We at the Columbia City Veterinary Hospital are committed to continuing to provide care for your pets. During this time of crisis, our procedures have changed to allow for the best care, all while keeping our clients, patients, and staff healthy.
Following state and national veterinary guidelines, we are able to see sick and injured pets but must delay routine procedures (such as spays, neuters, routine vaccines at this time). We are asking individuals to call prior to scheduling appointments and filling prescriptions. To best serve you, we are providing curbside service to limit the spread of potential illnesses. Please call when you arrive, and we will provide further instructions.
Our hours right now have changed slightly as we will be closed daily from 11:30 AM – 1:30 PM for lunch and sanitation.
We wish you all to stay safe and healthy.

Once a year, or twice yearly for a senior pet, you should take your pet in for a check-up. This will include a full physical exam, including checking general health, ears, eyes, skin, mouth and teeth, and other body systems. Our doctor will check the health of your pet from head to tail!
Bring in any medical history you have of your pet when you come to our vet clinic. It’s best to keep a journal of your pet’s health throughout his or her life, including behavioral shifts. If you have something like this, share it with our team. If not, let us know everything that you think will be important. We will work with whatever information you currently have.
In some circumstances, Dr. Quinn will refer you to a specialist who has advanced expertise in areas such as internal medicine, dermatology, ophthalmology, or surgery.
