About our animal hospital in Farmville

About The Ridge Animal Hospital

Ridge Animal Hospital was opened over thirty years ago by Dr. James B. Gates. Since then, the hospital has grown by leaps and bounds over the years into a successful facility that prioritizes patient care and client relationships. With the addition of new doctors and staff in our varied history, the character of the Ridge has developed to be a unique blend of personalities and friendliness. We have also become a staple of the community. Our business emphasizes the need to place the pet first and make the focus of our attention the welfare and comfort of your loved one. We work hard to provide you with the best possible veterinary care at an affordable cost. 

Currently, we have four doctors on staff with a variety of backgrounds and personalities as well as a close-knit support staff composed of full-time and part-time employees. Our goal as a hospital is to continue our exceptional service to our patients and clients while maintaining the same cozy environment and personal touch for which we're known.
