Kindness Animal Hospital - Our Doctors

Dr. Charlie Arntson

Dr. Charlie Arnston:

My name is Dr. Charlie Arntson. I am a 1968 graduate of the University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine. I spent the first several years practicing in Minnesota. In 1975-76 I was fortunate enough to spend time practicing in Africa. Upon my return, I continued my veterinary career in Minnesota until 1990 when I purchased Kindness Animal Hospital and moved to Chippewa Falls.

I am a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association, the Wisconsin Veterinary Medical Association and the Association of Avian Veterinarians.

I attend continuing education meetings on a regular basis. I also use the Veterinary Information Network frequently to consult on cases and keep up-to-date on new medicines and techinques for small animals and birds.

 In my spare time I like to go bicycling and sailing. I am a member of the Lake Wissota Yacht Club. My wife Mary and I have four grown children, several grandchildren and a toy poodle named Zoey. Our home is in Chippewa Falls.
