Opening in 1956, the owners, Drs Allen Wright and Larry Frost, had the second Hampton City veterinary practice for small animals. Dr. Frost also worked a large animal practice out of the hospital while Dr. Wright attended to the small animals. Their practice grew and the years passed. In June, 1980, Drs. Michael and Beverly Silkey purchased the practice from the retiring doctors. Continuing the medical and surgical care of our small patients, the number of doctors has grown to 4 with the aid of 3 technicians and a staff of over 30 assitants.
