Can't judge this book by its cover. You will never get a vet who cares more about your pet than this guy. Get past the look and cleanliness and you will find an affordable veternarian. Want beautiful and super clean and professional

Don't judge the book by its cover, I say. Despite a somewhat rustic look of the place, and animal smells (expected), the quality of care and attention is top notch and the prices are really good. We took our cats there a several times and

The Vet pet in Fridley MN and his staff have been amazing, My dog came down with pneumonia somehow and not only was Dr Hofmeister attentive, caring, kind and considerate, his assistants were as well. You genuinely feel that this business cares about the animals and their well-being and THAT is the kind if veterinarian that I want my babies to be treated by whenever they need medical assistance. If you really care about your pets, then consider this Vet and his associates. As a man of limited financial means at times, not only was my pet treated with care and a certain kind of 'friendliness' that made her comfortable and feel at ease during her medical emergency, I was as well. The fact that my dog received QUALITY care at a price I could afford with a payment plan when all was said and done made my day! Thank you Pet vet for saving my dog. You will see me and my future pets again! And as far as people posting negative things are concerned, animals are ANIMALS. If you are a REAL animal person, smells and things like that shouldn't bother you! You should be used to them.

I went here for the first time yesterday. I will keep coming back as long as I have pets. The Doctor knows what he is doing & the staff are knowledgeable too. They were very busy, but I didn't have to wait very long. The prices are excellent. I honestly don't know why everybody would not go here? People complain that it smells or that it's an old building or that there are a couple cats that hang out. 1st off it does not smell at all. 2nd - who cares if the building is older & a couple cats hang out on the counter. They are very nice cats! I LOVE this place! 5 stars all the way !!! :)

The first time I met Dr Hofmeister was when I had to put my cat down, he was the only vet I could find that didn't charge much and would allow me to be with her when she passed. Before he put her to sleep, he gave her a kiss and I could feel how much he cared for the animals he treats. Even though he had never met Sadi before, I felt that it hurt him to have to put her down and it did me. Since then I have brought all my animals to him, not only for the prices but because of his passion for animals. Last year one of my dogs got ill, some sort of virus and regular antibiotics wasn't working so I had to go to the clinic everyday so she could have a shot, and not only did he see her everyday to give her a shot, he came in on his day off, Sunday to give her a shot. I don't know of any vet that would have done that. Dr Hofmeister definitely works for his love of animals and for that and what he has done for my animals he will always have my business.

I have been using the Pet Vet for over 12 years now. I love it there. Dr. Hofmeister honestly cares about animales and is honest. Ive been reading some of these reviews and it sounds like misunderstanding and picky people. The Doc is very easygoing and friendly. He gets along better with the animals then the people at times but he know his stuff. He always greets my pets like they understand them and like they are family. I know the place sometimes smells and looks old but I have seen many improvements over the years and I THINK it shows he would rather spend your hard earned money on staffing the Clinic properly and the means needed to take care of the animals more then apperance. He is very understanding and has even given me payment options that other clinics wouldnt even think of. I think his clinic is adaquit and I think he doesnt upgrade or remodel to keep the customers cost down. I think he is a great vet and I would recommend him to anyone. He truely cares about the animals and not the money. To those who he misdiagnosed or you felt he didnt care..... it was probably just a mistake, he is human like the rest of us. Everyone makes mistakes and noone is perfect. I work in the health care field and lose patients at time and its not that I dont know what Im doing or even did something wrond.... things just happen. Sometimes the outcome is not what you want or like but we are all just human and not perfect. I love the Pet Vet. The Doc gives the clinic a hometown feel. You almost feel like your in a small town clinic. It gives a homey, and family clinic feel.

