Welcome to Mission Animal and Bird Hospital!

Our veterinary staff is dedicated to caring for your furry, feathered, or scaled family members with the same attention and love we give to our own pets.

From our cheerful welcome when you walk in the door, to the professional, compassionate attention your pet receives from our veterinarians and nursing staff – you’ll know you’re in the right place. Our facility was honored as the Veterinary Hospital of the Year and we're now open 24/7 for emergencies!

Everyone at Mission Animal & Bird Hospital understands, from our own experience, the special bond that forms with our furry and feathered friends.  We’re committed to providing top-notch medical, surgical, and dental care. We also help your pet live a long, happy life by also offering ongoing education and support – whether it’s training your puppy, caring for your aging cat, keeping your bird healthy, or the special needs of reptiles and small companions such as rabbits, ferrets, and rats.

It’s my personal honor to welcome you to the Mission Animal & Bird Hospital, and to offer you and all of our visitors the most excellent care possible.

~Bob Cartin, DVM

  Here's what we have to offer your pet!
