Why Choose Us?

Jackson Animal Hospital is a locally owned and operated veterinary hospital that was founded in 2015 by Dr. Heather Carleton and Dr. Randy Acker. At Jackson Animal Hospital, we pride ourselves in offering a full spectrum of medical and emergency care, as well as advanced orthopedic services. Our team of four dedicated veterinarians, along with our professional staff, provide the highest level of veterinary medicine for our patients. Our hospital offers diagnostic and surgical services that are on par with those offered in human hospitals.

Dr. Randy Acker, also an owner of Sun Valley Animal Hospital, is known throughout the west as an outstanding orthopedic surgeon who has been practicing advanced orthopedic procedures, including Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomies (TPLOs), Joint Arthrodeses, Total Hip Replacements (THRs), Elbow Replacements, and Patellar Luxation repairs, for over 35 years. Dr. Acker has also been given the distinction of not only performing Total Hip Replacements, but of actually teaching the Kyon Total Hip Replacement course, where other surgeons learn how to do the procedure. He has taught the course seven times over the last decade and is certified by the Registry of Approved Continuing Education, a program of the American Association of Veterinary State Boards (AAVSB).

Dr. Heather Carleton has practiced Veterinary medicine since 2001, treating an entire range of patients including dogs, cats, horses, farm animals and exotic pets, and has also been an integral part of two local non-profits – the Animal Adoption Center and the Teton Raptor Center. In 2016, Dr. Carleton was named Citizen of the Year by the Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce. In 2017, she was named Employer of the year by the non-profit CES. (Community Entry Services). Dr. Carleton is also the Founder and Director of the Spay/Neuter Wyoming program that provides free spay and neuter clinics for the residents of the Wind River Indian Reservation.
