At Phelps Veterinary Hospital, we offer a wide range of pet care services to help keep your dog, cat, or small pet healthy throughout their entire life. We emphasize preventative medical care with the ultimate goal of preventing, rather than treating, health concerns. We have the knowledgeable staff and up-to-date equipment to handle most small animal cases. Count on us for services like orthopedic diagnostics and soft tissue surgery, medical and dental services, telephonic electrocardiography, and diagnostic capabilities which encompass digital x-ray and ultrasound. In addition, we have adequate space for boarding our client's animals in our air-conditioned facility. Most of all, you’ll be treated to the compassionate care, sincere service, thorough approach, and fair prices that you deserve.
