Dr. William Rice


Dr. William Rice

Dr. Rice is the managing DVM at Lakeside Animal Hospital. He graduated from the University of Minnesota in 1986, and has spent his career at Lakeside Animal Hospital. Dr. Rice enjoys general practice and is particularly interested in internal medicine and dentistry. He sees Lakeside as a big family where we laugh, cry, get mad at each other and then celebrate each other.

He was born and raised in Milwaukee and has only been outside of the Milwaukee area for his education. He thinks, speaks and acts like a Milwaukeean and believes there is a basic goodness that most Milwaukeeans share.

When not at work he enjoys brewing his own beer. He’s a big sports fan especially for the Brewers, UWM Panthers, Badgers and Packers. He is an avid runner and enjoys spending time with his wife, Sara, at home and at their cottage in Tomahawk, Wi. They have two adult children, Laura and David.  Their furry children include an eleven year old golden retriever named Rudy and a three year old cat named Finnoagain who acts as only kittens can chewing, running and stealing Rudy’s food.

Favorite book: Usually the one I am reading. Enjoys history books and an occasional science fiction book.

Person admired:  Presidents Lincoln and FDR, Nelson Mandela, Mother Teresa, the medical personnel of Doctors without Borders and my late father.

If you could have one superpower what would you choose? Growing up I wanted to be able to fly like Superman. The problem with that superpower is back then I didn’t like heights and I still don’t.

When playing rock, paper, scissors which one is your go to?  Scissors
