Wayne Heights Animal Hospital was started in July of 1996 by Dr. Dwight Ridenour. The hospital vision was to provide quality veterinary services in an environment that also offers care and compassion to its patients and clients. It is that foundation that brought the facility to where it is today. The hospital was purchased in July of 2007 by doctors, John and Charlene Barnes. They continue to follow the hospital vision while bringing very exciting changes. These include, a state of the art digital dental imaging system used to aide in diagnosing dental disease and veterinary acupuncture and laser therapy to help patients gain mobility and improve their overall health. We also offer numerous other services listed under the canine and feline services portion of our website. To carry on our level of service and keep aware of the ever changing developments in veterinary medicine, the doctors and support staff participate in continuing education and training on a regular basis.
