Dr. Lacey Rutledge grew up here in the Twin Cities. She moved out west to attend undergraduate school at Willamette University in Oregon. From there she spent a few years in Colorado, where she met her husband while working together on a ranch. She returned to Minnesota to attend veterinary school at the University of Minnesota, and graduated in 2020. Caring for animals has been a lifelong passion, and Dr. Rutledge loves learning something new from every patient she meets. Away from work, you’ll find Dr. Rutledge hanging out with her husband and their two dogs, Cooper (Boxer mix) and Gus (Saint Bernard mix). She is happiest outside and loves hiking, horseback riding, camping, and relaxing with a good book!
