I’m a dog mom to the extreme and I’ll never take my fur babies anywhere else! Wendy was having issues with wheezing and coughing. I went to three different vets before trying out RVAH. Each vet just pushed it off as kennel cough. I had a gut feeling it was something more. River Valley was the first to actually listen to all my concerns and do what was necessary to get to the bottom of it. After a few tests Wendy is on the medication she needs and she feels amazing! They also accept care card (credit card for pet care) so this really helps me when it’s comes time to pay! Love love love them!!

Fantastic staff, and reasonably priced. My senior dog forgot he was a senior and ended up with a broken hind leg. They explained everything, including the financial obligations, and got him fixed up. They called the following day to check on him. When I took him back, it was discovered that it wasn’t quite healed, so they reset it and refilled his meds. He is already walking even better with the reset splint, and they called to follow up again. This will definitely be my vet from now on!

Originally, I was really stressed going here because with past experience the “hospital” word usually means I’m going to drop some $$$$. My min/pin beagle mix cut her leg open so I brought her here. This staff is so caring and loving with your animal! They are reasonably priced and military friendly! Dr. South got another surprise visit from me this morning because my dog broke a couple of stitches. We were in and out in no time. Dr. South did an AMAZING job! Thank you River Valley Animal Hospital for taking care of my pup.

Everyone that works at River Valley Vet is AMAZING. The compassion they all showed for Little Alice was very heartfelt. Dr. Rachel saved our kitten, when there wasn’t a lot of positive progress from her multiple illnesses. They have made a lifetime friend of the Keiser-Alley household, and Alice says thank you!

The entire staff was just so helpful and caring for not only Xylo, but me. They did a fantastic job at explaining what needed to be done and how everything looked when we were done. Xylo was a trooper the entire time but I’m pretty sure he was just feeling on the good vibes from the staff.) Thank you all so much!!

I’m absolutely in love with this clinic. From the moment you walk in they make you feel like family. They took wonderful care of my fur baby and gave great instructions on follow up care. They also told me I could call if I had any trouble or concerns. I couldn’t ask for a better staff and clinic. Thank you!!

I absolutely LOVE this Veterinary Clinic. They are courteous, kind, and top notch in their care of animals. The facilities are impeccable. The prices are extremely reasonable. I took my horse in for a dental check and he had to be sedated. When it was time for him to sober up, I went to pay the bill. By the time I was done, the vet tech had already loaded him into my trailer for me. I can’t give enough praise to this superb team of veterinarians, techs and office staff. I will absolutely be coming back for future visits with all my animals. If you’re smart, you will too!

Seriously do not have enough nice things to say about this place. Took Gibsy today. Everyone that knows her knows about her anxiety. They went above and beyond here to keep her calm. They talked me through all options and gave me several choices of what treatments we needed for her. I’ve been searching and searching for a vet that she would like and I finally found it. Will not be going anywhere else.

I want to say thanks to the River Valley crew. Jessi, Brittany and Dr. Tipton all took great care of my fussy doggo. Koko got signed up as a VIP and I highly recommend the membership, the crew and facility.

Dr. Rachel South saved our kitten from certain death following complications from a neuter surgery at another facility. Doctor’s South (both) are highly knowledgeable, very personable, compassionate and caring. They care for your pet as if it were their own. They have an exceptional, friendly staff. Their prices are more than reasonable. I have used several Vets in Ft. Smith and surrounding areas and they are hands down the BEST animal hospital open in Ft. Smith.

I have three dogs with very unique quirks, and it’s hard to find anywhere all 3 are calm and not terrified. The staff was amazing with them! And, again, considering I have 3 big dogs, the prices are super affordable.

The staff and care at RVAH is amazing! Very genuine, sweet TRUE animal lovers. They treat your animals as if they were their own. They have been more than willing to work with me and my budget when I’ve had urgent situations with one of my cats. I can not say enough good things. I would highly recommend!

What a fantastic and state of the art facility! Finally a clinic that truly cares about your pets, large and small. Very patient, knowledgeable staff willing to take extra time if your pet is feeling nervous or anxious too. I can see why they won best veterinary facility.

Dr. South and her staff are amazing! They are very good about keeping you updated and explaining your pets situation and options. I feel that everyone in the facility cares about your case, and even remembers you and your pet upon your return. I have been very impressed by the staff with each visit, and I would 100% recommend this clinic.
