Appalachian Vet Services -  truck

Large Animal Veterinarian

At Appalachian Vet, we offer 100% of the large animal services that a general practice veterinary clinic does, and are able to refer emergency surgical cases, or those requiring intensive care and hospitalization to a local University about 15 minutes away. That means our clinical team is able to see a diverse range of cases that enables you to practice a broad range of skills on a wide variety of species. A large team also means learning new skills through ongoing internal training curricula and educational initiatives.

Appalachian Advantage

We have developed an adaptable algorithm to minimize stressful on-call rotations, alleviate the fear of the unknown, and ensure our team has the ability to have clinical support available, 24-7. Our clinic utilizes innovative technology to help doctors connect with clients anywhere, and be able to completely disconnect at the end of the day.
