She answered all of our questions!My only reason for not giving a 5 was because they were 30 minutes behind and no one made me aware. Had I known I would have brought my dogs outside or stayed in my car until they were ready for us. While I understand that delays happen I wish there was communication 🙂Natasha I.Natasha I. ★★★★☆ We take our dogs to KV Care. Dr. Nikki is so good with the girls. Support staff is great. Only things we don't care for is sometimes having to wait awhile to get an appointment and they're a little more expensive than other small clinics in the area. In all fairness though, they are a popular vet clinic.Kelly M.Kelly M. ★★★★☆ Very friendly staff -- return calls in a timely manner -- they are very concerned for the well fair of the animal. I also know that if I needed them for an emergency during the day they would be there for my pet.Jane C.Jane C. ★★★★☆ Really nice and clean place. Everyone is super friendly and explains everything well. But because it's a 24 hour Emergency Vet the wait time is long. We got there at 5pm, she had a broken leg, and I had to leave at 930pm without my dog and they called me to come back at 1230am to get her.Michelle R.Michelle R. ★★★★☆ Great care for my furry family. When you call they actually take the time to talk with you.Michael & Mary F.Michael & Mary F.js_loader

The team at KVC has taken such amazing care of our puppy, Cooper! He has a lot of anxiety when it comes to the vet’s office, but Dr. Paul and his team are always so patient with him. They always do their best to make sure that he’s not uncomfortable or scared. Can’t tell you how awesome it is to see the vet and vet techs are willing to just sit on the floor and wait for him to approach them on his own time! They also give us ways to try to make the experience more comfortable and less stressful for him.Looking forward to many more years of Cooper seeing his friends at KVC.

The staff here are amazing!! I have taken my cat there for medical issues in the past. I still take my dog there. I had to put my cat down on Monday, the staff from Kronenwetter vet were so kind and thoughtful to send me a wonderful card. Even though they were not the ones to send her off.

Jessica G.

We have an 1 year old English Setter with allergies. I’ve tried other vets, the visits were short and felt very impersonal. Dr.Paul listened and asked questions! When Dr.Paul entered the room he knelt down to my dog and made her feel comfortable, which spoke volumes to me! He examined her and continued to pet her the entire time we were there! I can’t say enough about our visit! If you want a vet who listens and answers all your questions I recommend Dr.paul and staff!

Britany C.

Since relocating to the Kronenwetter area from the Twin Cities we needed to find a Vet Clinic for our fur family. We have been here almost a year now and are very happy with the care we have received at Kronenwetter Veterinary Care. We would recommend them to everyone.

Kent G.

I have been going to Kronenwetter Vet Since they opened and I was a child. My parents brought my pets here when I was a kid and I have done the same with my pets as an adult. You couldn’t find a better place to care for your furry kids. If you live close enough to bring them here I highly suggest you do.


We love Kronenwetter Vet, from the receptionists to the vet techs to the vets, everyone treats us and our dogs like family! Couldn’t be happier with the service and care received. Dr. Lisa and Dr. Chris have been a huge part of our dogs lives.
