Brian Reiter, DVM - Veterinarian
Dr. Brian Reiter grew up on a farm with a close-knit family of 10 in Hillsboro, MO and still calls Hillsboro his home today. A graduate of the University of Missouri, School of Veterinary Medicine, Dr. Reiter started this practice in 1998 and has been a driving force for the team of professionals at Bentley Animal Hospital. Although he is passionate about everything he does, his work with dentistry and routine surgeries tend to be his favorite. Dr. Reiter is a very goal-driven and hardworking individual and he is constantly encouraging all of his employees to excel in everything that they set out to do as well as making them feel like family. When Dr. Reiter isn't in the office, he enjoys being outdoors and spending time with his family: his wife, Kay, and their three kids, Emily, Matt, and Michael. The family also includes Gibson the black lab, Ace the Draathar Dog (also known as Acelyn Von Buschensmacher), and Tigger the tabby cat.
