★★★★★ I'm very happy to have my dog Lola getting her care taken care of by WestgateJohn A.John A. ★★★★★ The service they provide is excellent! They answered all my questions, and the workers are awesome!Ba V.Ba V. ★★★★★ My new vetJohn A.John A. ★★★★★ Great People! Great Service!! Great Care!!!Robert P.Robert P. ★★★★★ We've been bringing our dog to Westgate for over 10 years and now that we have a "senior" dog, Dr. Norberg is the best vet for him. We just had a fantastic experience for our dog's 6 month check up. The techs and desk team members are always friendly and do a great job. I feel so good about how the rest of our 15 year old dog's life will be with Dr. Norberg's help & expertise.The S.The S. ★★★★★ I am so impressed with Westgate. I recently switched from a different vet and so glad I did. From the moment I called in with an emergency, the staff at Westgate expressed the highest level of care, concern and empathy. There’s nothing like a vet calling you on her day off (a Saturday no less!) to talk about x-ray results and a treatment plan. It’s the best feeling knowing that your pets care team is hyper motivated to find the “answers” and the best care plan for your pet. Is it more expensive than other clinics? Yes. Is it worth it? Absolutely yes.Megan B.Megan B. ★★★★★ We cannot say enough about how wonderful Westgate Pet Clinic has been to us. Everyone is so helpful and friendly. The personalized care is phenomenal. We have 2 pets with major health issues. Dr. Karlin, Dr. Hanson, and Dr. Hershey have gone above and beyond to help us. They really care. I wish all Doctors and Veterinarians were as thorough, friendly, and helpful as the Veterinarians at Westgate Pet Clinic.J B.J B. ★★★★★ They always take great care of him, can get us in for an appointment without super long waits, and everyone on staff is so friendly, my little guy loves coming in-Highly recommend!Frances L.Frances L. ★★★★★ I am so thankful for all the vets at Westgate. We have been taking our dogs here for years. The medical care is excellent and it is a REALLY well-run practice.Lynnell M.Lynnell M. ★★★★★ My daughters cat needed to be seen due to a limp. No other vet clinic was willing to work him in, but Westgate was more than willing! Very clean and organized. Kind, caring and concerned! I'll be coming back!brad D.brad D. ★★★★★ Lovin your pet like you doJames McQuen P.James McQuen P. ★★★★★ Dr. Perry truly cares for his patients and takes his time in examinations and educating pet owners—we’ve learned a lot about how to better care for our Bernese even after a couple visits (we recently switched to this vet). He has also personally responded to every call or email we’ve sent to Westgate with questions regarding our dog. It’s a bit of a drive for us and even with walkable locations in our neighborhood, we’ll continue to bring our dog to Westgate.Abbey Burtis P.Abbey Burtis P. ★★★★★ Even though my dog can be a little shy, she’s always excited to go to Westgate! Everyone there is so friendly.Lindsey T.Lindsey T. ★★★★★ Westgate pet clinic is always so kind to our anxious dog. The vets and the vet techs go the extra mile to make our dog feel as comfortable as he can. Thanks!!!LKT612LKT612 ★★★★★ Amazing care for my great dane mix and for my bunny!Alessandra F.Alessandra F. ★★★★★ Our Saint Bernard, Phyllis, loves Westgate. They are all so sweet and patient with her… especially the buckets of drool.Anna C.Anna C. ★★★★★ Very quick serviceTimothy R.Timothy R. ★★★★★ Best pet clinic in the twin cities. Can't go wrong. If you are looking for a vet this is the place to go!Fred H.Fred H. ★★★★★ This has to be the best vet clinic I’ve been to. The staff at the front desk were all kind. Dr. Mirodone and her tech were very welcoming. Everyone was very patient and understanding with my really anxious dog. Dr. Mirodone listened to my concerns about my dog and was so eager to help us. I highly recommend this clinic for anyone with nervous and anxious pets. Their prices are also very reasonable. I wish this clinic saw reptiles so I could bring all of my pets here 🙁Bri P.Bri P. ★★★★★ We love Dr. Perry, he is the best! He is gentle loving, does thorough exams and treats you and your pet with kindness. When I think of Westgate I compare it to the Mayo Clinic of the vet world. Drove all the way from out west to get the proper diagnoses for my dog.Stacy M.Stacy M. ★★★★★ At this office Dr.Brek Perry was 10x more than what you could ever hope for in a vet. We felt that he was extremely competent in everything we discussed and he was willing to acknowledge if he wasn’t sure on something and do research for us. He was kind and patient with our dog and also with us by taking his time to answer any and all of our questions in depth. We chose this office because of their ability to do a laparoscopic spay and gastropexy, and were so pleased with the results (minimal pain and incision size for our pup). We ended up having to also use Dr.Perry for the removal of a mast cell tumor that was directly