We are honored and proud to be a partner in your pet's healthcare team. As pet owners ourselves, we believe that preventative care with wellness exams are the keys to your pet living a longer, healthier, and happier life.

As a full-service veterinary office, we offer state-of-the-art testing and diagnostics, routine and advanced surgical procedures, and many other specialties and services to provide your pet with the best possible care.

As an American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) accredited facility, Firetower Animal Clinic regularly undergoes evaluations to ensure that we meet or exceed AAHA's standards of care.

These standards cover nearly every aspect of our hospital, including surgery, exam facilities, patient care, cleanliness, client service, emergency services, diagnostic imaging, and anesthesiology. Only 15% of animal hospitals in the United States and Canada are accredited by AAHA, which is recognized worldwide as the benchmark for quality care in veterinary medicine.
