July 2, 2020 Update

Due to high demand, Banks Veterinary Service is deciding to focus on our existing clients and will not be accepting new companion animal clients at this moment. During this time we will still continue to accept new farm animal clients. If you are not a current client but would like to become one, we would be happy to add you to a waiting list and will contact you once we are accepting new clients again.

Thank you for your understanding,
The Team at Banks Veterinary Service

Testimonials

  • I just brought my cat here for the first time today and was so impressed with the amount of care they provided. I immediately trusted Dr. Post and loved how kind she was. Everyone was extremely friendly and you can tell they all truly care about every single animal that is brought in. I used to take my cat to a vet 5 minutes from my house, but I will gladly drive 45+ minutes to receive the level of service they provided. Their pricing is also incredibly reasonable. I cannot say enough good things about this place. I am so incredibly happy we were referred here.
