Our Practice

Blue Ridge Animal Hospital is a full-service companion animal clinic serving the health care needs of the dogs and cats of Greer, SC and surrounding communities. Our goal is to not only provide unparalleled patient care and exceptional client service but to do so in a way that demonstrates the genuine concern we have for the people and pets in our community. At BRAH, we treat our clients and patients like they were members of our own family.

Our comprehensive services and state of the art facilities are designed to assist in routine preventative care for young, healthy pets; aid in the early detection and treatment of disease as your pet ages; and offer complete medical, diagnostic and surgical care as necessary during your four-legged friend’s lifetime. In other words, we’re here to provide for all of your pet’s needs, from birth through the senior years. We consider it a true honor to walk beside you in the amazing journey of pet ownership.

In addition to the extensive list of traditional veterinary care services we offer, our hospital also offers a number of advanced services that many other practices don’t. For example, we routinely perform emergency and soft tissue surgeries, blood and plasma transfusions, stem cell therapy, and therapeutic laser therapy. Our general pet care services include full-service boarding and bathing services.

Our four veterinarians, Dr. Morel, Dr. Spring, Dr. Garrelts and Dr. Koch have over 50 years of experience and along with them, all of us at Blue Ridge strive to offer quality care in a Christian atmosphere. We try to demonstrate the love we have for our clients and patients in everything we do, from our gentle handling techniques to calm a nervous or aggressive pet to helping to transport a pet to and from the clinic whose owner is having difficulty doing so on their own.

The entire team at BRAH believes that it’s the little touches that truly make a difference, which is why you’ll always see us going the extra mile. Whether it’s sending home pictures to assure clients that their hospitalized furbaby is doing well, taking the time to follow up after a surgery or illness, making personalized Christmas ornaments or just adding the names of our clients and their families to our clinic prayer list. These are the things that keep people coming back to see us, year after year, with generations of pets.

Community service and charitable giving are also an important part of the lives of each BRAH team member. Over the years, we’ve participated in annual mission trips overseas, with hopes of planning to to do more in the future. Our clients have joined us in supporting these projects by donating school supplies and clothes. We have been supporting Piedmont Women’s Center, a Christian-based pregnancy crisis center, since its beginning in 1991. We also support our local Greer Community Ministries with donations and by helping with their annual Big Thursday auction.

For all of us at Blue Ridge Animal Hospital, it’s not about the money or the recognition. It’s about having the chance to make a difference in the lives of pets and seeing the smiles on their owners’ faces. It’s about the chance to make the best out of a bad situation. A chance to heal. A chance to save a life. Nothing brings us more joy than getting those tails wagging and throats purring. It’s what gets us out of bed every morning!

To put it in the simplest of terms, at BRAH, we care. A LOT. We educate. We communicate. We answer questions. We follow up. We are honored to partner with you and look forward to serving you and your four-legged friend for many years to come. Won’t you consider giving us a try? We’re confident that once you experience what a difference our compassionate, personal care can make, you’ll never want to go anywhere else!

New clients are always welcome, so call or stop by today! We can’t wait to meet you!
