Dr. Graham Engle

Owner and Veterinarian

He is a California native, grew up in Sacramento, and spent 7 years in Santa Barbara where he received his B.S. degree in kinesiology from Westmont College. Graham moved to Minnesota in 2005 and has developed a deep love for this state.  He married his wife Rachel in 2008 in Thailand where they spent the year traveling and teaching English. They share their home with two children, two dogs, and a cat who runs the whole show.

Dr. Engle’s professional interests include internal medicine, surgery, and dentistry, however he loves general practice and the opportunity it provides to engage in all aspects of medicine. He is especially passionate about building long lasting relationships with animals and their humans and providing compassionate care through all stages of a pet’s life. He loves the challenges and the rewards that the veterinary profession provides and enjoys going to work each day and the opportunity to make a difference.

Graham is an avid wild mushroom forager and loves the time spent in the forests hiking and camping and experiencing all Minnesota has to offer. He also enjoys sailing the lakes of Minnesota on the same boat that he learned to sail on when he was 10 years old. Sharing that experience with his children is truly special. Other interests include reading, live music concerts, Lake Superior agates, scuba diving, and attending whatever kid activity is going on during the season from hockey, baseball and dance.
