Dr. Raeyna Modrow-Longtin
Dr. Longtin grew up just outside Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Her family spent summers at their cabin near Brainerd, and she always wanted to live in Minnesota. She earned a Bachelor of Arts degree (and her husband, Shane) at Illinois Wesleyan University and graduated from the University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine in 1996. She started a house-call practice where she worked for 12 years.
Dr. Longtin is certified in Fear Free handling and is passionate about making your pet’s veterinary experience as low stress as possible. She loves being a part of the bond between people and their pets and enjoys mentoring and encouraging team members.
In addition to her husband, Dr. Longtin has two adult children, Jordan and Michael. Her ’empty nest’ is still fairly full, with her standard poodle, Percy; golden retriever, Bubbles; a small herd of cats, and a cowardly ball python named Rodney Dangernoodle. When she isn’t working, she enjoys a variety of crafts and tinkering with her vintage Volkswagen Beetle, Winifred.
