About Us


The Athens Veterinary Clinic has continued to provide care to both large and small animals for quite some time. Dr. James Bratton and his brother-in-law, Dr. Marvin Phillips, started the “Athens Veterinary Hospital” back in 1952. Dr. Erik Aanestad purchased the practice in 1993 and it has continued to operate as the Athens Veterinary Clinic. Dr. Aanestad passed away in 2015, but his son, Dr. Marshall Aanestad, has since graduated from The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine and has revived our multi-generation practice
