Since 1984, Sawtooth Animal Center has been pampering pets of the Wood River Valley. From preventative wellness checkups, to surgery and advanced internal medicine, or a nice stay in our Pet Resort, the Sawtooth Animal Center has you and your companions covered.


The Sawtooth Animal Center started in 1984 with a mission to provide high quality medicine, health services, and surgery to our beloved pets in Blaine County and southern Idaho. Our mission is to provide top-of-the-line care with the most cost effective methods possible.

The specially designed 10,000 square foot building is equipped with advanced diagnostic, therapeutic and surgical equipment. The hospital is specifically designed to provide the best care possible for your pet, with an extensive surgery, isolation areas and quiet recovery rooms.
