While I hope that I never need to return to AEVS, they are a great resource if in urgent need of animal care after hours. It is somewhat expensive, but so is an ER visit for a human. The place is clean, and well-run. They are sometimes quite busy, but they are very fair in deciding which pet needs to be seen next. Obviously, this isn’t intended to be your regular veterinarian, but for a pet who becomes ill or injured outside of normal business hours, AEVS is the place to take them. The caregivers and staff are competent and thorough, and very clearly explained my options to me--which tests they recommended and why. The main office is in Eden Prairie, but I have only been to the Golden Valley office. They also have offices in Coon Rapids and St. Cloud.
