  • Q:

    My Georgie is a bishon poodle rescue, partly fearful and partly spoiled (by me, sorry). He is in dire need of having his ears cleaned, an anti-fungal shampoo and even a grooming if I can afford it. Would you mind letting me know the ~ cost for it?


    Thank you for reaching out, Kathy. It sounds like you take great care of Georgie! NorthStar VETS doesn't offer grooming services, but your family veterinarian may be able to help you in this area or make a recommendation. All the best to you!

  • Q:

    Can anyone just write how much they paid? Simple things like the cost of intake, an xray, specialist would be really helpful. thanks


    Overall I can say that I found them to be moderately in their pricing -- but more important they have always been transparent in all fees up front so that we could make an informed decision. My best advice is reach out to them directly and ask them… more

Your trust is our top concern, so businesses can't pay to alter or remove their reviews. Learn more.

  • This visit occurred a couple of months ago. I definitely chose the wrong career. This pet hospital has been super busy all weekend. I went there today and was well received. The attendants greet you in the emergency parking lot when you drive up, ask questions about your visit, hand you a clip board.  The attendant was wearing a mask when she walked up to my vehicle. My dog had delivered puppies but according to an  X-ray In addition to her behavior she had 1 more puppy inside her. We were advised to    Give her a shot that would induce labor and to do this testing to check for calcium levels. No surgery needed if the shot worked. After waiting around for approximately 2 hours were told that our dog wasn't responding and would need surgery. We were disappointed and frustrated because we didn't want to pay the $4,000 to have surgery and then they would want fix her at the same time. We didn't want the surgery. We preferred the natural birthing process of course. The price was increasing by the minute at this rate. We decided to pay the bill for the testing and shot which cost us a little less than $1,000 dollars and wait and see if the shot would finally work. Shortly after leaving the parking lot our dog began to deliver the 7th puppy. We were relieved for her.

    There was coupon that appeared on Yelp when I clicked Check-In. I was supposed to get this Pooparion when I asked for it. I asked but the employee said she didn't know anything about it. Ugh!

    In summary, this vet renders good service but they are pricey so make sure you mentally are prepared to exercise your own ceiling for what you are willing to pay.

    Thank you for your review and we're very happy to hear your seventh puppy was born. Congratulations! The poopanion is a little poop bag holder which we'd be happy to mail your way, and might come in handy when walking those pups in the future! Send an email to [email protected] with where you'd like it to be sent.

  • *Edit: I called the number given below (hospital administrator) 3 or 4 times over a week or so, left messages.  Never got a return call. *

    Was not happy with their response to a crashing kitten who was brought in immediately when he came down ill, kitten died within 24hrs of them sending him home.

    Also, $400+ to do cpr on an animal is criminal - let's watch an animal that could be saved die because we want $400+ to preform cpr.  Sickening. - its CPR, not surgery.

    Said kitten was brought in Sunday with blood in his stool, vomiting and lethargic behavior after being spritely the previous day and weeks.  All they did was give a dose of wormer (without fecal results), sent a fecal out and sent us home with him despite him clearly being sick. No blood was drawn.  No fluids were given.  No xray or ultrasound.  Nothing offered or given.  6/7 week old kitten.  Less than 12 hours later the kitten basically crashed and became unresponsive acting and we rushed him back.  Kitten died very shortly after arriving.  Actually, he died while we were in the middle of filling out paperwork for him to stay for care.  Because you know, they need approval to preform cpr on an animal that could be saved. But only if you will pay them $400+ for that cpr!  They don't react and aren't proactive until its too late.  And I now have a dead kitten.  Only wish I'd brought him someplace else - he may still be alive or at least received appropriate care for his symptoms before he was in crisis.

    I held off on writing a review for this location to make sure that I had a well rounded review based off of a length of service.
    I will start with the positives.
    1. The veterinary staff is amazing and thorough. They really do want the best for your pets and to make sure they have long, pain free, and healthy lives. When I do have appointments with the vets they make time to have lengthy discussions with me and answer every question I have. As you can imagine, when your pet is ill your head spins and you have many questions and they really handle this well.
    2. They have "tech" appointments. If your pet needs a small follow up for blood work you can schedule a tech appointment where they do not see the vet. The vet reviews the results when they come back and the technician will call you with their assessment. This saves a lot of time and some cash.
    3. Their pharmacy department is top notch. They are easy to work with, you can both call and email them for refills and they are ready with a day or two.
    4. The staff has been very kind and considerate. I had made an error with my pet's medicine (a misunderstanding of dosage for my already very ill cat) and the technician stayed on the line while I was upset with my pet's current condition and made me feel much better and let me know that it is not uncommon.

