Here at Excelsior Animal Hospital our philosophy is simple: We pledge to give all our patients the highest quality medical and surgical care, treating each pet as if it were our own. We are your “partner in pet care,” and we’re happy to provide support and information enabling you to give your pet the best possible care at home, including proper nutrition, shelter, exercise and plenty of “T.L.C.”

Good communication between doctor and owner is a very important part of pet care, so we encourage you to ask us questions about the treatment we give your animal. We promise to give you the information you need to make well informed decisions regarding your pet’s health, and to set your mind at ease.

The Staff

  • Jennifer S.

    'Animals bring so much joy to their human companions, where would we be without them?'

     Jennifer has worked with animals for over a decade, but has always enjoyed them. She had fostered a dog and 3 cats, but ended up adopting the dog and one of the cats. Jennifer was born in Minnesota, but spent 10 years living in Arizona, Florida, and in Tehran, Iran. She's a mother of 3, the youngest is currently a junior at Drake University, majoring in actuarial science.

    She has 7 wonderful animals at home; a 15-year-old mini Aussie, a lab mix rescue from Red Lake Reservation, an Indian Pariah dog (InDog), rescued from life on the streets of India, 3 cats, and a chinchilla. I also enjoy watching the wildlife in this area, learning about native plants, and recently took a Phenology class with the U of MN. 

    'It is a very rewarding experience working at Excelsior Animal Hospital, and caring for the sweet pets that stay over the weekend!'
