Dr. Bruce Cunliffe, DVM
Dr. Bruce Cunliffe graduated from the University of Minnesota with his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree in 1988. He worked as relief veterinarian in a small animal, avian and exotic practice for a short time before accepting a position at Blue Cross Animal Hospital in Minneapolis. Blue Cross Animal Hospital was a full service small animal practice focusing on medical and surgical care of dogs and cats. It was there that he met his wife Julie, who was working as a certified veterinary technician.
After working there for a few years, he began teaching Veterinary Technicians at the Medical Institute of Minnesota. He became the VT Program Director and held that position for 6 years before becoming Director of Education for the Institute.
In 1996, he took a short hiatus from veterinary medicine, earning a Master’s degree in Horticulture. He moved to Wisconsin in 2000 and operated a nursery for 15 years while continuing to work part time as a veterinarian. He worked at We Care Animal Hospital in Clintonville for 8 years before joining All About Animals Veterinary Clinic in 2008.
Julie and Bruce now own the practice, purchasing it from Drs. Andy and Becky Barr in 2016. They have two college age sons, Andrew and Ben, a dog named Ayana and a cat named Darlin’. They enjoy spending time with family and friends, gardening, camping, and serving at their church.
