Dr. Joanne Gaines 

Veterinarian/Owner – Chief of Staff

Dr. Gaines is a Kansas State University College of Veterinary Medicine graduate. She has been practicing in the Omaha area since 1999 and opened Ridgeview in 2001. She is scheduled M-Th 8-3, and varying Saturdays. She is a member of NAVM, AVMA, NVMA, and AAFP. Her vision is to exceed your expectations. Your pet will receive the highest quality of medicine, anesthesia, surgery, and care. It is important to her that you are comfortable with how we treat you and your pets. You are welcome to be present for treatment, exam, vaccinations, blood draws, etc. Dr. Gaines performs ultrasounds and echocardiograms for our patients and on referral from other clinics. Ridgeview Animal Hospital is in the process of becoming a Cat Friendly Practice and Dr. Gaines will soon be a Feline Advocate.

We are proud of our facility and would be pleased to give a tour behind-the-scenes! Please stop by and meet Dr. Gaines and tour our hospital! Dr. Gaines and her husband, Adam, have five children: Jack, Lucy, Vivien, Jay, and Eddie. They are foster parents, so may have more than 5 kids at any given time (right now they have one foster daughter in the house!)  They have a mixed breed dog, Tex, and adopted a mixed breed dog, Angus, from HUGS last summer.
