Our Practice

This clinic has always been considered a "family practice", as the employees  within have always felt like family.  Dr. Joe Holder first built and opened South Side Animal Hospital (SSAH) in May of 1968 as its first owner. It since passed to previous owner, Dr. Jones, who retired in 2021 and then to long-time associate veterinarian Dr. Darcie Evans.

If you live in Indianapolis or the surrounding area and need a trusted veterinarian to care for your pets – look no further. Your pets’ health and wellbeing are very important to us, and we take every possible measure to give your animals the care they deserve.
