★★★★★ Came for a ortho surg consult, so dealt with surgeon and clinic staff and Dr. Most of the staff was really nice and pet my pet and seemed really interested and friendly. My dog actually took treats from 2 people at the vet, which he has literally never done in 10 years. First was from a front desk staff person, but I don't remember her name! My dog took treats from her and got pets and kept going back to her.Then he also took treats from the surgeon (Dr. Hamel)...which s crazy to me because he normally doesn't even like men if I'm around and just never takes treats in a stressful situation. There was one vet tech that came in to draw blood that I felt wasn't very friendly or interactive but the one that came with her was nice enough, though I don't feel like she was listening to my pets airway when holding for blood and this was causing some extra distress that wasn't needed. Overall though, I still give 5 stars because the holder for the blood draw was doing her job, she doesn't know if a dog is going to move at a critical point. So just communication is a big thing.I also really liked Dr Perry. He was very informative and left a very detailed message about the blood work.I think the pricing could be better but that's more just about everywhere.T PT P ★★★★★ Everyone I talked to was really nice! They were so helpful!Elise M.Elise M. ★★★★★ So knowledgeable, kind, you will be in excellent hands at Westgate Pet Clinic.Suzi P.Suzi P. ★★★★★ We have 8 cats. Because we are insane crazy people. Westgate I'd pur new vet clinic for pur herd of special needs kitties. They always do right by us, they put up with me coming late to appointments (I know it makes their scheduling challenging and I apologize, they are really the best.)Anyone with cats especially should consider making this clinic your clinic.Taylor B.Taylor B. ★★★★★ I bring my kitten, Monkey, here and they have been nothing but wonderful. Dr. Dahl and the vet tech I’ve worked with (whose name I cannot remember for the life of me) have been so friendly and comprehensive in their care. I was provided a lot of informational pamphlets after my first visit which have been awesome for learning more about caring for my little guy. Monkey is my first pet of my own and I really feel at peace knowing he’s getting such great care. Hopefully I never have to come here for anything other than routine/preventative care, but if I do, I know Monkey is in good hands.Elise R.Elise R. ★★★★★ This vet clinic has great doctors, caring staff and they’re incredibly responsive.Bonnie H.Bonnie H. ★★★★★ Marie is always a shining star behind the customer service desk! Love coming in to see everyone hereAnthony V.Anthony V. ★★★★★ Have been taking our pets here for 15 years. Wonderful vets here. Have been very helpful with our special needs dog.Rob M.Rob M. ★★★★★ 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. ★★★★★ 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. ★★★★★ 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. ★★★★☆ Very professionalTony K.Tony K.js_loader
