Jean Hollenstein, D.V.M, Owner.

 Dr. Hollenstein


Dr. Jean Hollenstein (owner) graduated from U of MN CVM in 1988.  She has practiced small animal medicine and surgery in central Minnesota since then.  She has studied holistic therapies extensively and finds the integration of Western Medicine with other modalities such as Traditional Chinese Medicine, Homeopathy, and Osteopathy (manual therapy) to be the greatest benefit to her patients.  Her hobbies include reading, music, theater, and hopefully someday, gardening!
