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.
The other night, I spent an hour or so weeding. I was not weeding my flower or vegetable garden; I was weeding my horse’s pasture—by hand. We had moved in about a month ago, and I had already planned out where I wanted to put fencing, how I wanted to divide my pastures, and what fencing I was installing. My horse was moving here the next weekend, and I still had a lot of work to do. There are many things to think about when converting an acreage into a safe home for your horse. I had already planned for many things, but until I moved in, I hadn’t had a chance to take one final step. I had to ensure my pastures were free of noxious weeds. After an extensive survey, I located three potential hazards: hoary allyssum, night shade, and maple trees.
Ahhh the lazy hazy crazy days of summer are here! And for us in Minnesota this year, it means A LOT of bugs. The wet warm weather has produced a cash crop year for the flying and crawly creatures that drive us all mad. So I’d like to take this opportunity to remind everyone about the types of bugs that drive us and our horses crazy.
The equine supplement choices can be overwhelming. There are so many choices. Supplements for joint pain, calming the anxious horse, hoof growth, shiny coat….it goes on and on and on. So how do you know what to choose?
