|Laura J. Fulks, DVM
Dr. Fulks grew up in Huntington, attending Cabell County schools
and graduating from Huntington East High School. After receiving her
BS degree from Marshall University, she studied Veterinary Medicine
at The Ohio State University, where she was awarded her Doctor of
Veterinary Medicine degree.
Married with three active kids, Dr. Fulks amazingly balances a busy
family life with her intense focus on the care of your most-loving
companions. For "fun", she enjoys spending time with her kids,
reading, walking her dogs, and spending time outdoors.
Dr. Fulks has been practicing veterinary medicine and veterinary
surgery in Huntington since 1997. A loving pet owner herself, she
knows that your animals are more than just "pets"---they're family!!!
And she knows that the human-animal bond is not only special, but
sacred. With that as her focus, she demonstrates everyday what it
means to provide expert care for the life you share.
Did you know . . . that Dr. Fulks married her high school sweetheart?
|Bert Fulks, Office Manager
As you've probably guessed, Bert belongs to Dr. Fulks (as he has
since high school!).
Bert is a Huntington native and graduate of Huntington East High
School and Marshall University. In his "spare time" you may find him
coaching baseball, teaching Sunday School or playing music at
FUMC, or simply sharing his love of sports, music and movies with
Bert's goal is to make you a RAVING FAN of South Huntington Animal
Hospital. If there's EVER any reason you're not able to refer us to your
family and friends, let Bert know and he'll do whatever it takes to
make it right!
Did you know . . . that Bert's first career was teaching World History,
Sociology, and Psychology at Dublin Coffman High School in Dublin,
|Leslie Webb, Client Care Coordinator
With SEVERAL years of experience in veterinary medicine, Leslie's
able to conquer just about any task at South Huntington Animal
Hospital. And since she's been with us since day one, Leslie is an
integral part who we are and what we do.
With a crazy household that includes two kids, an outlawed dog, a
dumpster cat, a horse that thinks he's a lap-dog, and whatever other
critter-of-the-month that finds its way into her home, we think Leslie
comes to work for a chance to maintain her sanity.
Right, Leslie? Right . . . . ?
|Courtney Adkins, Client Care / Veterinary Assistant
Courtney is Wayne County gal with a little bit of everything in her
background---from music to hardware and tools to banking . . . all the
way to her current studies: She's now working through her Veterinary
Technician program to become a licensed vet tech.
After an MIA-stint for maternity leave, she keeps reminding us that
she's back. Really. She's back.
A mom of two and the wife of a Wayne County football coach, she
doesn't get rattled too easily. Unless it's spiders. But we'll keep
trying the occasional shock-therapy to help with that.
|Larry Byrd, Client Care / Veterinary Assistant
Larry has been working in the veterinary field for several years; so,
naturally, he's got several animals in his family . . . and he fits right in
. . . with them . . . and us . . . and . . . well, you know . . . .
With his experience, Larry can handle just about anything we throw at
him. And though he takes his job very seriously, Larry always finds a
way to make us laugh.
Whether he's assisting the doctor, working the front desk, or
monitoring patients in our treatment center, you can count on Larry to
provide you and your loved ones with the best possible care.
|Alisha Jackson, Licensed RVT
Alisha came highly-recommended to us with a Veterinary Technician
degree from The Bradford School in Columbus, Ohio. Having
completed this AVMA-accredited program, Alisha has also passed
the national RVT exam and is fully licensed as a Registered
Though Bert gives her a hard time about her many suggestions and
ideas, Alisha is always considering ways to do something different
and better . . . which means she's always thinking about how to take
better care of you and your loved ones!
|Olive Oil, Chief Gravity Engineer
When she first came to us, she was skinny and scraggly and plain ol'
UGLY. So we named her after Popeye's girlfriend.
Now she's all grown up . . . and more like Bluto than Olive Oil.
Not-so-lovingly referred to as "Princess", Olive does whatever she
wants, whenever she wants. She may greet you at the counter, or
she may hang out in the hallway to bless your pets with her
prom-queen presence, or she might not bother to even wake up.
On a good day, she'll let you pet her. But don't get too enthusiastic,
because once she's had enough . . . she's had enough.
