The Pet Hospital
A deal of thought and planning has gone into the design of the Hutchinson Pet Hospital. Special emphasis was placed on pet health and comfort. With that in mind, and based on many years of past experience, the kennel area was designed to make your pet's stay here as pleasant as possible. In floor radiant heating ensures that your pet will not be lying on a cold surface. The Van-E air exchangers located throughout the hospital allow for continuous influx of fresh air and help greatly with odor control and ventilation to prevent spread of infectious airborne diseases. Caged animals are kept on grates to keep them clean and dry. The floors are also textured to provide a non-slip surface for older, arthritic dogs or dogs recovering from orthopedic or other major surgeries. All dogs are exercised twice daily unless contraindicated by a specific medical condition. There are two large outdoor exercise areas for this purpose. The animals are fed and watered twice daily and their cages or runs are cleaned and disinfected as needed.
The Hutchinson Pet Hospital was founded by Dr. Curtis Reiter and opened for business in December of 1984 at 146 Main Street, downtown Hutchinson. In 1987, Dr. Reiter's wife, Janel, joined the practice as manager. In June of 2000, we moved to our current facility at 760 Century Ave. We have provided outstanding veterinary services to Hutchinson and the surrounding areas for over 25 years.
All of our doctors and veterinary Technicians attend seminars and continuing education classes for current care and medical procedures. You are encouraged to call or stop in our hospital with any questions concerning the care of your pet. We will be pleased to provide you with current health care information.
