puppy1.pngPlease call 205-428-5256 to schedule an appointment and we will do our best to find a time that is convenient for you.

Please arrive a few minutes before your scheduled appointment to complete necessary admission forms.

Your first visit will involve a comprehensive opthalmic exam and usually takes between 30-45 minutes.

Dr. Nelms and her nursing team will speak with you concerning your pet's condition to help determine the most complete medical history as possible


Bring in any medical history you have of your pet when you come to our vet clinic.  It's best to keep a journal of your pet's health throughout his or her life, including behavioral shifts.  If you have something like this, share it with our team.  If not, let us know everything that you think will be important.  Dr. Nelms can still work with whatever information you have.

Testimonials

Dr. Nelms and her staff are great folks to trust your pets precious eyesight to! They did a great job with our Lab's eye sight. 6 months ago he was almost totally blind. He's done great since the surgery, and is now very active and happy. I highly recommend Dr. Nelms.
