Get to know us:
Mill Creek Veterinary Hospital is a 2-doctor, well-established, full-service, mixed animal veterinary hospital providing comprehensive medical, surgical and dental care. We're located on the outskirts of Walla Walla and have been serving our community since 1985 when Dr. Bill Acock built MCVH from the ground up. Our goal is to practice the highest quality medicine and surgery with compassion and an emphasis on client education. Our entire healthcare team is committed to providing personal attention to the unique concerns of each individual animal owner. The 2200 sqft facility includes a well-stocked pharmacy, in-hospital surgery suite, in-house x-ray capabilities, a closely supervised hospitalization area, and indoor boarding kennels. We split large animal on-call services with other hospitals in the area, and our small animal patients receive afterhour emergency care at a hospital in Tri Cities that has board certified surgeons and a well-versed emergency team.
