Dr. Ken Kolka founded Bay Animal Hospital in 1956 as a single doctor, mixed farm animal and small animal practice. We have provided veterinary care for several generations of the same families for the last 50 years! Our practice is grateful for these long-term relationships and the thousands of new friends we have met through "word of mouth" referrals. Today, Bay Animal Hospital is a four doctor small animal practice with a staff of 18 compassionate and talented team members. We provide comprehensive medical services for dogs, cats, ferrets, rabbits, and other small mammals. Although much has changed in veterinary medicine in the last 50 years, our commitment to providing compassionate, honest and quality care has not. The highest compliment a client can pay us is to refer a family member, friend or colleague to our hospital.

We believe strongly in preventative medicine,beyond traditional vaccinations and parasite control. Pets need regular wellness checkups because they age 5 to 7 times faster than humans. Wellness checkups,including laboratory-screening tests,allow us to detect many diseases in the earliest stages,when intervention is the most effective. Our staff will recommend different wellness protocols depending on your pet's life stage.
