Mission Statement

  • Promote and provide quality health care for our patients in a gentle and joyful environment, offering a holistic approach, which integrates conventional and current medical practices with alternative healing arts.

  • Grow and prosper through continued education and commitment to animal care.

  • Respect and communicate openly with staff, clients and the animals, as we honor the spirit of life, and the sanctity of our precious Earth.

Wolf Rock Animal Health Center was created in 1997, with the goal of providing an animal hospital that focuses on promoting and maintaining health of pets through education and understanding of the foundations of health.

Unlike many animal hospitals today, our practice style is not driven by drug company promotions, vaccinations and the marketing schemes of corporate interests. We take the time to sit down with you, get to know you and your pets, address all health issues and formulate a plan to improve health and well being.

Most appointments are 30 minutes or longer, in order to provide the time to look at your pet as a whole. Nutrition is a keystone to health, and we will discuss options for feeding your friends the best foods that you are able to.


The Wolf Rock Animal Health Center is a well-equipped, modern veterinary hospital offering general medicine, surgery, and preventative health services for companion animals.

In addition, we offer alternative treatment options. These include a holistic approach, acupuncture,animal chiropractic,  herbal medicine, homeopathy, and nutritional consultations.


We are offering these alternatives in order to expand our ability to treat medical conditions and to help you maintain your pets in the best of health, using the gentlest of methods.

Each case is individually evaluated and the treatment choice is made according to the preference of the client and the needs of the patient. In order to apply this holistic approach, new patients are scheduled an initial one hour appointment for physical examination, case review and treatment options. Therefore, we are unable to advise on specific treatment of a case before the initial appointment.      If you are seeking alternative therapies for an existing condition in your pet, we'd like you to know that alternative therapies may be used alone or in conjunction with conventional treatments for almost any condition.

At times, due to high case load, we may be unable to accept new patients. While we'd like to be able to accommodate every animal that may be in need of our services, it is important that we keep time in our appointment schedule to accommodate all of those that are already under our care. In this event, we do have a waiting list so that we can contact you when an opening arises.

All of us at Wolf Rock Animal Health Center welcome our new clients and patients and look forward to helping you meet their health care needs. Please feel free to stop in for a tour of our facility. If you'd like to schedule an appointment or request additional information, please contact us.
