Meet Our Newest Patients!

The purpose of this page is to show off our newest patients. These are mostly cute puppies and kittens, with the occasional rabbit, small mammal, lizard, or turtle. Check back regularly to see who's new!  If your pet isn't on this page, we apologize--we occasionally have to remove some pictures that have been up for a while to make room for new ones.

If we took your pet's picture and you don't see it here but would like it here, just call the office (or email us at VHAH@Comcast.net) and let us know. We'll do our best to oblige.
