BROOKLYN PARK PET HOSPITAL
Dedicated to every pet. Every time.
Dr. Laura Elliott
Dr. Laura Elliott grew up in Northeast Iowa and received a Bachelor of Arts degree from Wartburg College in 2006, and then attended Iowa State University College of Veterinary Medicine and graduated with honors in 2010. Dr. Elliott then moved to the Twin Cities to complete a rigorous internship at the University of Minnesota Veterinary Medical Center. During that year, Dr. Elliott fell in love with the area and accepted a position at a clinic in Maple Grove. Over the 9 years she was at this practice, she led the task of obtaining Cat Friendly Practice Certification and helped with the implementation of both Low Stress Handling and Fear Free methods.
Dr. Elliott enjoys working with both dogs and cats but her primary interests are anything cat related! Her primary areas of interest include feline preventative care (especially care of senior cats), feline behavior and feline internal medicine. She has attended multiple continuing education events over the years along with specialized courses to further work towards specializing in feline medicine. Additionally, Dr. Elliott is an advocate for Low Stress Handling and has certifications in both Low Stress Handling and Fear Free Practice.
Dr. Elliott is a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association, Minnesota Veterinary Medical Association, and the American Association of Feline Practitioners, of which she served as an intern on the executive board.
Outside the clinic, Dr. Elliott enjoys spending time with her family (which includes two very active boys, two cats and a dog) at home and at the lake. She enjoys spending time outside gardening or relaxing by the lake fishing. She is also an avid reader and is typically in the middle of several books at a time!
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
