About us

Redland Veterinary Hospital has been providing comprehensive, high-quality veterinary care with an emphasis on exceptional client service in the south-central Kansas area since 2011.  We have a friendly, well-respected staff and a new facility, completed February 2017, featuring in-house chemistry, hematology & radiology services, as well as reproductive and carcass ultrasound services.  Our well-designed large animal facility has an indoor, heated working facility with a hydraulic chute.  Our practice serves clients with companion animals as well as equine and production livestock clients.  The addition of Dr. Tara Lynch as associate veterinarian equips us even better to serve your animal health care needs.

Lanie Carr, RVT

Lanie joined our team after graduating from the Veterinary Nursing Program at Colby Community College in May 2021. She has always had a love for animals and knew that this field was where she belonged. Some of her daily tasks include assisting the veterinarians with wellness exams, running lab work, vaccinations, and surgeries.

Lanie and her fiancé, Austin Murphy, live in Isabel with their two Corgi mixed dogs, Bert and Ernie.

Cayla Hoch
Veterinary Asst.

Cayla moved here from Oklahoma in May 2021. She is primarily our large animal assistant; however, don’t be surprised to see her helping on the small animal side as well. Cayla has a wide range of skills and experience that makes her an irreplaceable part of our team. 

She now resides in Hardtner with her husband Travis Hoch and three dogs, Murphy (a chocolate Lab/Weimaraner), Bandit (an Aussie/heeler), and Maisie (a Border collie/lab).

Julia Bruckner
Veterinary Asst.

Julia joined our team in the summer of 2022.  She holds an Associate of Science degree from Hutchinson Community College, and is currently in the Colby Community College Veterinary Technician program.

Julia participated in dance at HCCC and currently dances on her own, holds dance classes, and coaches her local high school dance team in her free time.

She loves spending time with her husband and her kitty, Lola.

​Nicole Ricke
Office Manager

Nicole is the newest addition to the Redland Vet team, joining us in October of 2022.  Her amazing organizational and clerical skills as well as attention to detail help keep things running smoothly.

Nicole is married to DJ, and they have three sons and a daughter.  When not working at Redland, she is kept busy with her family and their farm and ranch.

Elisa Stone

Elisa has been helping her husband's veterinary practice since their marriage in 2004.  Her father was a veterinarian, too, so although her education and "other work" is in the arts, she has been around veterinary medicine most of her life.  She also enjoys being with her family and being outdoors when the weather is nice.  Her hobbies include playing the piano, interior decorating and watching /attending K-State sporting events.

Clinic Cat

Ellie came to Redland from the Stone's ranch.  She was happily living life as a barn cat, when one day it was noticed that she held her head at an angle and couldn't walk straight.  Concerned for her safety, the Stones brought her in for an exam.  No diagnosable problem was found!  She was pregnant, so it was decided that she should stay at the clinic until she improved.  (Her kittens all were adopted by Redland staff members.)  Although she improved somewhat, Ellie is still a little odd, so she has remained a member of the Redland family.

Clinic Cat

CC was also a Stone family feline, until he became ill several years ago.  He lost a lot of weight and looked terrible!  He was diagnosed with a fungal infection, which requires repeated treatments over a long period of time.  His lowest weight was 5 lbs., and no one expected him to survive.  But survive he did, and he is now a healthy, big, beautiful cat!  He stays outside and in the large animal portion of the clinic with his friend Jillian.  He has surprised several people with his desire to be hugged, which can cause him to leap on an unsuspecting person's chest at any moment.

Clinic Cat

Jillian (aka Jill) looks like a mild-mannered calico, but she is actually a fluffy  killer!  She lives outside the clinic with CC, and helps keep the rodent population in check. Not one to be overly friendly, Jill prefers to stay in the background and will only occasionally allow human affection.  She is happy as long as she has access to food (whether it is a result of her hunting or our cat food bag) and a good napping spot.
