Our Services

We’re a full-service animal hospital.

We’re a full-service animal hospital.

We see patients by appointment only, Monday thru Saturday. Call us and speak to one of our caring front desk staff members to schedule your pet’s appointment today! Appointments can also be made online. We strive to accommodate all appointment requests to the best of our ability. Emergencies are welcome during normal business hours. If you feel you have an emergency with your pet, please call us or bring him/her to the hospital immediately (it is best to call while you’re on your way so a doctor or experienced nurse can be appropriately ready for you and your pet).

Emergency and Urgent Care Policy:

We have a veterinarian and personnel on duty 6 days a week who are trained and equipped to handle any urgent need your pet may have. Usually, an emergency team consists of at least one veterinarian and several nurses working together to save a pet’s life. Emergencies can be things such a snail bait poisoning, hit by a car, and chocolate ingestion. If you ever feel that your pet needs emergency treatment do not hesitate to call or come in immediately. We are also available for urgent care when the condition is not life-threatening, but you feel your pet needs to be seen before you are able to get an appointment. Our veterinarians will work to “squeeze” you in between scheduled appointments or you may leave your pet in our care and the doctor will call you between appointments to discuss your concerns and his/her recommendations.

When you arrive, you’ll meet with a nurse for a preliminary evaluation and then we will keep you updated on your pet’s status.


Full surgical facilities for:

  • Emergency procedures (foreign body removal, cystotomies, etc)
  • Routine/elective surgeries (spay, neuter, mass removal, etc)
  • Orthopedic procedures


We provide estimates for all treatments and procedures. We encourage owners to request an estimate for treatment if one was not provided. Academy Animal Hospital accepts payment via cash, check (with valid ID), MasterCard, Visa, Discover, American Express, and Care Credit. So that we can continue to provide you high-quality service utilizing the best medical technologies, we request that payment be made at the time services are rendered. In-house payment arrangements are not available at this time.


Academy Animal Hospital offers discounted services to all military, senior citizens and local area rescue groups. Pre-approval is required to qualify for the rescue group discounts. Please call us for more information.

    Wellness Exams

    When it comes to a pet’s comprehensive exam it is much like a human checkup except instead of head to toe, we call it snout to tail.
