★★★★★ Our dogs normally go to a different animal clinic, but it was full on busy. Our aging dog (almost 17) had symptoms that we didn’t see as an emergency, yet we believed he needed to be seen quickly. They got him in the next day, quickly but thoroughly assessed his health, and gave us the unfortunately sad news in a direct, tactful, compassionate manner. Thank goodness for their help and care!Nancy D.Nancy D. ★★★★★ First time visitor to Arden Shoreview. The vet we saw was great! Will definately be back and plan on moving all of our dogs' care to ASAH.Scott G.Scott G. ★★★★★ Absolutely lovely staff! I took my 10 month old bichpoo puppy to fill out a last minute international travel certificate this morning and we had a wonderful experience. The tech and veterinarian were so kind and helpful in filling out all of his necessary paperwork for our upcoming trip and even communicated with my vet in Ohio to have all of his records transferred the same day. the staff were also incredibly gentle and kind to my puppy. A lovely little place, would highly recommend taking your pet here.Isabela Alvarez H.Isabela Alvarez H. ★★★★★ We love Arden Shoreview Animal Hospital. Jenny Mayaka is our vet and when our puppy was showing signs of limping, she determined that it was more than growing pains and we were able to get treatment for OCD, a problem in big dogs. He is now completely healed and a normal dog. We went (back) to Arden Shoreview after many years away using a different vet. When we were unable to get an appointment with our vet for a very sick previous dog, Arden Shoreview was there for us. They helped us through a very difficult time as we had to let go of that dog.Julie Q.Julie Q. ★★★★★ All of the vets and techs at Arden Shoreview Animal Hospital are caring and helpful. We've had wonderful experiences here over the past 13 years. The staff have helped us through some very hard days with dogs who were at the end of life.

We are thankful for this place and highly recommend it!Melody J.Melody J. ★★★★★ Everyone was very careful and loving to my sick kitty girl.

Our experience was extremely positive beginning with my call to your receptionist, being triaged by your vet techs and finally interacting with Dr. Westgard and Dr. Mayaka. Dr. Westgard saw my puppy and was very kind, patient, informative, and took her time to walk through medical options. Finally, I was not only shocked but delighted to receive a follow-up call from Dr. Mayaka. Working in healthcare, this is incredible service and the vets and staff at Arden Shoreview Hospital went above and beyond to demonstrate excellent care.

