Adamson Veterinary Services, began its journey in November of 1984. Founder and former owner Dr. Daniel Adamson along with his wife Cathy, opened the small animal practice, and made it their home. Cathy, a former registered nurse, managed the practice doing all the paper work by hand as computers were not available at the time. They ran the clinic, and raised their three beautiful children in the practice, as the upstairs was their home for several years.
Dr. Adamson is a 1980 Graduate of The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine. In the very beginning of the practice he not only did small animal medicine, but he would also travel to local farms to treat large animals too. After a couple years, he focused only on small animal medicine. The practice focused on general medicine, vaccines, small surgeries, and most testing was out sourced to labs. The practice started out small with a lobby, one exam room and a small surgical suite.
After 20 years of building his practice, he began to out grow his working space. He began adding on to the practice, and the state of the art facility was completed in 2004. Now housing three exam rooms, a large waiting/reception area, large surgical suite, treatment area, x-ray, in house testing, and numerous amounts of kennels to comfortably house our four-footed guests. While being state of the art, we managed to keep our small town feel and hominess. We think that is what makes our practice special. We want people to feel at home, as well as comfortable here. In 2009, Dr. Vickey Brooks, an associate here since 2004 and a 2003 Graduate from The Ross University of Veterinary Medicine, bought the practice from Dr. Adamson, for he wanted to retire. She has since kept the practice growing. The practice is now home to three full time veterinarians, one part time veterinarian, four receptionists, two technicians, three assistants, and one manager. We now offer most of our testing in house, along with ultrasound, endoscopy, x-ray, EKG and hospitalization treatment. We pride ourselves on offering gentle loving care as well as support to you and your furry friends. We also are always looking to exceed your expectations along with provide the best care we possibly can. We just want to thank all of our clients and the community, for without you, your support, and entrusting us with the care of your pets, we would not be here!
