Edgewood Animal Hospital was originally established in 1971. Since that time, the practice has changed, evolved and improved into the modern pet clinic it is today. We are proud to have served the Cedar Rapids and Marion area for more than 4 decades, and we strive to carry on the solid reputation our original owners worked so hard to establish within the community. While many of the faces of the clinic have changed over the years, the one thing that hasn’t is our unwavering commitment to helping you and your pet enjoy as many happy, healthy years of companionship as possible.
