He is typically located at our sister hospital (Hartford Animal Clinic) in Ponca City.

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.
Originally from Caldwell, Kansas, Hayley’s agricultural background inspired her to become a veterinarian so that she could help farmers and pet owners alike. Dr. Wyckoff said, “Having been raised in a small town, Dr. Bruey understands & eagerly meets the diversified needs of a rural community with great competence & genuine interest.”
In addition to receiving her doctorate at a university different from the other doctors, Dr. Bruey has worked in a variety of clinics throughout Missouri & Kansas. According to Dr. Schultz this will be a great asset. “We welcome fresh ideas & new techniques. It helps us provide the highest quality veterinary care to our patients.”
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 Blackwell with her Australian Shepherd Maverick and cat Bru & eventually would like to raise cattle.
