Locally Owned, Independent Pet Care.

Capital Heights Veterinary Clinic is a small animal veterinary practice in the heart of the Mid-City/Goodwood area. We strive to deliver quality care to pets with a focus on personal service and convenience in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere.

We provide general veterinary care to companion animals, including rabbits and "pocket pets." Our services include wellness exams and parasite testing, vaccinations, microchipping, surgery, and dentistry. We also offer boarding, day care, and bathing. Drop-off service for checkups and minor problems is available for a small additional fee and is scheduled in advance.

Our Story

Established in 1973 as Mistretta Veterinary Clinic, our clinic has been providing quality care to Baton Rouge pets for over forty years. In June 2010, Dr. Emily Taylor purchased the practice and renamed it Capital Heights Veterinary Clinic. Dr. Bernard Mistretta is now retired and his practice philosophy remains the cornerstone of the clinic. We moved from our old location on Jefferson Highway to a newer and larger building at 7662 Goodwood Boulevard in August 2015.
