Even the vets dog can be naughty! Look what Dr. Rich’s dog Sophie did while home alone! Behavior modification may be in order; it’s great we have an awesome trainer, Jane Fenton, working with our clinic! If you would like your furry friend to join training class or our puppy class you can do so by sending Jane a message off of our website and fill out the form under training!

That’s A Lot of Dog!

Ladies Man









This handsome fellow was brought in to impound on 3-11-14. He is about as sweet as they come and has quickly won over all the ladies here at the clinic. He is young and not neutered. He had no collar or microchip. If you know who he belongs to or have interest in adopting if no owner is found, please call the clinic 507-645-4522




A Rat’s Tail…

DSCN2440 DSCN2434 DSCN2437

Cattail is a month old rat that had the skin stripped from the end of his tail (degloving injury). The tail bone in the stump prevents the skin from growing over the end and it stays a wound for months or years.  So we sedated him which allowed amputation of the tail bone further down so the skin can grow over. If he keeps the bandage on for a few days it will heal quick. he has youth on his side. Cattail is very tame and friendly, and for those of you that are skeptical, RATS MAKE GREAT PETS!

Check out this awesome before and after of our current impound dog! Cyndi at Canine Design was kind enough to groom him up on Wednesday in hopes of getting him adopted soon! Unfortunatly, today was his last day with us and no one claimed him or was able to adopt him, but he was picked up by Prairies Edge Humane Society and we are sure he will be adopted soon! Such a sweet and handsome boy!


So stressful…