on our 3 year old dogs muzzle. Not only did he get clean margins on the tumor (yay!!!), he also did doggy plastic surgeon level work! Her face is healing up so incredibly well. We wish so badly that he was a vet over here in Hawaii because we would be loyal clients for the rest of our lives. Beyond Dr.Perry, the entire staff was kind and very helpful (from the techs to the front desk staff). If you’re looking for a vet in the area, you’ve lucked out and come across a top tier one.hannah bann T.hannah bann T. ★★★★★ It's so hard to find a good rabbit vet and Dr. Perry is the best!Angi S.Angi S. ★★★★★ We trusted Westgate with the care of our dogs and cats for over 15 years. Their level of professionalism and veterinary knowledge is amazing and higher than any of the other vet clinics we have visited in the past.Their costs are a bit higher than some other vets we have been to, but the high level of expertise, care, and support we get is well worth the reasonable price.Brian K.Brian K. ★★★★★ I felt very seen & heard. The vet didn't know what is going on with my cat but I felt very confident that she believed the symptoms I was reporting and had ruled out all possible common conditions.I was referred to a specialist but in a non alarming way.Pine W.Pine W. ★★★★★ Very friendly staff who are looking out for your pet's health!Michael D.Michael D. ★★★★★ Great vets here. My cat disagrees. LOLJoyce N.Joyce N. ★★★★★ From the front desk to the techs to the doctors, Westgate is top notch. Dr. Matzek is wonderful to work with. She takes the time to listen to our concerns and we never feel rushed. I honestly think our cat, Mya, enjoys going to the vet!James K.James K. ★★★★★ Westgate has been a life-saver for my dog, who has a history of getting very anxious at appointments. They developed a plan where we would slowly desensitize her to the clinic and reward her for going there with tons of treats and positive attention. It has made a huge difference, and I'm very grateful they took the extra time with her. I also have received excellent care for her there.Heidi F.Heidi F. ★★★★★ Westgate is a great Veterinary clinic. We have been going there for years. They care about what the do.Ross M.Ross M. ★★★★★ We adopted two kitties during the pandemic and had a hard time finding a vet accepting new patients. Westgate was still taking new patients and we were able to get in within a couple of weeks for both kitties (we got one in March and one in May). One has had a lot of health issues and they've been great about getting her in for emergency appointments and trying to stay consistent with the same provider. Dr. Bury really cares about her patients and shares her knowledge on a wide variety of issues.Google asked me to update this, but I have no changes two years later. Westgate has been great.Lindsey Laine Siegfried de S.Lindsey Laine Siegfried de S. ★★★★★ Awesome clinic! I have 2 large, very anxious dogs and I can't say enough about how patient, kind & skilled the Vets, Techs and Front-office have been in taking care of us!Anne S.Anne S. ★★★★★ I had a great experience here at Westgate.My guinea pig was sick and Dr Reed was a great vet who was so gentle with my little girl, and gave her great care. The receptionist helped me schedule an appointment and was very kind. I definitely recommend this veterinarian.Erin DErin D ★★★★★ We love the care our pets receive here!Michelle N.Michelle N. ★★★★★ Fast. Friendly. So much expertise. And they love our dogs!Carol JCarol J ★★★★★ The lady that answered the phones was probably the most chipper, sweetest person in the world!! I think she was sitting at the cat station when I arrived? The vet was awesome, kind, and made my dog feel comfortable during the exam.Emily S.Emily S. ★★★★★ Great vet, I've been going here for years.Susan I.Susan I. ★★★★★ Easily the most knowledgeable, caring, kind, and compassionate veterinarians in Minneapolis! The doctors are so kind and they've taken such good care of all of our fur babies, we're so grateful to everyone at Westgate! ❤EiramEiram ★★★★★ Very caring doctors (love Dr Hageman) & nice staff.Richard W.Richard W. ★★★★★ I’ve been bringing my pets here for over 5 years. The staff is wonderful and the vets are great. Over the years, I’ve called with a few urgent needs and can usually get in same day. I’d personally recommend Dr. Karlin or Dr. Cohen, but all are great.Shane R.Shane R. ★★★★★ Dr. Hershey at Westgate has been taking care of our sweet pitbull who pinched a nerve in her back some time ago. She provides acupuncture treatment and it’s been helping Beauty’s mobility so much while her body heals! Compassionate, kind staff from the vet assistants and techs to all the docs. (Photo is of our dog with the acupuncture needles in.)Jenny F.Jenny F. ★★★★★ Best pet care!Michael M.Michael M. ★★★★★ Absolutely amazing staff and facility. It’s so clean, bright and welcoming. Have taken both of our dogs here since 2013 and wouldn’t even think about taking them somewhere else. The doctors are