Palo Duro Animal Hospital is a well-established, full-service, small animal veterinary hospital providing comprehensive medical, surgical and dental care.

We provide a broad spectrum of diagnostic procedures through in-house testing and the use of external laboratories. We also work closely with a board certified surgeon who comes in periodically to do specialty procedures, that typically would be referred to a specialty practice in Albuquerque , Dallas ect.. The facility includes a well-stocked pharmacy, in-hospital surgery suite, in-house x-ray capabilities and a closely supervised hospitalization area.

At Palo Duro Animal Hospital we strive to offer not only sound advice, but also optimal veterinary care, thus allowing you the enjoyment of your companion for a maximum number of years. Our job is not only to treat your pet when he or she isn't feeling well, but also to help you learn how to keep your best friend happy and healthy and as free of pain as possible.

Directly across the street from the Happy State Bank & next door to the Hudspeth House Bed & Breakfast. Appointments are recommended and can be made by giving us a quick call during business hours. Emergencies are first & top priority, and thank you for your understanding in this. We do see walk-in's as time permits, but we do ask for your patience as you may have an extended wait until we have an available room to take you & your pet into to be seen by one of our doctors.

We are happy to offer a number of resources that enable you to learn about how to take better care of your pets. Please feel free to browse our site, particularly the informational articles. The best veterinary care for animals is ongoing nutrition and problem prevention, so becoming knowledgeable about preventative pet care is essential to the ongoing success of your animal’s health.

  • "Wow! Thanks to all the staff at Anderson Vet Clinic. I feel like you all truly love what you do! My kitty, Lola and I always have such a pleasant experience when we come in. Fortunately, it’s usually just for a check-up, but I would not leave Lola in anyone else’s hands but yours. Thank you for your caring commitment!"
