Our Services

Wellness Care

Wellness and preventive care are important to maintaining the health of your pet. Yearly wellness exams and vaccinations can be key to catching problems early before they become serious problems.


Diagnostic testing is important in assessing the overall functionality of your pet’s internal organs and body systems. We have both in-house and a reference laboratory we use to get your pet’s results as soon as possible.

Surgical Services

At Howard County Veterinary Service, we offer a variety of surgical services. Procedures that we are equipped to perform include but are not limited to: Soft Tissue, Spay, Neuter, Orthopedic and Emergency Surgery.

In Case of an Emergency

We are happy to provide 24-hour emergency care to our clients and their animals. If this is an after-hours emergency, please call our office at (660) 248-3382.

From there, you will be directed to an after-hours emergency line where the on-call veterinarian will assist you. It is possible that the veterinarian is responding to another call, and they will reach you whenever they are available.

If our emergency veterinarian cannot be reached and you have an emergency that needs to be addressed immediately, please call the University of Missouri Veterinary Health Center after-hours number at (573) 882-4589 or Horton Animal Hospital Discovery at (573) 777-3609.
