There are several stables to board horses at including some with indoor arenas. Much of our staff lives in Fredericksburg, which is a small city with a charming downtown and the usual assortment of stores, plus a Wegman’s grocery store which we love. It is like a Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s, and Safeway in one giant building. It is even bigger than our Lowe’s!

About Eagle's Nest Animal Hospital
We are a different kind of animal hospital. We have really nice employees who have a lot of fun at work while at the same time providing excellent customer service and high quality medicine. We've carefully built a culture of team work and positive attitudes. We have a new suite of Heska lab equipment, a recently upgraded fully digital X-ray machine, Doppler ultrasound, electronic records etc. Currently we have more than 7 staff per doctor, which makes everyone more efficient. We are in the process of building a brand new 8,500 sq. ft. animal hospital with 10 exam rooms, two surgeries, and essentially a hospital within a hospital for cats. The cats only have to leave the cat area for surgery and X-ray. We only do small animal. There is a local emergency animal hospital which handles nights, weekends and holidays. We do work with animal control and our breeders to do the odd emergency/ c-section but it is only a handful of times a year. Our doctors bring their personal dogs to work almost every, and they are mostly free range around the hospital.
