We regularly treat dogs, cats, rabbits, ferrets, rodents, and backyard poultry. We understand the importance of the special bond that you share with your pets no matter what their size or shape.
Above all, we specialize in relationships. We serve as an extension of our clients’ families, creating unique relationships with each individual, providing an environment of mutual trust and respect, and providing outstanding care for our patients as if they were our own family members. Whatever unique role your pets may play in your life, we are dedicated to helping you care for them.

Wellness & Preventive Care
It’s important to find a family doctor who you can trust to keep you and your family healthy through the years. We take great joy in being a part of your pets’ lives from the first puppy or kitten visit through their senior years. We strive to give you the education necessary to make informed decisions about your pets’ care.
Our veterinarians routinely perform an array of soft tissue surgical procedures including spays, neuters, mass removals, cystotomy/bladder stone removal and exploratory surgeries, as well as a number of other soft tissue surgeries. For orthopedic surgeries and advanced soft tissue surgeries, we collaborate with a team of board-certified surgeons who perform most of the procedures at our facility.
St. Francis Animal Hospital is unique in the community. We strive to provide comprehensive care for our patients. In addition to our state-of-the-art traditional veterinary care that you’ve known for years, we are pleased to now offer laser therapy, and Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM) including acupuncture, food therapy, and herbal therapy.

Everything was amazing as always here!
Employees are always very friendly and polite. They were very efficient with the appointment and the social distancing guidelines were well laid out and easy to follow. Definitely recommend this location for Vet services!

The curbside service was so convenient, I don’t think you could’ve made my visit any better!
This is the only veterinarian hospital we’ve ever taken our dog to. They have been caring for him since he was weaned. The staff is professional, responsive, and caring. I highly recommend them.

Our 2 dogs and 2 rabbits all go to St. Francis Animal Hospital.
All of the doctors and nurses there are very knowledgeable and well-educated. They are always helpful, kind, caring, compassionate, and always smiling. The new curb-side appointments are yet another example of how well they work. Thank you all so very, very much!
