Meet our dedicated Staff!

At Otter Lake Animal Care Center, we pride ourselves on our knowledgeable, dedicated, compassionate, and hard working employees that are always willing to help in any way possible.

Dr. Wayne Scanlan, DVM

My name is Wayne Scanlan and my hometown is Williston, North Dakota. I graduated from the University of Minnesota DVM in 1975 and have been actively practicing since. I have three dogs whos names are Ursa (Boxer), Zora (Boxer) and our newest addition Zeus (French Bulldog). In addition to my dogs, I have Thoroughbred Race Horses that run both locally and nationally.  ​

I decided to become a Veterinarian as a young boy after watching Veterinarians working on our farm animals on our ranch in North Dakota. I came to Minnesota to go to the University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine.  While in college, I realized I much preferred working with people and their pets.  That led me to stay in the Twin Cities upon graduating in 1975. I have worked as a small animal Veterinarian in the White Bear Lake/Hugo area since getting my degree.

My interests include Orthopedic Surgery and working with breed rescue groups.  I reside in Hugo with my wife and our dogs.  My son, Tyler, is attending St. Cloud State working towards a degree in Psychology and Film Making.

I look forward to working with you closely to obtain your pets healthy life!