    And the negatives...
    1. If you need to speak with a staff member it is EXTREMELY difficult to get through to someone without being on hold for 30 minutes to an hour or to have to leave a message and wait days for a call back. There have been multiple occasions where I have had to call back days after I was told I would be called the next day asking when I would speak with someone and they tell me there is nobody to call me. HOW IS THAT POSSIBLE?! They are very clearly understaffed and it affects the customer service so badly. If my pet didn't need specialized care I would never take my pet here based off of that alone. The main phone line is tied to the emergency room line. This is very difficult to manage. They are trying to assist all emergencies (understandable), but those that are regular patients are put on hold for 30 minutes to an hour while they "catch up". I am patient and will wait, but there have been a couple of times that I have broken down and had to push back and demand help as I have work to get back to. Nobody has all day to sit on a phone and wait for help.
    2. This clinic is very expensive. We have been saved by having pet insurance, but I can only imagine that we would be in very extreme debt due to our pet's ongoing illness if we did not and we are still staring down a $4,000.00 surgery to remove teeth if improved health allows. I will say that I understand that I am paying for specialists. I expected there to be an increase in cost, but it is significant, so I just would say to make sure you speak with your local vet if it is not a critical problem that your pet is enduring that is able to be addressed by a local clinic. I have not brought my pet in for an emergency yet and I can only imagine that the costs are similar, if not worse.
    3. There is always a long wait for your appointment (30 - 45 minutes) before your pet is taken back. I understand waits for emergency services, or to wait 15 minutes or so for a regular appointment, but 45 minutes regularly begins to feel excessive.
    4. It is very difficult to schedule follow up appointments. The doctor says they want you back in 2 weeks, but there are no availabilities. I don't know how you can ensure good continuing care with no available appointments for the time your requiring. It has been a bit of a battle to make sure I get in on time and sometimes I have had to go to other locations not near me to be seen.

    Emergency Room
    1. I have little experience with their emergency department, but, from what I've seen while I wait for my appointments, it is very typical to other emergency vets that I have been to. Very long waits, frustrated and upset pet owners watching their pets in pain as they wait to be seen. If your pet is an extreme case, their staff does rush out and gather your pet and rush them back for immediate care, but that still leaves everyone in the waiting room waiting. I think this is hard for any emergency room (vet or hospitals for us) to manage and change. They have to prioritize those that are in worse condition.
    2. I did call in an emergency one time where I was concerned that there may have been an overdose of medicine. To be clear this was not their error. The medicine was, however, prescribed by their office and the staff that answered the emergency line said they didn't know what would happen if there was an overdose and suggest I call poison control. That left me pretty flabbergasted. I left the phone call and then called back and spoke with someone else who got me on with a technician that helped me sort it out. I just don't know what would have happened if I had simply called poison control and not spoke with the vet.

    Thank you for your very thorough review, J W. Our team works extremely hard to see patients and answer phones in a timely manner, and we apologize for not meeting your expectations there. To better understand how our hospital is operating differently due to effects of the pandemic, see….

  • I have only been to NorthStar twice to have my Lilly girl examined by Dr. Alexandra Crooks for a cardiac tumor. She also performed an echocardiogram at both visits. I have nothing but praise for Dr. Crooks & staff. Dr. Crooks went over Lilly's chemodectoma findings in full detail and answered all of my questions. She was extremely kind. Lilly & I thank you.

    Thank you for your kind words, Linda!

  • Yesterday was my second time bringing one of my exotic pets (a crested gecko) to NorthStar as an emergency. The entire staff was AMAZING. From the moment I walked in, everyone was very kind and helpful. Despite their full, busy schedule, they were still able to give me little guy the absolute best standard of care and diagnostics. Dr. Winkel kept me up to date throughout the entire day and made sure I was involved in my gecko's treatment. She was open and honest with me about her prognosis and what she thought she'd be able to do for him. I honestly could not say enough about how much I love and appreciate this hospital. Thank you so much, NorthStar.

    Thank you so much for your review, Leslie, it means a lot to us! All the best to you and your crested gecko!

  • Beware stay away!! This vet company is not going to last! Do not be another one they harm before they go under. The owner of this company belongs in jail! They are seeking opportunities to exploit and take advantage of pet owners in vulnerable circumstances for their financial gain, do not allow yourself to be added to their long list of victims! North Star Vets has no ethical or moral boundaries and are willing to infringe upon your rights in any way they please, at any time they desire. North Star Vets is not only routinely driven by grossly incompetent practices but are endowed with their guiding principle of a malicious dereliction of a duty to aid suffering animals.
    This is the owner's arrogant response to my problem. He/she does not apologize nor do they care or value their customers at all. This response perfectly encapsulates the uncaring, solely profit seeking attitude of the ownership at the customers expense regardless of what harm they cause to you or your pet. This company has given me every impression from their behavior to their attitudes and in every thing that they have conveyed that they do care about your pet or you and are willing to hurt you financially, emotionally and psychologically. This owner is a leech.
    They have no idea what's best for your pet. I gave them the benefit of the doubt and assumed it was incompetence or ineptitude however it's far worse, it's criminal negligence and Northstar vets will add on many wholly unnecessary, sometimes harmful medicines to give your pet, simply to jack the price up. Also take a look at the bill I have provided they will tack on various "administrative" fees that make no sense. The various nonsensical fees are added just to boost their charges. Take a look at the $100 administrative fee to write up the estimate. Just to write up the bill! Also another $50 just to be "admitted", for example. If you look at the medicines, and google them, several are redundant, merely different brand versions of drugs  serving the same intended purpose. This is a grafting criminal enterprise not a place to care for your pet. Do not be conned here!
    Stay away from this vet clinic at all costs! You've been warned!! They'll kill your pet without any remorse and blame it on you!  Through their incompetence and uncaring attitude they will allow your pet to die when they are in need of assistance and they do not see a problem with this at all!!
