Welcome to St Francis Animal Hospital

for those who demand the very best of veterinary care for
their dogs, cats, and exotic pets


In order to continue to provide exceptional care to our existing clients, we are not accepting new clients at this time. Have you been a client of St. Francis in the past, or are you a current client who has added a new pet to your family? We are happy to see your new pet! Please continue to watch our website and social media for any updates to our new client policy.


Beginning Monday, January 3rd, we returned to curbside service due to the recent spike in COVID-19 cases locally. When you arrive at St Francis, please call the designated line on the parking space signs for Appointments to reach our concierge team. A team member will collect some information from you and will inform a staff member that your pet is ready. The staff member will come out to your vehicle to escort your pet into the clinic. When your pet’s exam is finished, the doctor will call you to discuss exam findings and any recommendations. Your pet will be returned to your vehicle, along with any medications, food, and/or preventatives. Your payment will be collected over the phone, or you are welcome to pay with cash or check.

Pets who are being seen for quality of life consultations or euthanasia may be accompanied into the clinic by two people.

Technician appointments, drop off appointments, and surgery check-ins will remain curbside. Medication and food pick-ups will also remain curbside. Please call the appropriate number on the sign at your parking spot when you arrive and a staff member will assist you.

We are located on a busy street. For your pet’s safety, we would like dogs to have a well-fitting collar and to be leashed. We will apply a second slip lead for extra security. Cats, small mammals, and birds should be safely contained in a secure carrier.

For the latest information regarding COVID-19, please visit our website’s News/Blog or Facebook page.

Thank you so much for your continued support and partnership throughout this pandemic. We are so grateful to have the amazing clients and patients that we do!

Our Services

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!
