Bemidji Veterinary Hospital

Our mission is to provide the highest quality of veterinary medicine in the most compassionate and professional manner possible.

A Focus on the Patient

We are a pet health care team. Each of our employees has a passion for pets. This is a bond that unites us all. We take that title and responsibility very seriously. We offer medical options that best meet the needs of our clients and patients.

A Focus on the Community

We also value being community-minded. In fact, Bemidji Veterinary Hospital has been a part of the community since the 1940s. Many of our employees grew up near Bemidji or have lived in the Bemidji area for many years. We know our clients personally. Our staff members participate in community activities. They are regularly involved in community groups, volunteer projects, and charity events. During the construction of our new hospital, local contractors and resources were used for over 93% of the total project.

Staff is great!BitDano (BitDano)BitDano (BitDano)1702597621 ★★★★★ We have worked with Bemidji Vet's professional dog trainer, Juliet Flint, for nearly a year now. Our dog has had some significant behavioral/aggression issues and Juliet has helped us, the dog and the people, progress to a point of calm and excellent behavior. She models all of the dog training techniques she suggests as well as links videos that show us what to do. She works with us humans just as much as the dog, providing support, encouragement and firm guidance as to how to manage our dog and live a happy life together. She is amazing! One last thing to mention that we are so impressed with is that after each training session Juliet sends a complete recap of what was covered along with multiple links of products or videos that will help us work on things at home. She's amazing and our dog loves her!Nancy MasonNancy Mason1702037396 ★★★★★ Everyone was friendly and helpful.Ricky ConnerRicky Conner1701874980 ★★★★★ We are very pleased with the results we are getting with Juliet’s dog training service. She was able to diagnose our little shelter dog’s issues before the end of our first visit. Better still, Juliet was able to develop a training program specific for our needs. She also recommended products that would bring more fun into Scrappy’s daily routine and challenge his curiosity. We started to see improvement in our dog within the first few days. Scrappy is excited to learn and is really taking to the program and learning quickly. We would highly recommend Juliet to anyone who wants to improve the life of their pet.Cindy LewerCindy Lewer1701737437 ★★★★★ Our experience with Juliet, professional dog trainer, has been excellent.

Along with in-person sessions, Juliet provides us with helpful and detailed instructions, along with videos, to assist us with continual home training. Juliet is always available for any questions we may have. Our little Zoe loves her trainer.Sheila ThomtonSheila Thomton1701536538 ★★★★★ We have been impressed with the service we’ve received at Bemidji Veterinary Hospital and especially the great work of trainer Juliet Flint.

Bemidji Vet Hospital & Boarding provided the thoughtful loving service they each deserved. We now have a third stray shepherd-husky mix that has found us.

There are many great veterinarians in Bemidji, but Bemidji Vet Hospital has always been my regular. Trustworthy, kind, caring, and knowledgeable.Update:Visited Bemidji Vet Hospital again, this time for nothing to be happy about. We had to put down our family dog because her cancer had worsened quite quickly. The staff were calm, understanding, respectful, and empathetic. They gave us all the time we needed and were gentle with our dog in her final moments. They do cremation in house and also do clay paw prints. I'd recommend Bemidji Vet Hospital both in the good times and in the bad times.Emily HeadbirdEmily Headbird1679409859 ★★★★★ Great workers and clean workplace!JacksonJackson1678549094 ★★★★★ The staff are so friendly and seem genuinely caring.

Every single person I’ve encountered there was absolutely wonderful! My cat had major abdominal surgery, and as Dr. Pillar quite accurately stated, my cat is a one-woman cat. A week later, my cat boarded there for 2 nights. Every tech I encountered, each time I’ve gone there, was attentive, caring, kind, and a joy to deal with. The same is true of Dr. Pillar, who is kind, caring, and has excellent attention to detail, which is exactly what you want in a good surgeon.

Lisa

I always feel comfortable bringing my best friend to BVH. They have a friendly staff and I feel they genuinely care about her. Thanks.

Kenneth

Staff was great! Everyone was really sweet, gentle, & patient with my French bulldog. He’s a big baby & didn’t want to go anywhere without me. Staff was very calm & took their time letting him get comfortable.
