We practice veterinary medicine to help better the lives of our patients and their humans. Our love for animals drives everything that we do!
About Us
After working as a veterinarian for 8 years, Dr. Lora Ryan became frustrated because she was being rushed with patients and unable to expand her horizons with new treatments. She decided the best way to serve her patients and their humans was to open Riverside Veterinary Hospital.
 
In 2006, by slowly transforming a small brick ranch house, Riverside Veterinary was born! It has since become a loving home for not only 4-legged furry pets but also for the extended family of employees.
 
Knowing that prevention is much better than treatment, we offer a wide range of services and treatments to help keep your furbaby healthy and happy; from wellness exams and vaccinations to dentistry and complex surgeries.
 
Riverside Rehab, opened in February 2016, is our canine aquatic rehabilitation center. We offer programs for pre- and post-surgical rehabilitation, weight loss, sports conditioning and recreational swims. We also opened Tidy Tails, our do-it-yourself bathing stations.
 
Riverside is continuing to grow, as we are always looking for new and better ways to treat our patients.
 
Always accepting new patients, we cannot wait to welcome you and your pets into the Riverside family!
