Our number one goal is to provide outstanding veterinary care to your pet while building a foundation of respect and trust with you.

Compassionate – Understanding – Dedicated – Professional: These are just some of the ways in which the Rocky Point Animal Hospital has been described by our many clients. Established over 30 years ago, we are conveniently located in the heart of the Rocky Point business district. We pride ourselves in being the best at combining the highest quality veterinary care with the natural compassion and understanding you and your pets deserve. Our hospital has evolved into a progressive, flexible care center that tailors its services to the unique needs that you and your companions may have. We emphasize pain management and consider it a top priority in our patient care.

Rocky Point Animal Hospital has 3 full time veterinarians, and a large support team. Our experienced staff is diverse, and we maintain a commitment to quality. Digital x-rays, on-site laboratory diagnostics, and complete paperless record keeping, enable us to meet or exceed the profession’s service standards in medicine, surgery, and emergency care. We also provide and emphasize wellness plans, senior pet care, early detection of disease and preventative medicine. Our progressive approach to spay and neutering, and dental health ensures that your pet will receive the best possible comfort and safety while staying at our hospital.

In addition, each team member has their own unique talents and personalities, enabling us as a whole to touch on those special needs that you may want to address, such as canine behavior, special feline medicine, and wildlife interests. Beyond our professional expertise, you will not only feel confident that your pet is receiving the best veterinary care, you will also know that we understand and promote the importance of that special connection between you and your companion – another top priority at our hospital.
