About Us

Established in 1986, Balsam Animal Hospital has been serving the Waynesville area for 38 years. Being a small, private practice allows our clients to be at ease knowing they will see the same veterinarian and be able to build a close, one-on-one relationship in which their veterinarian gets to know their pet. With skill and a wealth of knowledge, Dr. Kern knows how to treat pets both big and small so that they leave with tails wagging and happy faces! From our front desk reception to our technicians and assistants, we all strive to provide compassionate, accessible, affordable, and professional care for all who trust us with their furry friends.
