Our Community

Improving our community and the quality of life for our neighbors is the driving belief behind St. Paul Pet Hospital.  Science proves that the interaction between humans and animals greatly enhances the quality and quantity of human life.  We believe by delivering high-quality veterinary care we can directly improve the health of our residents and the community.

Education and Life-Long Learning

Learning never stops.  Every day, St. Paul Pet Hospital challenges our employees and doctors to evolve our current understanding of what we know.  Through this process of self-challenge and scientific exploration we become better clinicians, students, and citizens.  St. Paul Pet Hospital is committed to the principles of the scientific method and our ability to reveal new information that is objective, repeatable, and unbiased.

Mentorship is a critical step of life-long learning, and is vital to engaging the future generation of scientists. We encourage our staff to take on mentorship roles within the veterinary community and attend a variety of cutting-edge continuing education opportunities to fine-tune our technical skills and knowledge base. St. Paul Pet Hospital is strongly committed to sharing and teaching the most progressive medicine with veterinary students, staff, and our clients. By volunteering our time and wisdom, we ensure that the future of science and veterinary medicine is strong.


We believe that locally and independently owned business are the single most important way to keep communities financially sustainable and positioned for improvement.  Being a private and locally owned member of the St. Paul Business community, St Paul Pet Hospital strives to donate, support, and volunteer time to the cause of high-quality independently operated businesses.
