 Welcome to Apache Animal Hospital!Your Veterinarian in Minneapolis, MN

Pet Emergency? Read no further and call us right away! 

Apache Animal Hospital has been serving the needs of pets and their owners since 1974! Located in Northeast Minneapolis between 35W and Stinson Boulevard, we are convenient to animal owners in New Brighton, Roseville, Columbia Heights, St. Anthony and Fridley. Our veterinary clinic is run by Dr.Terry Rapacz, who has been practicing veterinary medicine since 1969.

The team at Apache Animal Hospital believes that communication and education are the foundation for successful veterinary care. The doctors and staff stay on top of the latest advances in veterinary technology and above all, we remember that all pets need to be treated with loving care during every check-up, procedure or surgery. 


Your time is valuable, that's why our doctors work by appointment. That specific time is set aside for you and your pet. Appointments can be made online using our Make An Appointment link that is found on each page of our website. 

Emergencies can and do happen, and we accept emergency appointments any time our clinic is open. Please see below for more information. 


Apache Animal Hospital accepts payment via cash, check, debit, credit (MasterCard, Visa, American Express), and Care Credit.  So that we can continue to provide your pet with high-quality services utilizing the best medical technologies, we request that payment be made at the time services are rendered.

We provide estimates for all same day services, surgeries and hospitalizations. If you have not received an estimate, you are welcome to request one at any time for your expected charges.

Emergency and Urgent Care

Our staff is trained and equipped to handle any emergency your pet has. Emergencies can be things such  as eating, rat/mouse poison, being hit by a car, or ingesting chocolate. If  you ever feel that your pet needs emergency treatment, it is best to call before coming in if possible, so that a team member can advise you on your particular emergency, and so that we can prepare for your arrival. 

We are also available for urgent  care when the condition is not life-threatening, but you feel your pet needs to be seen before you are able to get an appointment. Our veterinarians will do their best to accommodate you in between scheduled appointments. When you arrive,  our receptionists will be able to give you an estimate on how long you may have to wait in order to be seen.

Browse through our website and check out the pet articles in the Veterinary Topics area. There are even videos available to view on our Educational Videos tab. If you have any questions, please call 612-781-2734  or email us and we will promptly get back to you. Our office is conveniently located off 35W and Stinson Blvd; you can find directions on our Contact Us page. You can also subscribe to our newsletter which is created especially for Minneapolis pet owners. 

At Apache Animal Hospital, we treat your pets like the valued family members they are.

Read What Our Clients Say

  • "I brought my dog in after vomiting for 72 hours and then having bloody diarrhea, she was acting mopey but not lethargic. We saw Dr. Cleary and what I really liked about this vet is that she listened to me, gave me choices for care and also a price quote on avenues of treatment. Going big guns testing and treatment would cost $1000.00, however we chose conservative treatment for $300.00. Our dog stayed there for 5 hours, was given an injection of antiemetic and 1 liter of subcutaneous fluids. She was sent home with understandable instructions on treating her gastroenteritis, as well as a case of bland canned dog food. She had some tremors, but recovered nicely. Thank you Dr. Cleary for healing my Violet."

  • "I have been taking my dogs to Apache since 1996. From routine exams, neutering, emergency stitches, epilepsy treatment, kidney failure management, and finally euthenasia the staff has been wonderful, caring, compassionate and open. The current staff and vets are really wonderful with my Yorkie, and work hard to make it a fear-free experience for him. Nice, clean, comfortable waiting area. I do not feel like they guilt you into treatments, but actually give you alternatives based on your budget. It may not be the least expensive pet clinic in the cities, but if you want quality, compassionate care for your fur baby, and trustworthy Drs and staff, Apache Animal Hospital delivers."

  • "Went in on emergency. The staff was fantastic from Molly answering the phone when I was panicked, Amy whom was reassuring and Dr. Travis was compassionate and professional."
    Kelly Sharp
  • "These doctors are awesome. We went through four other animal hospitals before this one. They were the only ones who were able to figure out what our dog was sick with. The right diagnosis and meds changed her life!"
    Kelly Norden
  • "Can't say enough good things about Apache Animal Hospital. The staff is so caring and friendly. Dr. Travis was great! He explained everything to me and helped me understand Shadow's issues. I would recommend these folks to ALL pet owners. Thanks for all the caring!"
    Gloria D'Heilly
  • "Dr. Kai Dahlin spends time...listens...offers great and in depth answers. Shows his love and care for animals...I wouldn't go to anyone who doesn't have the click with animals."
