At Pine Valley Animal Hospital, there is no higher praise we can recieve than the testimonials of our clients and friends, both the four-legged and two-legged kind. 

Ken Layton has been our veterinarian for our 2 labs for 7 years. The office front desk and techs have always been pleasant and accessible when we had a problem. Dr. Layton is knowledgeable and technically proficient. He gives you the “real scoop” on the issues and your options with the cost and side effects. But the quality we find most valuable is his common sense helping us to face health issues in the best interest of our 4 legged family members. He guided us over the years as to when to push and when to back off to give our labs a quality life. We would not look elsewhere. -Dr. James Mertesdorf

Thank you Dr Layton. Oreo's mouth is healing well and her prior energy level is back. We even had a play time yesterday! I now realize that those teeth were bothering her! And she couldn't tell me! More importantly, the cat fights have stopped and peace and the normal balance of power between my two sweeties has returned. Thank you Dr Reinhart for recommending Dr Elseys cat litter. It is soooo much better and I have seen a reduction in Angel's allergy symptoms with less dust! You agree the best! ! ~  Pat Hatton, Oreo and Angel


Thank you guys so much. I always have a great experience at your clinic. The Doctors, Vet Techs., and office staff are always courteous, knowledgeable, and professional.  I was in a hurry and did not get a chance to express my gratitude.  From myself (Chad), Kelsey, and expecially Sweat Pea ; we wish all of you a very blessed and safe Christmas and New Year !!!

Thanks to the PVAH family for their never ending support and concern during Gil's illness. I love you guys and appreciate everything you've done during a difficult period. Gil was always in great hands during our visits. I can't thank you enough for your compassion, concern, and dedication.

Been with this practice for 25 years. Awesome,kind affordable, loveable. Best in wilmington -Gay Melville

Lost on of my fury babies Monday. Felicity Valentine, little old busy body of a cat. She showed up at my doorstep in the fall of 1999 already an adult. No idea where she came from but she was welcomed into the household. Her talented and compassionate vet, Dr. Layton, at Pine Valley Animal Hospital gave me a good and happy extra year with her for which I am so grateful and when it was time he helped her gently to the rainbow bridge. I will miss her very much. Thank you Dr. Layton and PVAH for all you do for me and my animal children.

The compassion shown to me from my dear friends at Pine Valley Animal Hospital, PC is what has helped me through my many loses and for that I will be forever grateful. Dr. Ken has that gift of compassion and that is why I call him and Jeannie Moreland Layton my friends.-Tilly Gurley

Everyone at Pine Valley Animal puts a smile on my face whether our visits have to do with sickness or health. They are all caring, considerate, and loving - I am happy and feel such comfort when bringing my furry family members there. - Ashley M. Bird

I have been going to PVAH literally for decades. The doctors and staff are nothing short of extraordinary. They are extremely knowledgeable and care about their patients and pet parents alike. They have gone the extra mile for me and my pets and the rescues I often bring in right at closing time. They are always kind, patient, and willing to help. Words fail me in describing how fortunate I am that they are in my life and the lives of my companion animals. -Sharon Harmon

Dr. Layton and the staff are awesome, friendly and totally knowledgeable about all things animals! -Angela McSwain

Wonderful doctors and staff. My dog loves her visits to PVAH! I am so thankful for the compassionate care that these professionals have provided for my pets throughout the years. -Cathy Campbell Ferguson

I've been taking all 3 of my animals to pine valley animal hospital for 5 years now and I can say that EVERY time I go there for a visit it was a pleasure. The receptionist are friendly, the technicians there are great,there's this one technician Sarah, she is always so nice and our dogs love her. The vet Dr Layton is very knowledgeable and always so compassionate about our animals health and well being. All in all I have nothing but good things to say about those guys. I highly recommend them. - Phil Core

We would never take our furry kids anywhere else; it's that simple. -Sue Gallagher

Affordable, friendly, reliable vet care. I'm very pleased with the service. I have a super-sensitive Great Dane (has reactions to vaccines, generally experiences side affects to medication, etc.). Pine Valley recently did a much needed eyelid surgery on him due to Entropion. I was SO NERVOUS about this. This dog is my heart and I get really nervous due to his sensitivity when he has to go under anesthesia. The surgery went well and despite my amateur after-care, the results were fantastic. His eyes look great and he's much happier and more comfortable now that his eyelids aren't scratching his poor eyes. They are always welcoming and kind when we come. My dog always gets a lot of attention. I might also add that I took my Dalmatian there for years, right until her final days. They were kind and compassionate with me when making the decision to let her pass on peacefully and without any further pain. -Rebecca Germain

I just want to say how thankful I am for you guys. I think of you every time I care for her incision. This is another life saved because of you guys. I’m also thankful for how calm and kind Dr. Layton was with me while he was trying to figure out what was wrong with her.I just can’t tell you how important you guys aren’t us and especially to me because I have learned so much. I hope you are enjoying a much deserved rest. ~
