Caring for Pets Since 2000

It’s been said that you can judge a man’s character by the way he treats his pets. Here at Central Pet Care, we treat your pets like family because we believe they deserve nothing less. We offer full-service veterinary care for dogs, cats, and pocket pets using state-of-the-art equipment and technology. As pet owners ourselves, we understand the special bond that exists between animals and humans, and part of our goal is to nurture that bond.

Conveniently located in downtown Carthage, MO, we’ve been serving the pets of Carthage, Joplin, Webb City, and surrounding areas in Southwest Missouri since 2000. We know how important it is for your pet to receive high-quality veterinary care, and at our animal hospital in Carthage, that’s exactly what we deliver.

What Makes Us Different

Central Pet Care is staffed with a team of friendly, experienced healthcare professionals who all share the same passion for animal welfare. We treat pets like we treat our own, and we take pride in this devotion. We also take pride in our innovative approach of veterinary science as we seek new ways to clearly educate our clients and care for our patients. Our veterinarians regularly complete continuing education courses to stay current with the latest veterinary trends and information.

As a practice, we are committed to lead with the continuing education of our team, coupled with advanced technology, to provide high-quality, compassionate care for your companion. This unique approach brings multiple trainings in-house on a regular basis, but what makes us the best we can be is our culture of caring. You can be sure that we won’t recommend anything for your pet that we wouldn’t recommend for our own.

We’re also a premier critical care and surgery center that provides the safety and advanced technology of a state-of-the-art surgical suite, progressive in-house diagnostics, and more. We offer critical care, trauma surgery, and orthopedic procedures to heal bodies and ease minds. Our experienced, knowledgeable team of veterinarians, technicians, and nurses can meet all of your pet’s needs before, during, and after surgery.
