Our Services


Our doctors will provide examinations to help prevent future illnesses and answer all of your questions. It is critical to check your dog’s health throughout its life stages, especially when they are young puppies. 

Even if your pet is healthy and shows no signs of illness, we recommend a health check-up at least once or twice a year.

Prevent Health Issues Through Wellness Checks


Dental health is vital to any animal. Taking care of your family pet’s teeth through regular dentist visits is an example of this type of care.

A 4-year-old, spayed female German Shepherd Dog named Leia was seen by Dr. Alcorn for ongoing skin disease. Upon presentation, Leia had severe areas of balding, flakes, scales, and scabs on her body as well as her face and ears. Discover how our veterinary team returned Leia to her family in good health. 

Care Animal Hospital Now Carries the Rabbit Hemorrhagic Disease Vaccine for Your Pet Rabbits!

RHDV2 is a highly contagious virus that infects wild and domestic rabbits and hares. The virus damages the liver leading to internal bleeding. The disease caused by the virus, simply called rabbit hemorrhagic disease (RHD), may kill up to 80% of infected animals. Due to the confirmed number of species already infected by the disease, it should be assumed that all rabbit and hare species in the United States are susceptible to RHDV2. Importantly, RHDV2 does not impact human health.

I’ve had a few pets and a few vets in my lifetime, but rarely do you find a vet team who are as caring, knowledgeable and efficient as in this facility.  I will bring both my pups here any time a visit is needed. The Dr’s diagnosis was spot on before the clinical results even came back as expected. Cost even reasonable for treatment. Thank you!
