    The Animal Hospital of Emporia provides hospitalization for those patients that require more than outpatient care. We have the capacity to administer intravenous fluid therapy, with an automated pump that regulates the amount of fluid a patient receives. We also have a separate isolation room for treatment of contagious diseases, such as Canine Parvo virus and Feline Leukemia.


    Micro chipping allows for permanent identification of a pet. While not a “tracking device”, vets and shelters scan found animals allowing the opportunity of reuniting pets with their owners.


    Our staff can do wonders for your dirty pet! We schedule several baths each weekday, with nail trims, ear cleaning, and gland expression included with this service along with as much combing/ brushing as needed.

    For those of our furry pets that need professional grooming we have Tammy Garrison here on a regular basis. Tammy is an experienced groomer, a true magician with clippers and scissors.


    Dr. Grenell has used chemotherapeutic agents on many patients where surgical removal of a tumor/cancer was not enough to control the problem. Because Emporia is located more than one hour from the nearest veterinary oncologist, being able to receive regular chemo treatments locally is very convenient to our clients and patients. The types of cancers we have treated using chemo agents include:

    • Lymphoma
    • Mast cell tumor (a form of skin cancer)
    • Osteosarcoma (bone cancer)
    • Hemangiosarcoma of the spleen and skin
    • Mammary (breast) cancer
    • Pancreatic cancer

    And others; Chemo doses for animals are set so that our cancer patients usually feel just fine! These treatments have given some patients high quality months and years that they otherwise would not have had, and others have been cured of their cancer and gone on to live a normal lifespan.


    Boarding services are available for our canine and feline patients. Dogs are exercised three times daily, and all animals in our care are given plenty of attention. There is no additional charge to administer medications to patients that stay with us.


    We address a variety of health issues for our older patients so they can enjoy the highest quality of life possible for as long as possible. Our objective is to address and properly treat medical conditions for these geriatrics so they can remain healthy and comfortable during their “golden years.” For arthritic pets, we use a multi modal approach to help them remain mobile, which allows owners and their four-legged companions to better enjoy the remaining time they have together.


    When a pet’s quality of life has declined and treatment options will not improve things, humane euthanasia is usually elected. An owner’s wishes are always top priority once a decision to euthanize has been reached. Cremation services are available for clients who prefer such an alternative.
