About Us

Welcome to Ridgeview Animal Hospital—we’re glad you’re here!  

Ridgeview Animal Hospital was established by Dr. Joanne Gaines in a growing West Omaha in 2001. The goal was to open a practice where pets could receive progressive, quality veterinary care efficiently and with a personal touch. As West Omaha evolved and expanded, so have we, continuously adapting to better serve the needs of our community’s pets.  

Today, our purpose is to create a better life for pets and people through education, progressive medicine, and healthy relationships. Our team is committed to our core values: 

  • Family – Healthy relationships with co-workers and clients are vital. 
  • Teamwork – We must work together in a concerted effort toward the same goals. 
  • Progressive – Driven to adapt and improve. 
  • Compassionate – Caring for all through our actions and words. 
  • Integrity – Honesty and transparency guide our actions and interactions.

As a proud member of the Omaha community, we deeply value the local essence of our practice, fostering collaborations that enhance the well-being of our neighborhood pets. In 2022, we created the Omaha Vets Group (OVG), a regional network of clinics in the Metro area connected to share resources and provide your pet with access to the best patient care at any of the locations.  

What makes Ridgeview Animal Hospital unique? 

We Value Your Time: 
We appreciate our clients and recognize that your time is precious. Our goal is for little to no wait time, ushering clients into exam rooms shortly after check-in. We will be working diligently behind the scenes utilizing teamwork, so the technicians and doctors will maximize their time with clients in the exam rooms. We are staffed well to handle calls without needing to call back hours later in most cases. 

Integrated Management: 
Our managers work in our clinics, not in another state! Our veterinarians practice daily in the clinics and know the day-to-day ebb and flow of the clinics.  

We’re part of Omaha Vets Group (OVG). OVG practices work together to provide you with consistent pricing, processes, protocols, values, and operations! We use technology to easily share files between clinics, and our veterinarians collaborate and consult weekly on cases. As a member, we can provide you with better pricing and offer referrals to other group members for services or products if we are unavailable or out of stock.  

At Ridgeview Animal Hospital, our team of veterinarians, managers, and staff strive to make your pet’s overall experience a priority. We offer full-service veterinary care for dogs, cats, pocket pets, and exotic pets, including: 

With a proactive approach to preventive care and a commitment to educating our clients, we aspire to be your trusted ally throughout every chapter of your pet’s life. Call (402) 333-3366 to schedule an appointment or request an appointment online today!
