Berry Animal Hospital

"Our goal is to make your pet happy and healthy!"




Wellness Exams and Annual Visits with Vaccines are offered during regular business hours with no appointment necessary! We also recommend having your pet Heartworm tested and screened for intestinal parasites at this time. 

We offer boarding for all of our dog and cat patients. Please call to make a reservation. Rabies and Distemper Parvo vaccines are required for boarding. 

Does your pet have bad breath? 
We provide routine dental cleanings for all of our patients. Please bring your pet in for an exam to see if your pet would benefit from a dental cleaning. 

Surgeries are scheduled during regular business hours.
 Please call ahead to schedule an appointment. Rabies and a Distemper Parvo vaccine are required before procedure. 

Please call with any questions or concerns before bringing in any large animal patients. This will ensure that we are staffed to provide adequate treatment.

We carry Home Again Microchips in hospital. An appointment is not needed for your pet to be microchipped. 

We do our best to treat any and all emergency cases that come in during business hours. However, we are not staffed or equipped to provide treatment for most emergencies that occur. Please call or take your pet to the nearest emergency hospital if possible.

Heritage Veterinary Practice


Serving the community's veterinary needs for over 50 years. 

Berry Animal Hospital was established in 1952 by Dr. T.C. Berry who was a graduate of Auburn University's College of Veterinary Medicine. His son, Dr. William T. Berry continued the practice in 1975 after graduating also from Auburn University's College of Veterinary Medicine and the retirement of his father. The practice originated in downtown Ardmore until it was moved to its present location in 1978.  


The original practice began in a rural community predominantly treating large animals. Due to continuing growth and changes within the community, Berry Animal Hospital now serves more companion animals with limited large animal treatment. The modern day practice offers many diagnostic tools to give your pets the best possible care.
