Welcome to Shawnee Animal Hospital!

Shawnee Animal Hospital in Pottawatomie County, Oklahoma. We provide exceptional quality medicine for dogs, cats, exotics, horses, and other large animals.

Founded in 1952, Shawnee Animal Hospital has a long history of service and commitment to the health of both our community's animal companions in addition to livestock. Because we have been part of the community for decades, we see our neighbors and clients as family. In addition to delivering quality veterinary medicine, we are proud to share a warm and accommodating business approach with each of our clients. To demonstrate our love for this community, we have made donations to local organizations such as 4-H, the local Vocational School, Horse Shows and Racing, and local sporting teams throughout our history.

Shawnee Animal Hospital is a leading animal hospital in Oklahoma, with patients traveling far distances for our award-winning care. Our experienced medical team is led by the acclaimed Dr. Mike Steward, nominated to the International Equine Veterinary Hall of Fame in 2009 for his contribution to horse medicine.

"Over the last 60 years Shawnee Animal Hospital has become one of the premier mixed animal practices in the state of Oklahoma by providing a very high quality of medicine at affordable prices. Our mission is to maintain and improve this status and provide our owners and employees an enjoyable place to work, with productive lives, all the while keeping the business healthy and growing."
