Everyone is very pleasant, friendly and the care is the best. We have been patients of Care Animal Hospital since it opened (for almost 30 years) and wouldn’t think of going anywhere else.

Appointments, Walk-Ins, House Calls

We accept appointments and walk-ins and provide a house call service as well as a “Pet Taxi” pick-up and delivery service. Many of our clients find the house call services very convenient when they have multiple pets, farm animals, or those highly anxious special pets that refuse to enjoy the car ride to their friendly veterinarian.  We are pleased to serve our patients during extended hours, including lunch hour, for your convenience.

We also offer cat dentist services, cat grooming, cat microchip, cat neutering, cat vaccinations, cat parasite treatment, and cat surgery services. In addition, we have dog neutering, dog surgery, dog vaccinations, dog dentist, dog grooming, dog microchip, dog flea and tick prevention services.
