    Default Minneapolis/ St. Paul Area veterinarian to do OFA X-rays

    Anyone have a good recommendation for a vet that does the OFA x-rays in the Minneapolis-St. Paul, MN area without sedating the dog?

    Thanks,
    John

    Stillwater Veterinary Clinic, 2020 Curve Crest Blvd., Stillwater , MN 55082 ..(651-439 -3200) e-mail stillwatervet@questoffice.net....I have been using them since the 1980s when Dr Yoho (retired) was there. When I travel west they are one of my to-go-to vets. Dr. Winter is excellent and is very aware of field trial/hunt test dogs.

    I also use Stillwater, they are the best in the area. Dr. Winter is my choice when we take dogs in for OFA also.

    Agreed. Fran Smith at Smith Veterinary Hospital in Burnsville. They do multiple OFA rads daily. Dr. Smith is not only on the board, but she is the president of OFA, and needless to say, she is fantastic. She also serves on the board of the Labrador retriever club. I got the pleasure of working with her for 6 weeks this past summer. She is also a board certified reproduction specialist who has been breeding labradors since 1971. She is one of us and understands our game. She shows many of her labradors in the show ring and not only runs her dogs in hunt tests, but is a licensed AKC judge. I would trust her with any of my dogs; she is fantastic and highly recommended!

    The 2 already offered are good ones, a 3rd would be Inver Grove Heights Animal Hospital, Dr Winsor

    Dr.Don Rice is retired! Dr. Ray Anne Rice is there! But as was previously stated Stillwater with Dr Winter doing the majority of the OFA work has been excellent.

    All mentioned are good and I have used Fran Dr Jim @ IGH and Stillwater.

    The guy that gets my business is Dr Joel Enochs @ Valleyview vet in St. Croix Falls WI. Digital X-ray and he's a retriever guy.
