Knapp Veterinary Hospital is a Columbus, Ohio, veterinary/animal hospital dedicated to delivering the best in pet health care to you and your pet family members. We offer comprehensive veterinary care services ranging from preventive care, surgical and dentistry services, emergency vet services, dog and cat boarding, and more. Our experience and genuine affinity for animals is the reason why most of our client base is made up of patient referrals.
Knapp Veterinary Hospital was founded in 1945 by Columbus, Ohio, veterinarian Dr. J. Harold Knapp at 633 Oakland Park Avenue (across the street from the current hospital). Doctor Knapp was born in Lebanon, Ohio, and graduated from The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 1932. He remained on the faculty until starting his own veterinary practice. Knapp Veterinary Hospital was one of the first veterinary practices in Columbus devoted to the care and treatment of pet animals. In 1948, the practice relocated to the current address and has served clients and their pets ever since.
In the fall of 1996, Knapp Veterinary Hospital moved into a new hospital building which was constructed behind the previous facility. The current animal hospital allows our experienced Columbus veterinarians and veterinary support staff to provide the highest quality veterinary care
