Certified Veterinary Technician

Cindy is a Certified Veterinary Technician that has been with our company since 2015. She lives in the south metro with her husband and 3 children. Her family owns and cares for many pets of all shapes and sizes, including fostering dogs for Minnesota Greyhound Rescue. She has been a certified technician since 1992, although some years were spent focusing on family care. She is very happy to be back working with all the animals and lovely people.


Veterinary Assistant

Cole graduated from Saint Olaf College with a bachelor’s degree in biology in 2016 and has been a veterinary assistant at Bush Lake Pet Hospital since February 2017. His favorite part of the job is developing genuine relationships with clients and their pets. Cole wants to attend the University of Minnesota to become a veterinarian and, someday, own his own veterinary practice. In his free time, Cole enjoys painting miniatures and playing ultimate frisbee and softball. He has a 10-year-old black lab named Toby who loves to curl up next to Cole and keep him company while he paints or join him on a jog around the neighborhood.
