Who Are We

What sets us apart from another animal hospital?

Our “home town, family feeling” approach in a corporate world, our love for all patients and our team’s dedication are what makes Prescott Animal Hospital unique. We are always striving to be on the cutting edge of technology while maintaining individualized patient care.

We want to create a bond with both our patients and their owners.  Our patients are treated like our own four-legged family members and our clients are not just numbers; they each have a story. It is our goal to know your story and treat your pet the way you would, with the best patient care possible. We are not just a business; we are a family and you are a part of it.

The AAHA award committee evaluates each team on their most recent accreditation score, mission and vision, team composition, continuing education and training, community involvement and much more.

Our History

Prescott Animal Hospital Throughout the Years

The original building was opened in 1947 by Dr. Fletcher and was expanded in 1965 with three veterinarians on board. In the next 10 years, PAH outgrew the original building and envisioned a new practice to provide superior veterinary services for the community. Construction began on 1318 Iron Springs Road and the new facility was opened October of 1976.

As time progressed, the services offered, veterinarians and owners at PAH continued to grow. An extension of our vision in 1976 guided us to open the first complete Equine Center in Northern Arizona. Construction broke ground on the new Equine Center in April 2006 and after completion the remodel on our 1318 Iron Springs building began.  The building on Iron Springs is now fully dedicated to Companion Animal Care.
