These folks are all-in whether you’re bringing a healthy pet for routine maintenance or are having to make the hard decisions regarding palliative care for your best fur-friend. It was hard for us to switch from our beloved Minneapolis vet when we relocated to GV, but I have only great things to say about their care from the people that greet you to the vets and techs that doctor. Dr. Reiman gave me a lot of her time and most- needed counsel when dealing with decisions about end-of-life care for our dog. It seemed above and beyond at the time, but I think they are just really good people with amazing people and pet skills.

I chose the Golden Valley Animal Hospital as they are one of the few that Vet Clinics in the area that accept exotic animals. I didn’t realize that having a hamster requires the expertise of someone who handles and treats exotic animals. They have 2 locations and both are pretty close for us. The staff and Doctors are very helpful and friendly. They provide Excellent care for all of their clients and patients. Just one of the reasons why I rated them as a 5 star Vet Clinic!

You took wonderful care of my Paws in her final moments of her 9th life.
It was a very peaceful passing.

The veterinarians and techs are professional, competent and very caring. I wouldn’t take my
dog to anyone else but this practice.

I recently adopted a kitten from the Humane Society at the end of July. I was able to call the Golden Valley Animal Hospital and setup a general exam very easily! They scheduled me a couple days after I called, and offered important information over the phone to help the registration and appointment go smoothly when I arrived. The receptionists were very nice, and found an open room for me to sit in with my kitten so he wouldn’t get overwhelmed up front. The rooms were spacious, and very clean considering how many animals visit during the day. I met with Dr. Heidi Blackburn, she has plenty of experience and knowledge with cats and dogs. Dr.Blackburn was very gentle when handling my kitten, and was easy to talk to about general question’s or concerns. She wasn’t short, and answered each question with detail in a way that seemed sincere as if it was her own animal. I would also like to mention, Dr.Blackburn discussed the costs for vaccines, medications, or surgeries before moving forward with your animal. Overall, I was there for about an hour and each employee I encountered was very helpful and wanted the best for each animal that came through the door! I’ll definitely be back!

New to St. Louis Park area & in need of a vet, I called Golden Valley Animal Hospital & they fit me in immediately as my Mini Australian Shepherd got very sick fast. Dr. Goldblatt & all the staff at clinic were wonderful & nursed my sweet Bella back to health. I was so worried about Bella wondering if I had chosen the right clinic & would she recover. Another lady at the clinic when I was bringing Bella in saw my concern & whispered to me : “That I was in good hands as all the vets here know there stuff!” Thank you Golden Valley Animal Hospital!

Wouldn’t take my cat anywhere else! I rescued my cat as a stray when she was just a month old. The staff were so friendly and helpful in answering any and all questions that I had – they were able to walk me through the process of how to best take care of her and assure me that we were taking all the necessary steps to ensure she was healthy. I would highly recommend GV Animal Hospital to anybody!

The staff at GV Animal Hospital are kind, caring, knowledgeable, gentle, and very compassionate. They really know their stuff and are always up front and honest regarding treatment plans and costs. I have always had very good experiences with them. They understand my pets needs and help me make the difficult decisions if needed. Take your pets here. You won’t be disappointed.

Laura Johnson, Verified Reviewer

I have had great experiences at this clinic for many years. My dog is now 14 years old due in part to the yearly exams he receives at the Golden Valley Animal Hospital. The doctors are very knowledgeable, kind, and gentle.

Ray Leaver, Verified Reviewer

Their staff is friendly and they are amazing with our dogs. I have had 4 different dogs as patients at golden valley animal hospital and i would never take them anywhere else for their care. Their 2 locations are both easy to get to and make scheduling appointments at the time you are looking for a breeze.

Adam Beckering, Verified Reviewer

They are absolutely wonderful! Every staff member I encountered here had a genuine caring and helpful demeanor. Doctor Goldblatt and Doctor Rothstein were patient with me and answered all of my questions-I had several. When I left messages both doctors personally called me back. I will be bringing all my pets here from now on.

We have been taking our six dogs to Golden Valley Animal Hospital for decades. They always do an excellent job of thoroughly checking for any issues and resolving our pet’s problems. A perfect example is our 15 year old Golden that you would think that he is only 8. their entire staff love your pets and take great care for them.

Larry Decker, Verified Reviewer

I would recommend this clinic to anyone. The doctors and staff consistently go
out of their way to go the extra mile!

This place is full of love and care – the vets and techs have been taking care of all my pets for 20+ years.
And they’re nice to me, too! Love ’em!

Cynthia Hechter, Verified Reviewer

Saved my cats life a few years ago after a really bad UTI, performed surgery when no one else could. He’s happy and healthy and there’s nothing I could do to thank Leslie and the staff at Greenbriar enough.

Sam Milstein, Verified Reviewer

We love Golden Valley Animal Hospital! We have a very anxious dog, and with the birth of our son, it only got worse. Rachel and Dr Reimann have helped us out tremendously with coming up with a plan and treatment options for our dog. We are always recognized when we go there, feel very welcome and completely taken care of.

Centerpoint Capital Management, Verified Reviewer

Great vets and staff who are responsive and caring. I’ve been taking my senior citizens, a 12 yr old Boston and 13 yr old Lab, there for several years now, and I think they do a great job overall.

Dipanjan Chatterjee, Verified Reviewer

I couldn’t be more impressed! I adopted my dog from the AHS in Golden Valley and brought him here for his first vet appointment. They patiently answered all my questions and concerns about my new dog. They are dedicated and passionate about providing you with the best care for your pet!

Emery Fall, Verified Reviewer

Love love Golden Valley Animal Hospital. I take my two dogs and three cats there and have had nothing but exceptional service and care. The team always goes above and beyond to help make sure my pets best interest is taken care of and help to answer any question I have.

