Companion animals come in all shapes and sizes. We offer advice and treatment for animals ranging from dogs and cats to small mammals (such as guinea pigs, chinchillas, hedgehogs, rabbits, ferrets, mice, rats, hamsters, gerbils, and sugar gliders), reptiles, amphibians, and birds. In fact, if you've got a exotic pet, we're the only emergency clinics in Minnesota who have this much emergency experience with exotic animals. We understand the special needs of these special animals, and treat them with as much care, expertise, and attention to detail as we do with our canine and feline patients.
We've been providing emergency care to companion animals for over 30 years, and we're also a specialty referral center. Please see our Services page to view all of the different modalities we can provide.
Our patients enjoy TLC from our staff members in addition to the high quality medicine we provide. It's not uncommon for a cranky feline patient to receive a kiss on the top of his head from one of our veterinarians, or for a cuddly rottweiler to fall asleep while receiving a much-appreciated ear skritching session from a staff member.
As pet owners ourselves, we truly care about your pet, and treat each patient as if it were a member of our family.

At AERC, we recognize that the need for quality care doesn’t stop outside our walls. That’s why we want to provide our clients with tools and information that they can use both before and after their clinic visit.
