Giving Back to the Auburn Community
At PetVet Animal Health Center, we believe that being a good neighbor is just as important as caring for the pets you love. One of our goals is to have a positive impact on the Auburn community, and to do that, we've partnered with a handful of events and organizations in the area.
This non-profit, faith based organization offers a number of programs tailored to children with disabilities. Their main program, Hope on Horseback gives children the opportunity to experience the joys and therapeutic potential of horseback riding in a controlled, safe environment. Other programs include working with companion animals and learning about gardens by doing projects in the farm's teaching garden. You can volunteer, donate, and learn more on their website.
The city of Auburn has two fantastic veterinary universities in its midst. Both the Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine and Tuskegee University School of Veterinary Medicine offer outstanding veterinary medicine education. Our very own Dr. Brawner has spoken to the Student Chapter of the American Veterinary Medical Association at both universities. With his extensive knowledge in veterinary dental health, he has also assisted in Auburn University's dentistry labs. Additionally, he interacts with students in AU's Veterinary Business Management Association club and senior students in their veterinary practice management rotation.
We also want all of our local veterinary students to know that our door is always open to you and we would love to service you in any way we can during your time here in Auburn.
We are proud to be a supporter of this wonderful art museum. Arts play such an important role in so many people's lives and help us to see our world from a different perspective. By supporting the Jules Collins Smith Museum of Fine Arts, we hope to bring the joy of art to more people.
PetVet Animal Health Center realizes that so many children foster a love of animals and that love may very well manifest as an interest in veterinary medicine. To nurture this budding curiosity, Dr. Brawner and Dr. Riggs have spoken to children at local pre-schools, elementary schools, and the Auburn library.
If you would like to have one of our veterinarians speak to a group of children or students you work with, please let us know. We are always ready to share our love of veterinary medicine!
We participate every year in the annual Bark in the Park event held by the Auburn Parks and Recreation Department in Kiesel Park. Supporting our local community parks, where so many people spend time with their pets, is an important part of our mission. We also sponsor several youth sport teams to encourage kids to move and enjoy the outdoors (even if they do have to leave their pet at home!).
The clinic has separate rooms for cats and dogs, and the tables are heated with little indents. My cat was so relaxed and comfortable....it made the experience so much easier. The staff is also amazing...so kind and gentle! I highly recommend them!!!!
I loved my experience at PetVet. As it was my first visit here, I was very satisfied. Dr. Brawner was very thorough with every concern that I had.
This is by far the best place to take your pet! They do not rush through the exam, they take their time to explaining things to you, they go over all of your options for different situations and never pressure you into anything. We trust them wholeheartedly; no one compares to the doctors and staff here. Thank you guys for all you do!
Dr. Brawner and the whole staff are FANTASTIC! My Paisley girl loves them (probably because they always give her treats) and they do a wonderful job of calming this helicopter dog mom down! Only place I'd trust to take care of my babies!
Staff was so friendly. Called in the early afternoon and was able to make an appointment the same day. Staff made sure we understood everything that was going on with our dog and helped us get our boy better.
I went to Dr. Brawner and PetVet while I lived in Auburn. After moving to Birmingham my English Bulldog needed a tail amputation. I didn't hesitate to drive back to Auburn so Dr. Brawner could perform the surgery. I couldn't be more pleased with the results. Best Vet in Alabama in my opinion!
These people are amazing. I would recommend them to anyone. Ive been using them for over 2 years and they are very nice, respectful, and positive about everything.
The staff is so sweet! Dr Brawner did an amazing job with our kitty surgery & we couldn't be more pleased. He was so kind, definitely impressed with the phone calls after the surgery to keep me updated. Would definitely go back!
