Welcome to our Oates Veterinary Clinic, Inc. Website!

***Attention: 11/9/17 Canine Influenza Update:
The CIV has hit central Ohio, and we highly recommend vaccination for high risk dogs.  Please see our FB page and resources tab to learn more.***

If you live in Kenton, Ohio or the surrounding central Ohio area, we would love to be your veterinary hospital.  Our doctors and staff are committed to providing you with full service veterinary care for your dogs and cats. 

In operation since 1971, Oates Veterinary Clinic, Inc. welcomes both emergency cases as well as patients in need of routine medical, surgical, and dental care. Beyond medical care, our goal is to also make our clinic as comfortable, pet-friendly, family-friendly, and calm as possible.  We also offer a full service boarding and grooming facility and offer tours for anyone who is interested.

In addition to our medical services, we strongly believe in education: both for ourselves and also for our clients.  We are continually learning new techniques, in animal training and behavior, nutrition, and also in medicine and surgery.  We love to share our knowledge with clients because we believe that the family is providing the majority of the care, and they need to understand what is happening medically and why we are prescribing the medication.  Research on the internet is popular for many now and we don’t disagree that it can be a very useful tool.  We can help you find reputable sites with trusted veterinary information so that you can find the information you need.

We love the challenge of solving difficult cases not just for the pet but for the family as well.  If you require help with a sick pet then please contact us and let us schedule an appointment for a thorough examination.  Your pets’ health and well-being are of the utmost importance to us and we will work tirelessly to give your animals the care and attention they deserve.  Please review the many services we offer under Our Services .

Please contact us at (419) 673-0473 to schedule an appointment or tour of the hospital.  We are centrally located within 35 miles of Findlay, Lima, Lakeview, Bellefontaine, Marysville, Upper Sandusky and Marion, Ohio.  Travelling east on 67, we are 7 blocks from the Hardin County Courthouse and located next to the Kenton High School football field parking lot. 

We sincerely look forward to meeting you and your pets!
