Here When You Need Us

Request an appointment online in minutes.


New River Animal Hospital will continue to stay open to serve the pets of our community. Some elective procedures will be rescheduled to a later date to make room for emergent care. If you would like to discuss with us whether your appointment can wait, please call us.

We will be adopting a curbside/drop-off service protocol to ensure the safety of staff and clients, both. The protocol will be as follows:

1. Upon arrival, please call us at 304-466-0251. If you do not have a cell phone, you may beep your car horn.
2. History and any concerns will be taken over the phone by a receptionist. Once all pertinent info has been gathered and discussed, a technician will bring your pet inside the building.
3. Once diagnosis and treatment have been performed, the receptionist will call to collect payment over the phone, then transfer the call to a doctor (if needed) to discuss necessary information.
4. The tech will then take the pet back to your vehicle with any medications, etc.

**Exceptions include euthanasia in which the owner is allowed in the building but will be given gloves and a mask.

We appreciate your patience and understanding during this time. Hopefully, things can get back to normal very soon. Stay healthy and God bless.

GROOMING – Please note that we are working very hard to get your pet scheduled back in. Please be advised that we will first schedule pets that had an existing appointment. Thank you.

“My baby Lilly choked on her food and got severe aspiration pneumonia. Thanks to the doc (Connie) for all she has done to save her and the wonderful hospitality and comfort she gave me through the whole recovery process.”

“I would like to commend New River Animal Hospital for the diligent services provided to my pets. Recently my dog Ginger got very sick. Because of the excellent health care is given, my dog has recovered. Diagnosis and treatment were right on, and I thank Dr. Sarah, Dr. Connie, Ronielle, Kim, and the caring staff for saving my Ginger who has an uncommon disease. As for my other pets, correct diagnosis and treatment plans are working well for my German Shepherd mix (allergies)and my senior tomcat. Thank you.”

“I moved here from California about 1 year 6 months ago and found this house in Nimitz, West Virginia. I brought my 3 dogs with me and checked in to the New River Animal Hospital to provide for there immunization to be up to date and any other medical issues they may need. The staff and doctors there are first rate and I am very pleased to have them so close by. When I went on a vacation for two weeks they boarded them there and took great care of them.”
Larry B.

“The people here are wonderful! I’ve been coming here for 8+ years and my father many years more than that. They take wonderful care of my pet as if he was their own. I recommend them to everyone I know, thank you all for caring and for everything you do!”