I have been going there for 20 years or better. Yes I have thought gee it stinks in there and I have thought why don't they do something about it. But I feel he is one of the Best Vet's around and the most reasonable. And I have had Cat's & Dog's So if you are reading this, give him a chance. He his a very good guy and I only wish there where more people like him around. I have read some of the rewiew'a that some don't like the place which is good because if they all liked him it would be every hard for me to get anapointment. I have tryed other vet's and got charged an arm and a leg. He is there to help and doesn't charge a lot. So if you have a lot of money go somewhere else, but if you don't. And you really wont someone who care's about you and your Pet go there . I hope this helps you.

I have brought my 2 cats to this clinic and it stinks and the doctor is mean and VERY unfprofessional, not a good personality you should have to be a vet, he called my cat a fat thing and he had 2 big dogs running around in the exam room when my cat was getting his checkup and another cat that actually crawled into my cats cage while he was being examined, also animals running freely all over the counters and everywhere. Don't go there unless you want your animal to be treated like a thing!

Dr. Hofmeister is a wonderful vet. My mom and i take our two miniature pinschers there and he knows ight when we step in the door. Of course that's why i decided over the summer to ask to volenteer here. Yes, it may smell like urine but get over please. I've been working here for a few months and if i'm a teen and can get over the smell, im pretty sure you can too.
He helped whe my oldest miniature pinscher needed it most. He told us "Go to the U of M. Her liver is having problems."

We went to the U of M and Doc was right. Her liver was having problems. He was very helpful so we wouldn't have to put our adorable dog down.

If you ask me, (being i work there) this place is the place to go. Doc cares about your animals and if you don't get in when you made your appoinntment, IT'S BECAUSE WE HAVE OTHER PEOPLE'S ANIMAL ERE TOO!!!!!!!!! NOT JUST YOURS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He honest to goodness cares, no matter what other people say. The cat's running around, they wn't hurt you! It's not like they're gonna scratch your eyes out i mean COME ON PEOPLE!!!!! But please, go to doc. We answer the phone if we aren't on the phone with another client and the dogs are friendly. We care about your pets and honestly want to help. We may not get you in right at your appointment, but we will get to you. If doc doesnnt know you don't have an appointment, it's cause he doesn't set them up. We receptionists do. So if you want a good vet who cares, PET VET IS THE PLACE TO GO!!!!!!!!!! nd i'm not just saying that cuz i work there, Doc's been helpful with all my dogs. I don't trust anyone else. My grandparents have even been going here. That's how much we trust Doc!!

My family and I have been going there for over 15 years. In fact both of my sisters have worked there about 10 years ago. I used to come with them on days to help clean, walk the animals etc. Doc is awesome, he loves animals, and you can tell the second he picks up your cat or dog. Yes the place smells, but it does get cleaned! The receptionist now.. well I could live without, I think they can be rude. Doc knows his business and I would recommend him over anyone. In fact I am making a doc appt right now for my two kitties!

I took my cat to this vet office. He wasn't eating and I was concerned.
The doctor gave him a quick exam and said I need to bring him back the next day for blood work. The cat couldn't eat or drink the night before. I brought the cat in and later that day picked him up, when I arrived I was told that he had an infection and needed to take an antibotic. Sara told me everything else is great with the cat, "the blood work shows you have a healthy cat".
I took the cat home and 2 weeks later brought him back, now he needs denistry and he will be fine is what I was told. I did the dentistry, which included 4 teeth removed and an antibotic for the cat for 3 weeks. The cat cried every time I gave him the medicine.
4 weeks later the cat won't eat and I end up taking him to an emergency vet. Long story short the cat is loaded with cancer and has to be put to sleep immediately.
The emergency vet said the blood test would have confirmed the disease. I call Dr. Hofmeister office to get a copy of the blood tests and guess what, the blood test was never done.
I paid for a test that wasn't done, I was lied to about the results and worst of all I put my cat thru a surgery and meds that weren't going to help.
This guy is a quack, his staff are liars and if you care about your animals at all, take them to a REAL vet.

