Emily Houge
Associate Veterinarian

Dr. Emily Houge grew up in central Iowa where she attended Iowa State University and earned her bachelor's degree in animal science in 2009. She earned her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine at Iowa State University in 2013. Dr. Houge graduated at the top of her class and was inducted into Gamma Sigma Delta and Phi honor societies because of her academic achievements. Unlike most students who enter veterinary medicine, Dr. Houge chose the profession because she has an equal love of both animals and people. After graduation, Dr. Houge practiced in La Crosse for several years before making the upward move to Minnesota in 2017.

Dr. Houge enjoys all aspects of veterinary medicine but especially loves bonding with her clients and patients. Special interests include soft tissue and orthopedic surgery, internal medicine, dermatology, behavior and alternative therapies. Dr. Houge is a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association, the Wisconsin Veterinary Medical Association and the Coulee Region Veterinary Medical Association. In her free time she enjoys traveling, cooking, reading and being active inside and out of doors. She volunteers her time and experience at the Coulee Region Humane Society.
