Learn More About ZimmVet

ZimmVet has been part of the fabric of the Zimmerman, Minnesota, community since 1993. First established by Tony Damer, DVM, the clinic was founded on the tradition of first-class service. It is now the longest standing veterinary clinic in Zimmerman.

Upon Dr. Damer’s retirement, Dr. Krenz purchased the business in 2008. She and her experienced staff have continued the tradition of providing the highest standard of care with the latest in veterinary medicine.
