Wellness & Annual Exams
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 paperwork, by hand as computers were not available at the time. They maintained an apartment on the second floor of the hospital for many years before they moved to their new home several years later.
Dr. Adamson was 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 would also travel to local farms to treat large animals too. After, a couple of years, he focused only on small animal medicine. The practice focused on general medicine, vaccines, small surgeries, and most testing was outsourced to labs. The practice started out small, with a lobby, 1 exam room, and a small surgical suite.
Adamson Veterinary Services began its journey in November of 1984.
