Catoosa Small Animal Hospital was established in 1980 by Dr. Steve Weir, and was located off the highway in a smaller facility. In 1982,
Dr. Bob Shoup became a partner and both doctors practiced medicine together. Since then, we have added Dr. Laura Embry, Dr. Sarah Smith, and Dr. Caleb Weir as associates to help us with the workload.
They are very intelligent and compassionate veterinarians that have been a valuable asset to the practice.
We moved to our present location in October of 2001, and are very happy to have a facility that is thoroughly equipped to provide your pet
with the latest in veterinary care. Our facility has a fully equipped lab area, ultrasound, surgical, radiological, and boarding facilities.
Early on, we decided to limit our practice to small animals — meaning dogs, cats, birds, ferrets, rabbits, and other small pets. We choose
to do this for two reasons:
First, WE WANT TO BE HERE FOR YOU. We currently have seven veterinarians and over 40 support staff to serve you. By limiting
our practice to small animals and never being out on the farm, there is always someone available during office hours to take care of appointments and emergencies. "Drop-ins" are welcome, however, an
appointment will prevent a possible delay in the waiting room, and will help us take care of your pet as quickly and as easily as possible.
Second, in veterinary medicine as in human medicine, knowledge is exponentially increasing every year. Because of this, it is
impossible for us to be knowledgeable on every species. We want to be great small animal veterinarians and let someone else be experts on large animals. Our goal at Catoosa Small Animal Hospital is
QUALITY CARE. We realize that pets in today's society play a very important role in people's lives. Dogs, cats, and other small pets are more a part of the family than they have ever been in the
past. We simply wish to provide the best possible care at reasonable prices, and want you to know that we CARE about your pet! We try to always do the following:
- Give you a thorough explanation of our diagnosis and answer any questions you may have.
- Provide written instructions on any medication we dispense to prevent any confusion as to treatment.
- Call you to check on the progress of surgical and medical cases a few days after their visit.
- Have a doctor available to answer any questions you may have on the phone, or return your call as soon as possible.
Our regular office hours are as follows:
- Monday, Tuesday,Wednesday, Thursday: 7:00 AM-8:00 PM
- Friday: 7:00 AM to 6:00 PM
- Saturday: 8:00AM to Noon
Our late hours are on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, and our Saturday hours are intended to help families in which
both the husband and wife work. In addition, for your convenience, you are always welcome to drop off your pet in the morning on your way to work, and pick him up that evening on your way home. We
will gladly look your pet over and call you at work to recommend any needed treatment or explain what we find.
If you have an emergency and need to see a doctor outside of regular hours, simply call the regular clinic number (266-4090) and you
will be instructed on how to reach the doctor on call. We see our own emergencies until 10:00 PM, and then turn them over to Animal Emergency Center in Tulsa. Call is resumed by one of our veterinarians at 8:00 AM the following morning. It
is our desire to be available when you need us.
Once again, thank you for choosing us as your veterinarians. We will strive to provide your pets with the quality, compassionate, and
cost-effective care that they need and deserve.
