Emerson Animal Hospital welcomes you to our website!

Drs. Emerson and Frey and the staff of Emerson Animal Hospital treat most small animals from dogs and cats to birds, reptiles, and pocket pets, all of the smaller mammals.

In business 44 years and with staff veterinary and pet health experience totaling well over 100 years.......

We see thousands of patients each year and care for pets needing all types of veterinary services.  For cases we feel will be better served by specialists, we refer.  We also consult with other veterinarians, if needed, to make certain that we are offering the best care to your pet.

And, we are often asked to aid other veterinarians through consultations to help pets being treated at other clinics. 

At Emerson Animal Hospital, we realize the pets we treat are members of someone's family.

We are your other family doctors.
