Dr. Noemi Plantz
Veterinarians - Team member since 2000
University of Wisconsin School of Veterinary Medicine, Madison, 2009. Dr. Plantz has been associated with Cedar Pet Clinic since 2000, when she started work in Animal Care at the south Minneapolis location. “I lived a block away from there, and got off the bus right by the clinic every day. One day I just stopped in to volunteer, and they were hiring. I cleaned kennels, held patients, and did feeding and cleaning for boarding animals.” Dr. Plantz decided on a veterinary career at a young age, when she spent a summer bottle-feeding a litter or orphaned kittens. “My first cat, Tiger, was one of those; I had him for 19 years.” Dr. Plantz speaks on veterinary careers and exotic species care to vet and pre-vet students at the University of Minnesota and University of Wisconsin-River Falls. She has a particular interest in veterinary dentistry. Her own dog is Reno, a black Lab mix, and a cat, "Lucie".
