Care to Share
The search for a gentle and knowledgeable veterinarian can be challenging. Our practice would not be as successful and rewarding as it is today without new patients and clients. Our best new clients are referred by our favorite existing clients. Thank you for referring your friends and family!
History of Our Hospital
Dr. Shields purchased BVH from Dr. Cristy in May of 1968 and practiced for four years in a 2-room attic sun-porch on Pickering Street. In 1972, the old Beanery restaurant on Route 36 was modified to become the veterinary hospital until November 10, 2006 when we moved into our amazing new facility on the edge of town. A lot has changed through all these years. The dog has moved from the barnyard to the back yard, from the back yard to the living room, and from the living room to the bedroom and even in the master’s bed! Cats and pocket pets are no longer disposable—their personality cannot be replaced! Our hospital focus has adapted as well—going from predominately farm animal care to primarily pet care. The bond between a human and their pet has transformed the practice of veterinary medicine, and Brookville Veterinary Hospital has grown to accommodate this need. Now every technology is employed to preserve the life of your beloved family member. We’ve gone from a doctor with a couple helpers to a health-care team devoted to meeting your pet’s need.
Enjoy a longer, healthier life with your pet!
Client and Community Education is our priority. The doctors and staff are committed to providing you with a thorough explanation of your pet’s medical condition, including information regarding any diagnostic or test procedures that will be performed. We are happy to answer all of your questions. With pride, we will show you the entire facility and explain our services.