As you enter you see the front desk with cats draped over the counters contently. After you check in you go to either side for a waiting area. More cats to watch or pet while you wait. Pictures of Dr Hofmeister's Pugs on the walls.
When it is your turn, his attention is on greeting your pet. He may get down on his knees to pet them and hug them. Back in the examination area things look old. He will spend quite a while visiting with you and examining your pet. Prices are rock bottom and I think this shows he is there for the pets.

I used the clinic many years ago. The location and hours were too difficult after a while. Even tho I came yearly. He knew my pet right away.

I have always loved animals, from the time I was in grade school I would bring animals home and beg my mom to keep them. We lived in an apt. so the answer was almost always no. I talked her into a cat that was abandanded and sick. I loved Tickey soo much. Our apartment started a policy that all animals require a security deposit, spay or neuter and updated shots which my mom, as a single parent could not afford. We had to bring Tickey to the Human Society, it broke my 10 year old heart. I am so greatful for Dr Hoffmeister I wish we had him around when we had Tickey, he would have helped keep costs down and most likley put her on a payment plan. Thirty years later I still love animals I have trusted the good doctor with my cat Jazzy for 10 years and I also bring my Chihuahua and Lab in to see this great man. They have helped me in emergency situations many times. Get over the smell, The doctor and staff take good care of the cats in the office, maybe people shouldn't abandon and misstreat animals and then good people like the Doc and staff wouldn't have to take them in. What I am getting at is wether rich or poor everyone who loves animals should be able to afford to get thier animal good care. A BIG THANK YOU to the doc and girls. p.s. I love Sarahs Dobes

I absolutely love the pet vet! Though there is a slight smell, who really cares! The vet is so wonderful with all the animals that come in. He takes a little time to get to know your animals before he take a look at them. The prices are very reasonable and I have found all of the staff to be very helpful. Have been taking my pets here for over 10 years.

If you're too snooty and would rather pay top dollar just so your visit doesn't smell a little like animals (hello, it's a vet, animals are in there all the time, it's bound to smell a little) then don't go here, but you'll be missing out on great service at exceptional prices!

Bottom line: Great with animals, good diagnostics, and amazing prices.

i love this pet clinic. the prices are really good and the vet takes good care of the pets. it isn't fancy, but my cat didn't care. there is low overhead, because the vet does a lot of the scheduling, which saves money for the pet owner. don't judge the vet's work by the surroundings. it's a great place to take your pet!!

There is a reason that there prices are low at this place. i brought my ferret there because he was acting really sick. The doctor played with him for a couple of minutes and told me he injured his back. i took him to another vet for a second opionion and they diagnosed him with insaloma.(tumors on pancreas, form of cancer) they were treating my ferret for the wrong thing. I went back to the pet vet for medical records because my new vet wanted them, they told me that they lost the records, i thought that was VERY unprofessional. Inside the building it stinks like pee & poo, there are antsocial dogs and cats just running around the buiding, i though was very unprofessional. So my advice pay the extra buck and go some were else!!!

I recently went to this vet and I couldn't believe the cat urine smell that was coming from the place. This smell was so unbearable that I was surprised that this was an actual business. I have never smelled so much cat urine in my life. The place was so run down that even the plastic tarp sign was falling off. I was taken back by the icky gross smell and the old disgusting building that I will never going back.
The only bright side was that it was the cheapest in the area, but I guess you get what you pay for.

Dr. Hofmeister is kind, and the prices are very low. But i have been extremely disappointed with his diagnostic skills. My boy has been there four times and still has the same undiagnosed illness. Im on a very very tight budget and cannot afford to keep "bring him again in two weeks and we'll try something else." Would recommend for vaccinates and the like, but not illness treatment.

