A full-service, primary care veterinary clinic for cats and dogs

As of May 15, the Pet Health Center will return to operating out of its own facility, which is located at 125 Veterinary Loop. Thank you to all of our clients for your patience and understanding as we completed our renovations to our building. We look forward to serving you in our newly updated space.

Our Pet Health Center offers routine veterinary care for your four-legged friend including preventative medicine and basic surgical care. We take a team approach to each case with our clinicians, senior veterinary students, and staff all working together to offer your pet the best care possible.

Primary Care Services

  • Annual Checkups
  • Vaccinations
  • Dentistry

What to Expect

Upon arrival, you and your pet will be met by one of our senior veterinary students who will gather your pet’s medical history and conduct a thorough physical examination. The student will then consult with one of our clinicians who is in charge of your pet’s medical care and will provide suggestions and guidance. A care plan along with a cost estimate is then developed and presented to you.

Our team approach ensures that your pet receives the highest-quality care possible, however it also means that your appointment may take longer than it would at a traditional primary care clinic, so please plan accordingly.
