Caring for pets... and their people, too.

Here at VCA Durant Road Animal Hospital and Pet Resort, your pet's health is our top priority. We are committed to providing high-quality, professional care and genuine personal service. We also now offer doggy day care services for your pet while you are away.

We pledge to instill in our clients trust and confidence that their pets will always receive compassionate, gentle care, and the highest standard of veterinary medical service available.

At VCA Durant Road Animal Hospital, our focus is on the "prevention" side of medicine. Did you know that many diseases can be treated successfully if caught early by simple, routine wellness testing? And did you know that our pets can develop such "human" diseases as diabetes, thyroid issues and liver disease?

Thankful for the thoughfulness

I wanted to let everyone know that Dr. Allen showed me that there are still people out there that do truly care. I wasn't so lucky with the outcome of my beloved little girl "Caley". However, Dr Allen was very thoughtful during my time of grief. He went beyond the call of most vets. He truly shows that he cares for the animals and the human loved ones left behind. I would definitely recommend that if you are looking for a great Vet. he is definitely the man you would want to be there for your pets.
