Committed to Care

Dr. Wickenheiser is from Moorhead, Minnesota, and went on to graduate from MN State University Moorhead with a B.S. in Biology and the University of Minnesota Veterinary School with a Doctor in Veterinary Medicine. She works as a small animal general practice veterinarian with a special interest in nontraditional pets (ferrets, rabbits, tortoises, snakes, guinea pigs, goats, llamas).


Dr. Christine has always known that she wanted to be a veterinarian and doesn't remember wanting to be something different. She has a sixth sense for seeing pain and illness in animals. Being a veterinarian defines who she is, and she loves it.


She especially enjoys the human connection. By personally getting to know her clients, she can help families through their pets' illnesses and the process of their pet's aging, then eventually helping them heal with end-of-life decisions.

Experienced - Empathetic - Knowledgeable

Exceptionally well-versed in comprehensive veterinarian care. Dr. Wickenheiser has a special interest in senior pet wellness, pain management, and nontraditional pets.  


Veterinary care is at an all-time high, and more pet owners are seeking answers to their pet care needs. The shortage of veterinarians, overcapacity of new pet owners, the sheer number of pet owners, and staffing issues are causing longer wait times to get your pet in for treatment and delaying care.

To take some pressure off the veterinary clinics, Dr. Christine has developed an online platform,,  intended to give ongoing professional advice and support, triage recommendations, wellness care, and product recommendations for dogs, cats, pocket pets, and non-poisonous reptiles. Ask Vet Christine is not intended to take away from your routine vet visits. Instead, it is designed to supplement and help provide answers to those after-hours and weekend questions that arise regarding your pet's health, wellness, and behavior. 

All pets have their personality and unique health history. Ask Vet Christine is like having a vet as your best friend, helping you navigate your pet's wellness with quality care.
