Terry Animal Hospital has tradition dating back 3 generations.     Dr. Paul Perrier has been the owner of Terry Animal Hospital for 23 years (3/2013). Not only is he our head surgeon & veterinarian, but his proactive spirit also maintains the hospital. You can find him anywhere from heading up the everyday affairs of the hospital to keeping with grounds maintenance.

     Please take a moment to read the History of 'TERRY' Animal Hospital. It is something of which we are very proud.

Remodeled Receptionist Station     Our hospital is always moving forward! The entire waiting room (including reception station) has been remodeled. This includes the ceiling, new benches, floors, guest restroom, & even a walk-on scale that makes it convenient for everyone looking to check the weight of a very large dog!
     We have expanded our pharmacy, nearly doubling the amount of medications we can stock so when you leave the hospital, you also leave with everything you need to treat your pet's condition.

Digital Radiography (x-rays)
     We have upgraded our x-rays & "gone digital." The technology of digital x-ray (computed radiography) produces higher-quality images that we can send electronically or copy onto CDs. It increases time efficiency as well as eliminates exposure to older processing chemicals.

     In addition, our surgery suite has been completely remodeled & includes state-of-the-art equipment for our surgery patients. We make use of monitoring equipment such as (but not limited to) capnography, electrocautery, & pulse-oximetry. We also use the newest patient-warming apparatus effectively maintaining the core temperature of our surgical patients.

     A new 4th examination room has been added to keep appointments flowing efficiently. This new examination room is brightly lit & very modern in appearance. It is lined with stainless-steel cabinets & drawers from wall to wall. In this room, there is a stainless-steel examination table with motorized controls to raise & lower the table (for those very large patients).
     Additional equipment also includes a state-of-the art dental suite,examination tables with motorized lift operation & ophthalmic corneal bur (used for debridement of indolent corneal ulcers).

     Besides expanding our treatment center with additional work stations, we've also installed new cages in our highest-traffic area of the hospital.
     We recently finished renovating our bathing/ washing room by adding a larger tub complete with walk-in ramp for large dogs. Other areas of the bathing room have also been remodeled.

     Terry Animal Hospital is constantly being renovated & upgraded. The hospital was repainted & the entrance-way remodeled with beautiful landscaping in 2011 (see below).
     Digital media is a large part of our everyday life nowadays. The Terry Animal Hospital's website had its 3-year anniversary this July 2013. You can also find us on Facebook for frequent updates, pictures, and important news. Both the website and Facebook operations were created and continue to be managed by Dr. Funk.
