Dr. Andi Nelson

Dr. Andi (Foster) Nelson became the owner of Edinburgh Pet Health Center in February of 2020. She started as an associate in January 2016 and over time knew she wanted to someday make this her permanent professional home.

A California native, she graduated from the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine in 2008. While in school, she discovered the rewarding opportunities in community service. She volunteered at Mercer Clinic, a free hospital in Sacramento for pets of the homeless. She was also an active member of Compassion Without Borders, a no-cost medical clinic located in Central America. After veterinary school, she continued to be part of the volunteer community by donating her time to the Spay Neuter Impact Program, a feral cat surgical service in the San Francisco Bay Area.

She is a member of the AVMA, MVMA and the American Association of Feline Practitioners. Dr. Andi also became Fear-Free Certified in 2023. While she loves working with her canine and feline patients alike, there is a special place in her heart for cats. She has developed a strong interest in feline internal medicine, preventative medicine, Fear-Free practices,  and client education.

In her spare time, Dr. Andi enjoys hiking, camping and gardening with her husband Brian. They live in St. Paul with their beloved rescue kitties - Sven, Buttie, Egbert and Moo.
