The Higgins Animal Clinic is a beautiful 3-story state of the art clinic in the heart of the Lakeview area. It has been a well-respected fixture in the community for over 50 years. The current owner, Dr. Roberts, is the son-in-law of the original owner, Dr. Higgins. Dr. Roberts has been with the practice since 1971.
Services available include complete veterinary diagnostics and treatment, surgery and dentistry of companion animals including dogs, cats, and exotics. However, we do not treat birds or fish.
For new clients, the first examination of one cat, dog or ferret is complimentary.
Coffee and hot chocolate is served in our bright, airy waiting area, where pet parents can see our photo display of the newest pet children to become patients of our clinic, look out of our large atrium style windows and enjoy the atmosphere of our caring, dedicated staff.
Please give us a call today. We'd love to have you partner with us for your pet care needs!
