What Our Clients Say

  • This is the best vet hospital in baton rouge. They loved and took great care of my puppy even after the visit ended. They blessed my dog with another chance of life that other vets didn't offer. Dr. Ritchie was available through email throughout my dog's cancer diagnosis. They treated my baby like family even after he passed. My new puppy will def be a patient for Dr. Ritchie.

  • High quality care at very reasonable prices for exams and shots. After years of struggling with digestive problems with my cat, Dr. Ritchie advised me to try a very easy and inexpensive solution that was never recommended to me to before. A few weeks later, problem solved. I feel that Dr. Ritchie is very attentive to details and less likely to jump to the most expensive solution first and instead start with practical, conservative measures before asking patients to fork out hundreds of dollars.

  • If you are looking for outstanding quality and care for your dog or cat, especially for issues related to oral and dental health, Perkins Road Veterinary Hospital is the only place you need visit.
