If you live in Forest City or the surrounding area in NC, then you have picked the perfect site to find a veterinarian. Foothills Animal Clinic has three licensed veterinarians, Dr. Gretchen Kelly, Dr. Barbara Booth, and Dr. Samantha Freudenthal, to care for all of your pet's needs. All of our doctors maintain a minimum of 20 hours of continuing education each year. In doing so, they are able to keep up with the newest and most complete information about your pet's healthcare. Your pet's health and well being are very important to us, and we will take every step to give your pet the best possible care.

Foothills Animal Clinic is a full service animal clinic which takes emergency cases as well as less urgent medical, surgical, and dental issues. In addition to first rate pet care, we make our clinic a comfortable and friendly environment, so your pet can relax in the waiting room and look forward to meeting his or her own veterinarian.

We have a number of resources for you to learn about how to take better care of your pets. Browse around and look at our articles and veterinary topics. The best veterinary care for animals is ongoing nutrition and problem prevention. If you want to ask a question, call (828) 248-2168, and we will promptly get you the answers you need.
