Dr. Ernest Drager


“In loving memory, we carry on Dr. Drager’s legacy.”
Dr. Ernest Drager graduated from the University of Minnesota Veterinary College in 1983. He opened Bush Lake Pet Hospital in 1984 and France Avenue Pet Hospital in 2004. Dr. Drager was a member of the Minnesota Veterinary Medical Association and the Minnesota Veterinary Hospital Association. Dr. Drager served the Bloomington-Eden Prairie area for more than 32 years. Dr. Drager retired from Bush Lake Pet Hospital on February 15, 2022. Dr. Drager devoted his life to helping clients and their pets.

In Dr. Drager’s own words:

“I am very grateful for the confidence that you, my wonderful friends and clients, have placed in me. We have faced the highs and lows of pet ownership and care together. From the time that I started Bush Lake in 1984 and then opened France Avenue Pet Hospital in 2004, my job has been exciting, and satisfying, but never, never dull. I will take wonderful memories of the pets, owners, and friends that I have come to know over these many years. Again, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. “

Dr. Ernest Drager passed on April 8, 2022, and will be missed by all.
