Treating Pet Families with Compassion & Integrity

Our philosophy is simple: we want to help pets and their owners share a happy life together. Since 1992, Dr. Skipworth and his receptionist, Rhonda, have been working together to serve local pet families, nurturing bonds between people and their companion animals and building trusting, long-term relationships within the community. In 2008, Skipworth Veterinary Clinic was established here in Richmond, a place that we are proud to call our home.

Our love of pets shows in everything we do—from taking extra time during appointments, to keeping our doors open after-hours to accommodate emergencies, to working within our clients’ budgets. As a family-oriented practice, we understand the importance of your four-legged family members, and pledge to give them only the best possible care we can offer.

What We Offer

We’re a full-service animal hospital, which means that we offer everything from surgery, to dental care, to microchipping. We care about your pet’s well-being as much as you do, and hope to be their primary veterinarian for life. Through every stage of their development, we promise we’ll be there to provide them with exceptional care whenever they need it.

As a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), Dr. Skipworth is committed to continuously setting the standard for quality pet medicine and client education, and expanding his team’s knowledge base. As beloved family members, our pets deserve nothing less than the best in every aspect.
