Veterinarians Supporting the Family-Pet Bond

dog and human feet sleepingHighway Veterinary Hospital was founded on the belief that pets don’t just belong to families, but are valued family members that play a special role in every household. Our veterinarians and veterinary staff have dedicated more than forty years to strengthening the human-animal bond between the community’s pets and their owners through top-tier veterinary services and vigilant preventive health care.

Our full-service animal hospital is outfitted with the most advanced veterinary equipment and a passionate health care team that loves every individual animal entrusted in our care. We are proud of our comprehensive preventive care exams, multiple surgical options, thorough pet dental care, and wide-ranging diagnostic capabilities that include laboratory testing and digital imaging tools.

Beyond a commitment to surpassing customer expectations, Highway Veterinary Hospital’s most defining trait is the connection we make with every pet and their owner. All who arrive at our doors may enter as clients but walk out as family. Whether you’re a longtime member of the Highway Vet Family or a friend we have yet to meet, we believe it is our partnership with you that facilitates exceptional pet care.
