What We Believe In

We’re St. Paul’s Friendly Neighborhood Veterinarian

St. Paul Pet Hospital is family-owned and located in the heart of St. Paul. We are long-time community members ourselves, and we love this city. You may even recognize our owner and veterinarian, Dr. Eric Ruhland, from his TV appearances on The Jason Show! At our animal hospital, we take a personalized, compassionate approach to veterinary medicine that treats your pet like the individual they are.

We Believe In...

Highly Personalized Pet Care

Your pet is special, and they deserve personalized veterinary care that treats them as an individual. To do that, we take time to get to know you and your pet—first-time visits can often take an hour as we delve into your pet’s medical history, lifestyle, behavior, your concerns, and so much more.

Supporting St. Paul Organizations & Businesses

We have a deep dedication to St. Paul, and want to do what we can to elevate our community. Our vets and staff are no strangers to many of our local shelters and rescues, and we also take pride in supporting other local businesses. Find out more about the work we do around St. Paul!

Pet Ownership Being Simple

You have a lot of responsibilities as a pet parent. That's why we simplified pet ownership by creating cat and dog wellness plans that cover all of your pet’s essential health care needs for one low monthly fee. Our wellness plans cover annual exams, vaccinations, blood work, and more! Find out more about how to enroll your pet today.

Life-Long Learning

Veterinary medicine is changing rapidly, and keeping up with the latest trends is essential to providing the highest quality care possible to St. Paul’s pets. That’s why we routinely send staff members to continuing education seminars, veterinary conferences, and other learning opportunities in order to stay abreast of the latest trends. Find out more about what it’s like to be a part of our cutting-edge team.

Going Green

The health of our pets, and indeed ourselves, is deeply intertwined with our environment. We dedicate ourselves to sustainability in every aspect of our hospital, from online medical records and energy-efficient light bulbs to water conservation and recycling. And we encourage all our team members to keep these same principles in mind at home. Going green isn’t just a trend to us; it’s a lifestyle.
