Dr. Abbi Kisthart

Dr. Abbi Kisthart grew up in Southern Minnesota and dreamed of becoming a veterinarian from a young age. She attended the University of Minnesota and earned a Bachelor of Science in Animal Science with honors, graduating a semester early in 2019. She continued her journey as a Golden Gopher at the University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine and earned her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine in 2024. Dr. Kisthart is excited to begin her professional career with Brooklyn Park Pet Hospital!

Dr. Kisthart is passionate about relationships and loves to build trusting and authentic connections with her patients and their caregivers. She strives to empower pet parents and provide a positive experience that honors the human-animal bond. Dr. Kisthart is fascinated by all aspects of medicine, with current special interests in client education, small mammals (especially rabbits), preventive medicine, and peaceful end of life care. She also plans to maintain involvement in local community medicine outreach.

Outside of the clinic, Dr. Kisthart loves to be with her family, which includes her wonderful husband and two fur babies – Acorn the Holland Lop and Tex the Chihuahua Mix! She enjoys rocking out at concerts, spending time outdoors, cooking new recipes, reading, and catching up with friends near and far.



This veterinarian is the best pet hospital I have ever been to & I have been to at least a dozen in 3 different states. They treat you the way they would treat their own & have compassion for the owners when you lose a pet. They never suggest procedures that don't need to be done & will tell you whether it makes sense to do something or not.

The grooming at BP Pet Hospital is exceptional! I had a cocker spaniel that was extremely difficult to groom & had been banned from at least 8 groomers, however, this place was able to groom her and said she wasn't that bad. I would give 10 stars if I could.

The staff is incredibly friendly. They have options for Wellness Plans where you pay monthly to cover your pet's annual exams, vaccinations, and tests. Their groomer, Sabrina, does a wonderful job for a very reasonable price. They also offer boarding which is super convenient and gives a lot of peace of mind knowing that if something happens to our dogs while we are out of town, they have professional care on site.

I trust Brooklyn Park Pet Hospital 100%. My three kitties have all been treated here. The staff is super friendly, and they are reasonably priced. They do a great job caring for this crew, and we are very pleased to call BBPH our vet.

Dr. Stromberg was able to diagnose my pitbull of his skin condition that many other vets missed and help us stay on top of his ear infections and absolutely is amazing with him and our newest puppy, and was able to squeeze him in on extremely short notice for an issue he was having that couldn’t wait until tomorrow. Dr. Stromberg is the reason we keep coming back! She is extremely knowledgable, easy to talk to, and doesn’t judge the animal based on breed, which a lot of other vets we have been to in the past do. I would highly recommend going to her. Most of the other staff there are amazing as well. Very personable. Grateful we found her!

Thank you to the wonderful staff at the BPPH for helping me with my kitty. They made me feel good about the choice I made to put my cat down. They were super patient and let me take my time saying goodbye to my girl. They were very understanding of how I was feeling & how hard it was for me to do that. Thank you! I will be coming back when I choose to get another pet. 10/10
