Our Phoenix Veterinarians Welcome You

Pets are our passion! Our Phoenix veterinarians Dr. Ross Babcock, Dr. John Samuelson, Dr. Tom Boggess and everyone else here at Palo Verde Animal Hospital place a huge emphasis on preventative care to help pets stay healthy and avoid getting sick or hurt in the first place. We do this through comprehensive regular checkups from the time your pet is a puppy or a kitten and all the way through his or her senior years. Regular diagnostic tests at our in-house laboratory check for parasites so they can be eliminated quickly and we always stress regular flea and tick prevention and heartworm prevention. Pet vaccinations and spay and neuter surgeries are also important preventative procedures. We also believe educated pet-owners have healthier pets, so we provide you with vital information about pet dental care, nutrition, exercise, Valley Fever avoidance and other pet safety issues.

We understand, however, that even with all of the preventative care in the world, things happen. Pets get sick and injured. When this happens, Palo Verde Animal Hospital in Phoenix is ready to help. With a state-of-the-art surgical suite including laser surgery, an in-house pharmacy and laboratory, digital radiology and a fully-equipped intensive care unit, our veterinarian can handle any pet emergency or illness. If your pet is in trouble, call us right away!

In addition to preventative and emergency care, Palo Verde Animal Hospital in Phoenix also provides many other services to enhance your pet’s health and wellness on every level. We stress regular pet dental checkups and teach pet owners how to brush their pets’ teeth at home. We have guest lodgings for fun, safe and comfortable pet boarding when you need to go out of town without your pet. We also provide pet grooming, which not only helps your pet look and smell good, but can help us catch skin conditions and other health concerns before they become advanced.

Our Palo Verde Animal Hospital team is committed to providing excellent veterinary healthcare for your pets! Peruse our website for in-depth pet health information. And to schedule an appointment, please call us today at 602-944-9661! We look forward to serving you!

At Palo Verde Animal Hospital, we treat your pets like the valued family members they are.
