Minnie Red

Years in Practice: 7
Education: Animal Care and Control

Maintaining an almost zen-like calmness, Minnie Red is in the driver’s seat at Park Slope Veterinary Center. Minnie Red wears many hats as the practice manager, medical director, head technician and staff counselor. When the ladies at PSVC are having a bad day, Minnie is the glue that holds the staff together. This furry boy’s charm and ability to spread joy wherever he goes has earned him legions of fans throughout the neighborhood as well as on the internet. Minnie Red loves napping during the day and partying all night. His favorite thing in life are boxes of all shapes and sizes. He has a larger wardrobe than anyone on staff at PSVC and has a weekend home in South Slope.
