Central Valley Animal Hospital

Welcome to Central Valley Animal Hospital

Our Mission Statement

Welcome to Central Valley Animal Hospital (CVAH)! Here at “Central Valley,” we recognize that pets are your passion and keeping them healthy is our number one priority. In 1995, Dr. Mark S. Jandrlich built the foundation of a veterinary practice (CVAH) that continues to strive toward excellence by providing higher standards of veterinary care. We are committed to the One-Health Initiative… that is, working with you to achieve the healthiest lifestyle possible for your animal companion. Bringing your pets to annual wellness examinations, following a preventive healthcare protocol and, if needed, choosing appropriate diagnostic and treatment options provided by your veterinarian are some of the examples of the veterinary-client-patient relationship that we work hard for and that we look forward to establishing with you. Simply stated, “We are Central Valley Animal Hospital and we do what is best for your pets.”

Central Valley Animal Hospital has been serving the veterinarian needs of Etowah County since 1973. Seventeen years ago, Dr. Mark Jandrlich, better known as Dr. "J", purchased the clinic and has made Central Valley what it is today. Dr. Lindy Alverson joined Dr. "J" and a loving, professional support staff is here to serve your pet's every need.
