Our History
Dr. Victoria Winfield received her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine degree from Kansas State University.  She spent 8 years after graduation at two progressive AHAA certified small animal practices before returning to Hastings.  Dr. Winfield is happy to be back in her hometown community and if she hasn't already, looks forward to meeting you and your furry friend soon.  Call today for an appointment with Dr. Winfield.

Companion's Choice Animal Hospital, located at the intersection of Second Street and Laird Avenue, has been an integral part of the Hastings community since 1950. Dr. Leo Lemonds built the practice and provided service to residents and their livestock. In 1987, Dr. Keith Baird purchased the property. He changed the focus of animal care from large animals to small companion animals, and had the insight to complete two additions to the building to provide a wider range of services to clients and their pets. In 2009, Dr. Victoria Winfield bought the practice. She is a Hastings native, and attended the University of Nebraska at Kearney and Kansas State University College of Veterinary Medicine. She has years of experience in small animal medicine and surgery. She thoroughly enjoys all aspects of veterinary medicine and surgery, but has a special interest in orthopedic surgery, working dogs, cats and pocket pets (including hamsters, guinea pigs, ferrets, rats, sugar gliders, etc.). Dr. Winfield has been fortunate enough to work on a wonderful assortment of animals including the Nebraska State Patrol dogs, some animals at Florida's Busch Garden's, including zebras and a white rhinocerous, assorted Nebraska wildlife, including bobcats, opposums, and skunks, and several wonderful large and small dogs, cats, pocket pets and reptiles. Companion's Choice has a friendly and quiet, small town atmosphere with progressive, large-scale capabilities
