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.
Our Board-Certified Surgeons, Dr. Nate Rose, DACVS, and Dr. Brian Rose, DACVS, run our in-house surgery department. They provide Board-Certified surgical expertise for complex emergency and elective procedures including orthopedic, soft tissue, and neurosurgery.

Here is a touching testimonial from one of our clients in Oakdale whose pet, Louie, had surgery at our facility!
"We brought our Louie in maybe two years ago. We learned he had crystals and his ureter was blocked. Your wonderful people operated, and we now have our beautiful tuxedo boy with us yet. I don't remember doctors' and nurses' names, but they were all wonderful. My husband says if pedigreed cats are expensive, then Louie is definitely pedigreed! But he is alive and happy and your people saved his life.
We rescued him from Woodbury Humane Society, brought him home only to learn he was very ill with a cold. That was rescue number one! Our vet brought him through that, rescue number two. Then you folks rescued him the third time. Think he had better start counting! We thank the Lord for all of you every time we drive around the curve on Helmo Avenue. God's blessings to you all!"
