About us


Cocker spaniel

Ashworth Road Animal Hospital was established in 1957 and, for that entire time, has had one goal. That goal is to provide the best veterinary medical and surgical care possible for your pet. Through the years both knowledge and technology has advanced and we strive to stay on the leading edge to better serve you and your pet.

While knowledge and technology are very important, the personal attention that you will receive here will further support our complete care for your pet. We feel that it is best to work as a team to approach your pet’s health concerns and this will often include you in our care of your pet. We feel that preventative medicine is extremely important and we will recommend appropriate procedures to assure your pet’s health status.
