Doctors & Staff

Dr. Stephen P. Carter

“The staffs at all the clinics are great people, as well as the doctors, and fun to be around. Growing up in Morris, I enjoy the small town living and the quality medicine we can offer our communities.”

An interest in, and compassion for the well-being of each patient, from a tree frog to a Labrador makes Dr. Stephen P. Carter one of our talented veterinarians.

After getting his bachelor's degree from the University of Illinois in 1986, Dr. Carter completed his DVM in 1991. He is a member of the AAHA, ISVMA, AVMA, Association of Reptile and Amphibian Veterinarians. He started with our practice in 1983 as a kennel technician and rejoined as a doctor in 1993.

Dr. Carter and wife, Sarah, have one daughter, Savannah and several pets: a Labrador, Tyree; a cat, Butter; and through the years have included snakes, lizards, rabbits, numerous small mammals; and a squirrel monkey named Alvin, while growing up.

He enjoys reading, fly fishing and other outdoor activities in his free time. Dr. Carter also has a 'mean' drop pitch in Wiffle Ball.

Dr. Rochele Hass

Dr. Rochele Hass is driven to provide exceptional and compassionate veterinary care, as well as open client communication.

Growing up in Eastern Iowa, Dr. Hass stayed true to her native roots by attending Iowa State University College of Veterinary Medicine where she earned her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine in 1996.

Licensed in both Iowa and Illinois, Dr. Hass practiced at several veterinary hospitals before accepting a position as a full-time veterinarian at Boughton Square Animal Clinic from 2002-2014.

A member of the American Veterinary Medical Association, Chicago Veterinary Medical Association, and Illinois State Veterinary Medical Association, Dr. Hass is highly qualified and skilled in advanced veterinary medicine and techniques.
