About Us

At Horton Animal Hospital-Central, your pet’s health and longevity are our top priorities. Our passionate staff and top-quality care ensures your companions will live long, healthy and happy lives. We offer care for all different aspects of your pet’s life, including wellness exams, reproductive, boarding and end-of-life services.

We strive to live by the veterinarian’s oath and hold ourselves accountable to it every day. It hangs prominently in our office and reads:


The Veterinarian’s Oath

“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.”
