Welcome to Radford Animal Hospital

Your Local Pet Care Experts

As a caring pet owner, you know that your pet is a special member of your family. You only want the best veterinary care for your animal. Finding a good veterinary hospital is an important part of prioritizing your pet's health. At Radford Animal Hospital, we believe in treating all of our furry patients with the utmost respect and professional care. Whether you're interested in an annual checkup, vaccines, or specialty care, our veterinarian is here to help your pet live a long, healthy, and happy life.

Scheduling an annual physical is one of the most important parts of keeping your pet healthy. We believe that the best time to prevent problems is before they start. At an annual checkup, our veterinarian is able to check your pet for signs of potential problems and work with you to create preventative care solutions. At your pet's annual checkup, we'll also update any necessary vaccines, talk with you about any changes in your pet's health or behavior, and talk about any concerns that you may have.

Radford Animal Hospital- Your Local Pet Care Experts

There's no doubt about it- animals are tough. Many pets have ways of hiding the fact that they are in pain. When a pet shows that something is hurting, it's likely that they've been in pain for quite some time. At a physical, our veterinarian is able to assess your pet's well being, checking them for any hidden areas that are causing them discomfort.

At Radford Animal Hospital, we offer a full range of pet care services to our patients. In addition to standard pet wellness appointments, we also offer vaccinations, a senior pet wellness program, behavioral health, nutritional counseling, microchipping, pet dental care, urgent care, pet surgery, diagnostics, grooming, and boarding. If your pet has an emergency during office hours, please call us right away. If an emergency occurs after office hours, please call Town & Country Vet Clinic at (540) 639-3891.