Charlena Keane, Verified Reviewer

I’ve been taking my cats here for 10 years. The staff is so kind, from vets to vet tech. They really care about what is best for the animal and are realistic and talk about cost and different options in a down to earth, non assuming way. I trust them with my critters and you should, too!

Kristen Husby, Verified Reviewer

They have been very nice, helpful and concise when going in for big
issues and regular check ups.

Justin Zollar, Verified Reviewer

I love Golden Valley Annimal Hospital. Everyone I have met there is friendly and takes wonderful care of Millie, my cat. I am there often to have her claws clipped, physicals and have also boarded her several times. I started going here on the advice of a friend when I was staying with her, just north of downtown. I like them so much I continue to drive there after moving to Bloomington.

Anntoinette Gurvin, Verified Reviewer

Dr Blackburn and staff are excellent! Very good at explaining and directing help on common issues

Great vet for my dog and my sons too. Dr. Goldblatt is fantastic & the staff was
excellent to deal with. I highly recommend this vet..

Bruce Walonick, Verified Reviewer

I’ve been going here for years and have had overall great experiences. Thought the staff has always been great and very helpful. There was one veterinarian that I thought he was not great a couple years back (not descriptive, short, quick to leave the room, etc), but I found Dr. Blackburn and she has been amazing. I only go to her now. She’s very gentle with my animal. She’s always very descriptive about what’s she’s doing in the room, her recommendations for any follow-ups, and answers any questions I have. I definitely recommend her and them.

Stacie Metz, Verified Reviewer

I have been a client of GVAH for 12 years and think of EVERYONE there as Friends. They took wonderful care of my Rupert until he passed away last summer at the age of 12+. They now are responsible to care for my Chaz, presently an 18- month old (who is a handful). I wouldn’t even consider a different place to care for my pet…..

We brought our cat in twice due to an unexplained limp. The Vet and staff did a thorough exam and took x-rays on the second visit to determine the cause. The staff always follow up the next day via telephone to see how your pet is doing.

Mickie Weaver, Verified Reviewer

Golden Valley Animal Hospital has my trust and appreciation for more than 20 years of caring for

Excellent, consistent quality care has been provided for my three large Parrots, Shmuley/ Blue and Green Wing Macaw, Shivi/ Congo African Gray, and Rafi/ Double Yellow Headed Amazon!!

The Boys love the staff at Golden Valley, and each time I take them there for grooming or boarding, the Boys act like they are going to Birdie Camp for a holiday!!

We love golden valley animal hospital! They are amazing and knowledgeable!

Mary Kelly, Verified Reviewer

Honest staff who gives you the straight scoop! I took my 6 month old puppy here to get a red lump on his leg checked out. I took him to Banfield a week ago and they couldn’t even tell me what it even looked like. They wanted to do a biopsy and outsource the lab work, said the bump could be a number of things. I walked into Golden Valley and the wonderful vet looked at it immediately told me what it most likely is. I wanted to do the biopsy, just to have piece of mind. After 4 minutes, she comes back with the lab results. It was exactly what she had guessed. The pricing was half of what Banfield was going to charge me. No wonder the lobby is so busy, fantastic staff! Will be going here from now on.

Elizabeth Baldridge, Verified Reviewer

Great Vets, office personnel always recognizes me, pricing not bad….

Steve Kozy, Verified Reviewer

I LOVE this clinic. My dog, Zeus, has had many health problems in the year that I’ve had him and I can’t rave enough about the care he receives from every staff member we encounter. They always greet both of us cheerfully as soon as we walk in the door. They’re always willing to spend the extra time to answer all of my questions. They call to check on him after he’s been in for an appointment. I’ve never experienced such dedicated staff.

Dr. Reimann usually cares for Zeus and makes me feel like she takes care of him as if he were her own. He used to be terrified of the vet’s office, but they’ve doted on him so much that he’s calm and happy when he’s there.

Michelle Tengwall, Verified Reviewer

Dr. Reimann has taken exceptional care of our dog Buddy in all the years we’ve been coming to Golden Valley Animal Hospital. A couple of years ago, she located and identified a mast cell tumor, provided thorough information and options, and successfully removed it from a difficult spot on Buddy’s neck. The staff is always friendly and helpful, and knows our dog…when he wasn’t tolerating the “cone of shame” after surgery, we called and were allowed to stop by within an hour and get something else that worked better for us. We board here as well and have always been satisfied with the care.

Jessica and Brett Laabs, Verified Reviewer

They are outstanding – kind, caring, and knowledgeable.

Laurie Rosenwasser, Verified Reviewer

Elsa Crohn, Verified Reviewer

I bring my dog here for care and we have always had a great experience. I like the keurig in the waiting room and my dog loves the treats. Always on-time at a fair price with friendly staff. I drive past a few dozen veterinary offices to make it to this one.

Steven Biorn, Verified Reviewer

Great people. Very caring. Pricing is average.

Joe Beacom, Verified Reviewer

LOVE LOVE LOVE this place! I have 2 show Goldens and they primarily see Dr Reiman and she’s so great with them! They love her, and I love her she’s very knowledgeable but doesn’t ever talk down to u like I feel like alot of vets do. She also isn’t anti-raw diets for dogs which is hard to find in a vet!

I can always get in for an appointment within a reasonable amount of time, and the staff is great, both the 2 legged AND the 4 legged! I highly recommend this clinic to anyone!!! Did I mention im super picky about the care for my dogs?! Can’t say enough good things about this place.

Only con is Dr Reiman only works at this office certain days!

Anna Bjork, Verified Reviewer

Very kind and caring Doctors and Staff. We have had several Vets during our little Winston’s
