The Animal Care Center is a small and exotic animal veterinary clinic located in a suburb of St. Louis, Missouri, on the edge of Granite City, Illinois. We practice high quality general medicine and surgery with an emphasis on prevention. We realize that some clients may have financial concerns, so we tailor treatment to the best of our ability while offering payment plans through Care Credit. We are fortunate to have several referral practices in the metropolitan area to collaborate with on difficult internal medicine and surgical cases, including a traveling radiologist and surgeon.
Weare a family-oriented practice that believes in the importance of quality of life within our walls, as well as outside. After hours emergency and critical cases are referred to one of the local emergency clinics in the area, and veterinarians are not expected to be on call.
