Our hospital is a full service practice offering our patients comprehensive general, emergency and specialty medicine and surgery for small animal patients. With five doctors, we can care for everything from routine wellness and vaccination visits to complex reproductive, orthopedic, and ophthalmic surgeries. Non- traditional therapy is also in our arsenal such as Shockwave, Acupuncture and rehabilitative physical therapy.
You will find a large selection of high quality diets including Hill’s Science Diet age specific formulas and Prescription diet therapeutic foods. We also carry select Royal Canin and Purina specialty diets for allergies and other medical conditions. Our shampoos, dental care product, treats and flea medications are all carefully chosen by our veterinary staff for safety and effectiveness unlike many over the counter products which can actually harm your pet. When visiting our hospital please take a moment to look through the “ Behind the Scenes” and “Our Patients” photo albums. Most clients never get the opportunity to see how “high tech” modern veterinary medicine can be – so we created a “tour” to show you what happens in the treatment and surgical areas of our hospital. We love all our patients but we are proud to be trusted with some of the top show dogs, cats and horses in the country. Our books show Westminster winners and Vogue “feline” models not to mention some just great clients and the champions of their hearts.

Joseph H. Kinnarney, DVM, MS
Dr. Kinnarney graduated from Cornell College of Veterinary Medicine in 1980. Shortly after, he began his career at Reidsville Veterinary Hospital practicing mixed-animal medicine. Served well by his skills and dedication, he quickly gained a partnership that lead to majority ownership, and now exclusively practices small animal medicine. While keeping up to speed as a general practitioner, his primary interest is small animal surgery, especially enjoying complex orthopedic cases. In addition to his surgical case load, show dog breeders from coast to coast demand his attention, as he also holds an MS in Reproductive Physiology.
In 1995, Dr. Kinnarney’s black Scottie, Champion Gaelforce PostScript, better known to her fans as Peggy Sue, was crowned Best in Show at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show. Her progeny lives on and stamps her mark on the breed in the show ring and the homes of families who entrusted this gifted breeder. His private breeding program, Jovial Kennels, excels in producing quality Scottish Terriers and Miniature Schnauzers.
Dr. Kinnarney’s competitive spirit started with horses during his childhood. He particularly enjoys exhibiting in English Pleasure. To date, his Arabian Horses wear the rose garlands from over 15 US and Canadian National Championships.
