Welcome to the BPPH Blog!
Welcome to BPPH’s new website! We hope that you find it full of information about our pet hospital and pet health in general. We are very proud of the care that we provide and hope to continue to serve the northern metro for many years to come.
As an introduction, I am a 1996 graduate from the University of Minnesota’s College of Veterinary Medicine. I specialized in small animal practice during my final year of school, and for the following 13 months as an intern in small animal medicine and surgery at the Oradell Animal Hospital in Oradell, New Jersey. In my training and early career, I worked in four zoos and three emergency/specialty practices. However, I found that I truly enjoyed the variety of work in general practice coupled with the bond that forms after seeing pets and their families year after year, so I moved to general small animal practice (ie “the neighborhood vet”) in 1999. After seven years as an associate veterinarian at the Animal Wellness Center in Maple Grove, I purchased the Brooklyn Park Pet Hospital in 2006. When I bought the practice, I also inherited the most well-trained and dedicated staff I have ever worked with. And many of them are still here – some for over 20 years!
I recently moved myself and my brood of many kids and pets to Brooklyn Center and I am enjoying getting to know neighbors in the area. When I’m not working on the house or driving the kids around to soccer, swimming, Girl Scouts, etc., I am attempting to train my border collie puppy, participating in some form of exercise, or playing the drums.
Please enjoy the blog! Dr. Christopher or I hope to write every week, and our staff (and Douglas the Dobie) will fill in as well.
