Hawthorne Animal Hospital reopens clinic in Troy

After being closed for more than two years, Hawthorne Animal Hospital is reopening its Troy location on a limited basis.

Hawthorne’s Troy clinic, located at 1516 Alarth Drive, had been closed since March of 2020 due to a combination of COVID-19 pandemic restrictions and staffing issues.

Hawthorne’s main location, at 5 Cougar Drive in Glen Carbon, has remained open throughout that time and has been busier than ever.

“We always thought that (Troy) office made it easier for clients in that area to get in for wellness appointments and rechecks rather than coming into the main office,” said Dr. Paul Myer, chief of staff for Hawthorne. “We appreciate everyone’s patience getting through these last couple years and we’re getting back up to speed.

“Our staff is excited about it, and it will make it easier to work around the crazy schedule that we have at our Glen Carbon location. We’re commonly booked out several weeks to a month or more.”


Hawthorne’s vet clinic reopened on Thursday, July 14 and will open again from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Thursday, July 28.

“We’re still working on trying to get more staff, so we’re only going to be open for a few days to start with,” Myer said. “We’re going to be open on Thursdays in August and we hope to open for more days in September.”

The clinic provides nose-to-tail wellness exams and vaccinations by appointment. Any pet owner who wishes to schedule an exam for their dog or cat can call 618-288-3971. Pets experiencing a medical emergency will be directed to Hawthorne’s 24/7 animal hospital in Glen Carbon.

“Like most veterinary clinics across the U.S., Hawthorne experienced a greater demand for our services over the past two years as pet ownership skyrocketed,” Myer said. “With the reopening of our second location, we’re offering Troy residents access to quality vet services closer to home and shortening wait times for patients at our Glen Carbon hospital. Our Troy clinic is just one more way we’re making care convenient for the families we serve.”

Founded in 1956, Hawthorne is staffed by a team of veterinarians with more than 125 years of combined experience in all areas of medical care and is equipped with cutting-edge technology to improve the health outcomes of the pets it treats. Hawthorne is accredited by the American Animal Hospital Association (AAAH), a designation only 12-17% of vet clinics in the U.S. currently hold.

Hawthorne’s Troy clinic opened in 2000.

Myer added that Dr. Kirk Hubbard will be the veterinarian at the clinic as it reopens.

“Dr. Hubbard has been with us for several years and his primary focus is wellness and general practice,” Myer said.

New and current Hawthorne patients who wish to save on their pet’s care are invited to enroll in a Hawthorne Wellness Plan. By spreading the cost of services over 12 months, pet owners can provide their dog or cat with preventative medicine and wellness visits while saving hundreds of dollars a year. Add-on services, such as dental care and heartworm preventatives, ensure all basic pet care is covered. For more information, visit hawthorneanimals.com/wellness/plans.

“The plan makes it a lot easier to budget the expense of taking care of your pet,” Myer said.
