About Animal Doctor Blue Hills


Animal Doctor Blue Hills, formerly known as Blue Hills Animal Hospital, joined the Animal Doctor family on May 1, 2019. We are excited to have Dr. Jennifer Arneson, Dr. Makiah Estes,  Dr. Terry Presnell, and now Dr. Tara Fountain at our Animal Doctor Blue Hills location.

At Animal Doctor Blue Hills, we see canine and feline family members! We provide a broad spectrum of diagnostic procedures through in-house testing and the use of external laboratories. We also work closely with Kansas State University Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital when special diagnostic procedures are required. Our facility includes a well-stocked pharmacy, in-hospital surgery suite, in-house digital x-ray capabilities, a closely supervised hospitalization area, and indoor boarding kennels with outdoor walking areas.

At Animal Doctor Blue Hills, we strive to offer not only sound advice, but also optimal veterinary care, thus allowing you the enjoyment of your companion for a maximum number of years. Our job is not only to treat your pet when he or she isn't feeling well, but also to help you learn how to keep your best friend happy and healthy.
