Important Announcement

Dear Valued Clients,

I hope you are all having a great summer and enjoying the nice weather and the great outdoors.

I’m writing to inform you that I have decided to retire this year on Nov 17, 2023. I feel sad about leaving the profession that has been so interesting and brought so many lovely relationships into my life. After the COVID pandemic and family health issues, I’m tired and need a break from my daily work routine.

I’m leaving you in the hands of the very caring and competent staff at the clinic that you all know. Dr. Liz is a compassionate, knowledgeable veterinarian and a skilled surgeon. I can’t think of anyone better to succeed me.

We are also continuing to look for another veterinarian to join our team who embodies our clinic values.

I wish you all health and happiness for yourselves and your furry friends.

Be well,
Dr. Ricci

Energy Healing by Dr. Ricci

This is a very special interview of our very own Dr. Ricci by Janet Roper for Blogtalk radio. Janet is a client who comes to the Belle Plaine Animal Hospital and is also an animal communicator. In this interview, she talks with Dr. Ricci about her interest in holistic veterinary medicine. In the last year, Dr. Ricci has been doing more with natural products, essential oils and Energy Medicine (Healing Touch/Reiki) with animals. In many cases, she has found these methods to be very complimentary to the conventional veterinary medicine she learned at the University of Minnesota.
