The team at Blackwell Animal Hospital is comprised of highly trained and experienced animal health professionals who have a genuine love for working with pets. Our staff treats every patient with the highest quality of medical care as well as a gentle touch.
Dr. Bruey is a graduate of the University Of Missouri College Of Veterinary Medicine and earned her bachelor’s degree in Animal Science from Kansas State University. Dr. Bruey purchased the Blackwell Animal Hospital from Dr. Larry Wyckoff in 2021. Dr. Wyckoff had built and ran a very successful mixed animal practice for over thirty years.
Originally from Caldwell, Kansas, Hayley’s agricultural background inspired her to become a veterinarian so that she could help farmers and pet owners alike. In addition to receiving her doctorate at Mizzou, Dr. Bruey has worked in a variety of clinics throughout Missouri & Kansas.
Hayley is the youngest of four siblings and aunt to 8 (soon to be 9) nieces and nephews. When she is not driving a combine and tractor during harvest, she enjoys reading, crocheting, golfing, baking, and spending time with family. Dr. Bruey lives in South Haven, KS with her fiance and two dogs, Maggie & Maverick, and cat Bru.
A graduate of Oklahoma State Veterinary College, Ashley’s favorite part of being a veterinarian is the ability to be all of the specialists in one doctor. “As a vet, we are often dentists, anesthetists, surgeons, radiologist, clinical pathologists, ER doctors and more! If I have to choose my favorite aspect, it is probably cow/calf production medicine.” Ashley grew up on a small farm & ranch in Southeastern Oklahoma and is well suited to meet the mixed animal needs of a rural community.
According to Dr. Senn, “The country & rural lifestyle has always had a special place in my heart. Most evenings were spent doing chores & every Sunday was spent in church. It wasn’t uncommon to find me with the rejected baby goat kid in a laundry basket in my bedroom or to find me asleep in the shavings next to my show heifer. My compassion for animals runs deep.”
When asked why she became a veterinarian, Dr. Senn explained, “Most people think you become a vet because you love animals. I became a veterinarian because I love building trusting relationships with people. I became a veterinarian so that I can help people by helping their pets & livestock. The career path of veterinary medicine chose me & I’ve loved every minute of it.”
Dr. Senn enjoys spending time with her husband, Colton, and their dog, Doc. Ashley enjoys Oklahoma sunsets and sunrises, pond fishing, riding horses, and tooling leather. She is a hardworking, caring and an honest individual. If she doesn’t know an answer, she strives to find the answer for her clients. Her philosophy is “we can accomplish so much more together than we can alone.”
