Our Story

Through this relentless commitment and dedication we believe in offering exceptional care and preserving the integrity of the profession. Our entire team believes in taking the best possible care of every patient and client we are blessed with.

Our Values

We have a culture built on three core values: Teamwork, Leadership, and Compassion. These values are behind everything we do. They also guide us as we execute our mission.


From the operating room to the exam room to the front desk, each individual believes in helping each other get the job done. Just like our patients and clients are counting on us, we’re counting on you and your coworkers to come together, as a team, and deliver exceptional care to our patients, their families, and referring veterinarians. This means lending a hand when needed, working extra hours at times, and working collaboratively with others.


GAHSC is a leader in our industry in providing medical excellence through patient care, to North Alabama. We believe in identifying problems and stepping forward with solutions. At GAHSC everyone is accountable to lead and make a difference.


Compassion must be at the core of everything we do at GAHSC as we care for our patients, clients and referral partner’s needs. They are entrusting us with the care of their pets and patients and share in our desire to deliver the best possible outcomes. Compassion for our coworkers is key; treating others with kindness is simply the GAHSC way.
