 Twin Cities Veterinary Clinic History

 Twin Cities Veterinary Clinic Building

Our clinic has provided veterinary medical services to the greater Kenai/Soldotna community for over 30 years. Twin Cities Veterinary Clinic was established in the the early 1980's by Dr. Steve Mersch, who started out in a rented office space just across street from where the clinic now resides. Since its inception the clinic has grown from a one doctor practice to an active 4+ doctor office. Dr. Steve worked diligently for over 20 years to establish a reputation for providing quality compassionate care to the residents and pets of this community.


Veterinary medicine seems to come naturally in the Mersch family and Dr. Steve was very likely influenced with his career choice by his father, his older brother, and his great uncle-- all of whom were veterinarians. It only seemed fitting when it came time for Dr. Steve to sell his practice, that he would "pass the reigns" to a 4th generation veterinarian also named Mersch--his niece Debbie.

Dr. Debbie Mersch-Delker and her husband Dr. Jim Delker purchased Twin Cities Veterinary Clinic from Dr. Steve in June of 2003. Having lived in Soldotna as a young girl, it seemed like fate that Dr. Debbie return to Soldotna when the opportunity to purchase her uncle's practice arose. Since taking over in 2003, Dr. Jim and Dr. Debbie have attempted to expand the practice offering new technologies while still maintaining individual compassionate care. With the help of their great staff, Dr. Jim and Dr. Debbie strive to continue the legacy of quality veterinary care set forth by Dr. Steve Mersch. The clinic has continued to grow and we had outgrown our original clinic  building. In August of 2019 we moved in to our brand new facility just across the parking lot and have appreciated the additional space while dealing with the covid pandemic.
