Our Story

Appalachian Veterinary Services has been in the practice of mixed animal veterinary medicine in the New River Valley for over 30 years. Originally founded in 1991 by Dr. Kent Adams and as of 2020 under the new ownership and management of Dr. Alexandru Pop, Appalachian is the practice people turn to when seeking veterinary care in the Christiansburg area. The team and culture at Appalachian are some of the most special things about our practice. We believe happy people take better care of animals, and we do everything with a hint of positivity. We have an enthusiastic and energetic team of four doctors and four support staff ready to take on our community’s veterinary needs. The AVS team employs a fun and energetic mindset rooted in discipline, wellbeing, and compassion towards our patients and their owners. We have a haul-in clinic, as well as a fleet of mobile veterinary trucks that can come right to where your animals live. Call or text us today so we can get to know you, your animals and set up an appointment to join our family of animal lovers.
