You've Found Your Veterinarian in Las Vegas, NV

Your pets are more than just pets -- they're beloved members of your family. So it's only right that they receive the same level of skilled, compassionate care you would expect for any of the two-legged loved ones in your family. Here at Gentle Doctor Animal Hospital, we've dedicated our practice toward fulfilling that need. Dr. Gerald L. Prybl and Dr. Terri Fujikawa, supported by our able team, can provide your pet with everything from routine wellness care to emergency treatment. In other words, you've found your veterinarian in Las Vegas, NV!

You may wonder how we selected our name, Gentle Doctor Animal Hospital. We've named the facility after a well-known statue in the Veterinary Court at Iowa State University, where Dr. Prybl graduated from veterinary school. "The Gentle Doctor" statue represents Charles H. Stange, former Dean of the school's Veterinary College. Over the years it has come to stand as an enduring symbol of the veterinary profession's ideals and goals. We want our Las Vegas residents to know that we honor those ideals at all times in our efforts to embody the "Gentle Doctor" to their pets. Your companions deserve no less.

Gentle Doctor Animal Hospital offers a wide range of services to help pets enjoy optimum health through all stages of life, from their first weeks to their senior years. We provide important wellness procedures such as vaccinations, wellness exams, micro-chipping, dental care, and spay and neuter surgery. Our facility is thoroughly equipped with advanced diagnostic equipment, allowing us to run a variety of tests to detect any problems that might threaten your pet's well- being. Surgical treatments offered at our hospital include everything from ear, eye, and oral surgery to tumor removal and orthopedic reconstructive surgery.

If your pet is on the mend from an injury or struggling with a chronic health problem, you can trust Gentle Doctor Animal Hospital to help him feel better and heal faster. We can recommend dietary and nutritional strategies to help your pet maintain a healthy weight, thus avoiding the chronic issues associated with obesity. We also provide state-of-the-art therapeutic methods such as laser therapy, which can reduce pain and inflammation while accelerating the tissue healing process.
