Dr. Griffin purchased the clinic from Dr. Eugene Morton in 1988. From its inception, Albemarle Animal Clinic has worked diligently to be a leader in veterinary medicine in the region. Albemarle Animal Clinic became the first computerized clinic in the county and has continuously worked to remain on top of the latest technology within the veterinary field. This allows us to better reach, serve, and connect with our ever-growing client base.
