Since 1974, we have worked to provide pet owners in the Shenandoah Valley with valuable pet care information, including preventative measures such as wellness visits, spaying & neutering, and vaccinations to help preserve your pet's good health. We also provide medical and surgical care for both simple and complex situations and have been caring for your pets for more than 40 years. We invite you to learn about our types of care, staff, our Ashby's Angels Mercy Fund, check out current specials, make an appointment online, and learn more about All About Paws, our boarding, doggie daycare and grooming services right next door!
