Mission Veterinary Hospital is a full service mixed animal practice serving the people, pets and livestock of the Mission area and surrounding communities
We offer comprehensive services, cutting edge technology and treatment options, superior care and exceptional service. More importantly, we focus on delivering that care in a way that builds trust and establishes relationships.
Our hospital is made complete with a team of highly skilled, caring veterinary professionals, all of whom share the same unwavering passion for helping animals. It’s what gets us out of bed every morning and drives us to always do our very best in everything we do. Each one of us is a pet owner, so we are intimately familiar with what our clients and their pets are going through. We draw from our own experiences to give our care that compassionate, personal touch that you simply won’t find anywhere else.
We are a client-patient focused practice, which means we always go above and beyond to make sure the people and animals with whom we work are happy and comfortable. Our patients include small companion animals, such as dogs and cats, as well as larger animals, like horses, cattle and other livestock. The quality of care we deliver is equal, whether he or she is the best friend that shares your home or the majestic creature that takes up residence out in the barn.
Our services are designed to support a lifetime of good health for each and every patient we serve. We don’t just give your pet an injection and send you on your way. To the contrary, we want to partner with you, taking every measure within our power to help that special creature enjoy as many happy, healthy years as possible. We seek out the best medical and surgical procedures to decrease discomfort and get patients back on the path to good health again as soon as possible.
Our clients realize that we truly care about their pets and our five veterinarians have expertise in numerous fields. We also provide some of the most exceptional state of the art equipment and medicine in a warm, welcoming atmosphere. Above all else, we want you and your pet to feel comfortable and right at home when you’re visiting with us, and if that means getting down on the floor to meet them at their level, offering extra pats and belly rubs, or slipping them a few extra treats – so be it! We treat every patient we serve as if he or she were our very own.

In addition to our commitment to animal health care, we are also active members in our community. Our doctors dedicate a portion of their busy schedules to high school programs, such as Future Farmers of America (FFA), 4-H and Career Days at local schools. We also assist and provide services during local livestock shows.
We are dedicated to financially supporting our local animal shelter (Palm Valley Animal Center), and their mission to care for homeless animals. Our hospital also participates in promoting careers in the veterinary field through local high school programs and medical vocational schools in the Rio Grande Valley.
Beyond all of this, we remain focused on what’s most important: you and your animal family member. While we are most certainly proud of our comprehensive care, extensive services, state of the art facility and dedicated team, we are most proud of the fact that our clients trust the care of their most precious companions to us. We are also honored that they continue to support us over many years with generations of pets. It is these special, lifelong relationships that make us happiest in what we do.
If you’re in the market for a new vet – whatever the reason – we encourage you to come in and meet us. We’re confident that when you experience the difference a client-patient focused practice can make in the lifelong care of your animal companion, you’ll want to partner with us for many years to come.
