Arroyo Seco Animal Hospital

Established in 1993, our goal is to provide the finest in veterinary care for pets and livestock brought in to our facility, and to be kind and considerate to their owners.

Our facilities include two examination rooms for the smaller members of your family, a cattle shute, horse stocks, and large animal pens. Animals that need overnight care are babied in our “kennel” which at any time may be home to kittens, puppies, and adult animals recovering from surgery or simply being watched over as they heal. For details on our services, click on the “Services” link above.

At the clinic, we like to start young and help you give your pet a long and healthy life. We specialize not only in ongoing care of adult animals, but also in getting your young pets off to a good start. We will explain to you the vaccinations they need to keep them healthy, the food they need to grow strong, exercise, sleep, play, training, treats…everything you need to know to have a happy member of your family.

After getting off to a good start, an annual check-up can help keep your pet well, and allow us to catch anything early. Preventative measures are the best.

Our goal is to help you enjoy your pet’s health and well-being.
