Our Practice

Eastgate Pet Clinic is a full-service animal hospital. We focus on regular preventative care as well as urgent medical, surgical, and dental issues. Our doctors are experienced in all types of conditions and treatments. Beyond first rate pet care, we make our clinic a comfortable and calm environment so your pet can relax in the waiting room and look forward to meeting his or her own Boise veterinarian. We have a number of resources for you to learn about how to take better care of your pets. The best veterinary care for animals is ongoing nutrition and problem prevention.   At Eastgate Pet Clinic, we treat your pets like the valued family members they are.
