The former Ground Round restaurant has gone through more than a few reincarnations over the years – most recently as The Grille – and could soon be home to a veterinary clinic.

Prairie Side Veterinary Hospital has outgrown its facility on Lathrop Avenue, and owner/veterinarian Ed Susmilch told The Journal Times the hospital currently occupies about 1,500 square feet, and the new building has around 5,700 square feet.

“Our facility in Racine is relatively small … and the business has grown,” Susmilch is quoted as saying. “We have been looking for a facility that would allow us to see more clients and give us a little more freedom so we are not stepping on everybody’s toes when we are working all day.”

The new location puts Prairie Side in an ideal location for both visibility and to serve patients in both Mount Pleasant and Racine, the story continues. It should be open next summer.

Susmilch’s conditional use permit goes before the Mount Pleasant Planning Commission Wednesday. Approval has been recommended by village staff.

The Planning Commission meeting begins at 1 p.m. at Village Hall, 8811 Campus Drive. Call (262) 664-7800.
