Dayton South Veterinary Clinic

Dayton South Veterinary Clinic was founded by Dr. Aubrey Wyatt in the fall of 1977. The original practice was located on the corner of Stroop Road and Wilmington Pike in a small renovated gas station and car wash. In late 1994, Dr. Daniel Brauer purchased the practice from Dr. Wyatt. The summer of 2000, Dr. Brauer purchased a piece of land at 3200 Wilmington Pike and built the practice's current home.

Dr. Daniel Brauer is a 1991 graduate of  The Ohio State University's College of Veterinary Medicine. He did his undergraduate studies at Wright State University. Dr. Brauer is a first generation American in his family of German descent.  He grew up in Dayton and knew he wanted to become a veterinarian at a young age.  Dr. Brauer has a special interest in exotic and avian medicine and over 25 years of experience treating these unique species.  He has performed countless procedures and surgeries on all types of exotic & avian species.  He currently shares his home and farm with a Great Dane and 2 long haired miniature dachshunds.  Dr. Brauer also raises black angus beef cattle and has numerous chickens, who provide farm fresh eggs daily.  When not working, he spends most of his time on the farm caring for the animals as well as gardening and landscaping. He is a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association, Ohio Veterinary Medical Association, Miami Valley Veterinary Medical Association, and Association of Avian Veterinarians.
