Sun City Animal Hospital is located in the heart of Summerlin, which is the largest master planned community in Las Vegas. The hospital has been a cornerstone of the community since 1993 providing care for companion animals as well as acting as a resource for education and community service. Nearby is Red Rock Canyon for hiking, Mount Charleston for skiing, Lake Mead for water sports, and Dumont Dunes for desert motor sports. The hospital enjoys a great clientele that expects compassionate and progressive veterinary care that we love to provide.

As a hospital we believe in strong mentorship as a critical component in developing young veterinarians as they enter practice and the staff veterinarians have over 30 years of combined experience in veterinary medicine and surgery to foster this.
