We're pleased to offer the following services in our Midvale Veterinary Hospital:
Wellness Care and Vaccinations
We provide 30 minute wellness exams for our patients and clients. We feel that this allows our veterinary staff the time required to ensure a complete and thorough examination and also time for answering all your questions. It also allows time for discussing wellness and preventive measures that are specifically designed for your pet, including preventative care, wellness testing and parasite control.
Vaccine protocols are designed specifically for each individual patient using the most current information and vaccines available. Our vaccines are chosen based on their safety and ability to provide protection. Different life stages and exposure warrants choosing different vaccines.

Our receptionists and team will attempt to accommodate all requests to the best of our ability. Walk-ins and emergencies are accepted anytime our clinic is open. If you feel you have an emergency with your pet, please call us or come to the hospital immediately. If possible it is best to call before coming in so that a staff member can advise you on your particular emergency.
We have a veterinarian and personnel on duty 6 days a week who are trained and equipped to handle any urgent care your pet has. Usually an emergency team consists of at least one veterinarian and several technicians working together to save a pet's life. Emergencies can be things such a snail bait poisoning, hit by car, and chocolate ingestion. If you ever feel that your pet needs emergency treatment do not hesitate to call or come in immediately. If possible it is best to call before coming in so that a team member can advise you on your particular emergency.
