Our Hospital

Our Story

Valley Veterinary Clinic was founded in 1978 by Dr. Debbie Cosgrove at its previous location, 3900 E. Main. Dr. Darren Woodson, a 1985 graduate of Kansas State University, bought the practice from Dr. Cosgrove in October of that year. Dr Woodson attended Margie Alvarez’s Kansas State graduation in 1986, they married the next day then went to work. In December 1989, they moved to 4390 E. Main, our current location. The boarding and grooming facility was added to the hospital in 1993. The clinic has grown from a one-doctor, two-staff practice to a five-doctor, 20-staff full-service facility.

Technology and expectations surrounding pet health have changed in the last 30 years; however, our commitment to our patients and clients to provide care in a compassionate, professional atmosphere has not changed.
