About Lunsford Veterinary Care Center
Lunsford Veterinary Services, Inc. was established in 1997 as a strictly ambulatory practice. Within a few years, a 500 square foot space was constructed within the shop at the owner's home to allow for small animal surgeries. In October 2002, Lunsford Veterinary Services, Inc. expanded and moved into a new 5500 square foot small animal facility while continuing to provide primarily ambulatory large animal services and began doing business as Lunsford Veterinary Care Center. A new 3600 square foot large animal indoor haul in facility was added in January 2020.
The clinic slogan: A Family Practice, was selected because the practice is owned by two veterinarians, husband and wife, but also because it was their desire to be sure the veterinary team and their clients were treated like family. Furthermore, we wanted to recognized that people's pets were a part of their families and additionally wanted to honor the idea of the family farm.
The practice has grown from a single veterinarian as the sole employee to a thriving mixed animal practice with 3 veterinarians and 11-12 support staff serving the pets, livestock and families of Northwest Arkansas.
