Coldwater Animal Clinic was founded in 1944 by Dr. Norman Slavik. He was later joined by his brother, Dr. Jim Slavik. The first clinic was built on East Vine Street in Coldwater. In 1972, Dr. Norman Slavik II joined the practice followed by Dr. Dan Hellwarth in 1979. Our current groomer, Elaine Ebbing, joined the Coldwater Animal Clinic team in 1986. Dr. Urban Seger joined the practice in 1988 and is a current owner and practicing vet.
