Our Veterinary Hospital

Animal Health Clinic is committed to your pet’s well-being.

Animal Health Clinic of Baton Rouge specializes in compassionate veterinary care in a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere. Animal Health Clinic is a family owned small animal veterinary clinic, which opened its doors in 1972, originally located in the Southdowns area of Baton Rouge. The shot-gun style building was split: the front was the veterinary clinic and the back was Dr. Hackett’s home, where he and his wife, Edith Hackett, raised their two young children at the time. Their daughter Teri would often entertain clients with demonstrating her tap and ballet skills. Their son Michael Hackett, as young as three years old, would help out around the veterinary hospital. The hospital was maintained in its original location for 4 years. In 1975, the building was demolished and a 2,400 sq/ft building was constructed as a veterinary hospital. This facility was a lease agreement in which the leaser agreed to a seven year lease after which the building was demolished. Animal Health Clinic then moved to its current location on Perkins road in 1983, a building Dr. Hackett had constructed, where we have been proudly serving our clients for 33 years!
