We are a full service veterinary clinic dedicated to providing excellent health care for your pet. Our team of experienced and compassionate veterinarians will ensure that your pets receive the best possible treatment. We want to grow as an emergency hospital and we are dedicated to the health and well-being of our patients - as a compassionate veterinarian who develops our own unique approach to caring for pets in emergencies.
We are updating our wellness program to provide horses with the best possible care for their health and well-being, as well as a variety of other health options.
Our emergency services are on site 24 hours a day and our vets work to ensure that all animals receive high quality treatment. We are working to build and expand our partnership with the broader animal care community, including the Duluth Veterinary Medical Center (DVMC) and the Minnesota Department of Veterinary Medicine (MVDM). Our veterinarians are trained in veterinary medicine for four years and can provide a wide range of veterinary care for horses, dogs, cats and other animals. Dr. Ken Fries, the chief veterinarian of the DMDM, is an equine specialist and is committed to the long-term health and well-being of all our animals and their families.
If you are worried about your pet and should never be embarrassed to call a vet, you would be wrong to call us. Although we do not offer emergency medical care, we recommend that you trust a 24-hour clinic or animal hospital. In fact, all AAHA accredited hospitals are required to provide 24-hour access to emergency care in their facilities.
At Animal Allies Humane Society, we love and advocate for animals, train companion animals and caregivers, and understand that animals occasionally have problems that may seem overwhelming to some of you.
Many cities have 24-hour emergency room practices, but if you live in the Western metro area, Buffalo Equine vets are near you daily. Our proximity to Buffalo allows us to provide our customers with timely emergency care after work. During these hours we have access to a full service veterinary clinic in Buffalo, NY. Others operate in the evenings and weekends when our regular vet is free - service.
In veterinary medicine Dr. Steffes enjoys time with her two dogs and a Boxer named Petey. He lives in the clinic near Lake Nokomis and enjoys living with his wife, who spends time with their two cats Mabel and Darwin.
She loves to see the connection between humans and animals and to help pets live their best lives with people who love and care for them. It can identify rescue organisations and SAH services, as well as the number of pets it has supported in recent years.
Resources are available to you to try to help you if you are working with undesirable behaviors in your pet, and remember to always consult a veterinarian or professional trainer. This includes working with the Animal Allies, but also with local animal shelters, rescue organisations and SAH services.
You may also want a pet first aid kit that can be seen at Duluth Animal Hospital or at your local shelter or rescue organization. It is always a good idea to be ready in an emergency, and if the family pet practice is closed, you can still take care of your pet urgently. Before joining Dulles Animal Hospital, Dr. Higgins practiced in the emergency room and provided emergency and intensive care care in Minnesota and Wisconsin for more than 30 years.
He then received a Bachelor of Science in Biology from the University of Kennesaw and a PhD in Veterinary Medicine from University College London, where he completed an internship in the Department of Animal Health at the Veterinary Medical Center in London.
During his time at UMD, Dr. Schilling attended the College of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Minnesota. He graduated in 2008 with a Bachelor of Science in Animal Health and a Master of Veterinary Health Sciences from Minnesota State University.
His favourite memories from veterinary school include working in South African big game reserves, caring for animals such as lions, tigers, elephants, rhinos, leopards and elephants and learning how to rehabilitate wild waterfowl at the Wildlife Rehabilitation Center in MN. His visits abroad included trips to Tanzania on Christian veterinary missions and his first trip to South Korea. Next he went to Florida, where he completed his Master of Veterinary Medicine in Veterinary Health Sciences. He was able to translate that into a clinical setting and learn more as an exotic vet here in Southview.
