Your Pet Needs an Annual Check-Up Too

Our staff believes that a companion animal’s quality of life is just as important as her longevity. Although diagnosing and treating injuries and illness is a large part of what we do, we feel that regular preventive care is just as important. In fact, the prevention of disease is central to the way our veterinarians and technicians practice medicine. 

 It's important to remember that pets tend to hide their pain from their owners, which means that you may not have any outward indication that something is wrong. Often times, we diagnose a health issue at a wellness exam that comes as a complete surprise to the pet owner. If you don't already bring your pet in for an annual check-up, you may be surprised at what a difference it makes to adopt a proactive approach to healthcare.

We Collected 714 Pounds of Pet Food During Minnesota FoodShare Month

Thanks to the generosity of our wonderful clients and community, Cedar Pet Clinic Lake Elmo collected 714 pounds of food for all species of pets during Minnesota FoodShare Month in March. As you can see from the photos, we received large bags of dry food, canned food, treats, and much more. 

After accepting donations in our exam room for the whole month of March, we loaded up Dr. Baillie's truck and made a trip to our campaign partner, Valley Outreach in Stillwater. Valley Outreach maintains an on-site food shelf for families in the Stillwater School District. Your donations will help those facing financial challenges to continue caring for their beloved pets. Once again, we thank you.


Minnesota FoodShare Campaign Update


Less than two weeks left to participate in the Minnesota FoodShare March campaign.   This is our sixth year as a collection site for donations of pet food, which will be distributed through the Valley Outreach foodshelf.   Pet food of all types, for all species, are welcome;  after April 1, we will deliver it all for weigh-in.   Can you help us reach our goal of 1,000 pounds of pet food?    Drs. Plantz and Olson are shown here with a few of our donations,  and clinic kitty Moe likes to recline in the donation box.
