About Us

Our Story

During the past 40 years, Asheville Veterinary Associates, located in Asheville, NC, has earned a reputation for providing state-of-the-art veterinary care by a service-oriented staff that meets and exceeds our veterinary clients' expectations every day. We understand how important it is to you that your pet receives the best veterinary care possible at a reasonable price.

Asheville Veterinary Associates was originally founded in 1972 when Patton Avenue Animal Hospital and South Asheville Veterinary Hospital merged. The hospital on Patton Avenue moved to its current Asheville location on New Leicester Highway in 2005.

Our South Asheville office was originally located on Hendersonville Road and we moved to our present location in 2007.

Your Pet Deserves the Best Care

We also understand that accidents and illness happen even to the healthiest of pets. This is where Asheville Veterinary Associates excels. Our veterinarians' skills are enhanced by modern diagnostic imaging equipment, in-house medical testing capabilities, a complete surgical suite, and a wide range of internal medicine expertise and resources. Additionally, our ability to manage complex medical and surgical cases reduces the frequency of referrals to specialists. This allows our clients to receive care for their pets from people they have come to know, at a location that is convenient for all our clients from the greater Asheville area.
