Looking for a vet

Recommended Posts

grizwald

I have just moved to the St Paul area by the State Fair and Como Park and would like to find Vet in the area for my Choclate Lab. Does anybody have any good recommendations in the area?

Thanks --

I have been to approximatley 10 vets in the last 5 years and have finally found one that I absolutely love, Stillwater Vet. I know its not right in your backyard but its even farther for me and to me its worth every mile. They have 3-4 young enthusiastic vets there that are familiar with hunting dogs and the needs that they have. Not once in my 20+ visits have they ever even put the dog on the table, they come down to the dog instead of making them more nervous than they already are. I can tell that they truely care about the animals and to me that makes all the difference.

Again, not right in your area but Dr. Fran Smith of Smith Veterinary Services in Burnsville (952.736.8278) is one of my top picks. She breeds, hunts and trials Labs and is very highly regarded nation wide on labs. She is on the board of OFA, is the states only small animal reproductive vet, and has written numerous papers on various subjects ranging from diseases to breeding. I use her for all my specialty veternary needs.

For my day to day needs I use Park Grove veterinary clinic in Cottage Grove (651.459.9663). Dr. Cedarstrom and Dr. Hill are also both Lab owners and do a wonderful job with them... They even saved one of my females and her last litter. I think you can't go wrong with either of these choices. Sorry I don't know of one closer for you...

Good Luck! Ken

Como Park Animal Hospital @ 1014 N Dale Street. Just North a couple of blocks from where the old Joe's use to be.
Real good with animals. Has good boarding if you need to leave the dog. Use to take the Reptiles there. Also, that is where the Ex-Girlfriend works.

I don't have a regular local vet to offer but wanted to pass on the U of Mn vet clinic number. They usually work under referral but are staffed 24 hrs a day and have emergency service if you would ever need. Good to keep on hand just in case. 612-625-1919 8-4:30 mon-fri, 612-625-9711 after hours emergency. They are on the U of Mn St. Paul campus immediately west of the fair grounds.

I second the Stillwater Vet as a place to go. Great at getting the job done and your pet healthy again. They also do some great OFA x-rays.

Dr. Fischer at Apache Animal hospital. Not too far from you. County Rd. D and Silver lake road in New Brighton. I was really impressed with her. Seemed really kind and caring. I moved two years ago and don't know if she's there or not.

      Hi, I’m looking for a fresh report for this weekend. Thanks in advance! Good Fishing!

      Is the water starting to recede on the lakes East of Orr? I heard it was really high on Myrtle. We're coming up to Black Duck in a week or so, just wondering if things are getting back more towards normal.

      I’ve fished sylvan heavily the last two years. Done very well. Many nice pike, bass, walleye, and bluegill. For pike trolling shadraps pretty much any where will get you all the 20”-25” pike you want. Plenty of dence cover all over for bass and that is the usual bass presentations. And for gills in the spring the channel between the two bays was VERY good this past spring went three days in a row and got 2 limits each time ( two angles in the boat) and relesed many many more.  Also the panfish limit on sylvan is 5 per person so be aware of that. I was out there 2 weeks ago and did ok. Again two limits of nice gills and a handful of pike but it took a lot of work to find them. I’m unsure of the walleye fishing out there but have heard it’s a good lake. Im not an expert on sylvan but know a little so hope this helps ya out. Good luck!

      Thanks Cliff. I am coming up for my week of paradise tomorrow as well.

      The last two times on the river have been slow to say the least. Trolled Shipping channels, river channels, and all the flats. Crawler harnesses and crank baits. Anybody having any luck out there?

      If the water is that clear and you can see 17-20 feet down, the fish will be very spooky.  And if the sun is out, they will be looking for relief from the sun in the form of shade.  Night time might actually be a better option.

      Not terrible.  But they can be merciless, I will tell you.

      below the darn is a park there too if I remember right, Plus Garden City has a park by the river too I think..

      Good fishing in the Blue Earth river too. Also, a short drive to Rapidan can be productive.

      Welcome to the site @eg_gophers2124 I have never even seen the lake but these screen shots might help. Navionics Judging by the Lake Finder report, it’s a super clear lake; 17-20 foot clarity but with plenty of weeds. A couple shots of the weed report. Starting from scratch, I would head to the southwest area.  The southern basin has better looking structure too. You might do well simply working edges of the emergent weeds with spinnerbaits in low light and weedless frogs or spoons up in the weeds when it gets to be mid day.  Crawler under a slip bobber on the weed edges could do well also. It’s purely guessing on my part.  Hopefully someone with experience on the lake will chime in. Good luck!
