In 1995, Sheri Fastenrath, DVM identified the need for an emergent care facility for owners and their pets in the Huntsville area. Unfortunately, there were not many overnight emergency options for medical treatment in the surrounding area.
In response to that need, Dr. Fastenrath and other local veterinarians formed a committee to lay the plans for what would become the Animal Emergency Clinic of N AL. The response from the community was so overwhelming that many of the area veterinarians also came aboard and agreed that there was a need in the community. The Animal Emergency Clinic of N AL was founded by Dr. Sheri Fastnrath, Dr. Charles Horton, and Dr. Mark Russell, Dr. Mike Wilson, Dr. Wilson McManus II, Dr. Charles Young, Dr. Sammy Linderman and the late Dr. Lewis McCurdy.
The Animal Emergency Clinic of N AL is a full service emergent care facility that is an extension of the local veterinary hospitals. We provide overnight hospitalization for critical patients and access to emergency care when your regular veterinarians are closed.
