Dr. Zack Rieck
Unlike most veterinarians, Dr. Rieck (or Dr. Zack to many of his clients) felt the call to animal care later in life, after military service and a career in aviation maintenance. His ultimate career choice was largely influenced by his early exposure to animal science through his father, a wildlife biologist. He has fond childhood memories of being chased around the living room by a raccoon and petting a wild hawk.
He graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee majoring in Biology, and received his veterinary medicine degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2013. He sings in a local German choir and plays trumpet in a number of community bands and orchestras alongside his wife, Tristann, who owns a music store in Milwaukee.
Aside from music, Dr. Rieck's hobbies include candle making, woodworking, cooking, gardening and art.

I am a CVT (Certified Veterinary Technician) with the St Paul Team and I graduated from Madison Area Technical College in 2008. Currently my heart and home are shared with 4 cats - Kelly, Rassia, Orion and Turnip. I am proud of the work we do here at St Paul Vet, and I especially enjoy working with feline patients. From sweet kittens to cranky old grandcats who have been around long enough to know what they want and being examined isn't it.
I've always loved animals! For the past ten years, it has been my pleasure working in the veterinarian field of small animal medicine for St. Paul Veterinary Clinic. I love what I do & always look forward to tomorrow.
I've been fortunate to be able to use my past experience in business management to help assist in making sure St. Paul Veterinary Clinic has all the tools & resources necessary to provide the best veterinarian care available.
I have two beautiful Yorkshire terriers; Penny & Ellie. Their love is contagious!
I'm so proud to work with a team of professionals that are dedicated to providing our clients & their pets with the love & respect they deserve.
This career has given me so much satisfaction as I strive to achieve my goal of every animal being loved!
