Who We Are
Hawthorne Animal Clinic offers quality and compassionate veterinary care for your dog or cat. Our experienced staff is trained to meet your pet’s needs whether they need preventative care, surgery, dental care, or become suddenly ill. Because your pet can’t talk, we know how important it is to be an advocate for your pet’s health. We work closely with specialists and other local veterinary clinics to provide the best care possible to your pet.
***We now accept TEXT messaging! Our text number is 812-270-4245! Please feel free to contact us at this number regarding a number of issues. We can easily take medication refills, appointment requests or answer some of your questions or concerns. We understand our phones stay busy most of the time so this is a new service we offer.

NEW POLICY ON VACCINATION REQUIREMENT
We are also having nail trims, heart-worm tests, allergy shots, etc. on a WALK IN basis. ***NEW POLICY*** It is now required for your pet to have a current rabies vaccination before we will offer any of these services. If you have a current rabies certificate for your pet from a different veterinarian clinic please bring that with you or you may email it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org If your pet is past due for their rabies vaccination we will request that you make an appointment to have a doctor update you pet on their rabies vaccine. This is to help protect our staff and you pet! Thank you for your understanding!
***NEW POLICY FOR SURGERY AND DROP OFF PATIENTS*** ALL pets MUST be current on all of their vaccinations prior to their appointment (preferably 2 weeks prior for full protection for surgery patients)! Canine requirements are for distemper/parvo combo vaccine, bordetella vaccine, and rabies vaccine and feline requirements are for feline distemper combo vaccine and rabies vaccine. Please understand certain patients will require extra testing. These requirements could be for heartworm testing, feline fiv/aids testing, pre anesthesia bloodwork and other testing that your pet’s doctor may need to perform for your pet’s health. **We are still continuing our requirement of pre anesthesia bloodwork for any patient over the age of 7 years old before any surgery will be performed on that patient** We appreciate your understanding on our new policies, they are absolutely for the benefit of your pet’s health!
If you are concerned with price of vaccines or possible testing that your pet may require please feel free to request an estimate prior to your appointment!
