Our Services

Palmer Animal Hospital is a complete care facility offering the following veterinary services...View All Services

Preventative Care

Regular examinations and testing are important to identify and address health concerns in your pet earlier so we can try to resolve them sooner.


Your pet can be protected against many common diseases through vaccination. Ask us what vaccinations your pet should have.

Medical/Surgical Services

We can provide in-house medical care for sick pets if needed as well as perform most routine surgeries such as spays, neuter, growth removals, etc.


The majority of pets have dental tartar and periodontal disease by 3-4 years of age. Keeping your pet’s teeth clean will keep both their teeth and bodies healthier.

In-House Laboratory Testing

Our in house lab is able to process most routine bloodwork and urinalysis on the same day.

In-House Pharmacy

We stock many common medications for your pet’s care including heartworm preventative and flea/tick medications.

Prescription Diets

Our office carries Hill’s Science and Prescription diets as well as Purina and Royal Canin prescription diets. Many medical conditions can be improved or managed with a special diet.


We offer boarding as a service to our clients. Your pet must be up-to-date on their vaccinations.

Your Best Friends Deserve the Best Care
