Here is a testimonial about Dr. Shadwick from a client here in Oakdale,
"I am so impressed with Animal Emergency & Referral Center of Minnesota. What a wonderful establishment! I brought my dog, Pumpkin, to see Dr Steve Shadwick in Internal Medicine. He was so very kind and took time from his busy schedule to explain to me all my options with Pumpkin. He was with us for 20 minutes!
When I returned at the end of the day, Dr Shadwick personally brought Pumpkin to me, reassured me, and went over her treatment plan with me. Very warm and welcoming. I have absolutely no hesitancy in recommending AERC to anyone. Thank you all so much!"
