According to the American Veterinary Medical Association’s 2017-2018 pet ownership survey, nearly 57 percent of American households own a pet. It’s no wonder then that Hutchinson Pet Hospital is celebrating 35 years of serving the Hutchinson community’s furry friends.

Hutchinson Pet Hospital got its start in 1984 when Dr. Curtis Reiter purchased Dr. Carlson’s downtown veterinary practice. In 2013, Dr. Kristen Roffey purchased the practice from Dr. Reiter.

Since 1984, Hutchinson Pet Hospital has built a passionate legacy of caring for pets and keeping them healthy. Hutchinson Pet Hospital creates customized health care plans for each pet which includes vaccinations, diagnostic and early disease screenings and parasite protection programs. The entire staff works as a team with the pet owner to deliver excellent care.
