Veterinary Services in Altoona, Iowa

Our mission is to provide each patient with the same level of care and compassion as we would our own pets. We love what we do and are honored each time a client entrusts us with caring for their furry friends. The Altoona Veterinary Hospital doctors and staff are committed to following the highest standard of care in all the veterinary services we offer including wellness care, immunizations, parasite prevention and control, dentistry, surgery, internal medicine, dermatology, imaging, ultrasound, echocardiography, and behavior/nutritional counseling. Fulfilling that commitment begins with our experienced, caring, and knowledgeable medical team at our Altoona-based veterinary clinic.

Our doctors, technicians, and other support staff regularly attend continuing education meetings giving them the opportunity to stay current on the most recent developments in veterinary medicine such as new medications, behavior modification techniques, anesthetic protocols, end of life care and pain management strategies. Implementing that knowledge requires having accurate information in a timely manner. Access to in-house blood analyzers, digital radiography, ultrasound, dental radiography, cardiology/radiology specialist internet consultations, and other equipment allows our doctors to provide answers quickly to concerned pet owners.

We are here to service the cities of Altoona, IA, Des Moines, IA, Pleasant Hill, IA, Bondurant, IA, Runnells, IA, Mitchellville, IA, Ankeny, IA, Prairie City, IA, Colfax, IA, West Des Moines, IA and more!

An AAHA Accredited Veterinary Practice

As proof of the efforts we make to meet, or exceed, a high standard of care, we have proudly been accredited by the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) for over 30 years. A designation that requires a pet hospital’s procedures, facilities, diagnostic equipment, protocols, and staff to be evaluated against roughly 900 rigorous standards and has been accomplished by less than 20% of veterinary hospitals nationwide.
