The Chamber Ambassadors honored Pineywoods Veterinary Hospital as Leading Business of the Week for April 9, 2018.
Pineywoods Veterinary Hospital works to better the health of the small animals of Valdosta, treating every patient as if it were their own pet.
Pineywoods makes it their responsibility to build relationships with pet owners and keep them up to date on the rapidly evolving world of veterinary medicine. In these conversations, Pineywoods emphasizes prevention. Dr. Amanda Perry, veterinarian and owner of Pineywoods, said, “We believe that educating clients about preventative maintenance helps to avoid costly treatments in the future.”
Dr. Perry named the hospital after the family farm she grew up on in Colquitt County, Georgia. After graduating from the University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine in 1997, she now specializes in brachycephalic breeds—dogs such as pugs, whose skulls are broad and short, leading to a variety of health problems. As a woman owning a predominantly female business, Perry considers the prosperity of Pineywoods a major accomplishment.
Pineywoods works regularly with the Lowndes County Animal Shelter and the Lowndes County Human Society, providing low-cost surgeries, rabies vaccinations, and microchips. “We consider it a privilege to be able to offer high-level care to the communities we serve,” said Dr. Perry.
Dr. Perry appreciates the Chamber for their “remarkable work in creating a community for local businesses in the area.” In reference to Leading Business of the Week, she added, “As with this spotlight recognition, the Chamber works to make this community aware of the many services available to them… leading to the success of these businesses.”
Stop by Pineywoods Veterinary Hospital at 4310 N Valdosta Road or call them at 229-219-0777. They are open Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
