At Village Gate Animal Hospital & Pet Resort, the most important thing we can ever aim for is keeping your pet happy and healthy. It’s the reason each one of us comes to work every day, and why we dedicate countless hours to our craft. We are passionate about the animals that we care for, and are committed to providing each one of them with the quality care they need to enjoy as many years of good health as possible. We don’t just want to be there for you when your pet is sick; rather, we want to be there with you, by your side every step of the way, to help keep your companion healthy throughout the course of his or her life. That’s why we’ve developed such a comprehensive system of care – to provide for every need your pet may have along the way.

While we place a strong emphasis on wellness care and preventative medicine, because we believe this lays a foundation for a lifetime of good health, we are also prepared to step in and handle any medical, dental, diagnostic or surgical need that may arise. Our hospital and staff are equipped to perform necessary diagnostic testing and to treat your pet as an out patient, or to admit them for hospitalization as needed. We offer medical care for all aspects of your pet’s health including cardiology, gastroenterology, internal medicine, dermatology, ophthalmology, emergency care and more.

Along with our comprehensive animal health care services, we also offer full service boarding in our posh Pet Resort, doggie daycare to keep your four-legged friend occupied while you’re busy at work, and professional grooming in our Pet Salon. The reason we’ve incorporated all of these other services is to provide you, our most valued asset, with all of the care, treatment options and services you’ll ever need to keep your pet happy and healthy, both inside and out. We’re also the only hospital in the area that offers care for exotic pets, making us the go-to resource for complete pet care in Grandview and Upper Arlington.

All of these services are offered in a way that is as convenient as possible. We respect your busy schedule and are happy to accommodate you by offering extended hours, including Saturdays and Sundays. You also have the option of dropping your pet off to receive care while you go about your day. Once your pet’s exam is complete, we’ll contact you to discuss the results and arrange for you to pick them up. Accessing quality veterinary care has never been easier!

We look forward to welcoming you both to our clinic, and hope for the opportunity to work with you for many years to come!

Wellness & Vaccinations

Our companion animals are only with us for a precious span of time – much shorter than we’d like. That’s why it’s so important that we take every measure to extend the time we get to share with them, and to make those extra years as happy and healthy as possible. Routine wellness care helps us to achieve this goal because it allows us to both manage the current health of your pet, and to monitor their ongoing wellbeing for any changes. Regular checkups provide us with the opportunity to detect the signs of illness or disease in its earliest stages, so we can address it right away, before it has the chance to progress. This early detection and disease prevention can add years to your pet’s life and vastly improve the quality of those years. Your pet deserves the best chance at enjoying a long, healthy life. Help improve the odds by committing to ongoing wellness care.

Nutrition & Weight Management

What your pet eats, how much and how often, can have a major impact on his or her overall health and wellbeing. The right nutrition can improve performance, promote ongoing good health and even help manage existing medical conditions to minimize symptoms and improve quality of life. Weight is also an important factor. Animals that are just a few pounds overweight are at a greater risk of developing serious, sometimes life threatening diseases. So, what can you do to help? Seek the advice of an expert. Our staff is skilled and experienced in all aspects of animal nutrition and can provide you with the guidance you need to get your pet on the right path toward a healthy lifestyle. We can develop a customized diet and exercise plan that will meet all of your companion’s nutritional needs and help keep them fit and strong. Let us help bring out the very best in your animal friend.

We’ll work with you and your animal companion to get to the root of the problem so we can develop a plan to work toward a solution. Through patience, determination and proven behavior modification techniques, we’ll arm you with everything you need to overcome negative behaviors and develop your pet into the calm, balanced and well behaved member of the family we know they’re capable of becoming.

When we are sick, we have the ability to go to the doctor, explain what’s wrong and receive the appropriate treatment. When our animals become ill, or have suffered an injury, it’s much more challenging to figure out what’s wrong. Because pets can’t speak, they can’t tell us what’s wrong, where it hurts or what their symptoms are. What’s more, many animals have a high tolerance for pain and can mask the signs of illness or injury for a long time. It’s up to us, as pet owners and veterinary professionals, to recognize that a problem may exist and take the appropriate measures to address that problem in a timely manner. At Village Gate Animal Hospital & Pet Resort, we rely on veterinary diagnostics to help us achieve this goal. These tools, such as blood work, urinalysis and radiology (x-ray), allow our experienced doctors to learn exactly what’s happening inside your pet’s body so we can quickly and accurately diagnose and treat whatever is ailing them, improving the chances of a positive outcome.

You wouldn’t go days, weeks, months or years without brushing your teeth, right? Well, your pet’s dental health is just as important. In fact, if not regularly addressed, plaque and tartar can build up on the teeth and bacteria can form in the mouth, increasing the risk of your pet developing dental disease. You want to keep your pet happy and healthy, and dental care is a good place to start. Village Gate Animal Hospital & Pet Resort offers a full range of professional pet dentistry services, including preventative care, like brushing and polishing, as well as the treatment and management of existing oral health problems. Even if you’ve never given your pet’s teeth a second thought, it’s never too late to start! Let us work with you to help your pet achieve a clean, healthy smile for life!
