Alexandria Animal Hospital is a 24-hour, full-service small animal veterinary hospital. We've been providing comprehensive medical, surgical and dental care to the community since 1942.
At Alexandria Animal Hospital we strive to offer not only sound advice, but also optimal veterinary care.
Our job is not only to treat your pet when they aren't feeling well, but also to help you learn how to keep your best friend happy and healthy.
We provide a broad spectrum of diagnostic procedures through in-house testing and the use of external laboratories. We also work closely with local practices when special diagnostic procedures are required. The facility includes a well-stocked pharmacy, in-hospital surgery suite, in-house digital x-ray capabilities, a closely supervised hospitalization area and indoor boarding kennels, with outdoor walking areas.
