Everyone’s a winner: Cedar Pet Clinic pet show highlights Lake Elmo Days

LAKE ELMO — Cedar Pet Clinic Lake Elmo invites children to register for the fifth annual “Everybody Wins Children’s Pet Show” Saturday as part of the Lake Elmo Days community festival.

Clinic veterinarians award ribbons and photos in individual categories such as curliest tail, brightest eyes and sloppiest kisses. Every child and their pet receive an award.

“We love this event,” said Dr. John Baillie. “The whole staff comes out and we have a wonderful time with the children and their families. Everyone receives a ribbon and award, and we’ve had dogs, cats, pocket pets and birds in cages entered. It’s a highlight of our year.”

Children in kindergarten through sixth grade can enter with their pets of any kind, on leashes or in carriers. The event is free, but pre-registration is required by calling the clinic at 651 770-3250.

The pet show starts about 1 p.m. immediately after the festival Parade in Lake Elmo near the fire station. Call the clinic for more information, and visit www.cedarpetclinic.com.
