About Us

Blairstown Veterinary Care

The Blairstown Animal Hospital has a history of excellence in the community dating back to 1948. Dr. Kenneth Leal is the current owner and director of this vibrant, caring, and state-of-the-art facility. A longtime resident of Blairstown, Dr. Leal started at the hospital as a kennel worker in the early 1970’s. He returned to his hometown in 1984 after graduating from the University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine, first becoming partner, and then sole owner of the hospital. Dr. Leal, the doctors, and staff of the Blairstown Animal Hospital continue to serve and treat the small animals and exotic species that the community loves as their pets.

Many changes have taken place over the years, the latest being our new and updated facilities. While originally serving the needs of a farming community over 50 years ago, today our completely renovated facility functions as a state of the art hospital with the ability to treat numerous ailments and diseases.  Our six veterinarians are here to provide full medical and surgical services in modern facilities. The vast knowledge of our experienced and talented team of doctors, combined with the latest technological advancements and treatments, makes the Blairstown Animal Hospital the best choice for the pets in your family!
