Animal & Exotic Wellness Center is a full service veterinary center that provides medical services for a variety of animals--including chickens and ducks. The practice is run by Dr. Jina Andrews-Neiderer, DVM. It encompasses all modalities available for diagnosis and treatment, including traditional therapies like drugs or surgery and alternative therapies like supplements, herbs and acupuncture.
Dr. Andrews-Neiderer grew up in Spring Lake Park, Minnesota. She pursued her passion for animals at the University of Minnesota, majoring in Animal Science. She graduated from the University's College of Veterinary Medicine in 2003. Since then she has practiced in the northern suburbs of Minneapolis, taking special interest in Small Animal, Avian and Exotic medicine and surgery. She highly values education and keeps up to date on all the latest medical and surgical practices by attending annual conferences, as well as many Small Animal medical and surgical seminars.
Dr. Andrews-Neiderer soon found that conventional medicine did not have all the solutions. That is when her interests in alternative therapies developed. She educated herself in many different modalities, including herbs, flower remedies, homeopathic therapies, essential oils
and whole food supplements. During this period of enlightenment she discovered Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs. She decided to cultivate this interest further by attending and graduating from the International Veterinary Acupuncture Society in 2008. She now enjoys offering these services to the community.
