Laser Therapy and Surgical Laser

Cloquet Animal Hospital is one of the only clinics in the area offering laser surgery to our patients.  Laser surgery, combined with the affectionate care of our technicians and the expertise of our surgeons, can make your pet’s surgical visit a much better experience. 

Laser Therapy can help alleviate pain and inflammation, reduces swelling, stimulates nerve regeneration and cells involved in tissue repair.

Fear Free Veterinary Services

What is it, and how does my pet benefit?

We are part of a new initiative sweeping veterinary medicine designed to ease the stress, fear, and anxiety so many pets experience while at the veterinarian. Our Cloquet Animal Hospital team will assist in providing insight for how to get your pet here without fear, anxiety or stress, make the visit an enjoyable one for your pet, and offer tips for how you can incorporate Fear Free at home, too!

We’re glad you’re here!


We are so glad that you have chosen to visit us today. Cloquet Animal Hospital has been a pillar of animal care for Cloquet since the 1980’s! Dr. Jennifer Shepherd and her husband Paul purchased the practice from the Abelts in March 2007. The hospital continues to be a small animal hospital, dedicated mainly to the treatment of dogs and cats. Some staff members remain from when the Abelts ran the hospital but there are also some new faces. Our staff is very knowledgeable as well as very caring and understanding. They all share a love of animals and work well as a team.


What Our Clients Say….

They treated my poor guinea pig last week who had a fractured ankle and they were unbelievably kind and helpful. We are so thankful and he's going to be just fine. ❤️
