Providing Quality Veterinary Services To Reno & Sparks For Over 30 Years

We encourage making appointments so that we may operate as efficiently as possible, however, we are able to accommodate daytime emergencies should they arise.

Our doctors will not rush your pet’s care and will work to provide you and your pet the excellent care that all our patients receive. If you wish to schedule an appointment, give us a call at 775-356-8323

We accept cash, local checks with ID, Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express. In addition, we also accept Care Credit. For those clients that need to establish a Care Credit account, please talk to our receptionist. Care Credit is basically a credit card administered through a private company to help fund medical bills.

There may be times that hospitalization for your pet may be recommended and we will do everything we can to make your friend comfortable. Please let us know if your pet tends to consume bedding materials (towels, sheep like fleeces, blankets). We do not have staff here overnight so if your pet needs monitoring overnight or any treatments, we will discuss having him/her transferred to Animal Emergency Center for overnight care.

We encourage everyone to visit their pet while they are in the hospital. Obviously, you miss your family pet and they miss you as well. In most cases, visiting your pet improves their attitude and aids in their recovery. However, there may be times when a calm and quiet environment may be ideal as well. Please call and let us know when you plan to visit so we can discuss the situation with you and attempt to have your pet disconnected from any equipment that may disrupt your time together.

Unfortunately emergencies happen to everyone and are always inconvenient. If an emergency occurs during office hours, please bring your pet to us. If time allows, please call us to let us know the nature of your emergency.

After hours emergencies are referred to the Animal Emergency Clinic. This is a well equipped and well-staffed state of the art hospital that is open when other veterinary offices are closed. They can handle any type of emergency.  Animal Emergency Center is located on Neil Rd. (formerly Del Monte) just off highway 395. You can reach the AEC by calling 851-3600. If you call our office after hours, you will also be given this number.

  • I had a wonderful experience at this vet hospital. I brought my dog in who was very ill and they took a look at him right away even though I didn’t have an appointment. They made sure he was stable and then it was only a 30 minute wait for an exam. Kathleen

Pyramid Veterinary Hospital was established by Dr. Douglas Nesler in 1982. Since that time, Pyramid Veterinary Hospital has grown to become a 8-doctor practice dedicated to providing compassionate, state of the art care, and outstanding client education.

We sincerely appreciate all the trust our clients have placed in our doctors and staff over the past years to care for their beloved family pets. Without the support and confidence of our clients, we could not have grown and continued to provide the superior care your family pet deserves.
