BROOKLYN PARK PET HOSPITAL
Dedicated to every pet. Every time.
Dr. Kari Strohmaier
Dr. Kari Strohmaier grew up in the western suburbs of Minneapolis and attended the University of Wisconsin-Madison for undergraduate studies with a focus on animal science. She applied and gained entry to vet school a year early, graduating with her DVM from the University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine in May of 2016. Since then, Dr. Strohmaier has been practicing small animal medicine in the twin cities.
While her love for animals is what drew her to veterinary medicine, her favorite part of the job is the personal relationship building; she really enjoys getting to know her clients and fostering the human-animal bond. Dr. Strohmaier’s areas of medical interest are endocrinology, urology, dermatology, and geriatric/palliative care.
Dr. Strohmaier lives in New Brighton with her husband Max, two young daughters Nora and Elsie, a fluffy shepherd mutt named Banjo, and a big meow-y orange tabby named Cal. Outside of being a veterinarian and a mom, Dr. Strohmaier’s greatest passion in life is music! She is a singer and can be found performing in casual settings (coffee shops, bars, breweries) as well as at formal events (weddings, galas, and professional sporting events). In her spare time, she enjoys spending time at her family’s cabin in Northern Minnesota.
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
