Located in Columbia, Missouri right next to I-70, Horton Central is available to offer care for all different aspects of your pet’s life. Whether it be through our reproductive services that can help start a family or make sure one doesn’t pop up unexpectedly, or through our boarding service sheltering and caring for your pet while you’re away, we are here to help you. We will even be there during the twilight years of your companion’s life, with our unique at-home end of life care, making sure those last moments are as comfortable as possible.

In our office, we have posted the veterinarian’s oath, which we hold ourselves accountable to every day.

“Being admitted to the profession of Veterinary medicine, I solemnly swear to use my scientific knowledge and skills for the benefit of society through the protection of animal health and welfare, the prevention and relief of animal suffering, the conservation of animal resources, the promotion of public health, and the advancement of medical knowledge.

I will practice my profession conscientiously, with dignity, and in keeping with the principles of Veterinary medical ethics.

I accept as a lifelong obligation the continual improvement of my professional knowledge and competence.”
