About Us

Service You Can Trust

McAbee Veterinary Hospital was established in 1962 by Dr. Harry S. McAbee. Following his service in the U.S. Marine Corps during World War II, Dr. Harry S. McAbee graduated from Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine in 1951.  Dr. Scott W. McAbee, a 1990 graduate of the same school, took over the practice in 1991. 

Our 35 employees, including 7 doctors with combined professional experience of over 80 years, are committed to compassionately providing pets with the most up-to-date wellness care, and diagnostic and treatment plans. 

Our staff is sensitive to the needs of our clients and their pets.  We fully understand that the needs of each client may be different, and that only through effective communication can reasonable options be presented.
