I write this review in reflection of almost 50 years of service. Our family has had many animals over the years. We have never had anything but the best of care and concern for our pets and ourselves. I won't go to another vet clinic. There may be cheaper places, but the care and concern is unmatched. Thank you!

Got my cat a lion cut here and it’s just of an unforgivable quality for the 80 dollar price tag, his little boots are uneven in height. there are chunks of fur they outright missed. You’re better off taking your cat to an actual groomer, especially since other groomers charge about the same price and do a good job. Sorry I wanted to like it but they did bad

We have been customers for years here. Due to unexpected circumstances our dog had to stay there as in “holding facility”. Staff was really rude and not so helpful. Spoken to Heather multiple times and never got the sense there is any passion or care for the animals. I will never go back to this business. They don’t seem they care for pets, they care about bottom line $. Be aware!!

They are really good with my cats! And if you communicate you're running late, I'm always running late, They are understanding and accommodating yet still if they can be to get my cats in still. I appreciate that greatly with my hectic schedule and difficulty making it on time. They also schedule an appointment within a weeks time at the latest. Or I just get lucky. But I have heard other places taking much much longer. I recommend Pet Central Animal Hospital.

I had a really great experience bringing my bulldog in for a little emergency appointment. She was having a hard time walking & I didn’t know how I was going to get her in from my car to the clinic. Before I even had to ask, the fella behind the front desk offered help. He came out to my car & grabbed my 65 lb bulldog no problem and was so kind to her. Made my nerves go down a lot. ????

I’ve been taking my 2 dogs here for 4 years now and their staff is always great. They patiently listen to my questions and provide options. Like most vets they are busy but are flexible in scheduling. I’d recommend Pet Central to anyone!

They were so friendly, professional, and compassionate. They found a way to get my dog in for an emergency visit on short notice and got him on the road to recovery.

I brought my cat in to get treated for ringworm. I was given a cream to apply to the area and a (wrong size) cone. I was told to do this for 2 weeks. After the two weeks it only got worse and our other cat contracted it. When we brought them both in, we were given an oral medication to go along with the ointment, as well as a shampoo. The vet could not find the spot on our 2nd cat and made us find it. Despite it being over an inch wide. They also did not examine the cats fully and missed other spots. We bought our own woods lamp and found the other spots at home. It seemed like they did not care. It was $60 for the exam on each cat and the effort to help us was not there. We were told to do this new oral, topical, and shampoo treatment for another 2 weeks. It’s been almost a month and a half and things have gotten a little better but still not clearing up. We did our own research and found that most people recommend a sulfur lime dip for ringworm. This was not mentioned at all by the vet. Nor were other options on how to treat this. We did the sulfur dip last night and are ALREADY seeing faster results than we saw with the oral, topical, and shampoo treatment they gave us. If we had known about this, we could’ve cleared in up in 2 weeks rather than 10. I also waited an hour to get a simple tail shave on my cat that should’ve taken 10 minutes. Very dissatisfied and disappointed overall with our experience here.

Always give care and attention to our puppy. Even returned a call after hours when we were having a scare with our puppy. Pretty easy to get in even with everyone getting dogs last year.

They're a little pricey but we bring all our pups here and the feral cats when needed. They're usually really good about getting one of our pups in on an emergency basis. It costs quite a bit for an emergency drop off however, if they need to see the vet its a really good option.

So kind and helpful, walk you through all your options with no pressure at all. The prices are also extremely reasonable, definitely one of the more affordable options in Minneapolis. The staff are fantastic with pets and people, and make sure your pets are very well taken care of.
