At Clay-Chalkville Animal Clinic, we know how important your pets are to you. It's no exaggeration to say that pets are family. That's why our team is committed to providing the best animal care you'll find in Pinson, Clay, Trussville, and surrounding areas. Licensed veterinarian Dr. Charles Hart has held a doctorate of veterinary medicine for more than 30 years and has extensive experience treating many different kinds of pets. You can be sure that your furry or feathered friend is in good hands when you choose our clinic.

Top-Notch Preventative and Advanced Care

Our animal hospital offers both preventative care and more advanced services for pets. For pets currently in good health, regular checkups are essential for preventing illness and catching health problems before they become difficult to treat. Our clinic can vaccinate your dog or cat, run bloodwork tests to make sure your pet is healthy, and perform physical examinations on an annual or bi-annual basis.

We also provide advanced veterinary care for pets with more complex health needs. A few of these services include:

  • Spaying or neutering pets of all types
  • Declawing cats
  • Providing dental care
  • Performing soft-tissue surgery such as tumor removal
  • Performing orthopedic surgery on injured pets

Other Services Our Animal Hospital Offers

In addition to regular veterinary services, we offer boarding services for dogs and cats of all sizes. If you're going on a trip soon, our team can take good care of your pet until you return. We also offer grooming services by appointment.

Another service our clinic offers is microchip identification. Would you be able to find your pet if he got lost? This scenario might not be likely, but it does happen. Getting your pet microchipped can give you some extra peace of mind about your furry family member's safety. 

An Experienced Veterinarian You Can Trust

Dr. Charles Hart was born in Birmingham and has over 45 years of experience working with horses in Clay. Before starting his own practice, Dr. Hart honed his skills by working as an associate veterinarian in Atlanta. In addition to treating small pets, he has also served as a veterinarian for the Birmingham Zoo and is chairman of the local animal rescue unit. Dr. Hart is passionate about caring for animals, and his veterinary team shares the same ethos.

They really talked to me about what and when I should start her on her shots and when to get her spayed! These are such wonderful people and i can’t wait for them to walk me and Luna through what she needs next visited!"
