We are a FULL service veterinary clinic.
While many small family owned offices are becoming corporate owned practices we remain a locally owned and operated veterinary clinic. We provide affordable dental care to dogs and cats but we are also a full service regular veterinary office. We offer wellness care, preventative care, parasite screening, diagnostics, medicine and surgery. This is why we are changing our name to Union Animal Hospital. This is more reflective of the full service veterinary care we provide to our dog, cat and pocket pet patients. Rest assured we have no affiliations with any corporate owned veterinary hospitals we are 100% locally owned and operated.
Dr. Sutton's First Patient- Her Beloved Tami (10/1995-10/2012)
Union Animal Hospital was started in 2013 by local veterinarian Dr. Linda Crider. In 2015 Dr. Crider decided to sell the Practice to Dr. Linsey C. Sutton. Dr. Sutton liked the concept Dr. Crider started but wanted to take it to the next level by offering affordable full service veterinary care. Dr. Sutton officially took over on April 1st 2015.
In the Fall of 2018 we began to start the process to change our name to Union Animal Hospital. This change has been a long time coming as we have grown from a simple dental only office to a full service veterinary clinic. Our hopes are to continue our growth so that we can further increase our availability to our wonderful clientele.
We strive to be Affordable but do not want you to assume that means we are cheap or a low cost high volume office. We are not able to be a non profit company as that restricts what we can provide to our clients. This means we don't get the tax breaks of a non profit, which is a bummer, but we also are not restricted on the services we provide or who we provide them too. Of course the definition of affordability varies slightly by interpretation but what it means to us is that we strive to provide the fairest possible price for the veterinary services we offer while still ensuring we are able to go above and beyond while caring for you pet's. Veterinary care is not inexpensive when done well and while we want to be as affordable as we can we do not want to take unnecessary risks that may jeopardize your pet's health and safety. Sadly in this day and age the costs of veterinary care are skyrocketing thanks to pharmaceutical costs, taxes and general costs of doing business. This means that we have to adapt but we work hard to navigate this complicated aspect of our veterinary medicine to try to help you afford the high quality veterinary care we offer. The quality of the work we do and the safety of your pet are a priority at our office. With that in mind please remember that when comparing veterinary care between offices it is not apples to apples. Not all offices offer the same techniques, anesthetics or monitoring. While we strive for affordability we promise to never compromise your pet's care, health and safety to be cheaper. You can trust that we are providing you and your pet's with the highest possible care at the most affordable price possible.
New Location - We Are Moving...Someday Soon
Ok so you have probably heard we are moving...We are! Though the steps to get our new location ready have taken longer than we hoped. We are working hard to get our new space ready for our move. This transition is taking much longer than we had hoped and we appreciate your patience while we get all the kinks worked out. This move will be well worth it. Our new space will be more comfortable for our clients, staff and most importantly our patients. We have leased a larger space at 2225 E Sprague Ave (only a short distance from our current location) that will better accommodate our patients, clients and growing business. The new office will be more comfortable and spacious. We will have 5 exam rooms, larger lobby space, a larger treatment area, larger surgical suite, more accommodating patient wards and all of this will help to reduce wait times for clients and streamline your pet's care. We look forward to sharing this new venture with you. We ask that you be patient with us while we work through this transition.
