The Only Locally-Owned Emergency and Specialty Hospital in Minnesota

Welcome to Animal Emergency & Referral Center of Minnesota

Locally-owned emergency and specialty hospital for pets in the state of Minnesota.

The Animal Emergency & Referral Center of Minnesota (AERC) was established over 30 years ago by a group of veterinarians who wanted to provide their clients with quality veterinary care during non-business hours. Today, we employ a wide variety of veterinarians, board-certified specialists, and health care team members, all on-hand for when your pet just isn't feeling like himself.

WE UNDERSTAND HOW YOU FEEL ABOUT YOUR PET.

Having a sick or injured pet is stressful. We understand. Every doctor and every staff member here is a pet owner. Trust us to keep you informed about the care your pet receives at our center and to pay special attention to your needs as well. We promise to treat you and your pet with kindness, dignity, and respect.

PROVIDING THE HIGHEST QUALITY MEDICINE.

In addition to providing good, old fashioned tender loving care, we’ve got your pet’s medical needs covered. Whether your pet has sustained traumatic injury, has a chronic illness, or is just not feeling well, we have the expertise and the technology for speedy diagnosis and quality care.

When you need an emergency veterinarian
we’ll be there for you.

The emergency medicine service is staffed by experienced emergency doctors 24/7/365. The emergency service was established almost four decades ago and is the cornerstone of the hospital in our service to the pet-owning community.

If you have an emergency with your pet, please call (651) 501-3766, or drive directly to one of our two locations.
