New to VCA?

VCA Povar Animal Hospital is a well-established, full-service, small animal veterinary hospital providing comprehensive medical, surgical and dental care.

We provide a broad spectrum of diagnostic procedures through in-house testing and the use of external laboratories. We also work closely with local practices when special diagnostic procedures are required. The facility includes a well-stocked pharmacy, in-hospital surgery suite, in-house digital x-ray capabilities, a closely supervised hospitalization area, and indoor boarding kennels with outdoor walking areas.

We strive to offer not only sound advice, but also the best veterinary care, thus allowing you the enjoyment of your companion for a maximum number of years. Our job is not only to treat your pet when he or she isn't feeling well, but also to help you learn how to keep your best friend happy and healthy.

Pets are family, and the staff at VCA Povar Animal Hospital provides exceptional veterinary care with warmth and compassion. We have been servicing families in this area for decades, and we reciprocate this loyalty with a dedication and commitment to always maintain an enviting, client-oriented, and technologically superior hospital that works day in and day out for your pet's health and long-term well being.

And if things get very complicated, we are fortunate to have access to the nation's largest network of VCA veterinarians and board certified specialists. In a word: TEAMWORK!

Teamwork is a constant in our daily practice. From the very first person you speak to to the person who checks you and your pet out, our team of pet lovers works cohesively to create a warm and welcoming experience for both you and your pet.
