Our History

Animal Health Clinic of Baton Rouge specializes in compassionate veterinary care in a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere. Animal Health Clinic 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. In 1975, the building was demolished and a 2,400 sq. ft. building was constructed as a veterinary hospital. In 1983, Animal Health Clinic moved to its current location on Perkins Road, a building Dr. Hackett had constructed, where we have been proudly serving our clients for 46 years.
