Dr. Jeff Lundgren

Dr. Jeff Lundgren, DVM


Most kids have no idea what they want to be when they’re six years old, however, this wasn’t the case for Dr. Jeff Lundgren. At that age, he was already bonding with his family pet and making future plans to become a veterinarian. Today, Dr. Jeff has fulfilled his dream and is a veterinarian at River Ridge Pet Clinic, where he’s able to work with animals and help them get healthy and improve the quality of their lives!

A native of Mound, Minnesota, Dr. Jeff attended the University of La Crosse, Wisconsin for his undergraduate degree. While there, he worked summers at a veterinary clinic. He would eventually get accepted into the University of Minnesota Veterinary School, and followed that up by landing his first job at Village Animal Hospital. His next stop would find him at River Ridge Pet Clinic, a place he’s called home for the past 10 years.

There are several aspects of being a veterinarian that Dr. Jeff enjoys, but nothing brings him more joy than helping sick or injured animals heal and live a better life. He also finds the internal medicine and surgery portions to be fascinating parts of the job.

Dr. Jeff and his wife, Jen, have two sons, Ryan and Connor, along with a golden retriever named Millie. In his free time, he enjoys attending his children’s sporting events, fishing and watching his favorite sports teams (Minnesota Vikings, Minnesota Twins and Minnesota Gophers) on TV. Lately, he’s also picked up a new passion/hobby – clay shooting!

“Until one has loved an animal, a part of one’s soul remains unawakened.”
