Experience as an Emergency Veterinarian
Ability to practice and write prescriptions in Alabama
Set in the heart of the Tennessee Valley, Veterinary Regional Referral Hospital has served the community for over 40 years. As the first surgical referral center in Alabama, we have successfully partnered with over 250 veterinary clinics and provided thousands of orthopedic, neurological, and soft tissue surgeries to help the pets of the Tennessee Valley live their best lives. We are also one of the few emergency hospitals currently operating in North Alabama. When the local veterinarian is closed or unavailable, we are here, offering knowledgeable, effective, and compassionate treatment to every companion animal that comes through our doors.
Our facility maintains two large surgical suites and a radiographic suite which includes x-ray, ultrasound, CT, and endoscopy. We have a complete in-house IDEXX lab and a water treadmill for physical therapy and recovery. We also have a large on-site classroom for additional training opportunities and Continuing Education.
Recently we were awarded 501c3 status and have begun transitioning to become Newman Veterinary Research Hospital. As a research hospital, we will seek to join veterinarians together with medical doctors for the purpo...se of research. Organized similarly to St. Jude, it will be a place where pets that meet specific disease criteria can receive treatment regardless of cost or prognosis. We will seek to provide intensive treatment for patients presenting with certain diseases that affect canines as well as humans, in the hopes of helping both species. Our motto is this: "Every doctor should respect and learn from all life to better help any life."
