We Welcome You

and the communities of the valley. We are proud

Caring for all your family

It is our mission to treat each pet as if they are a member of our own family. We practice respect, courtesy, empathy and responsibility on a daily basis. It is these characteristics that set us apart from other clinics as we want your entire experience with Palo Verde Animal Hospital to be beneficial to you and your pet.

More About UsMake An Appointment

It is with mixed emotions that we announce the retirement of our beloved Dr. Ross Babcock. For more than 50 years, Dr. Babcock has been an active part of the community, not only providing compassionate care for the community’s pets, but also devoting his free time to community organizations such as the Boy Scouts and Phoenix Lions Club. With a passion for avian and exotic medicine, Dr. Babcock always made sure that animals of all shapes and sizes had somewhere to go for excellent veterinary care.

While his time in practice will come to a close at the end of the month, he will forever be a part of the Palo Verde team and we thank him dearly for everything he has done for the community and our hospital over the years.

With Dr. Babcock’s departure, we will temporarily be referring avian and exotic patients to a nearby specialty practice. Please contact our team at (602) 944-9661 to discuss local care options for your avian or exotic pets. As always, our team remains dedicated to providing only the highest level of care to our patients, and we look forward to serving you and your pets for the years to come.
