In the Community

Como Park Animal Hospital has been a neighborhood veterinary hospital for over 30 years.  We work hard to be good neighbors and good members of the community at large.  Our patients now come to us from across MN, and parts of WI, IA, and SD.  

We have proudly provided veterinary care over the years to various service and police/security dogs, including the St. Paul K9 Unit, Maplewood K9 Unit, Stillwater Corrections, K9 dogs in training, and others.

In the past, Dr. Wetherill and others have lent their expertise to local zoos and wildlife organizations, as well as educational institutions who house and use animals for research, to insure the humane use and care of those animals.

Our doctors and staff enjoy promoting, supporting and assisting various community events, including the Humane Society Walk for Animals and the BART (Basic Animal Rescue Training) Duatholon.

Several of our staff donate their personal time and resources to foster animals in need, and our hospital occasionally hosts animals looking for homes.
