Ski Town Animal Hospital

We are passionate about our furry four legged clients
Fear Free Certified

Take the fear away from your pet! We offer Fear Free veterinary visits for your pet. We eliminate fear, anxiety, and stress, and create an experience that is better and safer for all involved, including your pets, owners, and veterinary health care teams. Make the Vet a fun place to go!


Dental disease can result in bad breath, painful chewing, and tooth loss. Bacteria under the gums can travel to the heart, kidneys, and liver. A professional dental cleaning is required to remove plaque and tartar from a pet’s teeth and to assess the health of the mouth. Your pet will love you for it!


Annual wellness exams give you a baseline for what is normal for your pet’s health so you can readily see any changes from the previous year. They lengthen your pet’s life expectancy by addressing issues early, before they become more serious, resulting in them being more difficult to treat. 

Emergency Care

Emergency vet services are a fundamental cornerstone of our commitment to comprehensive pet care. Your pet isn’t going to take “normal business hours” into consideration. Accidents do happen, and when disaster strikes, that is when you need a trained veterinary staff ready and able to help.

House Calls

There are a number of scenarios in which bringing your pet to the vet simply isn’t feasible. Perhaps your companion is too sick to make the trip or you have multiple pets and juggling several appointments is too much to handle. Or, maybe your pet experiences such intense vet-visit anxiety, that visits are stressful for you both.


Bringing a family member in for surgery can be nerve wracking. At Ski Town Animal Hospital, we know exactly what you’re going through because we’re pet parents too. Rest assured that we’ll do whatever it takes to ensure that your loved one’s procedure is as safe and stress-free as possible.

Nutrition & Weight

Let’s face it: the subjects of nutrition and weight control can be downright confusing, even for the most seasoned pet parent. If you need a little guidance in this area, you’re certainly not alone. More importantly, the team at Ski Town Animal Hospital is here to help!

Laser Therapy

Laser therapy is a non-invasive, painless treatment option that uses light to stimulate the body’s natural healing and pain control response. Through this innovative technology, your loved one can enjoy decreased pain, enhanced mobility and faster recovery periods. It can be used as an independent therapy or in conjunction with other treatment methods. 


When people become sick or injured, they go to the doctor, explain their symptoms and receive the appropriate care. With pets, it’s not always this straightforward. Because animals can’t speak, they aren’t able to tell us when something is bothering them. What’s more, many animals are able to mask the signs of illness, allowing it to develop and worsen undetected.

Critical Care

As a loving pet parent, you never want to see your four-legged family member in any kind of distress. Unfortunately, unexpected illnesses and sudden accidents happen. At Ski Town Animal Hospital, we want you to know that you’ve got a dedicated team of experienced professionals in your corner.

allergies & dermatology

There are many ailments that can affect a dog or cat’s skin, and the symptoms can be unpleasant. You don’t want your furry friend to suffer and neither do we!  Our professional allergy and dermatology services will help get your pet as healthy on the outside as on the inside.
