Best Friends Vet Clinic in Albertville Minnesota Provides Great Care!

Real Estate Agent with Sabinske & Associates, Inc. (Albertville, St. Michael)

I recently had an experience with Ron’s dog, Ranger, that brought home how important it is to have compassionate and knowledgeable veterinarians in the area. 


Those of you who read Ron’s blog posts know that his Ranger had passed on, but what you don’t know, and he is still not quite ready to talk about was Ranger’s last hours. 


Ranger likely had a stroke, according to Dr. Lisa Sell, the owner and at present the only veterinarian on staff of Best Friends Vet Clinic in Albertville Minnesota. 


And, that might be the only comfort Ron has….that Ranger was not actually suffering at the end, but it didn’t make his last trip in the van any easier for any of us. 


Between Dr. Sell, and, Julie Evenson, Ranger’s last few minutes on this plane were as comfortable as they could make them. 


Dr. Sell and Julie were familiar to Ron since they had both been at another clinic in nearby St. Michael. 


There was an upside to the story, we both were acquainted with the staff and the new clinic is well-situated and a great improvement in facilities over the previous clinic. 


The staff are professional, extremely helpful and kind and bring knowledge and empathy to any situation involving your pet. 


When you need a physical for the pooch or care for kitty, medications for your rabbit or any other pet, you really should see what a great modern clinic Albertville is home to. 


I would advise a visit just to see the clinic.  And, then when you need services, you will already have a great idea of what Best Friends Vet Clinic has to offer. 
















Here is the philosophy of the Clinic from their website:


"At BestFriends Veterinary Clinic, we believe in fostering strong relationships with our clients while practicing high quality medicine and providing excellent client education. We strive to provide the best care that suits each situation. It is our responsibility to advise our clients and provide them with the best information possible to help them make decisions about the care of their pets. It is also our responsibility to recognize that the course of that care is ultimately the client’s decision, and to understand that every situation is unique and limitations may exist which are beyond our perception. Our clients will be treated with compassion and understanding, and we will dedicate ourselves to our relationships with them."



Check out their website, it has pictures of the exam rooms and some of the great equipment that they have to make your pet’s visit calm and stress-free.   I believe that their philosophy makes them the easy choice to handle both you and your pet. 


You might also remember Ron's blog post about Buck, the K-9 officer who recently had an accident and was going to be able to recover.  Dr. Sell and her staff were the ones to help both Buck and his officer, Deputy Sheriff Rob Mossmun.  It isn't easy to make these decisions, but it does help to have staff you can help you through the toughest of decisions to make for your loving pet or comrade.

Thank you to all the staff at Best Friends Vet Clinic.  You are the best!

Suzanne, What a nice post about Ron's loving companion Ranger and the Vet that worked with them.  After reading Ron's post that Ranger had passed away I called Dixie over and took time out for a little one on one time with my favorite four legged pal.

I too didn't speak to anyone for a month after my precious Lady died. I still miss her.  Ron is lucky to have a great vet nearby.

We just had to put my Chaco down a few months ago. I know how important it is to have a vet and staff you can trust and that you know care about you. We had just switched local vets for this reason. Our task wasn't easy, but the vet reassured us we were doing the right thing.

Thank you, Suzanne, for writing this post.   They did the best they could to make him as comfortable as possible, and they were great at explaining his health situation and making me feel that the decision was right and the time had come.

You have all been so supportive of Ron and Ranger.  Thank you.  Even Kerrie, Nikesh and AR had a hand in this.  I wish that my other friend had had the support of this clinic for her kitty in her final hours.  I know that everyone here who is a pet owner has had experience with this final separation that is so difficult for all of us.  And, what a wonderful place we have here to share our experiences with our pets, our vets and our memories.

 Any time a pet dies it is like losing a family member. I know how it feels and have empathy.
