Tharp Animal Health Care Center is always so clean and well kept for the amount of animals rushing through on a regular basis.

We frequently get our dogs groomed here. They always smell fresh and clean! Definitely suggest Tharp Animal Health Care Center to other pet owners in the area.

Highly recommend Tharp Animal Health Care Center, because the staff take their time with you. If you have a question, they will explain things versus rush you out.

What a friendly and caring staff they have at Tharp Animal Health Care Center. They took the time to make sure my dog was improving after leaving the center.

Jack P.



After our dog had surgery, Tharp Animal Health Care Center called me at home some time later and asked how she was doing, because they care that much. Such a caring staff here!

Adam B.



If you do have multiple pets, Tharp Animal Heath Care is excellent at finding a time for you to bring all your pets in at the same time. So convenient.

Mary K.



I have lived in many cities. You will not find a better place to bring your pet for care, keeping up on vaccinations and groomings.

Carly S.



To all the staff at Tharp Animal Health Care, I am incredibly thankful for the care you gave to my cat. I was on vacation when I received a call saying that she needed immediate surgery, and that they would take care of her. Thank you for the wonderful help with her.

dental care and grooming

Took my 15 year old baby in for dental care cleaning and extractions. I was so worried because of her age. They took excellent care of her and her teeth went from black to white. I have also taken her there for grooming and they do an excellent job at that as well. Very pleased.

Edward C.



Have been there now on several instances and they have been very kind and caring. They call back to check up on the pet and are really concerned on the welfare...would suggest them to everyone who cares for their babies as much as I do

Melody P.


Thank you

Thank you for always taking great care of my sheep. I know they are livestock and not pets but you never remind me of that and for that I'm thankful! I love them. Wouldn't go anywhere else

Excellent vets and staff

I've been going to Dr. Tharp ever since he saved our black lab Ebony when she had heart worms and at the time he treated her and let me make payments on it. I trust him with all my critters and am always greeted pleasantly by the staff.

Laura V.



Wonderful staff, showers our dog with love and excellent care. Veterinarians and staff are tops and obviously love what they are doing and know their job well! Wouldn't board him anywhere else!

Connie J.



As a professional breeder for over 17 years, I don't trust just anyone with my dogs. I have been taking my dogs to Tharp Animal Healthcare for many years. The staff is very friendly, the clinic is very clean and organized and I couldn't be happier with the care my dogs receive. Doctor Tharp and Doctor Wireman are very knowledgeable and take the time to explain everything. I can tell everyone there cares deeply about the health of all of the animals and their owners. I highly recommend Tharp Animal Healthcare for anyone who wants the best for their furry companion.

When we discovered our dog Charlie had swallowed a sewing needle we called Dr Tharp and he met us after hours at his clinic. He was very caring and everything worked out without surgery! He is very patient and always uses common sense along with his expertise. Thank you, Dr. Tharp!

Della B.



I've been taking my dogs to Dr Tharp for 10 years. He seen my dogs after hours for emergencies and is very good and explains everything. The ladies up front are very helpful and nice. I love knowing my furry babies are in good hands!

It was late when I arrived there but the staff was very friendly and caring. Very professionally done and you can tell they take pride in their business. Highly recommended. We would not take our pet to anyone else.

The staff was wonderful to me, it was my first time there and they treated me as a long time friend. They were very kind to my dogs helping them to feel comfortable with being left there.
