About Us

Diego Our Hospital Dog

The Hometown Veterinarian is an independent small animal hospital owned by Dr. Grant Jacobson which is located in Marshalltown, Iowa. In 2018, The Hometown Veterinarian was founded with the simple principle of bringing glory to God by serving the people and pets of the community through compassionate and ethical veterinary care. Upon opening, we have been warmly welcomed by the community which we serve. Our patients come from Marshalltown and the surrounding communities with many referral patients from across Iowa.

We are a modern, well-equipped facility providing compassionate and ethical care to cats, dogs, birds, reptiles, rabbits, ferrets, and many other species of pets. We are equipped to just handle just about any issue ranging from wellness care to complex medical and surgical problems (including orthopedics).

Our goal and commitment is to provide the highest standards of care in pain management, surgery, preventative care, medical care, dental care, and the overall well-being of our animal patients. We are lifelong learners and continually improve our care as new medical and surgical advances develop. 

Our core values are: Service, Compassion, & Healing

We live these values every day to become and to remain "Your other family doctor."
