Mulford Animal Hospital is a privately owned and operated practice serving the Rockford, IL community since 1978. Nestled in the southeast corner of Rockford, we have ease of accessibility to I90, I39, wonderful downtown amenities, and beautiful forest preserves throughout the city. Our location is ideal with both country or suburban living at your fingertips and Madison, Milwaukee and Chicago just over an hour away. We are a 1.5 doctor practice with a full-time office manager/CVT and 10 support staff of CVTs(6), Vas(4) and receptionists(1).
We believe in the true word of TEAM and support our staff in all aspects of the field. Advancement in career and knowledge is one thing we believe in whole heartedly and love when our staff brings new ideas and goals to the table. Our owner has been actively involved in academia and mentoring throughout her career and looks forward to helping our future hire further develop their skills. We understand the value of bringing new ideas and skills to our practice and encourage growth. Our team has been cross trained so they can be utilized by our doctors to create a more efficient and less stressful work day.
We strive to treat pets as if they are our own by focusing on providing high quality care for our patients throughout their lifetime from preventative medicine at first visits to extra sensitivity with end-of-life care. While dogs and cats are our focus, we also care for pocket pets and exotics (not required but encouraged). Our collaborative approach allows continuity between our staff and reflects in the satisfaction of our clients, who are well established and easy to work with.
Our recently updated interior welcomes you as you walk in the door of our free-standing building with room to build and expand in the near future. We are equipped with digital radiography, digital dental radiography, ultrasound, therapy laser, 2 Cardell surgical monitors, full Idexx in house laboratory, and a private entrance to our separate comfort room. Maintaining a flexible work life balance is especially important and we will work with our new hire on developing a schedule that works for them.
