UPDATE AS OF 1/4/2021:
We are now accepting new clients again, on a limited availability basis. We may be booked out a few weeks/months because of this. With our current staffing we are unable to meet the demand and in discussion with several other practice owners, have discovered that this is the case with many other hospitals. We have compiled a list of practices that may be able to see your pet. THIS IS NOT GUARANTEED, and please let them know that we referred you:

Parrish Creek Veterinary Hospital: 801-298-2014
Willowcreek Pet Center: 801-942-0777
Brickyard Animal Hospital: 801-486-0123 – Does not see birds or reptiles

  • Annual/Semi-Annual Wellness Exams
  • Husbandry Evaluations (included with all comprehensive exams)
  • Prepurchase Consultations
  • New Pet Exams (include detailed husbandry assessment)
  • Spay and Neuter Surgery (Our quoted fees for this may be higher than others. This is because pain medication is always required, it is not an option that we will try to sell to you later. Would your pet want it to be optional?)
  • General and Orthopedic Surgery
  • Vaccinations (ferrets, foxes, pigs, rabbits)
  • Dental Care (Especially for ferrets, rabbits, rodents)
