Roxy Ann Veterinary Hospital was established in 1957 by Dr.
J.N. Starnes who ran the practice for thirty years. He passed the practice to his son Dr.
Kevin N. Starnes in 1987 who has been guiding the business since. In 2002 Roxy Ann Veterinary Hospital
hired Dr. Jan Engeset who brought his thirty years of experience to make the
hospital a two veterinarian practice. Much
has changed in the Rogue Valley and veterinary medicine over the years but one
philosophy has seen this clinic consistently flourish. Down to earth communication. It is what everybody wants from their
own doctor but seldom receives.
options for your pets care. Communication
about basic preventive care or multiple options if your pet gets sick or
injured. We talk one on one to see what your individual philosophy is
on caring for your pet. For many
people their pet is like their child and there is no limit to the efforts they
request. For others there are
varying degrees of treatment based upon economics or humane treatment of the
animal. Medical jargon is explained
in a way that makes sense. As you
can imagine discussion of the options can be a detailed and difficult task. This
is what our doctors excel at. Non
judgmental and sometimes emotional decision making. We help you help your pet according to your philosophy.
The in and out
quick and cheap with little to no discussion is not an acceptable option at Roxy
Ann Veterinary Hospital. We perform
procedures and treat patients in a professional manner in a modern facility. We will not cut corners or treat animals
harshly because we are so busy trying to do large volumes of work and save
people money. We offer competitive
pricing for quality work. A
procedure or treatment expense is based upon what we need to charge to do it
correctly. These statements may
seem obvious to some but others may not realize the time and care that goes into
performing surgery or treating animals properly.
If preventing a litter cheaply is needed we do honor SNYP certificates
for spays or neuters as a courtesy to keep overpopulation and unwanted animals
Your visit to Roxy Ann Veterinary Hospital
should be just that, a visit. Like
sitting down and visiting a friend. If
you ask our clients why they keep coming back it is because of this feeling. We try our best to make you and your pet
know we care. We want you there to visit and to be able to do what is needed
with as little stress possible. Further
emphasizing our commitment we also do house calls, animal pick ups, car calls,
and we also do our own emergency after hours calls.
