Winner: Animal Health Clinic

Location: 1441 S. University Dr., Fargo


What sets you apart from your competitors?

"First, our staff and their level of dedication to practice the best medicine for our patients," said practice manager Natalie Rick. "They are the most genuine, compassionate people I have ever met. Second would be our beautiful facility and the cutting-edge services that we offer. And finally, our clients. As an accredited practice, we hold ourselves to a high standard, and our clients are pet parents that also desire that level of veterinary care for their furry (or non-furry) family members.


What was your reaction to hearing the news that your clinic won?

"When I received the news that we won, I was overjoyed. I immediately thought of our staff and how much they deserve this, and was humbled by everyone that took the time to vote for us," Rick said.


What's one piece of advice you offer to new pet owners?

"Do your research on the breeds before you add a pet to your family. It is so important to make sure your new pet will fit well with your lifestyle and your budget. Check into pet insurance too," said Rick.
