As a result of our dedicated animal hospital staff, we have developed longtime friendships with local pets and pet owners. We task ourselves with providing outstanding care and going the extra mile for our pet owners.

Our veterinary hospital offers boarding, wellness care, surgery, dental, nutritional counseling, pet bathing, and emergency vet care. We purchased the practice in 1989 and, after outgrowing the original facility, we opened our current animal hospital in April 2007. We are proud of our modern and state of the art animal hospital. Our clinic was designed to have an open layout that allows pet owners to view most all procedures and exams that are taking place. We want pet owners to be confident in our services and care, as well as reassured by this open hospital plan.

Remember, at Fairview Hospital for Animals, your pets are our passion!
I visit Fairview Animal Hospital at least once a week for a few of my fur-babies to receive laser therapy and the ENTIRE staff always shows genuine concern for my babies as well as me. They are always completely honest in the care they believe my pets need and only suggest treatments that they firmly believe would help my babies comfort. I have six dogs and two cats who all have their own issues and they know them all by name, know what their problems are and cater to their individual needs. The best part of this staff, is that every single one of my babies thoroughly enjoys their visits which is most important to me.
