 Veterinary Pet Care Services

Bell Shoals Animal Hospital is a full-service veterinary hospital. What does that mean? It means that Bell Shoals Animal Hospital is prepared to diagnose, treat, and hospitalize those patients who are very sick or severely injured and provide the best medical and surgical care available today.

 Preventative Health Care and Vaccinations

Bell Shoals Animal Hospital provides routine vaccinations in accordance with the latest vaccination recommendations of the veterinary profession. Our vaccination program can be tailored to the individual needs of the pet and/or client.

General Surgery

This includes spay-neuter, tumor removals, cystomy and other soft tissue surgeries.


Radiology (x-rays) is an important diagnostic tool which we use routinely at Bell Shoals Animal Hospital.

Prophylactic Dental Cleaning

Prophylactic dental cleaning, to remove that built up plaque, is very important in maintaining the health of your pet. Infected gums with periodontal disease are a source for bacteria to escape into the blood stream and infect the internal organs (heart valves, liver, kidneys, etc).

In House Laboratory

Bell Shoals Animal Hospital maintains its own in house laboratory which provides us with full battery of chemistry profiles and complete blood counts which include a differential. We also perform fine needle aspirate, for cytological examination.

In House Pharmacy

Bell Shoals Animal Hospital keeps stocked a full medical pharmacy so that our clients don’t have to make another stop on the way home, after bringing or picking up their pet from the hospital.

Pet ID Services – Microchipping

Bell Shoals Animal Hospital recommends Pet Identification, through micro-chipping, for all of our patients. We have seen too many lost dogs and cats, without microchips ,being transported to either the Humane Society or Hillsborough Animal Services and not having a microchip. Checking for a microchip is SOP for these organizations and also most veterinary hospitals. Losing a loved pet can be very traumatic to the whole family, especially not knowing what has happened and not knowing if your pet may be injured.

Nutritional Consultation

Bell Shoals Animal Hospital provides a large array of pet food nutritional and diet products that will meet the needs of any patient requiring a prescription diet to manage their medical condition.
