BROOKLYN PARK PET HOSPITAL
Dedicated to every pet. Every time.
Dr. Erika Nordgren
Dr. Erika Nordgren grew up in Minneapolis and received her undergraduate degree in Animal Science from the University of Minnesota. She continued her education at the U of M and graduated from the College of Veterinary Medicine in 2005. She started her career by working at a small animal practice in Brooklyn Park for several years and then worked at a clinic in Chaska for 6 years. Dr. Nordgren joined the BPPH team in the fall of 2014. She lives in a NW suburb of Minneapolis with a family that includes dogs, cats, turtles, frogs, rats, and fish. She spends her spare time inventing new ways to keep her two little dogs entertained and trying to keep her cats from knocking things off the counters.
Her favorite things about being a vet are getting to work with cats and dogs every day, problem-solving, finding practical solutions to keep pets and owners happy, and knowing when to worry about her own pets. Her least favorite things about being a vet are giving bad news, always worrying about other people’s pets, and trying to keep her lab coats clean.
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
