Welcome to Woodstock Animal Hospital

If you live in the Woodstock area and need a trusted and caring veterinarian for your pets, please call us for an appointment. Woodstock Animal Hospital is a full-service primary care animal hospital for dogs and cats. Basic care of small pets such as guinea pigs, rabbits, and rats is also provided. Our location is convenient and quiet, on more than 4 acres just east of the Woodstock city limits.  

Boarding patients will receive the special care they require and dogs will have outdoor time daily during their stay with us.  

Our two doctors have cared for the pets of generations of Woodstock and area families. Relationships, new and old, are important to our doctors as the health of our patients depends largely on their families' knowledge and choices for their pets. We are committed to continual learning for all staff and clients so that our patients’ families understand how to prevent many health issues and how to manage short-term or chronic health problems. A number of resources and links are offered on Woodstock Animal Hospital’s website to help with understanding patient training, problems, and to research topics of interest. We are also blessed to have a number of area veterinary specialists to consult as challenging cases and need arise.

  • "Dr. Sinnott saved the life of my dear (elderly) dog, Mac on New Year's Eve. He came in as an emergency, and her loving, skillful hands were able to remove a series of large bone fragments from his colon without having to resort to surgery. I am forever in her debt, and from now on our dogs will never go anywhere else!"
    Nicola E.
