Educational Articles

Has your pet been diagnosed with a condition that you are unfamiliar with? Are you interested in learning more about how a particular drug works? Would you like more information or advice on behaviour, nutrition, or administering medications? We are always here to discuss these topics and more, but sometimes you may want to investigate or explore on your own, which is why we provide a collection of pet health information.

Considering the wide availability of information on the Internet, it can be difficult to differentiate between what’s trustworthy and what’s not. The Pet Health section of our website contains accurate and reliable information on a wide variety of topics. Feel free to search through our articles, educational programs, tips, and videos, and contact us with any questions you might have.

During your examination please feel free to ask for more information regarding the diagnosis and treatments that have been recommended by our veterinarians.  We frequently print you a copy of these articles in the office before you leave.  We want you to be as well informed as possible in making decisions about your pet’s health.  Getting that information from a credible source is critical.

Feel free to browse through our library of veterinary medical, dental, surgical and behavior topics.  The information often leads to questions about your own pet, so feel free to call at 320-258-3434.


Quickly find the article you need by using our easy-to-use search system.  Search by keyword or filter by species and topic.
