About Wayne Heights Animal Hospital

Wayne Heights Animal Hospital opened its doors in July of 1996 with a vision to provide quality veterinary services with care and compassion. This high standard of care got us where we are today. In 2007, Drs. John and Charlene Barnes purchased the facility, and have continued the hospital’s excellent reputation.

Our Services and Treatments

Preventative Care

Regular checkups and preventative care are the keys to keeping your pet healthy and happy! These visits include physical examinations, vaccinations, nutrition counseling, senior pet care and diagnostics, and behavioral counseling.

Dental Services

Good oral health is a major component of your pet’s overall health and can prevent harmful diseases down the line. That’s why we offer oral and dental examinations, cleanings, polishing and fluoride treatments, digital dental radiographs, extractions, and more.

Nutritional Counseling

Great nutrition and a healthy weight are imperative for your pet’s lifelong health. We offer weight loss programs for overweight pets, diet plans for pets with food allergies, and veterinary diets or supplements to aid your pet’s unique needs.

  • FeLV & FIV

Everyone at Wayne Heights Animal Hospital is very caring and understanding. Lucy usually sees Dr Charlene and she is excellent, always takes the time to make sure I understand Lucy’s test results and what I need to do to help her. Dr John has always been great with her too. Would recommend them for your pet!” – Maleah P.

This Wayne Heights clinic has the nicest, most welcoming staff ever!! From explaining things in terms I can understand, to giving me the best input without attempting to drain my wallet, to helping my fur babies when they need it most, I love y’all. Thank you for all that you do!” – Sarah C.

We just recently moved to the area and have taken all our pets (2 cats and a dog). We truly picked this office for location and that they would actually take our pets in a reasonable time frame. I am so glad we landed here. Both doctors and the staff are so friendly to both humans and furry friends. Always take time to answer questions. Also, seem much less expensive than our old vet!” – Robin M.

This office was amazing with my kitten. I called at closing with an issue and the next morning they called me back right away. They were able to get us in that same day to have her seen. The staff was very friendly and seemed genuinely concerned about my 13-week-old kitten. I highly recommend this office. This was the first time we have been there and definitely not the last. We switched all of our pets to this office.” – Amber B.
