This is the web site of the Pet Loving, FoxNest
Veterinary Hospital in beautiful Upstate South Carolina.

We love taking care of pets, and while we started out as a very small clinic in 1984, we have grown into a very busy hospital with 3 veterinarians and a staff of over 20 including several pre-vet students in training.

Our goals are simple: to treat our clients respectfully and fairly, and to treat our patients with compassion, knowledge, and skill.

We try to do this at a reasonable cost without cutting corners; we try to make the whole experience for both you and your pet
as convenient and pleasant as possible, and we try very hard to
be informative, explain all your options, and to listen to your concerns.

This web site is designed to help answer a lot of your questions, curiosity, and concerns.  I hope you enjoy it.  The list of contents is displayed on your left.  

Feel free to drop by the clinic to talk or look around or phone to ask questions.  882-4488      Thanks very much, 
         Roger Ross - Senior Veterinarian
         Ryan Dunagin, DVM - Chief of Surgery
Trent Hunnicutt, DVM

Now Offering Laser Therapy.  Our state of the art medical laser greatly reduces pain, inflammation, and swelling.  And it speeds healing time for wounds, injuries, and incisions.  And great in conjunction with or instead of medications for arthritis and other chronic conditions

In addition to our veterinary services, we also have a great Groomer, a cute Boarding "Bed & Breakfast Inn" just for cats, a new Boarding Inn for smaller dogs, and a newly remodeled, brighter boarding kennel for bigger dogs with indoor-outdoor runs.

I've written another web site where I discuss pretty much everything I know about treating pet diseases and pet topics.  Take a peek.  It's quite popular world wide, and if you google "pet doctor" or "animal doctor" it's likely to come up near the top of the search engine list.  The address is

Thanks again,  Roger Ross DVM

We look forward to meeting you and taking great care of your pet friends and companions.

Our receptionists will be glad to answer most of your
non-medical questions.
So feel free to call...882-4488. 

But please be a little patient...we often have only one or two receptionists, who, in addition to answering the phones, are often dealing with excited children, excited pets, and helping to keep us organized.  Not an easy job.

Our eMail address is FoxNest@nctv.com if you have something interesting to send us, but we're not set up to make appointments, answer medical questions and so forth by email so please use the phone for anything important.

About our No Kill Pet Shelter
We started pet shelter many years ago and now, with the help of lots of volunteers from our community, we clean up, treat, test, vaccinate, neuter, and find homes for over 300 pets a year. The shelter is officially called the Animal Rescue Fund of South Carolina, but everyone calls it "ARF" and it all takes place on the grounds of The FoxNest Hospital.  Come take a look. 

Or look at the separate web site we have at www.ARF-SC.org.  It includes pictures of all the pets needing homes, lots of information and stories, a schedule of fund raising events, and so forth. Thanks to volunteer Janet Kowalski for keeping this site current and interesting.

Once again, thanks for visiting our websites.  And please, check out our FaceBook page at "FoxNest Veterinary" to see our latest comments, promotions, and pictures.
