Dr. Emily Barton Joins Foothills

On June 3, 2019, Dr. Emily Barton will be joining our staff.  Dr. Emily spent two summers interning with our practice. With two veterinarians on staff, we will be better equipped at meeting the growing need for exceptional large animal veterinary care in our community. See Dr. Emily’s complete bio here.

Construction Under Way

Foothills is getting a new home! We are under construction of Foothills Large Animal Hospital located in the Dysartsville community at 8786 NC 226 S in Nebo, 5.5 miles south of I-40 off of exit 86. The clinic will provide a barn to house patients over night and will have surgical facilities for our smaller patients (goats, sheep, pigs). Invasive equine surgeries will continue to be referred for care. We will continue providing on-the-farm care, but will be equipped to provide continued care at the clinic when needed.  Clients will also be able to haul their animals to the clinic for appointments to save on travel fees. Stay tuned for updates as construction progresses.
