To ensure every pet has the greatest opportunity for a long, healthy, happy life, we offer proactive care for their individual needs. Our preventative care includes a wellness exam, vaccines, early diagnosis, testing, and more. A proactive approach to care prevents disease and promotes the highest quality of life for pets.
Vaccinations prevent disease and promote a healthy life for pets. During your exam, we can provide the required vaccines for your pet as well as recommend and administer vaccines based on your pet’s needs.
We offer surgical procedures using the most advanced techniques and technology. We perform surgeries based on your pet’s needs including spay, neuter, emergency surgery, oral surgery, Cesarean sections, tumor removal and biopsy, orthopedic repair, laceration repair, and more. Prior to surgery, we collect and analyze bloodwork and review your pet’s medical history to create an individualized anesthesia plan.
Our clients and patients are truly like family to us. We go above and beyond to make sure each experience is exceptional for the client and patient. We are Fear Free certified and practice Fear Free medicine. We are also a Feline Friendly practice (Dr. Cahill has earned the nickname “The Cat Whisperer”).

We’re proud to support the Retired Police Dog Fund.
Cesar Memorial Retired K9 Fund
Academy Animal Hospital is partnering with the Fraternal Order of Police #27 to provide medical care for the retired Joplin and Jasper County police dogs. Our police dogs receive excellent healthcare through the police and sheriff departments during the course of their service. However, once they retire; they are no longer part of the departments and live permanently with their handlers. Our canine officers care very much for their retired dogs and in previous years paid for their medical expenses themselves. We all want police dogs to have a retirement worthy of their service. With your help, the canine officers will have the peace of mind of knowing their partners’ medical needs will always be provided for. Academy Animal Hospital facilitates fundraisers for the Fund throughout the year. Donations can also be made here:
