Medical Services for Metro East Pets

In an Emergency and for the Every Day

Hawthorne Animal Hospital in Glen Carbon and Troy is committed to every pet at every stage of their life. If your puppy mistakes your sock for food or your older dog needs a little hands-on therapy to quiet the creaking in their joints, we’re here to address every bellyache, bump or broken bone that may come your pet’s way—night or day. Just as important, we keep them healthy by tailoring wellness and preventative care to their age, breed and lifestyle.

As a top-rated veterinarian clinic and 24-hour pet hospital, Hawthorne is staffed with veterinarians, technicians and technicians trained in the latest advanced pet care treatments for dogs, cats and exotics. Our full line of medical services includes:

Wellness Exams

During your pet’s annual visit, their doctor will perform an exam to identify any causes of concern, run labs as necessary, and educate you on ways to help your pet live their healthiest life.


When it comes to our pet’s health, it’s much more affordable to prevent a disease than treat it. Hawthorne veterinary clinic administers annual vaccines for dogs and cats to fight off infections.

Spay & Neuter Surgery

Spay and neuter surgery not only prevents unexpected litters from filling your home, but also lowers your pet’s cancer risk, helps improves their behavior and increases their chances of living longer.

24/7 Emergency Care

When your pet is in crisis, you can’t wait for your vet clinic to open—you need help now. Hawthorne is the only 24-hour emergency animal hospital serving the St. Louis Metro East.

24/7 Intensive Care

Our medical team provides your pet with continual monitoring as well as extra attention and love as they recover from surgery in the comfort of our advanced Intensive Care Unit (ICU).
