Dr. Erika Olson

Veterinarians - Team member since 2013

University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine, 2004.   Dr. Olson’s first job after graduation from vet school was for Dr. Baillie at Cedar Pet Clinic.   “I’m one of those nerdy people who always wanted to be a vet.  What I love is that you have the opportunity to use science and work with people; fun things like puppy exams,  the surgery, the variety in animals in a practice that includes so many exotics.  There are always new developments , new techniques;  the field is constantly changing and updating itself, and we have the challenge of staying up to date with it.”     Dr. Olson has had guinea pigs – “I love pigs”.  Her current pets are a Yorkie-poodle cross “Angus”  and a Bichon Frise-poodle cross “Echo”.  “We went for one dog and came home with two”, she laughs.
