Dr. Brian Lucas Hamm completed his veterinary education at the University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine in 2003. He practiced for three years before joining BluePearl Veterinary Partners (previously Veterinary Specialty and Referral Center) in Overland Park Kansas to complete a general rotating internship and small animal internal medicine residency. Dr. Hamm finished his residency in 2010 and became board certified in internal medicine in 2012. He worked for BluePearl Veterinary Partners until he purchased the Animal Clinic of Kearney in December of 2016. Although he loved specialty referral medicine, the unique opportunity to provide exceptional veterinary care to the city of Kearney drew him back to general practice. Although he is originally from central Illinois, he and his wife now call Kearney home and absolutely love their decision to raise their family here. Dr. Hamm's professional interests include ultrasound, endoscopy and endocrine diseases. In his spare time he enjoys gardening, fishing and spending time with his family.
