Veterinarians recommend regular wellness exams for the same reason your physician and dentist recommend them – if you can detect a problem in its early stages, it's more likely to be treated and resolved with less expense, less difficulty and better success.

As the saying goes, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Vaccinations, heartworm prevention and routine deworming are important components of wellness care and can prevent diseases that are not only life-threatening, but very expensive to treat.



Vaccines help prevent many illnesses that affect pets. Vaccinating your pet has long been considered one of the easiest ways to help him live a long, healthy life. Not only are there different vaccines for different diseases, there are different types and combinations of vaccines. Vaccination is a procedure that has risks and benefits that must be weighed for every pet relative to his lifestyle and health. Your veterinarian can determine a vaccination regimen that will provide the safest and best protection for your individual animal.



Your pet deserves high-quality, stress-free surgical care. At Canyon Creek Animal Hospital, your pet receives state-of-the-art surgery from our team of compassionate, highly-trained veterinarians and veterinary technicians. The latest monitoring technology, fully-equipped surgical suites and advanced anesthetic equipment are used in order to make your pet's surgery as safe, comfortable, stress-free and pain-free as possible.



In the event of an emergency during our normal office hours please call ahead if possible and proceed directly to our practice. We may need to refer you to a local veterinary emergency facility if your pet requires emergency intensive care or surgery, or if 24 hour monitoring will be needed.

For after-hour emergencies, we advise that you contact the pet emergency center shown below.

Good News Everyone!



Dental health is a very important part of your pet’s overall health, and dental problems can cause, or be caused by, other health problems. Your pet’s teeth and gums should be checked at least once a year by your veterinarian to check for early signs of a problem and to keep your pet’s mouth healthy.


Our mission at Canyon Creek Animal Hospital is to provide the highest quality, compassionate, veterinary medical care in a friendly, relaxed setting for you and your pet. We treat every pet as it were our own.

We believe that a thorough physical exam is the foundation for determining the options to diagnosis and treat a pet's medical condition. Even animals that are healthy and just in for an annual check up still receive the full 14 step physical exam.  We then educate our clients on their pet's condition so they can make the decision on a diagnostic and treatment plan that works best for the whole family.

At this site, you will find information about our practice philosophy, our services, our wonderful staff members, as well as hospital hours and emergency referral centers.  We have added to our staff and now have fifteen employees!  We have four doctors currently here to serve you and your pets.
