About Appalachian-New River Veterinary Associates

About Appalachian-New River Veterinary Associates in Boone

Appalachian-New River Veterinary Associates (ANRVA) was established by Dr. David Thompson and Dr. Warren Moretz in 1985 after the merging of New River Animal Hospital and Appalachian Veterinary Hospital. In April of 2007, the practice was sold to National Veterinary Associates, (a private owner) of veterinary practices throughout North America. National Veterinary Associates owns more than 140 practices in over 33 states. The goal of NVA is to support local medical standards established by individual practices.

NVA makes available tools and resources for each hospital while avoiding a standardized overall plan that might not be suited for each hospitals community. Tools and resources include a national medical database, additional training and education for each hospitals staff, and nationally published and researched practice methods. Each managing veterinarian is given the freedom to choose at what level they would like their individual hospital to practice and NVA gives them the support to reach their goal.

You should not have to compromise when choosing treatment for your loved ones, including pets. We strive to provide you with the best quality care for your pet at an affordable cost because we don’t believe it should have to be one or the other.
