Dr. Kristine Collins
Dr. Kristine Collins graduated with her Veterinary Degree from the University of Wisconsin – Madison in 2001. She continued her education with a small animal surgical internship with Surgical Options in Madison.
She worked in a clinic south of Madison since 2002. She enjoyed working with all species of animals both large and small. However, since 2005 she has focused on dogs, cats and household pets in the areas of medicine, surgery and emergency care. She opened Sauk Point Veterinary Clinic to continue her ideal of being a neighborhood veterinarian to an extended community. She enjoys her calling as a veterinarian, and sharing her knowledge of general science and medicine with pet owners and her friends.
She has done volunteer work for the Dane County Humane Society and for Friends of Ferals. She is also an active participant in her local Rotary Chapter. Dr. Collins grew up in Omaha, Nebraska, then moved to Wisconsin with her husband Dave Manganaro in 1995. They have had many pets all their lives, and currently have 3 rescued cats of their own, and a foster cat currently in rehabilitation at their home.
Dr. Amanda Pike
Dr. Amanda Pike graduated in 2011 with a combined DVM/MS from the University of Wisconsin School of Veterinary Medicine. Her MS research focused on the unique physiology of hibernators.
After graduation, Dr. Pike worked as a house call veterinarian, emergency veterinarian and relief veterinarian (‘substitute vet’). Her favorite part of being a veterinarian is seeing the bond between people and their pets and learning the individual stories behind that bond. Although she enjoys the company of all species, Dr. Pike has a soft spot for timid pets and cats and works to make their health care experience as positive as possible. To give back, she volunteers her time for educational seminars and at Friends of Ferals and Dane County Humane Society.
When not working, Dr. Pike spends time with family and takes care of her pets, many of which are adopted: dogs, cats, chickens, a tortoise, a corn snake and fish. She has many hobbies including home remodeling, piano, gardening, hiking and listening to books and podcasts.
Dr. Andrea Lanphear
Dr. Andrea Lanphear graduated from University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Veterinary Medicine in 2001 along with Dr. Collins. Originally from Chicago, she decided to make Madison her home after completing both her BS in Zoology and later her DVM at the UW. In 2007, she became certified in Veterinary Acupuncture through the Chi Institute in Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine.
Dr. Lanphear shares her time doing both Western Veterinary Medicine at Sauk Point Veterinary Clinic and Eastern Veterinary Medicine through Anshen Veterinary Acupuncture, also available at Sauk Point. She particularly enjoys helping senior patients through acupuncture, nutrition, and herbal support. A cancer survivor herself, she has a passion for improving the quality of life in cancer patients as well as extending their lives.
When Dr. Lanphear is not focusing on her veterinary patients you may find her spending time with her husband, Dana, and their two dogs Kiko (pictured with Dr. Lanphear) and Tenzin up in the Northwoods of WI. She enjoys the outdoors, gardening, rehabbing houses or building new ones.
