Animal Doctors Veterinary Clinic offers complete healthcare to our patients. Our full-service medical facility and our experienced staff provide preventive care and immunizations to protect your pet's health and to fit your life-style. We use risk-assessment to predict the preventive care needs of each of our patients and work with you to decide what is right for your pet.


Surgery and Dentistry

Our surgical team readily performs scheduled procedures such as neutering and spaying, as well as, more urgent treatment for cuts or broken bones. We use modern advances in anesthesia to ensure that our patients feel and heal better. Animal Doctors is committed to providing your pet with the most comfort possible when admitted for surgery of any kind. Our staff helps maintain your pet’s dental health with regular dental cleaning and polishing. During all anesthetic procedures, we carefully attend patients and use pulse-oximetry and blood pressure monitoring.


Our 3200 square-foot facility has separate feline and canine wards to ensure a quiet stay for hospitalized pets. Animal Doctors Veterinary Clinic is certified as a Cat Friendly Practice by the American Association of Feline Practitioners.  We are equipped to provide outstanding care for all our patients during inpatient and outpatient surgical and medical treatment with the following on-site technologies: radiography (X-Rays), endoscopy, ultrasonography, electrocardiography, pulse-oximetry and Doppler ultrasound. Cytologic, blood, fecal and other tests are performed in the clinic’s laboratory.
