Our Wheatland family has very exciting news!
This past week Dr. Roger Dupuis was awarded the Dr. Irwin Small Distinguished Alumni Award for his 50 years of veterinary services, including mentoring many pre-vet students in the Naperville area and service to the University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine. Dr. Irwin Small is a former University of Illinois Veterinary School faculty clinician, who was a great mentor, teacher and animal lover.
Dr. Chris Dupuis, Roger’s son, presented him the award - how cool! Chris is the current president of the University of Illinois Vet Med Alumni Association. Dr. Peter Constable, the Dean of the University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine, is also pictured.
Did you know that Dr. Roger Dupuis opened Wheatland Animal Hospital in 1990? While retired from active practice, Dr. Dupuis still assists in the management of our clinic and frequently offers advice to the rest of our staff. We thank Roger for his commitment to veterinary medicine and Wheatland Animal Hospital.
