OUR HISTORY

Solomon Valley Veterinary Hospital was established on the seventh of February in 1979 by Dr. Charles Luke and his wife Jeanette Luke, LVT. Since opening, the hospital has expanded its large animal facilities, added a free-standing boarding building, and updated its appearance inside.  We take pride in providing animals with the best and most advanced care we can give them.  We can assure you that you can still count on the same compassion and enthusiasm towards veterinary medicine as when SVVH was founded 38 years ago.
