Weitz Equine Veterinary Services is a full-service ambulatory equine practice. Our goal is to provide high-quality and compassionate veterinary care to all of our patients. Dr. Paul Weitz started the veterinary practice in Minnesota in June 2002. Since then it has steadily grown due to the large number of caring horse owners in the community. The practice welcomed Dr. Melissa Johnson in 2007. Dr. Eva Reinicke joined the practice in June 2017. Dr. Mary Huerter joined the practice the spring of 2018. Thank you for taking the time to read about our veterinary practice and the services we offer. Please also check out our Facebook page for ongoing equine related information!
We have been seeing a lot of corneal injuries or ulcers recently. These scratches to the surface of the eye can be very serious and hard to treat when not acted upon swiftly. Please read on for some very important information about corneal ulcers in horses.

We've been using Weitz for the last 5 years, and they're top notch every time we call them. Can't express how much we appreciate all they've done for our horses at Haven Acres! Thank you!
I love you all. All three of these great people have been out to my place to help with my horses and they all treated them with respect and were amazing. Very very nice people to have come in a time of need! They calm your babies right down and make you feel better to because you can see that they love their job!
Vets who are knowledgeable, compassionate, and "truly" care about their clients and their horses. Highly recommend, and very thankful for them.
It’s still cold outside here in Minnesota with over a foot of snow on the ground and more coming in the next week, but it’s not too early to start thinking about summer fly control on our farms.
It’s the time of year when we start to see newborn foals….the equine foaling season usually lasts from January 1 to late June. I thought this might be a good time to outline some guidelines for owners with expectant mares.
It’s the holiday time of year. That gets us all thinking about what we are thankful for and what we’d like to get for Christmas. At Weitz Equine we are so thankful for our amazing clients and patients. You and the way you care for your horses, help us love coming to work everyday (even when the weather is cold and snowy). Thank you for being the best horses and horse owners around.
In the spirit of the season, here is an equine veterinarian’s Christmas Wish List:
