It is with a heavy heart that we will be closing our Elko New Market office. Feb 22nd, 2019 will be our last day at that location.          We tried our very best to offer care at both facilities but ultimately it was just to difficult.  

Our Lonsdale, MN location is just 13 minutes Southwest  of Elko New Market.

  • Heartworm prevention should also be given. Make sure your dog or cat is adequately protected by a product with a wide margin of safety and also a broad range of control over not only heartworms, but also intestinal parasites.
  • Cases of pets ingesting their owners' medications are becoming more frequent. Keep pill supplies safe and all pills accounted for when opening medications to avoid poisoning your pets.
  • Rabies vaccination is important for all pets, even if they are kept mostly indoors. Skunks will come into backyards and porches, and bats are known to enter houses: both animals are frequent rabies carriers in Minnesota. By keeping your pet vaccinated you are helping to protect your family from this fatal disease.

At The Pet Stop Veterinary Clinic, we treat your pets like the valued family members they are.
