The Hospital's Beginnings

At Animal Medical Center of Jefferson City, we have a long history of providing high-quality veterinary services for your animal family members.

Founded in 1952 by Dr. Ernest E. Burgess and operated out of his home, Burgess Veterinary Hospital began by providing the local community with excellent pet care services. Years later, the hospital was renamed Howard Veterinary Hospital when Dr. James P. Howard purchased the practice in 1984 upon Dr. Burgess’s retirement. In 2009, Dr. Greg Boyer purchased the practice and renamed the hospital Animal Medical Center of Jefferson City, continuing the hospital’s work of providing excellent veterinary care in a caring atmosphere.

While the hospital has undergone many changes over 60-plus years of service, the hospital’s commitment to provide quality care for family pets has remained constant. Please take some time to learn about the services we provide and about why you can trust us with your pet's health, now and for years to come. If you have any questions or would like to schedule an appointment, please email or call (573) 636-4626. We look forward to meeting you and your pet.
