Deerfield Veterinary Hospital History
Caring for pets located across Southwest Missouri’s communities of Springfield, Republic, Nixa, Ozark, and Rogersville for decades.
From our first day back in 1992, our animal hospital's team has grown from a two-person veterinary set-up with just a receptionist and a groomer to a full-service pet hospital providing the greater Springfield, Missouri area with medical and surgical care, required vaccinations, and boarding and spa services.
Our founders include the beloved Dr. Caldwell and Dr. Roche. Dr. Caldwell is a native of Springfield, Missouri, and attended Glendale High School. Dr. Roche was born and raised in St. Louis but now calls Springfield home. Both doctors graduated from the University of Missouri College of Veterinary Medicine in Columbia, Missouri in 1991. They moved to Springfield in 1992 to build this veterinary hospital. Along with the growth of our veterinary facilities, our pet health team has expanded since 1992 to a current staff of twelve. The veterinarians and staff of Deerfield Veterinary Hospital are committed to providing you the highest quality of care for your pet.
Our facility is a full-service pet hospital. Our team of veterinarians and staff provide medical and surgical care as well as boarding and bathing services for your cat and dog. We have on-site lab diagnostics and blood testing, allowing pre-surgical and senior screenings in our pet hospital. We have both X-ray and ultrasound and the latest and safest anesthetics available for your pet during surgery.
