Caring for your pets
the way we'd care for ours

We offer the highest quality care possible
with the most educated staff in the southeast.

Welcome to the Veterinary Regional Referral Hospital  in Decatur Alabama.

About Us

Dr. Michael Newman and Dr. Geoff Harriman, along with a staff of caring professionals, work closely with your general practice veterinarian to insure that your pet’s surgical and diagnostic needs are met.

General Surgery

Our Hospital is equipped to perform most major soft tissue surgeries, particularly of the abdomen and chest. Surgeries involving neoplasia(cancer) are frequently performed. Follow-up chemotherapy is also available in appropriate cases.

Critical Care

Many times a critically ill patient needs continuing care. The Veterinarians who provide our emergency services also provide critical care after-hours.

Emergency Services

We have veterinarians on staff who handle after-hours emergencies. Our emergency care service, that is care for a situation needing immediate attention, does not require a referral and is available only after-hours.

Recent News

Dear Colleagues and Tennessee Valley Community,

One of the goals of all those who have experienced a surgical residency is to pass the board examination to achieve the title of Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Surgeons. This task is difficult but I am happy to report that Geoffrey Harriman has achieved this goal. It represents the culmination of an education/training program that started with completion of his veterinary degree, through two years of internship, and a three year surgical residency. Congratulations to Dr. Harriman, he is certainly deserving and we look forward to many years of surgical service to your clients and the general public from this facility.
