We’ve put our heart and soul into every inch of our clinic. We work hard to ensure that every single visit is met with smiling faces and a clean and calm environment.

Meet Our Principal Doctor
Jennifer Melling, DVM

During her decade-long career, Dr. Melling discovered a serious soft spot for geriatric patients. This compassionate doctor developed a special interest in ensuring these patients live happily in their golden years.

She’s a University of MN Veterinary School alum, but her love of animals goes back to her first job as a kennel assistant. Today, when she’s not building relationship with her patients, you can find her tending her garden and boating with her family.

Meet Our Team

Sarah Marx, DVM

Sarah Marx, DVM

Associate Doctor

Dr. Sarah Marx has over six years of experience in small animal veterinary medicine. She started her career as a veterinary assistant in her hometown of Milwaukee, Wisconsin (yes; this means she is a true cheese head Packer fan), before moving to Minnesota in 2008 to complete her Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine from the University of Minnesota. Since graduating in 2012, she has spent the past six years as a small animal veterinarian in Coon Rapids with a large interest in internal medicine and preventative care. Dr. Marx is known for her soft spot for the misunderstood aggressive animals and bully breeds. Her time away from the clinic is spent out on the lake with her husband, traveling and spending her free playing with her pets – Mylo (Pit Bull mix), Brodie (Pit Bull mix) and her two cats: Ty and Tess
Kaleigh Mercer, DVM

Kaleigh Mercer, DVM

Associate Doctor

Dr. Kaleigh Mercer grew up in a small town of central Illinois where her interest in veterinary medicine started early as her town was overpopulated with stray cats that she helped care for as well as her own pets. She went on to pursue her career at the University of Illinois, where she got her bachelor’s degree in Animal Sciences. She and her husband then moved so she could join the class of 2017 at University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine. Right away she knew she loved Minnesota and all the outdoor activities it had to offer, so she and her husband decided to make it their home. She began practicing as an associate doctor in Central Minnesota the Maple Lake/Kimball area and joined the WellHaven team in March 2019 to work closer to home. She loves making good and close relationships with her team members, clients, and patients. She has a special interest in ultrasound and physical rehab. She has two rescue dogs, Greg, a 2 year old foxhound mix, and Lars, a 7 month old Irish wolfhound/greyhound mix. Outside of work she enjoys spending time with her family and friends, camping, skiing, drawing, singing/karaoke, and catching up on her favorite tv shows.
