Our History

Holmes Veterinary Hospital–founded in 1986– is the oldest companion animal practice under continuous management in Laurens County, South Carolina.

Because Dr. Burns is a Laurens native, she knows her clientele and their needs and has a deep commitment to the community.

Dr. Burns is also a progressive practitioner.  She embraces new treatment modalities, diagnostic and therapeutic procedures, medication options and technology.  She is constantly taking continuing education classes to improve her ability to serve you and your pets.

In addition to having written for veterinary publications, Dr. Burns writes her own technical materials, including staff training materials, client education materials as well as veterinary drug calculation apps.  She has even adapted our x-ray department into a digital format.

In fact, Dr. Burns wrote and designed this web site and hosts her own blog, River of Muscadines: wry wit and wisdom with a Southern accent.

Holmes Veterinary Hospital also boasts what has to be the one of the highest staff retention rates among veterinary employees in the state of South Carolina, a testament to Dr. Burns’ leadership.
