VCA Cedar Animal Hospital

Christy Lee, DVM, Associate Veterinarian

DVM, Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine


Dr. Lee (formerly Dr. Prinz,) is from Inver Grove Heights, MN. She attended St. Olaf College where she studied pre-veterinary medicine and majored in music. She enjoyed veterinary school at Ross University, located on an island in the West Indies. Sanibel Island kept Christy busy for 1 year where she was an intern at the Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife (C.R.O.W.). She has been with VCA since the summer of 2007. Though her travels have taken her across the US and to many other countries, she finds herself happiest in Minnesota. During her free time she focuses on her husband, Derek, her musical studies, working out, and of course enjoys her cats Nala, Baby, Lily and O.J.! (One should never settle for a solo cat...)


Specialty Care

Sometimes sick or injured pets need the care of a veterinary medical specialist. When that happens, VCA specialty hospitals work closely with the general practitioner veterinarians who refer cases to us in order to provide seamless veterinary care to your pet. When your pet is facing any kind of serious illness or injury, our specialty referral hospitals will provide the compassionate and expert care your beloved pet needs.

Our goal is to make sure that when you and your pet are in need that you have access to board certified specialists who are up to date on the very latest developments in their field. In our state of the art hospitals, our specialists also have access to the most sophisticated diagnostic and treatment tools and techniques from ultrasonography and endoscopy to CAT scans and even MRI.
