We're pleased to offer the following services at Animal House Veterinary Hospital


Our appointment schedule is computerized and that allows us to quickly and efficiently make appointments for you and your pet.  Our receptionists and team members will attempt to accommodate all requests to the best of our ability.  Emergencies are accepted any time that the hospital is open for regular business hours.  If you feel you have an emergency with your pet, please call us or bring your pet to the hospital immediately.  If possible, it's best to call before coming in so that one of our staff members can assist you with your particular emergency.

Emergency & Urgent Care

We have veterinarians and staff personnel on duty for emergency support during certain hours every day of the week.  Our staff is trained and well-equipped to handle nearly any emergency or urgent care support that your pet may require. We see emergencies for established clients and specifically for patients that have been examined at Animal House Veterinary Hospital within the preceding 12-month period.  Usually our emergency teams consist of at least one veterinarian and one or more technicians working together to treat patients in a comprehensive and efficient manner.  Emergencies are unplanned by definition and can range from simple wound treatments to imminently life-threatening crises. If you feel that your pet needs emergency service, don't hesitate to call or to come in to our hospital immediately. It's always best to call ahead whenever possible so that a team member can advise you about potentially life-saving steps you may be able to implement immediately while our staff prepares for your arrival.

We're also available for urgent care when conditions aren't life-threatening. If you feel that your pet needs to be seen on an emergency basis before you're able to reserve an appointment slot, our veterinarians will do everything possible to fit you into our schedule.  When you arrive, our receptionist can give you an estimate for how long you may have to wait before meeting with one of our staff veterinarians.  In some cases, owners are able to leave their pet with us and we will attend to the patient at an appropriate time (usually at some point during that same day) depending on the urgency of the condition and whatever previously established appointment schedule is already in place.

Make-A-Wish makes wishes come true!!!

As many of you know, the Make-A-Wish foundation works to grant the wish of every child diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition. In the United States and its territories, on average, a wish is granted every 34 minutes. When we were presented with the opportunity to help the Make-A-Wish foundation grant Ms. Madison’s wish to receive a puppy, we were more than happy to help! Madison received a French bulldog puppy originally named Chubby - she later decided to change his name to Duke since she loves Duke mayonnaise. Dr. Kennedy agreed to donate the needed vaccinations, de-worming treatments, neuter surgery at the appropriate age, as well as a microchip thru Animal House. With the help of multiple vendors, we also received donations for items such as food, flea/tick prevention, heartworm prevention, shampoos, ear cleaners, and any needed diagnostics for the first year. Please keep this family in your prayers – as we all know, sickness can take a toll on any family but our hearts break for this family as they deal with the everyday expenses, emotions, and stresses that come with having a sick child. We are so glad that we were able to help & would like to send a special thanks to all of our vendors that donated towards this cause. We hope that Madison and her new friend “Duke” can have a long and happy life together!
