Our Mission at Minnehaha Animal Hospital is to ensure that each pet has a healthy and comfortable life, and that clients feel appreciated, supported and empowered to care for their pet. There are other clinics that strive for these goals, so why choose us?  We have been a privately-owned, non-corporate neighborhood veterinary clinic for over 35 years, in a charming south Minneapolis business corner just 2 blocks north of Minnehaha Creek. We have grown a lot in those years and that is what sets us apart as a leader in the veterinary field. We know pet parents are well-educated, curious people who want to be informed about their pet care options and have all their questions answered. We tailor your dog or cat health care recommendations to their specific needs, and our entire team is available to answer your questions and be involved in delivery of care.

~What Our Clients Say~

  • The first thing I noticed is that the entire staff truly loves animals. I have had my boy Denver in for Heartworm positive treatments early spring..summer 2016. Now he is battling Lymphoma. He is 3 1/2. The compassion and attention we receive every visit is amazing. All of the phone calls I've made have been returned in good time.. We have never felt rushed.. and any questions I have are answered in professional and caring words. I love everyone.. the receptionists..technicians..doctors. Thank you all for the patience and loving touch with my Denver.

  • I absolutely love Minnehaha Animal Hospital!

    When I adopted my cat when he was five months old, I asked the veterinary program director of my college if she could recommend anybody for his care. 
    She spoke highly of Minnehaha Animal Hospital… and that's where I've been taking my boy for the past 13 years.

    The level of caring, skill, and personableness is second to none. 
    They explain everything to me in very detailed, yet easy to understand terms. And they always show the utmost care and compassion for my cat.

    Cash, the clinic cat, even came out once to comfort my boy while he was having a particularly stressful time.

    Go here! 
    I recommend them highly.

  • You are all so amazing and really care about my animals. You are so helpful and I always feel like they are in good hands. I’m always confident walking out that my animals got the best recommendation possible. You make animal health understandable.

  • This past Friday we had to say goodbye to one of our cats. I can not say enough about how Minnehaha's staff helped ease our pain. They made a difficult time for us a loving send off. Yet today another great touch from Minnehaha, a lovely card signed by all with the actual imprint of our beloved pets paw ready for us to frame and hang on the wall.

    Client Survey Comments
  • “We’ve been taking our dog here for about 10 months now and are extremely happy with every experience.  Their pledge for a fear free appointment is no joke – my dog gets excited every time we pull into the parking lot.  Every employee we have interacted with has been very kind and helpful with any question or issue we have had.  Prices are very reasonable and I would recommend this place to anyone with a pet”

  • Anne wanted us to know that she appreciated how kind everyone was and she is excited to keep coming here going forward!

  • “I hadn’t been back to MAH since 2007 when my kitty Harley died – and MAH was wonderful then.  Fast forward 13 (!!) years and I am a new dog owner.  I tentatively returned to MAH, hoping they were still as great as I remembered them, and let me tell you they are!  Attentive, knowledgeable, warm.  So glad to have this wonderful team to call on in the care of my dear Indi!”

    M.G., Facebook review
  • Robin expressed how happy she is that she has a clinic like MAH to bring her pets to.  She said that “each time she calls she is never disappointed and we are always willing to do what is best for her and her pets.  She understands how difficult it must be for MAH during the COVID crisis and she is so thankful for us and knows how hard it is to find a business as trustworthy as MAH is.

    R.W, Phone conversation
  • “I have been bringing my animals to this clinic for over 10 years and have always had the best experiences, even through the passing of some of my beloved pets.  They take their time to explain procedures and always have love and compassion for my pets at every visit.  I highly recommend them.”
