WE LOVE OUR COMMUNITY!
We have been a part of our community since 1975, and we strive to give back to our community through various outreach activities. Below are some of the ways we support our community, near and far.
WE LOVE GIVING BACK
SPONSOR WELLNESS CARE FOR OUR CAMBRIDGE CANINE OFFICERS
Wellness care is critical in helping keep our canine officers healthy and strong so they can provide continue to service and protect our community. East Central Veterinarians provides wellness care and heartworm, flea, and tick prevention to our canine officers.

As part of the Vasaloppet each year there is a skijoring event. Skijoring is a winter sport in which a person on skis is pulled by a dog in a skiing race. We are proud to support Vasaloppet as the Skijoring Veterinarian.
VETERINARIAN FOR CAMBRIDGE KENNEL CLUB DOG SHOW
Our Cambridge Minnesota Kennel Club organizes the Summer Solstice dog show which attracts amazing dogs from all over the United States and internationally to compete here in Cambridge. We are honored to be the show veterinarian and offer microchipping services and OFA patella examinations.
HOST CAMBRIDGE COMMUNITY EDUCATION CLASSES
We are passionate about inspiring the next generation of veterinarians and veterinary professionals. One way we do this is by partnering with Cambridge-Isanti Community Education to offer classes for grades 2-6.
We also offer a pet first aid class for pet owners through Cambridge-Isanti Community Education. Being trained in pet first aid allows pet parents to help care for their pet until they can get proper medical attention.
CAMBRIDGE-ISANTI & MORA SENIOR STUDENT SCHOLARSHIPS
We help support aspiring veterinary and animal science students though a senior scholarship with Mora education foundation and Cambridge-Isanti dollars for scholars.
Veterinary Technicians are an integral part of our team especially in lab, pharmacy, surgery, dentistry, and care of hospitalized patients. We offer Veterinary Technician Externship with AVMA accredited Veterinary Technology programs. These programs partner with us to allow the students to experience the “real” world and apply their skills and knowledge while being partnered with our skilled Certified Veterinary Technician team.
Veterinary assistants are key team members who work closely with our patients for outpatient appointments. We partner with NATVA Approved Veterinary Assistant programs through their externship programs.
We are fortunate to have the University of Minnesota’s College of Veterinary Medicine nearby. We partner with them to have senior veterinary students complete their clinic rotation at our clinic.
We enjoy having the opportunity to share veterinary medicine with students. Our team is invited into community classes to help explore this amazing profession.
AMERICAN VETERINARY MEDICAL ASSOCIATION (AVMA)
The AVMA is the voice of veterinary medicine to protect, promote and advance the needs of all veterinarians and the clients and pets they serve at the national level. They are especially important to help ensure national legislative actions does not negatively impact our patients. Supporting the AVMA through membership is important to East Central Veterinarians.
MINNESOTA VETERINARY MEDICAL ASSOCIATION (MVMA)
All of our doctors are members of our state veterinary medical association which is a critical organization to ensure quality care for pet all over Minnesota. We have veterinarians that also volunteer with MVMA through the Miracle of Birth at the State Fair and organizing Continuing Education opportunities for our profession so we can continue to provide the best care for your pet.
