Important Information

PVAH suffered damage from a fire on Tuesday, December 27 during business hours. All staff and patients were evacuated and safely transported to a secure location. We will be closed temporarily and post updates periodically on this site and our Facebook account. We have no official working phones or fax, but may be reached by email at We can send and receive text messages via Google Voice at 276-365-8183. We have our medical records secured and we are able to send electronic medical records to clients or other veterinary facilities if requested. If medications need to be refilled please email us and we will arrange either in-person pickup, home delivery, postage mailing, call into a human pharmacy, or an online pharmacy depending on the specific medication. We can still function in a very minimal altered capacity for ambulatory wellness visits only in 2023. We appreciate our client’s patience at this time. We are working very hard to meet the needs of our patients as best as possible and that may mean temporarily seeking care for surgery and illnesses at another veterinary facility. We hate the inconvenience to our clients and pets, and we fully intend to reopen in the future.

Thanks to all the area first responders that came to our aid, community members, friends and strangers, family members, and colleagues. We are so grateful to our neighbors at Huddle House who literally ran into a burning building to help us evacuate patients.

We will update you as we move ahead in the New Year. We will be taking the New Year’s holiday off to rest and recover. We will return to responding to messages on Tuesday, January 3, 2023.

We wish you all blessings and gratitude for your support and love!

PVAH staff and Dr. E. Shuler

Due to high demand of veterinary services in our region and in order to meet the needs of our patients in the most efficient way PVAH will only be seeing patients by appointment only.  We continue to offer curbside care for your convenience and to lessen your pets stress during visits.  There are no crowded lobby interactions with other animals and noises. Our patients are taken personally by staff directly to the veterinarian eliminating any unwanted interaction with other people or animals.  We have found the pets are less stressed during visits and less aggressive which allows the staff to give more personalized attention and care to each individual patient without distractions.  We have streamlined our scheduling to help as many patients as possible with the focused quality individualized care that they deserve.  We encourage clients to plan ahead and schedule in advance of their desired appointment time to ensure availability.  We are not an emergency clinic and we do not see walk-ins.  

Accepting new clients!

For the safety of our staff and patients all feline patients need to be in a carrier and canines need to be leashed.

(We are accepting cash as form of payment now)

Prescriptions and diets may be picked up at your convenience with our drop box.

Clients are encouraged to bring a cell phone to their appointment.
