Emergency Services

For many people, pets are like family members and we understand that it can be a scary and confusing time when trying to determine how to best help your pet in an emergency. During normal business hours, we are able to provide short or no-notice emergency services. If possible, please call ahead at 763-559-7387 to inform us of your expected arrival so that we can have appropriate staff and equipment ready to care for your pet. If the emergency occurs after hours or on the weekends, there are a number of emergency pet clinics in the area. See below for locations and contact information.

Some situations that may require emergency veterinary care include but are not limited to:

  • Pale gums
  • Rapid breathing, difficulty breathing
  • Weak or rapid pulse

Remember, if you think it’s an emergency, it’s an emergency to us. If you are unsure if your pet needs to be seen, it is better to be safe than sorry.
