Services at Rock River Animal Clinic

Preventative Care

We provide a wide range of preventive care services, including vaccinations, nutrition counseling, wellness services and client education. For older pets, we also offer skilled geriatric care that can help pets enjoy a long and active life.

Pet Dentistry

We want your pet to live a long, healthy life, and we understand that maintaining a healthy mouth is part of that. From routine oral care to full mouth extractions, we are equipped to fully care for your pets dental needs.


From routine procedures like spaying and neutering to complicated soft tissue surgery, we offer a wide range of veterinary services and surgical procedures.  We also offer a "Free Second Opinion" program, not only for surgical procedures or an unsettling diagnosis, but also for price comparison.

Internal Medicine

It may be surprising to some, but our pets deal with some of the same diseases as humans. From diabetes and thyroid disease to heart and kidney failure, we will be there to help you understand the disease process and partner with you in the treatment of your loved pet.

Our clinic is open five days a week, and we are available for urgent and emergency care during scheduled hours. If you have an injured animal, we will always adjust our schedule to provide the immediate assistance that is necessary. See below for after hours emergency care.

Proper diagnosis is essential when it comes to treating your pet. That’s why we offer a full in-house veterinary laboratory, including hematology, chemistries, endocrinology, virology, parasite diagnostics and cytology. Advanced diagnostic equipment, including digital radiography, electrocardiograms and digital otoscopy also give our vets a powerful set of tools for finding and solving animal health care problems fast.
