About Us

From reception to management, the team of professionals at Ashby Animal Clinic is dedicated to providing quality, expert pet care.

Founded by Dr. James G. Simmons in October of 1974, Ashby Animal Clinic operates with experienced, trained veterinarians supported by a knowledgeable staff who are all working toward the continued goal of ensuring that your small companion pet receives the very best in veterinary care.  Our veterinarians work with you as well as your pet, in order to evaluate the animal's health, diagnose and treat illnesses, provide routine preventative care, prescribe medication and perform surgery. We also specialize in laser therapy treatments and dental health.

We offer pet owners professional advice and resources as well as a wealth of valuable pet care information, including preventative measures such as wellness visits, spaying & neutering, and vaccinations to help preserve your pet's good health. We provide medical and surgical care for both simple and complex situations.

For your convenience, Ashby Animal Clinic has varied office hours throughout the week, including Saturdays, in order to best accommodate your schedule.  We also have after-hour emergency care available during evenings, weekends and holidays in the event of an urgent need.  Serving Shenandoah Valley pet owners with small animals such as dogs and cats, Ashby Animal Clinic is located on Garbers Church Road in Harrisonburg, Virginia.
