Welcome to Boone Veterinary Hospital

At Boone Veterinary Hospital, we are dedicated to providing high quality, individualized and compassionate care for our patients and their families, to allow for a long and healthy life. The Boone Veterinary Hospital has been practicing medicine and surgery since 1953. Our practice initially was a mixed animal practice, servicing both large and small animal patients. Currently, Boone Veterinary Hospital is exclusively a small animal clinic. We offer progressive veterinary medicine in a facility with state-of-the-art medical equipment and treatment options.

Today, more than ever, pets are important members of our family. When our pets are sick or injured, we want the best possible care for them. At Boone Veterinary Hospital, we are committed to providing compassionate treatment for all our patients. Dr. Elizabeth McClure together with our Doctors, skilled veterinary technicians, receptionists and kennel staff are capable of handling the most complicated and demanding medical and surgical cases. Quality patient care and client satisfaction are our top priorities. Boone Veterinary Hospital offers you and your pet the most advanced state-of-the-art veterinary medical services in a caring, compassionate atmosphere providing personalized service that is second to none.


At Boone Veterinary Hospital, we are committed to improving the quality of life for our patients by providing canine physical therapy including pain management services in a warm, relaxed atmosphere. Canine rehabilitation is very similar to the physical therapy services that have been offered for years to humans to help prevent additional injury following an injury, surgery or illness.



Our new state-of-the-art underwater treadmill can help patients return to full function after injury more quickly. Underwater treadmill therapy can improve your dog’s muscle strength and joint range of motion. Underwater treadmill therapy can be beneficial not only in patients with injuries but also in patients with osteoarthritis, obesity, and for conditioning healthy canine athletes.

Benefits of Underwater Treadmill Treatment:

    • Increases flexibility
    • Increases mobility
    • Earlier return to exercise post-surgically
    • Strengthening of the muscles surrounding painful joints

  • "Boone vet is the best! We take our two kittys and two dogs here for routine visits.

    They are always so excited to see our pets, we never have a worry when our pets are in their hands because we know they genuinely care about them.

    Their prices are fantastic, I know they are low but every time I hear what the bill is it’s still lower than my expectation! When we took our puppy in right after we got him we found out that his first exam was free which was awesome.

    Whenever we have a concern or question we can give them a call and get a thought out answer which often ends in an at home fix- they don’t try to get you to come in to get more money out of you like some places I’ve gone to in the past.

    Terrific team of amazing people, I’m glad to have my pets in their hands!"

  • "BVH has been taking care of our animals for many years. They have provided very caring & compassionate services to us, and for that we are so grateful. We had a very hard day yesterday, as our family dog, Lucy, passed away at almost 15 years of age. They were professional & helped us cope with the loss of our beloved girl. They really seem to understand how much our fur babies mean to us. Thank you to all of the staff in working with us through this recent visit, which was very emotional for my entire family."

  • "We had to make the very difficult decision to put our kitty down, and everyone involved at the vet hospital was fantastic. They were honest and kind as they walked us through each step. Also, everything was very affordable, and that just helps make the whole situation less stressful. Thank you, and much love from Coltrane's family."
