Samford Valley Veterinary Hospital was started by Brian and Christeen Sheahan when they moved to Samford in 1974.  Back then Samford Valley was still very rural, comprising mostly dairy farms that had been operating in this area for generations. After nearly 20 years of very hard work, Brian and Christeen had grown the Practice from a one man, one phone business into a multi-person small and large animal Practice.  Leigh Hanlon in 1990 and Judy Law in 1992 joined Brian and, over the ensuing 25 years, together developed the business into a modern, continually evolving, multi-person Practice providing a broad range of services to the pets, horses and farm animals within this beautiful Valley.  Leigh and Judy became part owners of the Practice in 2011 and purchased the Practice completely on Brian’s retirement in 2015.  Together they continue Brian’s legacy – growing and developing our services; remaining committed to the Samford Valley community; and ensuring that the staff of the Veterinary Hospital provide total care to the family pets, horses and farm animals of Samford Valley and beyond.
