Our History at Northway Animal Hospital

Northway Animal Hospital was opened in 1967 by Dr. Charles Horton on Cook Avenue across from “The Mall”. After working for Dr. Horton in high school, graduating veterinary school and practicing in Huntsville for 6 years, Dr. Rip Patton took over Northway in 1994 and since then has enjoyed caring for family pets in the area. Since 1989 Northway has been accredited by the American Animal Hospital Association, an honor held by only 15% of veterinary hospitals in the country.
