Shana Loomis, DVM (she/her) did her undergraduate studies at Winona State University and graduated in 2004 with a BS in Cellular and Molecular Biology. She received her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from the University of Wisconsin, graduating in 2009. She completed her professional training from 2009-2010, with a medical and surgical internship at Fifth Ave Veterinary Specialist (now Blue Pearl Downtown) in New York City. While in veterinary school, she was president of the student chapter of the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA). She is also a member of the Wisconsin Veterinary Medical Association (WVMA), and the Milwaukee Veterinary Medical Association. Dr. Loomis has held a keen interest in veterinary dentistry since her training at the University of Wisconsin. She has been Fear Free Certified since 2017. Before opening Milwaukee Vet Clinic with her partner Matei, she worked in New York City. They have a daughter named Natalie, three dogs; Benny, Holly, and Otto, and three cats; Carter, Ashes, and Eddy. They enjoy hiking and tasting beers around the city.
Matei Bulgar (he/him) has a bachelor’s degree in accounting and a background in retail, management and finance. Having worked in retail for many years, the customer first attitude is critical for success.

Dr. Jeremy Page (he/him) started working here part-time and per diem in October 2021. He is now here part-time long term. Dr. Page graduated from UW-Madison in 2008. Dr. Page worked for 3 years in shelter medicine in Madison, WI, and another year in education before completing an internship in Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care Medicine at Lakeshore Veterinary Specialists in Glendale, WI, and continue to work with the organization (now a Blue Pearl hospital) as an Emergency and Critical Care Veterinarian through the summer of 2021. While this made him well-versed in the diagnosis and treatment of sick and injured pets, he missed working with pets and families when they weren’t experiencing an emergency and decided to move toward general practice and preventative medicine. Dr. Page has also completed his Fear Free certification and his beliefs and approach align with our own philosophy.
While Dr. Page considers Wisconsin his adopted home state, he grew up in Northern California and lived mainly on the West Coast before moving to Madison for school in 2003. Milwaukee in particular has come to feel like home, with its rivers, trails (Beerline!), and greenbelts providing plenty of access to nature while still offering the amenities and diversity of living in a city.
Dr. Page, especially with his Emergency Medicine background, has given him a different view into how we care for our pets. One of the things he would like to fix is the availability of large amounts of often contradictory information about preventative health care needs and diagnosis and treatments of disease in pets. Even accurate information available online or through acquaintances may not be directly applicable to a particular pet, depending on their individual conditions, background, family situation, and family goals and values.
To that end, Dr. Page aligns with us in his belief that agency is critical in health care for people and pets. This means that we need to provide the tools and knowledge to allow someone to make the best decisions that they can. We understand that what’s best for some is not best for all, and hope to work with families and their pets to find their best paths forward in good times and bad.
On the personal side, when he’s not caring for pets, Dr. Page enjoys hiking and exploring local waterways, listening to and recording music, and fixing up his 1890 house one project at a time.
Dr. Maggie Regner (she/her) graduated from University of Wisconsin-Madison with a degree in Veterinary Medicine in 1998. Dr. Regner has worked in the field for 23 years – 17 years as owner of Regner Veterinary Clinic in Kenosha. Dr. Maggie Regner grew up in Kenosha and wanted to be a vet all her life. She is very thankful that her parents encouraged her on her path.
After realizing that business ownership is creating a strain on both her professional and personal life, Dr. Regner decided to hang up her hat as an owner and get back to what she loved – caring for pets. This has allowed her to focus solely on client relationships and building the mutual trust and respect needed to provide the best care for the animals that are in her care.
Dr. Maggie has joined our clinic per diem in May 2020. She is now working part-time long term here. Dr. Maggie has joined our clinic because we align in many ways with her vision of client care. If there was one thing she would like to fix in the profession, it is wait times to get in for an appointment when a pet is sick. Dr. Maggie Regner has also fully embraced our Fear Free approach and just finished her certification.
On the personal side, Dr. Maggie Regner’s favorite quote is “The capacity to care is what gives life its most deepest significance.” – P. Casals One of her favorite books is still “Charlotte’s Web” but this may be because this was still being read at home until recently. Dr. Regner has 4 children. Maybe for the same reason, her favorite movies are Elf and the Harry Potter movies. In her spare time Dr. Regner loves to travel near and far with her husband and children. One day she hopes to reach and explore Africa.
Rachel (she/her) is a veterinary assistant with her prior experience coming from a high volume walk in clinic. She has enjoyed the transition to a Fear Free approach. A Packers fan, Rachel grew up just north of Milwaukee. Her passion for animals led her to become a wildlife ecology major at UW-Madison. After graduating she dove right into the veterinary field. She continues her educational development, mainly focusing on birds, horses, dogs and marine life.
Rachel is a firm believer that animals can change peoples’ lives for the better and in her work she tries to relay her love for someone’s pet and treat them as if they were her own. As an advocate for proper treatment and care of animals, she enjoys her part in educating owners as much as possible and also loves helping clients find new toys and treats that their pets will not only love, but will also supplement their health.
On the personal side, Rachel loves the “Crime Junkie” podcast, her favorite book is “Super Attractor” and her favorite movie “The Mummy”. She loves to exercise, ski, and spend time with her friends. Her favorite quote is “We never lose our demons, we only learn to live above them.” – Doctor Strange
