle people I’ve ever met. I honestly could not have wished for a better experience and treatment than my dog and I got today. My dog is very nervous, and I feel like the doctor and all the techs really cared about getting him comfortable with them and the office. They even allowed me to stay late to finish cutting his nails. I truly had a wonderful experience, and I can’t say enough wonderful things about them. 11/10, would recommend."
    Anna H.
  • "Dr. K has been caring for our animals for many, many years. She is compassionate and sensible. But I also trust her partner Dr. Wallentine. She is thoughtful and an excellent vet. Plus reasonable prices."
    Angela H.
  • "Cannot say enough about the caring staff here. They desperately tried to help our 10.5 year old kitty get better, and they let us visit with her while she was getting IV medication over a few days. They loved her up and were sad when they finally recommended we let her go. They gave her pain medication and kept her as comfortable as possible, right up until her family could be with her when she passed. They helped arrange an individual cremation when my kids wanted her ashes. You won't find anyone who cares more about your babies or who tries more to help them be healthy."
    Rhonda Z.
  • "Your pets will love this place. Mine do. 🐾🐾
    Exceptional service from the most compassionate, awesome staff and very versed veterinarians!"
    Stephanie M.
  • "We had our first visit here with Dr. Wallentine and we were so impressed with her and the entire clinic staff. They were so kind and patient and took time to really meet our new puppy and make sure she felt safe and comfortable. She gave us some great advice and tried to advise the best care for her without charging us an arm and a leg. The prices were very reasonable. We're so glad we found a vet that is so welcoming and good to our fur babies! Highly recommended!"
    Katie S.
  • "Thank you for coming and helping us in our difficult situation. You were very calming and reassuring for us. I can't thank you enough for helping us! Dr. Trisha Kvasnica is amazing! Thank you SO much!"
    Kashaya Z.
  • "We had to say goodbye to our beloved cat, who was wasting away with cancer. He hated car rides and going to the vet, so we are so grateful Dr. K was able to come to our house and help him have a stress-free, painless transition to the other side. She was extremely kind and sympathetic and I can't even express how glad I am to know she is doing this work for the community."
