They take care of my babiesBrandy K.Brandy K. ★★★★★ I visited 3 times in the last 3 weeks with my pup Skye Bleu. Each time we had a different Dr. all 3 knew Skyes detailed history from files transferred from our Vet in Chicago. The Drs could not have been nicer.

Daycare is so great, and the dogs get exercised being able to run, play, swim and socialize, and it gives you a day off to do your errands. Their groomers do a great job, and if they need a vet checkup they will go get them when they are free, and return them next door so they are ready for you when you pick them up. The entire crew that spends the day with your dog is friendly, dog lovers, and helpful in every way making this a wonderful experience for all.

Our Services

Although our beautiful hospital is brand new, our doctors and staff are not! Together we have over a century of veterinary experience, but even with that level of experience we all participate in continuing education on a monthly basis. There’s always more to learn! The training that we are all excited about is receiving certification as “Fear-Free” practitioners. This means that everyone at Applewood Animal Hospital is committed to making your pet’s hospital experience as enjoyable as possible, including lots of treats (peanut butter on a pretzel stick, baby food, frozen chicken broth, you name it!), calming music and an understanding and awareness of what is needed to make your pet feel uniquely comfortable.

Our experience was wonderful! Everyone was so kind and caring and informative about what to expect after the dental work and extractions. Charlie did very well and was his old, cute, funny self in no time.


Timid Molly did very well at Applewood especially because Dr. Drummond sat right on the floor with her and made her feel safe!  It could not have been a better experience!


I was totally satisfied and did not see anything that could have been better. The love and care given to my Louis Vuitton is beyond belief. He feels great which of course has me feel great. Thank you for your commitment to our children in fur.


Belle and I had a great first experience. Everything was topnotch.

Larry & Andi

Dr. Crouch and Melissa were both very kind and gentle with my dog, which I really appreciate.  Both took all the time I needed to speak with me and cover all my concerns. I never felt rushed. That’s rare! And lovely.


Yesterday I was very panicky when our dog kept vomiting so I called here & was able to get him squeezed in today (Saturday) & let me tell you I am very glad we did. The office was very clean & nice, I felt comfortable leaving our dog there to get treatment. They were very informative & reasonably priced for the service(s) that Levi needed.

This is our new vet, very glad we found them.
