Providing the best possible health care services to your pet

Our veterinary clinic was first opened in the early 1980s as Affordable Animal Hospital by Dr. Henry Fairleigh. It was one of four clinics owned by Fairco, Inc. In the late 1980s, the name was changed to Fairleigh Pet Center-Preston. In 1989, Dr. Caryl Kline joined the staff. She purchased the clinic in November 1994 and changed the name to Preston Animal Hospital a few years later.

In December 2019, we began our partnership with Heartland Veterinary Partners. We have a lot of clientele who have been with us since the very beginning. Our team also loves to welcome new clients to our practice. We look forward to many more years of serving our clients and their pets!

all animals deserve compassionate veterinary care.

Wellness Care

Wellness care is important during all stages of your pet’s life. Developing an annual routine for their diet, vaccinations, and exercise plan is essential to the well-being of your four-legged friend. Routine wellness visits allow all of us to get to know you and your pet.


We offer overnight boarding services for both dogs and cats. Leaving your pet behind while away on vacation can be stressful. However, boarding your pet at Preston Animal Hospital means that they will be cared for by a highly skilled veterinary team.


We strive to keep your pet as comfortable and relaxed as possible throughout the grooming appointment, and we’ll give you a call as soon as your pet is ready to be picked up. You can always expect your pet to receive quality, compassionate care.

I’ve found my new vet! Previously my old vet didn’t seem to interested in my pet but more so on my wallet. These guys instantly gave me good vibes and handled my pet with care. You can tell they genuinely care.

Dr Kline and her staff are wonderful!! They are great with the patients, family and rescue pups /cats. Dr Kline’s medical care truly made a difference in our foster pups quality of life. Hard to believe she’s the same fur baby.
