IN-HOUSE BLOOD WORK & DIAGNOSTICS
Lab results in minutes
Accurate, fast results can be life-saving. With cutting-edge technology in house, we are able to get answers within minutes: no more waiting days for blood results, immediately identify eye-conditions with our Tono-pen. Benefit now from our advanced diagnostic equipment!
Non-invasive Diagnostic Imaging
With our state-of-the-art ultrasound machine, we are able to identify pregnancy earlier than with traditional x-ray methods. Ultrasound also allows us to identify and diagnose various internal issues otherwise only visible by exploratory surgery, sparing your pet from invasive procedure when possible and saving you money.
The safety and health of all our patients are top priority, and prevention is vital. As such, we encourage all our clients to remain current on their pets' vaccination schedules. We offer all relevant vaccines to protect the animals in our community from contagious infections.
We offer intensive care, isolation, and recovery hospitalization. Our dedicated, vented isolation room keeps animals with infectious conditions separated from other hospitalized patients and includes viewing glass for consistent monitoring. Additionally, our dog and cat wards are separated and equipped with soothing music to provide a low-stress environment for hospitalized patients.
SENIOR WELLNESS CARE
We are blessed to live in the age of modern medicine. With quality veterinary care, pets are living longer lives. This means many of us have beloved senior pets that require specialty care. We offer senior health plans to keep your aging pets feeling comfortable in their twilight years.
Help us help you! Microchipping is an excellent way to identify animals in order to return them safely home. Animals with microchips are given the advantage of being identified quickly and easily with a simple scan of their microchip. We can help you register your microchip so that you have free access to the ASPCA Poison Control Hotline as well as other proactive pet-recovery services, preparing you in the event of an emergency or lost pet.
Extended business hours
We hope to alleviate the inconvenience associated with having to take off work to bring your animal to the vet by extending our business hours both into early morning and into the evening to save you time and money while maintaining top-quality medical care. While accommodating both scheduled appointments and urgent veterinary emergencies, we do our best to eliminate any wait time whenever possible.
ON-CALL EMERGENCY CARE
Our doctors provide their personal home phone numbers for urgent "on-call" veterinary emergencies that may arise after Cedar City Animal Hospital has closed. They do their best to remain available and return calls whenever possible. We appreciate your understanding that while Dr. Norton offers this optional service, as a father of seven, there may be times when he is unavailable to take calls at home. Thank you for your consideration of his personal time with your on-call requests.
Through more than a decade of experience as a mixed-animal veterinarian and through many years serving the Cedar City and surrounding areas, Dr. Norton has identified areas in which he feels we can be of greater service to our community. Cedar City Animal Hospital is an independent and comprehensive full-service veterinary facility, opened by Dr. Norton as a way to meet the growing need in our community for AfterHours care while maintaining full-service daytime availability as well.
Our mission is to serve both our patients and our clients by providing quality medicine, convenience, and a pleasant experience for animal and owner alike. Cedar City Animal Hospital provides a unique and innovative opportunity for client convenience when it comes to medical care for your pets. We offer a wide range of business hours (see our contact page for details) in hopes of being available to clients with various personal schedules. We understand that taking off work to bring your animal to the vet during the day or calling in an off-duty vet requires not only inconvenience, but additional financial expense. Our hope is to reduce that burden on clients and veterinarians by offering these unique operating hours.
As a full-service facility, we are equipped to receive and treat both routine veterinary cases and veterinary emergencies and are dedicated to providing top-quality medical care for our patients as well as a positive and enjoyable experience for our clients.
Our clinic is conveniently located in the Blackrock Shopping Center on West 200 N/Hwy56, in Cedar City, next door to Chef Alfredo's Restaraunte Italiano and across the street from the Market Grill and Stock Yards.

GET TO KNOW
Dr. Norton is well-loved in our community for his sincere concern for pet owners and animals alike as well as his fun and quirky sense of humor. His endearing personality is enhanced by his sincere desire to listen and solve difficult veterinary cases, while meeting the needs of both the patient and the owner.
Dr. Norton is a family man and father of seven children. He and his wife started their family with a puppy, immediately followed by five wonderful and rambunctious boys. They were shocked to learn that their sixth child was a girl, but have enjoyed having her feminine influence in the home! They added another son to their family in February, 2018. Dr. Norton's first love is family. He especially loves spending time with his family in the outdoors, whether that time is spent hiking through nature or tending to his garden.
Growing up in the woods of Kentucky, Dr. Norton developed a deep love for being surrounded by and caring for plants and animals. But, as a veterinarian, he loves his interaction with people as much as his interaction with animals. He can often be caught joking around with clients in the clinic and enjoys maintaining a light and friendly atmosphere with his staff.
Dr. Norton received his Bachelors of Animal Science degree from Brigham Young University in 2002. He then went on to obtain both his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from Iowa State University and his Masters of Public Health degree from the University of Iowa in 2007. He has worked full-time as a mixed-animal veterinarian since that time and loves what he does.
GET TO KNOW
Jennifer Norton is married to Dr. Norton and, together they own and operate Cedar City Animal Hospital. Mrs. Norton is originally from Las Vegas and met Dr. Norton when they attended the same University. As one of seven daughters of a prominent dentist, she grew up participating in the healthcare profession, working both as a dental assistant and helping her parents behind the scenes as they ran their Dental Office. She followed in her mother's footsteps by obtaining higher education, raising her own 7 children, and opening and operating her own healthcare facility with her doctor husband.
Mrs. Norton graduated from Brigham Young University with a B.S. in Psychology. Additionally, she received undergraduate education in Architecture, which, upon graduation, gave her the necessary skills to be accepted on scholarship to The University of Illinois School of Architecture Masters program. However, in order to stay with her husband while he attended Iowa State University Veterinary School, Jennifer declined the scholarship and instead supported the family while Dr. Norton attended Veterinary School in Iowa by working construction, teaching private piano and guitar lessons, and working as a professional accompanist. Jennifer gave birth to Dr. Norton's first two children during this time, while their third child was born in Flagstaff, AZ and their remaining four children were born after the family moved here to Cedar City.
Shortly after the birth of their 6th child and while pregnant with their 7th, Jennifer worked together with Dr. Norton and their children to start up Cedar City Animal Hospital in 2017. The couple established their business model by combining their backgrounds in healthcare, architecture, construction, psychology, and music. Mrs. Norton designed the hospital, oversaw the build-out, and participated in the actual build. She places great emphasis on ensuring the hospital is an inviting place of comfort for her staff, clientele, and patients by focusing on the psychology of human- and animal-interaction as well as the architectural psychology of the environment and its effect on the health of employees, clients, and patients. She also handles the business matters, advertising, books, web-design, hiring, and staff-training. As a stay-at-home mother, Jennifer runs the business primarily from home where her primary commitment is to her family.