Arden Shoreview Animal Hospital calmed my anxiety and treated my pup with care and kindness. The nurses and dr were thorough and took as much time as needed to make sure I wan informed and comfortable. They did blood work and found what was causing my pup to be ill. They started us on a round of treatment right away. They gave me several samples of food and medication and packets of info on everything from housebreaking to vaccinations and everything in between. 5 stars! If you are looking for a veterinarian in the twin cities area, I would highly recommend Arden Shoreview Animal Hospital!Kristin M.Kristin M. ★★★★★ dog is always bursting with joy to go to the vetsAnthony D.Anthony D. ★★★★★ Finding great cat vets can be hard. I moved from Seattle and it was stressful on my girls. One of them needed an inhaler renewed and this place checked all the boxes. They were fast, efficient and kept it as stress free as they could. Communication was clear and on point. Dr. Mayaka was the best and the staff (from the appropriate social distance 👌) was what has helped me decide this is where we will come back to.Michele L.Michele L. ★★★★★ Arden Shoreview makes me feel like my pet is loved, and they always call him by name. They care for him & are happy to listen to any concerns I may have. Highly recommend this vet- all of the staff are just wonderful!Heidi VHeidi V ★★★★★ This vet clinic is amazing. Thorough, kind, responsive, and passionate about animals. My cats see Dr. Mickelson and she is incredible. She was able to suggest some changes in my pets care where other vets would simply say “it’s fine as is” in the past (for example, my cat is very overweight but vets always say the food I’m feeding is ok. Dr M took the time to look at the specific food in detail and caloric intake, and now we have a new weight management food plan that is proving to be so much better for my cat). I felt very heard as a pet owner and I felt that she truly cared about the well being of my pets. The front desk and phone lines always have very pleasant and helpful people working; the customer service is amazing! Prices were also the same as any clinic I’ve gone to in the past. Overall 11/10!Mary L.Mary L. ★★★★★ Amazing staff! Everyone was so friendly and informative. Our pup walked right in with no problems!Erin W.Erin W. ★★★★★ They provide very individualized care for my dog. He doesn't always see the same vet every visit but they take great notes so working with both of them whenever my schedule allows is very easy. All the staff are fun and friendly and have a passion for what they do!Abigail N.Abigail N. ★★★★★ The professionals at the Arden Shoreview Animal Hospital were sensitive and supportive during a tough decision we had to make with our beloved family pet. They have been good to work with through any and all health related challenges and decisions. I would highly recommend them to others.Tania D.Tania D. ★★★★★ Good service. Welcoming staff.Jean G.Jean G. ★★★★★ This was my first time visiting this veterinarian service, they did a great job explaining things, making sure I had all my questions answered, and even called to follow up the next day to make sure my dog was doing well after vaccinations. Great service!Kristi N.Kristi N. ★★★★★ They got me an appointment faster than any vet in the area, they were truly invested in my pets health and well-being and their service doesn’t break the bank. Would definitely recommendEmma B.Emma B. ★★★★★ I could not say enough wonderful things about the whole staff at Arden Shoreview Animal Hospital. When I initially brought in my 20 year old cat, they treated him with such care and provided me with a couple of options with how to treat his acute health concern. They even followed up a week later with a phone call to check in and see how he was doing. I had to put him down 2 months later when his overall health severely declined. They were so caring and made the process comfortable for him. Seriously could not have asked for a better experience.Dr. Jamie Blumentritt, PT, DPT, MS, C.Dr. Jamie Blumentritt, PT, DPT, MS, C. ★★★★★ Outstanding care and love for my dog Socks especially when euthanized. Love them!!Kathy I.Kathy I. ★★★★★ A Caring, friendly professional staff.lynette P.lynette P. ★★★★★ We have been taking our 3 cats and dog to Arden Shoreview Animal Hospital for the last 5+ years. We initially started there because it was close to home, but have come to love the way they approach veterinary medicine and are authentic in their passion for animal care. We recently brought our German Shepherd mix in for a foot wound. They helped us work through a plan that was right for us, then called us to ensure she was on the up and up. The doctors and staff are great. One time when we arrived to pick up our girl, they had her in the office with them. Just hanging out and getting spoiled. So glad to have them right in our backyard.Ashley P.Ashley P. ★★★★★ I love the communication during procedures and after. Our dog had a dental cleaning and they even sent home pictures before and after the cleaning. I loved this because you can see exactly what took place. It places so much more value on it.Amanda B.Amanda B. ★★★★★ I've been bringing my puppy to Arden Shoreview Animal Hospital for the past two months and have really liked them! They are timely, easy to get in, thorough, and very willing to answer all of my new dog mom questions! And you can tell they love my little guy like their own! Highly recommend!jessica G.jessica G. ★★★★★ The entire staff has provided a great experience for our cats and is. They were able to get to the bottom of an ear issue that out previous vet could not pin point. They have always been able to get us in promptly and are very professional. Highly recommend!Amber M.Amber M. ★★★★★ I took my dog for her first visit at this clinic. Everyone was very nice and very professional. The Vet, Dr. Mayaka was awesome! Due to social distancing, you wait in your car. My dog is very nervous and Dr. Mayaka called three different times with updates and info. She was very informative and gave prices for approval before they did anything. Our vet tech was awesome as well!! My cats will be next to get appointments. I’m very glad I found this clinic!Debi P.Debi P. ★★★★★ A kitten unexpectedly wondered into my life and with COVID-19 I could not find a reputable vet in Minneapolis who was taking new customers. I was luckily referred to Arden Shoreview Animal Hospital and I'm so thankful that they were able to take me as a new customer and check out my little guy. They were professional, very knowledgeable, and took the time to review all the details regarding care, food, vaccines, and etc. They truly cared about my pet, and were fantastic to work with. Overall, I was very impressed and will be going back for all future appointments. Would highly recommend to others!Marina D.Marina D. ★★★★★ ASAH is consistently a good experience.

All the staff are knowledgeable and caring, providing comprehensive veterinary services and thorough education and follow-up. Even after moving away from the area, I am continuing as a customer because I know I can count on them to do the best for my pets.Deb H.Deb H. ★★★★★ When your pet is having trouble, it can be a scary situation. These guys are professional and caring. They seem to really care about your pet and they see them more than just an animal. They see them as a family member. I live on the opposite side of the cities and I will still go to them with any problem my dogs have. They go the extra mile, every time. It is refreshing.Nick W.Nick W. ★★★★★ Awesome professional services. Very friendly.Hans K.Hans K. ★★★★★ We used to bring our pets here when I was a kid and I remembered my parents always liking the people that took care of them. We just switched to this clinic after some having some less than desirable experiences at a clinic in NE Minneapolis and are so happy that we did! They have a very knowledgeable staff and it’s clear that they care about our pets and us as well. If you live in NE Minneapolis, it’s well worth the few extra miles to know that your furry friends are in good hands!Jeff D.Jeff D. ★★★★★ Great,compassionateSusie BSusie B ★★★★★ Very kind and patient staff...our dogs love them!Nicole E.Nicole E. ★★★★★ Friendly with exceptional service!William F.William F. ★★★★★ Great staff.

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.
