From the moment you enter our hospital, we strive to ensure you and your pet receive complete comfort and care.

Our hospital is open six days a week for wellness and emergency veterinary care services (during normal business hours). We also offer the convenience of home visits, pick up, drop off, and curbside services. In addition, we also offer boarding, grooming, and a Pups N Play daycare.

Our Services

Wellness & Prevention

Whether you’re welcoming a new puppy or kitten to the family or caring for a pet transitioning into their senior years, we’re here to ensure your pet receives the right care at the right time.


Caring for your pet’s teeth and gums is about much more than simply controlling bad breath or enhancing their appearance. Proper dental care is critical to your pet’s overall health and quality of life.

Surgical Services

Our doctors are highly skilled in performing veterinary surgical procedures while using the safest protocols, medications, and monitoring techniques available.

Internal Medicine

Our pet care services extend beyond routine wellness care and veterinary treatments to include internal medicine. Internal medicine focuses on the treatment of the internal body systems using non-invasive or minimally invasive testing, diagnosis, and treatment.


While identifying the symptoms may be easy, determining the cause of your pet’s dermatological issues and allergies often takes time, medical observation, and testing. To best serve our pet patients and clients, we work methodically to identify the source as quickly as possible and to limit excessive and costly treatments.


Providing exceptional veterinary care means equipping our doctors and staff with the latest in modern diagnostic equipment. Using these tools, we can ensure that each of our pet clients receive a fast, accurate diagnosis and treatment plan.

Pocket Pets and Exotic Pets

At Pets R Family Veterinary Hospital we know that just like dogs and cats, pocket pets and exotics also require specific health and wellness care. From wildlife and rabbits to snakes and iguanas, we can help ensure your pet receives the loving care and attention they deserve.

End of Life Care

Making the right decision regarding end of life care for your pet can be complicated and sometimes confusing. At Pets R Family, we’re here to help you navigate these difficult times with compassionate care and knowledge.
