When you are looking for a veterinary care clinic you should be able to count on superior care and excellent service. We at Blue Ridge Veterinary Clinic in Banner Elk NC have assembled a select team of veterinary professionals to bring you the best possible healthcare for your pet. We have a full service veterinary facility which is clean, personal, comfortable, and efficient. Call 828-963-6641 to schedule an appointment and we will find a time that is convenient for you.
At least once a year, you should take your pet in for a check-up. This will include a full physical exam, a check for internal & external parasites, and may include recommendations for teeth and gum cleaning if needed. Dr. Gail Hoyme will check the health of your pet from head to tail, and you will be very happy you came to Blue Ridge Veterinary Clinic for service.
Bring in any medical history you have of your pet when you come to our vet clinic. It's best to keep a journal of your pet's health throughout his or her life, including behavioral shifts. If you have something like this, share it with our team. If not, let us know everything that you think will be important. Dr. Hoyme can still work with whatever information you have.
In some circumstances, Dr. Hoyme will refer you to a specialist who has advanced expertise in areas such as internal medicine, ophthalmology, orthopedic surgery, or for ICU care when round-the-clock supervision is imperative. We also have an excellent relationship with the local emergency clinic to help care for your pet when we are unavailable.