kind and so patient with my pets (and me!). I wish I could give it more than five stars.Ashley W.Ashley W. ★★★★★ Dr. Bury and Dr. Kamrath take excellent care of our two cats and puppy. Each pet has their own health challenges and they are always patient, caring and thorough.Rachel S.Rachel S. ★★★★★ I've been going to Westgate for quite some time and all the staff, from the front desk to the veterinarian, have nothing but passion about taking care of your pets. They give me peace of mind.Alice C.Alice C. ★★★★★ Dr. Melin did a fantastic job with my Saint Bernards laparoscopic spay and gastropexy. All of the Techs have been more than helpful with explaining everything in great detail and were very prompt in responding to my follow-up questions. I would absolutely recommend anyone to this clinic -especially for this type of surgery on a large breed dog as the recovery time seemed minimal compared to a traditional surgery.Kelsey HKelsey H ★★★★★ Love Westgate—only vet clinic we have gone to for 40+ years now. They may be more expensive, but totally worth it for the high level of care and caring they give their clients.Kimberly B.Kimberly B. ★★★★★ Very good staff, and a clean friendly environment, however you certainly pay for it.Seamus B.Seamus B. ★★★★★ Dr. Bury is an exceptional vet. She takes time with our pets and us, explaining everything and really looking into the problem. She also has a range of abilities, she is wonderful with our dogs (and they aren't always easy), she has done acupuncture on one with hip dysplasia and it really helped and she recommended a dermatologist for our daughter's cat who finally got results when others told us to put Brandi down. We have been with her for many years and 3 clinics and it is worth the drive to have her care for our animals.Jeannine B.Jeannine B. ★★★★★ We like the doctors that kept us informed and answered all of questions. The second doctor in particular was great. Both were very patient and caring.The only small issue was payment. The second payment was automatically charged to the same credit card from the previous day, no one asked if the same card should used. We wanted to use the same card, but rather odd no one asked. In addition, the amount was never communicated to us. We did not know the payment amount of the second day visit until the bill was emailed to us. Our main concern was JoJo and the quality of care visa vee the doctor; that was excellent.Cindy P.Cindy P. ★★★★★ Dr Karlin is the BEST! She truly is a wonderful veterinarian. I've been taking my Kirby, Mittens, and Leeloo to her for years and I can't see enough about the fantastic care she, and the entire staff at Westgate Pet Clinic, provide to me and my fur babies. You can Westgate Pet Clinic to give you the very best veterinary care out there.Alyssa M.Alyssa M. ★★★★★ We have been going to Westgate Pet Clinic for years and love it! We don’t live close but are more then willing to drive the 20 plus miles to have our pets cared for there. Everyone is so nice, and they greet you promptly. From the moment you enter their lobby you can see the care and thought they have put into taking care of your pet. One check-in side for cats and another for dogs is just the beginning. They are well stocked in food, toys, dog grooming supplies, gentle leaders, dog collars and leashes. The staff, vet technicians and doctors treat your pet like their own and make them happy to be there. My dogs get so excited when they see where we are going they start jumping around and wagging their tails. The doctors have always been honest with us and never try to sell us something that doesn’t provide the care the pet needs. We trust their opinion. We have had two sick dogs and through the end of their life they help us make the best decisions for our pets. When it was time to say goodbye to our dogs we were fortunate to be able to be with them in a special room they have. So thankful for the care they give our pets!Melissa M.Melissa M. ★★★★★ Dr. Hershey is the best. After recently moving to MN and leaving behind our old vet I was skeptical I'd find the same quality and care in another city. Just sensational from start to finish. Highly recommendedGreg G.Greg G. ★★★★★ Everyone at Westgate is fantastic. Dr. Hershey is the nicest vet I've ever worked with. She and the staff are willing to deal with my demon cat and still welcome me back.Eric M.Eric M. ★★★★★ Dr. Mirodone is the best veterinarian our dogs have ever seen and have been taking them to Westgate for years. Well run, clean clinicTravis N.Travis N. ★★★★☆ Very professionalTony K.Tony K. ★★★★☆ I moved to Westgate after my last vet could not see me during an emergency with our cat. Westgate has been very friendly and we have found a couple vets we are comfortable with. I have had a couple minor cat health issues pop up where Westgate has basically slammed the door in my faces. In short, they will see with an appointment but don’t expect them to open the door in your time of need.Ian S.Ian S.js_loader
