The care given at the hospital is always beyond reproach, I am very happy with central pet hospital.
The quality of service and care is EXCELLENT… I would recommend this clinic to my family and friends.
Love all of your front desk staff. They are the best. All of the veterinary staff that we have had experience with are top notch and highly trust them with the pets we love so much.
Our pets are family, though the cost of veterinary care has gone up considerably we will continue to provide the BEST care for our “family” whenever needed.
I highly recommend anybody who is in an emergency situation with their pet(s) to use this animal hospital!!!
The opportunity to visit my pet while a patient and the ease of getting reports from the nurses was helpful at putting me at ease while my beloved pet was cared for.
I knew that Smudge was in the best of care and it made leaving him there that much more bearable. I received prompt calls regarding his care and being able to visit him made me feel at ease. When staff greeted him with smiles and hugs that also made me comfortable knowing that they were treating him as one of their own.
Everyone and everything was friendly and professional.
The service from the beginning to the end of our visit was excellent.
I am so thankful to have the Central team caring for Jimmy. As with any hospital, human or pet, emergency care can be stressful. This visit stands out as an exemplar of Central’s quality care and dedication to pets and family.
Wonderful job, they made Bing feel part of their family and also took our feelings into consideration. We were very emotional and scared. We felt comfortable and so did our baby.
I have always been happy with the service and patient care at Central. I recommend them all the time.
Keep doing what what your doing!!!!
Everyone was kind and helpful. Thank you! I am recommending you to all of my pet owner friends!
I feel the care my cat received was excellent. I cannot say enough about how wonderful Dr. Brodeur was in caring for my cat. I want to send my heartfelt thanks to her, Dr. Albino who first saw my cat, and to all the caring and compassionate staff who took such good care of my Lily.
Our visit was great. All the staff was knowledgeable and friendly. The doctor was awesome with my Sadie.
Hard to improve on perfection!
You literally saved our dog’s life. I cannot say enough good things about the excellent and compassionate care we received at your hospital. Outstanding.
The vets at Central are very good. We like their approach to treating our dog.
Great staff and doctors who truly care about animals! Everyone is super friendly and the doctors make sure you understand what is going on with your pet.
Honestly, the visit couldn’t have been any better. All the way from the initial phone call to the discharge of my pet Dorian.

Central regularly provides these services on an inpatient and outpatient basis. Outpatient appointments are on a referral basis only. The department is overseen by Dr. Lance Rozear, a board certified radiologist.

We operate a total joint replacement center including procedures on the hip, elbow and knee in addition to repairs on cruciate tears and bone fractures.

Veterinarians that specialize in Internal Medicine have advanced knowledge of small animal endocrinology, gastroenterology, respiratory disease, infectious and immune-mediated disease, and diseases of the kidneys and lower urinary tract.
As in humans, hyperthyroidism is seen regularly in cats. A common cure for the condition is the treatment with radioactive iodine. When injected into a cat, the radioactive iodine is taken up into the thyroid tissue so it specifically effects that one body part. Complications are rare and treatment is frequently a complete cure.
Cats first have an exam with our Internal Medicine department to make sure they are good candidates for treatment. The pet is admitted to the hospital on a separate Monday and receives the injection that day. Typically cats need to stay at Central for three to four days due to radiation and then they are able to go home.
Our staff will discuss special protocols for at home after discharge to keep you and your pet safe. A couple weeks after leaving the hospital, you can return fully to your normal routine.
Our program is overseen by a Radiation Safety Officer and our staff receives regular training. In addition we are registered and guided by both state and federal agencies.
