Welcome to Riverside Animal Hospital

Your Veterinarian in Kearney, Nebraska
Call us at (308) 234-2617


In the midst of all the confusion concerning the coronavirus, we want to make sure we keep everyone informed on our current protocol. We will remain open and our hours will remain the same. To help keep our clients, staff and patients safe during this fluid situation we have implemented "curbside" pick up and drop off appointments only. When you arrive in the parking lot we ask that you call the front desk and we will send a technician out to check you in and grab your pet. After your appointment we will take payment over the phone and a technician will deliver your pet back to your vehicle.  All prescription refills and pet food can still be picked up at the clinic by calling ahead with payment over the phone and we will bring your order to your vehicle.  We will continue to do our best to keep everyone in our building safe and healthy during this time. If you have any questions or concerns please call our office at 308-234-2617. We will also keep our Facebook page up to date on any changes concerning this protocol.
