About Us

Harbor Veterinary Hospital is a well-established, full-service, small animal veterinary hospital providing comprehensive medical, surgical and dental care.  We work closely with the pet owner to develop a plan for the best treatment available, while remaining sensitive to the owner's budget.   Our Puppy and Kitten protection packages include fecal analysis, deworming, all recommended vaccinations and  a comprehensive physical exam to start your new companion off right in life.  We  offer free first exam for pets adopted from a shelter or recognized 501c3 rescue organization.

Microchipping is recommended to help your pet get home if he or she is lost without collar ID.  If your pet does not already have a microchip, our doctors can place one in a simple inexpensive 3 minute procedure at your first office visit.

We are able to diagnose and treat your dog or cat's illness or injury using digital and digital dental xrays, on line consulting,  in-house laboratory testing and the use of external laboratories. We also work closely with specialists when more complicated diagnostic procedures and treatment plans are required. Our hospital includes a well-stocked pharmacy, in-hospital surgery suite, in-house x-ray capabilities, a closely supervised hospitalization area, and indoor animal housing with outdoor walking areas for dogs.

For complicated cases and  for emergencies when we are closed, we offer referral to several area hospitals that employ board certified specialists in cardiology, dentistry, ophthalmology, dermatology, internal medicine, surgery and oncology.  Our doctors will help you decide what level of care you wish to provide your pet, and we will help you negotiate the complicated and potentially expensive decisions you may need to make.
