Hello world!

At Riverside Animal Hospital, caring for pets is our passion.

Here, we treat pets like family. We understand how important your companion is to you — because they’re there for you through the thick and thin of life, with a wagging tail or a happy purr, and unconditional love. Our goal is to be your partner in taking care of your pet’s physical and mental wellbeing, so you can enjoy many happy years together. So, whether your pet needs a checkup with a doctor… a caring team and top-notch medical treatments when they’re ill… or, some advice on the best food for them or how to care for them at home — we’re here for you! At Riverside Animal Hospital, we see dogs and cats. And, we’ll strive to make their visit a comfortable and positive experience. Come in and get to know us, and see why both you and your pet will love coming here!

    Arlene S.


  • After seeing multiple vets while living in the area and never feeling totally satisfied with them I found Dr. Crance at Riverside Animal Hospital.  From the receptionists to the vet tech to Dr. Crance the experience couldn't have been a better experience.  Dr. Crance was honest and explained and educated us on everything he talked about.  His prices are fair and his hospital is clean.  I am so glad we found this vet.  Highly recommend.
