Beltline Animal Hospital

Dr. Kayla Rothstein sees appointments Monday through Friday.  Dr. Rothstein loves helping pets live their best, healthiest lives, both through wellness appointments and helping find the right treatment plan when problems arise.

Dr. Richard Karlburg was a part of Beltline Animal Hospital since 1982 and has offered caring, compassionate veterinary care for Madison and Monona pets since then. Dr. Karlburg's retirement leaves us with big shoes to fill, and we are looking forward to carrying on his legacy.

Beltline Animal Hospital remains independently owned. Call or stop by to meet our team and learn more about us.

  • Jenni CVT

    Jenni has known she wanted to work with animals since reading James Herriot's books as a child. During high school, Jenni's mother showed her a newspaper clipping about the veterinary technician profession, and Jenni realized it was exactly what she'd been looking for!

    Jenni is a Madison native and attended Madison Area Technical College to receive her Veterinary Technician's certification. She first started working at a veterinary clinic while still in school in 2001. 

    Laboratory work is a special favorite of hers, but nothing pleases her more than swapping fun pet stories with clients!

    Jenni and her husband Chris have two wonderful sons, Cullen and Cian, who are heavily involved in sports and also enjoy video games, bowling, music, camping, and fishing. The family shares their home with Derryl the cat and a hamster named Samster.

  • Dayna CVT, CSR

    Dayna has been a Certified Veterinary Technician since 2016.  After a few years of working in practice, she wanted to focus more on the laboratory side of things.  It only took a year and a half for Dayna to start missing the hustle and bustle of a vet clinic, and getting to meet so many wonderful pets and their humans.

    Dayna lives in Verona with her husband Kyle, their cat Ramsey, and their rescue dog Dublyn.  If she had her say, she would add a few chickens to the mix, as well.  Maybe someday!

    In her spare time, Dayna enjoys running, reading, watching movies, and listening to true crime podcasts.  She can't wait to meet you and your amazing pet(s)!
