If you live in Post Falls or the surrounding areas such as Rathdrum, Liberty Lake, or the Spokane Valley, then you have picked the perfect site to find a veterinarian. Your pet's health and well being is very important to us and we will take every step to give your pet the best possible care.

First I would like to thank you all, our clients, for the support of our hospital. I could not be happier with the clients that we have, Dr. Luce and I enjoy our daily interactions with all of you, as well as the wonderful pets that you all have. As our hospital grows, it makes the communication about the ever changing world of veterinary medicine just slightly more difficult, only due to reaching out to all of you. Those of you that have been with the hospital for a long time know that we are very “pragmatic” doctors. We make every attempt to stay very current in medicine and practice the best medicine possible without jumping immediately on the bandwagon and prescribing what we deem to be unnecessary treatments that we would not perform on our own pets. We are constantly evaluating our protocols (vaccines, intestinal parasite control, diagnostic strategies, anesthetic and surgical protocols, etc.) in the interest of making both you and your pet as safe and healthy as they can be.

I hope you enjoy our website. I would love to hear feedback from you regarding format, content, and how to improve it. I would like to take one last minute before you move on to thank my staff; They are the most wonderful group of people that a doctor could ask to work with, they make my days fun and exciting, they are very talented individuals that take wonderful care of your pets, and they really enjoy all of you. I could not do what I do without every one of them.

We have a number of resources for you to learn about how to take better care of your pets. Browse around and look at our articles and pet videos.  If you want to ask a question call us or email us and we'll promptly get back to you.River City Animal Hospital is very easy to get to, and you can find directions on our Contact Us page. You can also subscribe to our newsletter which is created especially for Post Falls pet owners. In between your veterinary visits, your pet will benefit from you reading these free informative articles.

At River City Animal Hospital, we treat your pets like the valued family members they are.
