Meet Our Veterinary Team

Dr. Renee Hostetler

Dr. Renee graduated from the University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine in 2004.  For 7 years prior to receiving her veterinary degree she worked as a veterinary technician for a small animal emergency clinic and a small animal hospital in the twin cities.  Dr. Renee knew she wanted to become a veterinarian since she was in kindergarten and feels very blessed she followed her dream. She enjoys all aspects of the profession but especially enjoys the long lasting relationships that are created when helping a family care for their pet(s).  When she is not working she enjoys fishing, gardening and spending time with her husband and son.

Our Veterinary Technicians

We strive in providing you the best medical care for your pet and this starts by having a well trained veterinary team.  While some hospitals hire staff with no formal training and rely solely on on the job training, we only hire veterinary technicians (aka pet nurses) that have graduated from an accredited 2-year veterinary technology program.  After graduation the technicians can take an additional national certification examination to become certified.

So why wouldn't you want the best care for your pets and this means having formally trained and educated veterinary technicians caring your pets.

Our Kennel Assistants

Our kennel assistants are all pet lovers and enjoy caring for your pets when you are away.  Our kennel assistants are trained to monitor and detect for any signs of illness or concerns that may arise during their stay.  If problems arise during your pet's stay they will contact one of our highly trained veterinary team members to assess the situation and determine if additional care is required by a veterinarian.
