This dedication to service is why our practice has become so well-known and respected across the dog veterinary industry.

A Comprehensive Approach to Canine Veterinary Medicine

We understand that a dog veterinarian is only as good as their ability to successfully prevent, diagnose, and treat whatever ailment a dog may face. Equally important is our ability to listen and communicate well with owners to ensure they understand their dog’s health concerns and how to make the best choices for their dog. This is why our dog hospital is capable of handling any procedure, including preventive care, medical diagnosis, and emergency surgery.

We specialize in the following dog health services for dogs of all ages, breeds, and circumstances, including:

  • Allergy Testing: While not usually life-threatening, dogs’ allergies cause discomfort and should be treated.

An Emphasis on Dog Nutrition

At Elko Veterinary Clinic you will find that our veterinarians and staff place an emphasis on the importance of proper nutrition for all phases of your dog’s life. Whether your dog is a puppy, adolescent, adult, or senior, each stage of a dog’s life comes with some special nutritional considerations.

Our veterinarians are here to help you understand your dog’s nutritional needs, including:

The best canned or kibble diet for the breed, age, and activity level

Items ok to add to your dog’s food – i.e some cooked veggies
Healthy dog snacks
What to avoid feeding your dog

We can also help create a custom dog nutrition program, taking into consideration things like breed, age, size, physical fitness, allergies, and medical conditions. As with humans, proper dog nutrition can be both preventive and sometimes curative, as a balanced diet is essential for both supporting and maintaining optimal health. Of course, your dog cannot choose their own diet, so the burden of making good health choices is on you. Understanding your dog’s nutritional needs is an integral part of your responsibility to ensure they lead a healthy and happy life for many years to come.

Dog Surgical Options When Necessary

An important aspect of operating a dog hospital is being fully equipped and prepared to perform dog surgery for all kinds of situations. We realize that no one wants to think about their dog needing surgery. However, if such an unfortunate situation arises, rest assured that we are well-prepared to guide you and your dog through:

Pre-Surgery Protocols
Surgical Procedures

Post-op Pain Management and Nursing Care


A Commitment to Quality and Empathy in Veterinary Care For Dogs

Our veterinarians, technicians, assistants, and front staff work together to provide both you and your dog with a compassionate and professional experience. From the initial phone call, our goal is to ensure you feel your concerns are addressed, that you are well-informed, and that your dog receives the best care.
