Who we are
"Brutus and I have been going to Stephenson Veterinary Hospital for over 15 years. Even though we don't go very often, I'm delighted that they know and acknowledge us with a smile every time we walk in the door. I get to see the same Veterinarian every time and I am confident that they know my pet's unique personality, medical history, my concerns and my love for my little guy. At the Stephenson Veterinary Hospital we feel like extended family, not customers."
...Loretta Taylor, Brutus' Mom

With more than 150 years of combined experience in animal care, the knowledgeable staff of Stephenson Veterinary Hospital believes that the best companion animal care can be achieved through continued growth and the adoption of the most current practice of veterinary medicine and health care.

We will always strive to:
   ● Operate in a family friendly and professional manner
   ● Create lasting relationships with our clients and their pets
   ● Carry out all procedures and diagnostics to the best of our ability, knowing when it is necessary to recommend a specialist who can treat the exact needs of our patients
   ● When possible, provide programs to clients with limited financial resources that ensure that their pets lead happy lives
