Dr. Conni Wehausen, DACVECC, has been a wonderful addition to AERC. I have worked with her on many mutual patients and have nothing but positive things to say. She is always available for consultation on any case whether I end up referring the patient to her or not. She is an excellent clinician and highly skilled veterinarian, but more importantly she is compassionate and treats our patients and their owners with respect. The feedback I have received from clients has been very positive and I will continue to refer my critical and highly complex cases to her.

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!"
