Ciara was born in Warsaw, NY, but quickly fell in love with Georgia when her parents purchased a home in Blairsville in 1995. In 2005 she permanently put down roots in Blairsville, and she doesn’t ever plan to leave.  The youngest of four children with a large age gap, Ciara learned to find the most joy and companionship in animals.

 

With four years experience as a Veterinary Assistant, Ciara is our resident cat whisperer and groomer as well.  While cats tend to be first to steal her heart, she's perfectly content to cuddle with the pooches as well. She has several cats that call her Mom, and she is the proud parent of the now famous kittens, Little Girl Nottely and Mulligan.  She also brings our resident mascot, Noah home at night so he maintains his fabulous social life.

Great place, kind friendly staff and Dr. Stevenson is so kind and gentle with our pets

Lisa P.

My daughter is interested in being a vet and Dr Stevenson and staff took the time to make sure she was a part of every aspect of the visit even though our visit ran past their closing time. Their compassion for not only animals but also people is obvious, and we intend to keep going there

Shaye C.

Dr. Stevenson is very competent and genuinely invests her time in each patient making them feel more comfortable. I would highly recommend her and her office to anyone seeking veterinary needs.
