Veterinary Care

Haw Creek Animal Hospital
1007 Tunnel Rd

Dr. Sinclair has been taking care of our dogs since 2005. At one point we were up to 12 dogs so you can imagine that we got to know her very well. We have always received excellent care for our dogs from her. In recent years, they began offering extended hours to better serve the Asheville community.

Dr. Parsons has assisted us through 3 liters of German Shepherd puppies.  She and her staff were always available to answer questions by phone and help out in an emergency.

Dr. Galligan has been keeping our clients pets healthy for years.

Broad River Animal Hospital

4 Paws Farewell 

This group of veterinarians offers hospice palliative car and home euthanasia. I can’t say enough good things about our experiences with them. End of life care can be very difficult to handle and the support they offer is so helpful.
