All of our doctors and staff have the same goal: providing exemplary care to our community. The heart of rock road is our clients and their furry family members.

Rock Road Animal Hospital


I have a senior dog that has had idiopathic epilepsy since he was 2. Staying up on medications and care is difficult to say the least, quite demanding. I adore my dog and would do anything in my power to help him. This facility gives me the best chance to succeed. They are extremely helpful and are always ready to assist me in getting medications refilled online or locally. If you get the chance to have Lizzie and/or Dr. Straub help you - you couldn’t be in better hands. Both go above and beyond. I couldn’t succeed without you guys.

I love the team at Rock Road Animal Hospital! They are all so incredibly welcoming, friendly, and helpful. I'm always able to schedule timely appointments and have also been squeezed in for emergency situations (in the one instance that I couldn't get in, I was referred to another hospital that treats small animals; this was very helpful as small animal vets can be hard to come by). I'm so glad that I can rely on Dr. Stroud for the care of my rats and whatever health problems may arise with them. Thank you guys so much! :)

Wonderful hospital and doctors that care about their clients. The quality of care is above the rest. You can tell that these doctors love animals, and want to do what is right for their patients.

The best vet I have ever been too. The staff here is so amazing and have never been anything short of helpful, compassionate, and kind. It is so so hard to find a vet that cares for rats but with Dr Shroud and the whole Rock Road staff I feel safe leaving my babies with them. Not to mention they are by far one of the most affordable vets for pocket pet care. I cannot recommend this place enough!!
