Welcome

This is the web site of the 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 plus several pre-vet & vet tech 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 and at the bottom of the page.  
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
         Bonnie Chait - Head Nurse and General Manager
Sarah Fletcher- Groomer and Assistant Manager
         Melissa Gibson - Head Receptionist
         Stephanie - Receptionist & pet pleaser

But, before you go, know that ...
        
We now have VetStreet, an Online Service where you get see your pet's records, communicate with us, and make appointments.

We now Offer Laser Therapy.  Our state of the art, class four medical laser greatly reduces pain, inflammation, and swelling.  And it speeds healing time for wounds, injuries, and incisions.  And it's very effective in conjunction with or instead of medications for arthritis and other chronic conditions

We have a great Grooming Service

We have very nice Boarding facilities with a cute "Bed & Breakfast Inn" just for cats, a separate, pleasant building for smaller dogs, and a big boarding kennel for larger dogs with air conditioned indoor-outdoor runs.

We share our facilities with an all volunteer, No Kill Pet Shelter ... more about  this a few paragraphs below...

We have a very active and interesting FaceBook Page

And finally...

I hope you will visit my original web site where I discuss the veterinary profession, the pet food industry, veterinary history, the human animal bond, and pretty much everything I know about treating many different pet diseases.
The web address is AnimalPetDoctor.com  Take a peek.


Thanks again,  Roger Ross DVM

We look forward to meeting you and taking great care of your better than human 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, anxious 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.

A Little 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, a secure link for donations, and some preaching about pet owner responsibility. Thanks to volunteer Janet Kowalski for keeping this site current and interesting.
