YOUR PET'S HEALTH IS OUR PRIORITY!
At Utah Veterinary Hospital, our American Fork, UT veterinary team takes great pride in being the area's one-stop shop for all their pets' health and wellness needs. We understand that your pet is a part of your family, which is why we make it our mission to treat your pet like one of our own. When you step foot inside our office, you'll enjoy our warm, welcoming, and kid-friendly environment. Ultimately, our goal is to provide you and your four-legged friend with the best experience possible.
Our very own Dr. Samuel Rivera is a licensed Utah veterinarian, and has been practicing since he graduated with his Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine in 2009. His experience ranges from working in both corporate and private hospitals, and well as high- and low-cost animal clinics. Today, he is the proud owner of Utah Veterinary Hospital, where he provides the highest standard of care to a variety of pets. He has a companion dog named Flojo, as well as a Koi pond, in his own home.
Our team also consists of a variety of skilled and experienced veterinary assistants, receptionists, and volunteers who are dedicated to making your experience with our animal hospital a positive one.
Our full-service animal hospital is your go-to stop for all your pet's health needs. From routine wellness exams and vaccinations to spay/neuter procedures and everything in between, we do it all. Some of the more common veterinary services we have to offer include:
We highly recommend an annual wellness exam for all pets—and for older pets or pets with certain medical conditions, we may encourage more frequent visits. Wellness exams are a great way for us to get some insight on your pet's overall health, as well as to be on the lookout for any signs of potential problems. We can also use these exams as an opportunity to make sure your pet is up-to-date on all vaccinations and immunizations.
Whether it's something routine or an urgent medical need, you can rest assured that your pet is in good hands with us. We'll always take the time to ensure that you're well informed regarding your pet's health and any treatment options available to you, and our veterinarian is happy to answer any questions or address any concerns you may have at any time.
Whether you're interested in scheduling an appointment or simply want to learn more about our American Fork, UT practice, we invite you to contact us at (801) 692-1563. Our team at Utah Veterinary Hospital is available six days a week (Saturdays included) for your convenience, so we can always find an appointment date and time that works with your busy schedule.
At Utah Veterinary Hospital, we treat your pets like the valued family members they are.
