We feel it is our responsibility to offer our clients the best veterinary medicine available for their pets, whether at our clinic or by providing needed referrals for care. We endeavor to treat our patients with compassion and excellent nursing care. It is our job to relieve suffering and pain, educate and provide preventative medicine, and to treat the sick and wounded. We hope to provide the community with quality long-term care for their companion animals.

A Note From The Doctors


各种男女gif过程动态图Mills River Animal Clinic was started in July 1988 by Jennie and Michael Hernandez. Our first building was a  trailer manufactured to be a veterinary clinic; it had one exam room. In July 1991, the present building was completed. The practice is considered a mixed-animal practice.

We see bovine — mostly dairy, small animals — dogs and cats, and smaller exotics, such as ferrets, rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, rats, mice and chinchillas.

We offer a wide range of small-animal veterinary services. We promote preventative medicine by recommending vaccination schedules, heartworm and intestinal worm preventatives, dental care, geriatric bloodwork and microchip placement.

We believe in routine spaying and castration of pets. We have the capability for in-house bloodwork and radiographs and do soft-tissue surgeries routinely. We do believe in referring cases to specialists when it is called for and have many contacts with excellent referral practices. We try to provide services for pets in similar fashion to how a general practitioner provides services in a family practice.
