Abita Veterinary Practice welcomes you!


Pets are valuable companions that flourish with proper care and a loving home. With their lifespans not being as long as ours, we want to keep them with us for as long as we can. Our goal here at Abita Veterinary Practice is to help you achieve the longest life possible for your loved one. Our staff deeply cares for all of our patients as they do for their own pets and we are dedicated to help you make the best possible decisions about your pet’s health.

We are a full service small animal hospital that can help provide diagnostics, treatments, and medication for the health and well being of your pet. We have an on-site laboratory and x-ray for fast and efficient diagnosis for the treatment of dogs and cats. We offer soft tissue surgery, internal medicine, and dentistry for your pet. Some surgeries may require general anesthesia while others may only need a local anesthetic. The same is true for dentistry; stop by to see if your dog qualifies for an anesthesia free dental. In addition, we have other basic services that include wellness exams, health certificates, vaccines, microchips, pediatric counseling, geriatric counseling, bathing, grooming, and boarding. We also offer house calls to the Abita Springs residents.

We have a full on-site pharmacy and work in conjunction with compounding pharmacies as well. In addition, we offer heartworm medication, flea/tick medications and pet food.

We have a computerized record system that helps provide accurate medical records. We are able to keep a structured record of all your medications and medical history.

We hope that we can be a valued service to both you and your pets. Thanks for visiting our website!
