Our facility is equipped with the latest equipment and technology in order to provide the highest standard of care. We treat every pet that walks through our doors like members of our own family. We know the bond between owner and pet is a strong one; our team only wishes to ensure that bond can last for years by making sure every pet is properly maintaining their health.
Veterinary services we offer include, but are not limited to:
Each pet is as individual as their owner, and their individual needs may vary. Therefore, we provide a wide array of preventative health care including comprehensive annual and semi-annual exams, vaccinations, parasite control, screening lab work, and prophylactic dental cleanings. We believe that preventive care and early detection of disease are key to your pet living a happy and healthy life.
If your pet develops an acute illness or injury, Rockhill Pet Clinic offers urgent care services. We know that it is not always possible to plan for life’s mishaps, so we always welcome unscheduled appointments. We will make sure that your pet is stable and then we will get you seen as quickly as possible. Rockhill Pet Clinic is also a full-service hospital. If your pet needs to stay with us for the day for ongoing medical care, we can accommodate that.

We are able to offer an array of surgical procedures for our clients. Whether your pet needs a routine spay or neuter, or a complex surgical procedure, we are here to help you through the process.

Patients under anesthesia are closely monitored by a trained surgical nurse using the most up to date monitoring equipment. Following surgery, patients are moved to a comfortable area where they can recover under the close supervision of our skilled nursing staff.

We work diligently to provide the best surgical services through strict attention to safety, sterile technique, quality instrumentation, the most up to date equipment, and continuing education for our doctors and staff.
Pets often demonstrate illness or anxiety through inappropriate behaviors or changes in behavior. These negative behaviors can lead to a breakdown of the human-animal bond and can even result in relinquishment of a pet. However, there are often alternatives that can help to modify or even eliminate negative behaviors. Let our staff help you to determine the best way to address your pet’s behavioral issues.
At Rockhill Pet Clinic, we provide comprehensive pet boarding services. Pets in our care receive personal attention, love, and affection from our dedicated staff. Boarding with us offers the added security of knowing that if your pet should require medical attention, our doctors and nurses are on site and readily available.

Laser Therapy for Pets
Laser Therapy has long been used by professional athletes in sports medicine. This non-invasive technique uses a beam of light that penetrates tissue without causing any damage. The targeted laser therapy can be used to treat pain, reduce inflammation and stimulate cell regrowth and healing. Laser therapy can be a successful tool in treating both acute and chronic conditions.
Laser therapy is great because it is a non-invasive, painless, and drug-free therapy that has been clinically proven to stimulate cellular activity and help the body heal at a faster rate.
Rockhill Pet Clinic is proud to offer veterinary acupuncture. Acupuncture offers a variety of benefits for sick or injured pets, including those who suffer from arthritis. With acupuncture nerves are stimulated and there is an increase in blood circulation, which helps relieve muscle spasms and the release of endorphins. For most pets, the acupuncture treatment is painless, and the benefits can be seen almost immediately.
Euthanasia & End of Life Care
We know that your beloved pet is an important part of your family. The decision that it is time to say goodbye is, perhaps, one the most difficult you will ever have to make. We also know that this is a highly personal decision that can only be made by you. Our caring and compassionate staff will work with you to provide your pet with warmth and comfort and will be by your side to answer your questions and provide support. At Rockhill Pet Clinic, we offer both in hospital and at home euthanasia services.
