Ardmore Companion Animal Hospital in Ardmore, Tennessee is a privately owned, well established, small animal practice with a great community reputation for kind and compassionate care.
The geographic location of the hospital in an essentially rural town very near the tech-centric city of Huntsville, Alabama, means that the clientele ranges from farmers to rocket scientists, with a caseload equally varied. This location allows us the opportunity to manage complex and challenging cases in medicine, dermatology, ophthalmology and surgery. Our only limitation is the creativity and comfort level of our staff veterinarians.
The state of Tennessee has no personal income tax and this particular region of the state has a lower cost of living than other, more densely populated, areas providing the opportunity for a comfortable lifestyle with increased discretionary income. Unlimited recreation, shopping, and entertainment are just a short drive away.
ACAH has steadily grown over the past 20+ years. We have outgrown our current location and construction is ongoing at our new facility which we expect to move into by the end of the year.
We pride ourselves on our positive and supportive clinic culture with excellent job satisfaction among our fun, friendly staff.
