Our Story

Centralia Animal Hospital was established in 1993 by Dr. Shirley Bunting to provide high quality, compassionate veterinary care to family pets and to provide open communication with their family members.

Our goal is to offer sound advice, and optimal veterinary care, so you may enjoy your companion for a many years. We feel our job as your family pet care provider is to care for your pet when he or she isn't feeling well, and to partner with you to keep your pet healthy, and happy throughout their life.

We provide a variety of diagnostic procedures including in-house testing and the use of referral laboratories. We also work closely with local and regional specialty centers when advanced diagnostic procedures and expertise are required. The facility includes a well-stocked pharmacy, in-hospital surgery suite, in-house x-ray capabilities, and a closely supervised hospitalization area.

We also believe that routine wellness exams and preventative care is extremely important to your pets present and long term well being.
