Welcome To Animal Kingdom Veterinary Care Center
Giving Pets the Care They Deserve.
Every pet deserves to receive tender loving, high-quality care by people who have a genuine passion for making and keeping animals healthy. At Animal Kingdom Veterinary Care Center in North Liberty, that’s what we’re all about. We’ve been happily caring for pets for years, helping them down the road to wellness. “Care” isn’t in our name for nothing. It’s what we do! Our animal hospital is conveniently located on Liberty Way and West Penn, just west of LD Express. We’re committed to establishing lasting relationships with pets and their “people,” and to educating partnering with our clients so they can be the best possible pet owners.
Animal Kingdom Veterinary Care Center is a practice that’s fueled by the desire to see pets live long, happy, healthy lives. When you and your pet come to see us, you can expect nothing less than friendliness, courtesy, and professionalism.
As a full-service animal hospital in North Liberty, we offer a wide range of services to meet your companion’s needs, including preventive care, dentistry, surgery, acupuncture, and laser therapy. Our facility is also equipped with an in-house laboratory, which allows us to provide same-day results for many tests.
This eastern medicine involves inserting needles into points in the body (called acupoints) to create a healing response. It can be used to treat arthritis, gastrointestinal problems, breathing problems, and many other conditions.
Allergy Testing & Treatment
If your pet’s been itching and scratching a lot lately, they may have an allergy. We offer allergy testing and treatment services, including topical therapy and medication, to put an end to your four-legged friend’s allergy discomfort.
Your pet’s oral health is one of the most important aspects of their overall health, but sadly, it’s also one of the most neglected. With our comprehensive dental services, we can keep your pet’s mouth in tip-top shape.
Whether your pet needs a spay/neuter procedure, skin mass removal, or something more complex (fracture repair, etc.), our surgical services can help. Our veterinary surgeons are experienced with performing both soft tissue and orthopedic surgeries.
