At Roanoke Animal Hospital our mission is to help pets live longer, healthier, and happier lives with their families by providing compassionate, stress-free, premium veterinary care through advanced medicine, personalized services, and pet owner education.
Our high AAHA accredited standards enable us to provide the devoted care that your pet deserves. We know trusting your pet’s health with a stranger can be difficult, which is why we make our best effort to get to know you and your pet on a more personal level. We implement diagnostic imaging such as ultrasound, radiographs, and echocardiograms alongside laboratory services to provide pet parents with a well-defined diagnosis. Our veterinary office focuses on treating the issue at hand but doesn’t neglect additional health concerns a pet may be exhibiting. Our knowledgeable, friendly staff is here to provide a comprehensive medical examination while making the experience enjoyable.
We are located in Roanoke, VA, and conveniently located to the city of Roanoke, Vinton, Cave Spring, and Salem, VA. Roanoke is one of the top ranked mountain biking and hiking destination in the world. Offering miles of natural surface and paved trail systems for commuting, road cycling, mountain biking, hiking, and horseback riding.