I have been a client for 24 years since my parents had a dog and have recommended hin many time. Ok I have two cats, one dog and he has always been very professional and you can understand what he is saying to you. His prices are affordable but ABOVE ALL HE REALLY CARES about you and your pet which I would hope you do too. What some people are complaining about is stupid, first if any of you have a pet of any kind like dog or cat, and you have found a way to make their bodily functions not smell whatsoever, Please share the secret!! Yes there are loose cats, would you rather be avoiding them on the highways? Yes there are dogs- Duh it is a vet's office!! Come on People!!
Don't listen to their BS, He is a great guy and would trust him and do with no question!!! It is very rare to find any medical doctor for humans or animals to care that much and not think of you as a chart number to get money from!!!

Don't listen to their BS, He is a great guy and would trust him and do with no question!!! It is very rare to find any medical doctor for humans or animals to care that much and not think of you as a chart number to get money from!!!

the place smells of urine, very bad. about 10 cats running free, and two huge dogs running around that belong to the rude receptionist. they never answer their phones, and are never on time with their aoppointments, but i bring all my animals there because the price is low, and the service is great.

We went to this place because of the lower prices, and upon a recommendation....I'de rather pay more for professional service!!. We took in 2 cats, one for spay, one a 6 month old for spay and declaw. To begin, we enter and there are 5 cats we see just running around, jumping on the counter, on chairs in the "waiting" area, I even saw one jump up on an exam table (now that's sanitary!). The place absolutely reaked of cat urine, so much so I was feeling as though I could vomit. We should have taken our babies and left, but I wanted to give it a chance. The next day we pick them up, and aside from seeing more cats loose running all over the place, there are two HUGE dogs, belonging to the receptionist. When she brought out our kitten whom had just had surgery, the cat was frightened by these dogs (whom are just loose and roaming wherever they please). Our kitten leaped in fear, and the girl said "Oh no we aren't playing this game", and grabs our baby by the back half very roughly. This is an animal who just had surgery!!, not only did she jump on to concrete from fear of those dogs, but then this girl is grabbing at her roughly!. I did speak up that this was very upsetting and highly unprofessional, though I believe it fell on deaf ears. I would never EVER take an animal to that place again!. The urine spray is unsanitary, having animals running all over the place without restriction is unprofessional,unsafe,and unsanitary. Pay the extra cost and take your furry children to a professional.

I set up an appointment for 4:20 pm, I arrived there at 4 and waited until 4:30 until someone talked to me. The place smelled of urine.
The Doctor did not know I had an appointment and asked me to come back tomorrow. The service was terrible

I have brought my pets to this vet since we discovered him. He helped me through the first full illness I had ever encountered with an animal, and even set up payment plans for her health care. My dog loves him as well, she perks up EVERYTIME we mention him.
I will soon be getting a new kitten, and there is absolutely no question in my mind who will be her primary vet.

Everytime a friend gets a pet, I get a pet, my mother gets a pet, I send them off to the pet vet in Fridley. This guy is the real deal. He loves animals, and you can tell. His compassion and knowledge show in every instance that you see him. I've had to be there when three pets were pet to sleep over the years, and they were taken to him, and each time, we were allowed to spend time, as much as we needed, with our beloved furry friend, saying our last goodbyes before and after the deed was done. Such a hard decision not being taken lightly, we would always ask if there was anything more we could do to prolong the quality and quantity of life, and he would give us honest and thoughtful answers.

The waiting room is also calming at the same time that it is energizing, since there is a constant sound of the purring and meowing of the resident cats. There are usually anywhere from 5-8 of them meandering around, depending on whether or not they are sleeping, eating, or trying to come home with you.

The hours are, understandibly, a little awkward. Since this is one vet, albeit with several assistants, he needs time to do surgeries as well as have time off. So, there's a span between 12pm and 3pm that there aren't appointments available during the week. However, he is open until 6pm, which is great for getting your pet in for those after work vaccinations or quick "oopsies" that sometimes occur just like with children.

PROS: helpful staff, compassionate vet, caring, willing to do whatever is needed
CONS: it does smell like a vet's office, decor could use some updating.
