East Iron Range- A local pet service is expanding. Iron Pine Veterinary Services started in August 2021 as a house-call small animal service for Eastern Iron Range residents. They have been waiting for their mobile clinic vehicle since then and it is finally here! With their new vehicle, they will be able to start providing basic surgeries and dentistry in addition to normal house calls. Iron Pine hopes to have the mobile clinic fully ready for November but has started to roll out some appointments.
