The Animal Center Veterinary Hospital is a full-service veterinary facility comprised of a modern hospital, a surgical unit with state of the art anesthesia monitoring equipment, digital radiology, and on-site laboratory. We provide 24 hour emergency response for the care of the community’s animals. Although most of our patients are dogs and cats, but we welcome birds, rabbits, ferrets, reptiles, and pocket pets.



The Animal Center Veterinary Hospital offers full service care with an in-house diagnostic lab, digital radiology, soft tissue and orthopedic surgery, dentistry, preventative care and inpatient treatment, as well as high quality pet foods.

Chemical analysis of a small blood sample can give the most complete evaluation of the overall body condition. We offer in-house analysis of samples to evaluate kidney, liver, thyroid and general health of the animal. Ultrasound, echocardiograms and endoscopy are available by referral at a nearby clinic.


Our state-of-the-art digital X-ray unit allows us to quickly evaluate orthopedic, reproductive and general health issues. Your pet’s X-rays are stored in digital format for easy retrieval and viewing.


Periodontal disease is the cause of 95% of all cases of bad breath. In advanced cases, it results in infected, foul-smelling, loosened teeth; massive, unsightly accumulation of tartar; even a loss of appetite due to painful gums. Signs such as diarrhea, vomiting and irritability may also be clues to the need for a dental cleaning. We offer dental specialty services such as prophylaxis, extractions, cavity fillings, teeth cleaning and polishing to maintain proper dental health.

Preventative Care
In order to keep your pet at its best, we provide preventative care for all stages of its life. Heartworm testing and preventative treatment can ensure a long life for your pet. Vaccinations and annual health screenings help extend your pet’s active life as a part of your family.

Pet Supplies
We stock the largest selection of Science Diet and Hill’s Prescription Diet pet foods in Helena. We also carry Royal Canin Veterinary foods and can special order other brands upon request. Diet counseling is available to identify the optimal food for your dog or cat.

Our small store also has other pet items, such as treats for cats and dogs, skin and hair conditioners, tooth care products, leashes and collars, and pet odor-eliminating candles.

The practice was established in the late 1960’s. Since that time it has served the residents of the greater Helena area with high quality, compassionate veterinary care. Combined, our doctors have over 60 years of veterinary experience. We provide the primary veterinary care for the Lewis & Clark Humane Society and for the City of Helena Animal Control.
