Orchard Animal Hospital

Orchard Animal Hospital was founded in 1979 by Dr. Paul McWilliams. Our philosophy of practicing the highest quality medicine performed in a personal and friendly office has remained a strong core value throughout our history. The practice was purchased by Dr. Craig Maloney in 2008. Thousands of local animals have walked, slithered, prowled, and flown through our doors since our opening, but now we choose to focus on cats and dogs. We are located at 110 North Orchard Street (between Franklin and Emerald on Orchard).

  • Craig D. Maloney, DVM, DABVP


    Dr. Maloney pursued his undergraduate training in molecular biology at the University of Chicago, received his doctorate in veterinary medicine from Colorado State University in 1996, and pursued an MBA from California Lutheran University after completing vet school. Prior to moving to Idaho he worked in various critical care practices in southern California and later served as the medical director of the multi-hospital Central Valley Veterinary Group in Salt Lake City. In 1999 Dr. Maloney moved with his family to Boise and purchased Mountain View Animal Hospital, which he continues to own and operate. In 2008 Dr. Maloney purchased Orchard Animal Hospital, serving as medical director of the two facilities.

    In 2006 Dr. Maloney was certified as a specialist by the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners, Canine and Feline Practice. Currently he is one of only 2 veterinarians in Idaho to have met this certification. He has practice interests in pain management and oncology, and is an active member of the Veterinary Cancer Society and the International Veterinary Association for Pain Management. Recently the IVAPM announced that it will begin to allow veterinarians to become certified in pain management, and Dr. Maloney is now pursuing this training and specialty certification.

    Both Mountain View Animal Hospital and Orchard Animal Hospital are certified by the American Animal Hospital Association, a stringent voluntary certification that has only been achieved by seven hospitals in Idaho. To reach AAHA accreditation a hospital must meet strict guidelines for equipment, training, staffing, medical protocols, record keeping, and in addition must undergo a regular physical inspection.

    In his free time he enjoys scuba diving, braiding leather, gardening, outdoor sports, and spending time with his wife and his five children. He is owned by two dogs, five cats, several snakes, and a magnificent Quarter Horse named Smoke.

  • Harry Houdini

    Harry Houdini has been at Orchard Animal Hospital since 2008. He originally was brought in as a stray with a broken leg. Houdini won our hearts with his charming personality and purrs. The medical staff fixed the fracture and set Houdini up as a permanent resident. He is now the clinic-cat-supervisor. Houdini is often found sitting on exam room tables, ensuring that all appointments run on time and are accompanied by a treat (for himself of course). He has a meow that can be heard for miles and he won't take no for an answer. His favorite hobby is sitting in front of computer monitors, interfering with the workflow.
