Welcome to Arden Shoreview Animal Hospital!

“The Best Animal Care by People Who Care”

   We are so glad that you have chosen to visit us today. Arden Shoreview Animal Hospital (ASAH) was founded in 1984 by Dr. Richard Routhe and is recognized as one of the best animal hospitals in the Twin Cities area. ASAH is a fully equipped animal hospital dedicated to delivering quality medical care to our animal patients, as well as quality service to our clients. Our motto, “The Best Animal Care by People Who Care” is the foundation on which this hospital was built. It has been the philosophy underlying our success in becoming one of the most highly respected, trusted, and recommended animal hospitals in the area.  We know that choosing a veterinary hospital for your pet is one of the most important decisions that you make as a pet owner, so we have tried to design our website to help you do that. We encourage you to look through our website, where you can meet our staff, review our services, and check out what's new/interesting. Feel free to take a virtual tour of our hospital, or better yet, give us a call to schedule a time to come in and check us out for yourself. We know that you will see why we have been consistently voted, "The Best Place for Pet Care" in the north suburban area!

We are AAHA Accredited

AAHA is the American Animal Hospital Association. AAHA is the only organization that accredits animal hospitals throughout the United States and Canada. AAHA-accredited hospitals are evaluated on over 900 standards in many areas, including: anesthesia, contagious diseases, dentistry, diagnostic imaging, emergency and critical care, facilities, laboratory, medical records, pain management, pharmacy, safety, and surgery, to name a few. Only 12% of veterinary clinics in the United States and Canada are AAHA accredited, so this shows how esteemed this accreditation is. The staff at Arden Shoreview Animal Hospital have worked hard to become an AAHA-accredited veterinary hospital, and are proud to continue that accreditation to this day. The certification process we continually go through guarantees the high quality service you expect and the excellent care your pet deserves.
