Welcome to St Francis Animal Hospital
St. Francis Animal Hospital has been caring for pets and their people since 1992. Centrally located in Roseville, Minnesota, we serve clients throughout the Twin Cities metro area whose love and dedication to their pets make them demand the very best of veterinary medical care.
Staffed exclusively by animal lovers who understand that pets are family members, we have a fundamental commitment to compassionate care for patients and exceptional education for our clients. Each of our experienced and highly trained staff members is devoted to helping you make careful and informed medical decisions that are right for you and your pet.
We offer state-of-the-art medicine and surgery, preventative care, digital radiography, ultrasonography, veterinary dentistry, in-house pharmacy, and laboratory services. In addition to the traditional veterinary care that you’ve known for years, we are pleased to now offer massage therapy, laser therapy, Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM) (including acupuncture, food therapy, and herbal therapy), and a full hospice and palliative care program. We regularly treat dogs, cats, rabbits, ferrets, rodents, and backyard poultry. We understand the importance of the special bond that you share with your pets no matter what their size or shape.
Above all, we specialize in relationships. We serve as an extension of our clients’ families, creating unique relationships with each individual, providing an environment of mutual trust and respect, and providing outstanding care for our patients as if they were our own family members. Whatever unique role your pets may play in your life, we are dedicated to helping you care for them.

In order to continue to provide exceptional care to our existing clients, we are not accepting new clients at this time. Have you been a client of St. Francis in the past, or are you a current client who has added a new pet to your family? We are happy to see your new pet! Please continue to watch our website and social media for any updates to our new client policy.
