Arden Shoreview Animal Hospital

Arden Shoreview Animal Hospital (ASAH) was founded in 1984 by Dr. Richard Routhe and is recognized as one of the best animal hospitals in the Twin Cities area. ASAH is a fully equipped animal hospital dedicated to delivering quality medical care to our animal patients, as well as quality service to our clients. Our motto, “The Best Animal Care by People Who Care” is the foundation on which this hospital was built. It has been the philosophy underlying our success in becoming one of the most highly respected, trusted, and recommended animal hospitals in the area. We know that choosing a veterinary hospital for your pet is one of the most important decisions that you make as a pet owner, so we have tried to design our website to help you do that. We encourage you to look through our website, where you can meet our staff, review our services, and check out what’s new/interesting. Feel free to take a virtual tour of our hospital, or better yet, give us a call to schedule a time to come in and check us out for yourself. We know that you will see why we have been consistently voted, The Best Place for Pet Care in the north suburban area!

Our Services

We understand that a pet is part of the family. Our goal is to provide each one with a long, healthy and happy life. The day your pet enters our hospital it becomes part of our family too. From new puppy and kittens to graying seniors, we are there every step of the way. Our comprehensive suite of veterinary services ensures that every aspect of their well-being is given the excellent care they deserve.

If you are worried about coming in for your appointment, re-check or prescription refill, consider using our online telemedicine/telehealth solution: Airvet. Through the Airvet app, you can connect via your cell phone or iPad with our veterinarians to have a virtual appointment from the comfort of your home. We will be able to answer questions and work with you to determine if your questions and pet’s condition can be addressed through a chat or if it would be better taken care of in person.

Our Clients Are Our Fans

and they know how to cheer us on!

Understood my concerns. Extremely thorough in explanation of issue and remedies. Everyone in the office took care to make sure I knew step by step the care my dog was receiving- the very best of care!

Patty Rushman

We had been going to another vet but after they put our cat down it was hard to go back due to the memories involved. From a recommendation from a friend we gave you a try and my only regret was that we wish we had found this place earlier!

Renee Odmark

It was not just the vet that was kind and gracious, it was vet tech, and the front receptionist. Everything about this office made you feel comfortable with your pet.

Client Testimonial

The doctor took time to listen to all of my thoughts/ concerns, approached the issue systematically, explained everything he was doing and how he came to the diagnosis and treatment plan he gave me. He followed up to see how treatment was going.

Tania Dreon

Love the friendliness of the staff and always feel at ease when my babies are there for their check ups.

Kristin King

The staff is so friendly and thoughtful, especially to my dogs. They do what they can to make them comfortable at a place that always makes them nervous, and it means a lot to me to see my dogs be treated well.
