Welcome to Broad Ripple Animal Clinic

Since 1981, Broad Ripple Animal Clinic has been proudly serving pets and people throughout Indianapolis, Indiana. We believe that pets are part of the family, yours and ours, deserving of the very best care. In order to achieve this level of care, we not only provide the highest level of veterinary medicine but we also take great care to listen to you and make sure that you, the owner, are well informed and are part of the process of caring for your pet.  We want you to feel secure that you are making sound decisions and that we are all working together as a team, in the best interests of you and your pet.

As an American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) accredited clinic since 1985, our team of veterinarians and support staff adheres to the highest standards of facility and pet care. Only 15% of all practices are AAHA certified (re-accreditation takes place every 3 years). However, our greatest source of pride is found in the praise of our clients and the satisfied purrs and wagging tails of our patients.

Get to know your veterinarian

We have found that the key to quality veterinary care is a combination of medical competence, empathy for pet owners and compassion for our animal companions. Our veterinarians will listen to your concerns, diagnose any medical conditions, help you understand your options and work with you to make the right decisions for you and your pet.

At the Broad Ripple Animal Clinic our team is made up of a diverse group of veterinarians and support staff professionals who bring their love for animals to work with them every day. Our veterinary team comes from all backgrounds, and has joined the Broad Ripple Animal Clinic because of their desire to make a difference in the lives of animals, as well as the people who love those animals.

Emergency vet care

We understand that you have a busy schedule and your pet's health care needs may not always fit into a 9-5 timeframe. This is why we keep extended hours Monday through Thursday from 8am to 8pm, Friday and Saturday from 8am-6pm, and Sunday from 10am-2pm. We do our best to accommodate urgent veterinary care appointments, and to provide services regardless of scheduling factors.

After hours, we work closely with a local 24-hour emergency care facility. Call our regular phone number (317-257-5334) and you can be automatically transferred to an emergency clinic.

For current clients, we offer a technician on call line which is available Monday through Friday from the time we close until 10:00pm. This allows you to discuss with a technician if it would be beneficial for your pet to be seen at an emergency clinic that night or if an exam could be scheduled next day with one of our doctors. To reach our technician, call our regular phone number and select this option from the menu.

Schedule an appointment at our veterinary clinic

We try to make scheduling a veterinary clinic appointment as convenient as possible for you. There are several ways to easily schedule an appointment for your pet to be seen at our veterinary clinic:

  1. Fill out our online appointment request form
  2. Contact us by phone at (317) 257-5334
  3. Stop into our veterinary clinic to schedule an appointment in person. View map and directions
