Welcome New Clients!

We are accepting new patients! Fairgrounds Animal Hospital invites you to come see our friendly, clean facility and meet our caring, professional staff in Reno. Our veterinary hospital upholds the highest standards of medicine, patient care, and excellent client service. We make a promise to every client and patient to offer the best medicine we can provide and to help our clients find options for care that suit their lifestyle and needs.

Your First Visit

Please bring any existing health and vaccine records for your pets. It may be helpful to compile a list of questions or concerns you have about your pet’s health to discuss with your veterinarian. For your convenience, we offer a New Client form you can submit online or print out and bring with you to your first appointment. Having the form filled out beforehand is great because it shortens wait time in the lobby and gets you into your exam that much faster!


All pets need vaccinations to protect them against dangerous viral and bacterial diseases, such as rabies, feline leukemia virus (FeLV) or canine parvovirus.

Recommended vaccines for dogs include:

  • Rabies
  • Da2pp
  • Bordetella
  • Canine Influenza

Recommended vaccines for cats include:

  • FeLV
  • Rabies

Protection should begin early when they’re puppies and kittens, and should be supplemented with boosters when they become adults. Your veterinarian will determine if your pet is healthy enough for vaccinations and will make recommendations for each and every pet. All pets seen at Fairgrounds Animal Hospital must have a current rabies vaccine. Proof of a current rabies vaccine must be brought to your pet’s first visit. If no proof is provided and you would like for your pet to be seen, a rabies vaccine must be administered. You can learn more about your pets recommended vaccines here.

Financial Information

Advances in veterinary medicine over the past 20 years have greatly increased quality of medicine in the veterinary field, and with that veterinary practices and pet owners can reasonably expect some increase in the cost of treatment and preventative care. If you are concerned about the affordability of pet health care, our staff is always happy to help you form a plan of action. We are here for you to discuss your options and create financial plans that work within your individual circumstances.

Investing in pet insurance will help you to cover routine costs from vaccines, heartworm, and fecal testing, spay or neuter procedures, and even dental work for a low monthly cost. Some pet insurance plans also offer protection against unexpected health costs. It is well to have an emergency plan to be prepared for illness or injury that strikes when we least expect it. We can offer advice and informational resources to help you formulate a solid plan.

Payment Options

We accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express, and CareCredit. You may also pay by cash or check. We are a privately owned business, and animal hospitals do not receive any government funds to help clients that cannot afford care. Because of this, we unfortunately cannot extend credit in the form of payment plans to any of our clients. All payment is due upon checkout. If there may be any financial difficulty that will present a challenge to you, we do will do everything we can to help you find resources to obtain financial assistance.


We are happy to offer senior citizens and military service members a 10% discount.
