Meet Our Veterinarians

Dr. Jason Nordaune

Dr. Jason discovered his love for animals at a young age. Growing up in western Minnesota, almost all of his childhood memories incorporated the outdoors and animals, both pets and wildlife alike. He attended the University of St. Thomas where his interests led him to study Biology. He decided to combine his lifelong love for animals and his love for science. Veterinary Medicine was the perfect combination. He graduated from Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine, and completed a clinical rotation at Oklahoma State University in 2013. He is an active member of the Minnesota Veterinary Medical Association (MVMA) and the American Veterinary Medical Association. In his spare time he continues to enjoy the outdoors by hunting, fishing and hiking. When doing any outdoor activity you can assume that his two dogs (a Lab/hound mix named Sammy and a German shepherd mix named Harmon Killebrew, Brew for short) are not far behind him. He also enjoys spending time with his wife, a fellow veterinarian, and their two small children.

Dr. Timothy Krienke

I first discovered my love of animals while growing up in Rothschild, Wisconsin from my mother who was known for rescuing and nurturing many furry creatures. After graduating with honors from the University of Minnesota in biology, I followed my life-long passion of caring for animals when I graduated from the College of Veterinary Medicine in 1985. I am an active member of the Minnesota Veterinary Medical Association (MVMA) and the American Veterinary Medical Association. I have also spent several terms serving on the boards at the MVMA, Animal Emergency Clinic, Veterinary Hospital Association, and the Humane Society, of which I served one term as President. I live in Shoreview enjoying a newly empty-nester lifestyle with my wife, 2 cats and dog. In my spare time I also enjoy golfing and spending time with my wife and three children.

Congratulations to Dr. Tim; He was elected President of the Minnesota Veterinary Medical Association in February 2017!
