Welcome to Sun Valley Animal Center!

When your pet needs surgery, you need to find a pet surgery center you can trust. 

At Sun Valley Animal Center, we are proud to be your premier source for pet surgery. We have been serving your pets for over thirty years now, and we will always treat your pet as if they were our own. To best serve your pet, we offer a wide variety of surgical procedures, including TATE™ Canine Elbow Surgery, Tibial Plateau Osteotomy (TPLO), Total Hip Replacement, Thoracic Surgery and even spinal surgery. No matter what your pet’s surgical needs are, the experienced veterinarians and surgeons at Sun Valley Animal Center have you covered.

We offer experienced and compassionate care for your pet. 

Although we are probably best known for our nationally renowned surgical center, we offer more than just pet surgery. We can handle all of your pets needs, from dentistry to physical rehabilitation, and we even offer alternative medicines, like veterinary acupuncture and chiropractic. In addition to caring for your pet’s medical needs, we also offer dog and cat boarding in our beautiful Pet Lodge and Ranch. Whether your pet needs to stay for a week or just the day, we will provide them with the love and attention they deserve.

Your pets are a part of your family, so you shouldn’t trust their care to just anyone. Sun Valley Animal Center proudly serves Boise, Salt Lake City, Spokane and Billings, and we will care for your pet as if they were our own!
