Churchland Animal Clinic History

When Churchland was surrounded by farms, Dr. Donahue treated both small and large animals, and it was not unusual to find horses and other large “critters” being cared for in our parking area. As the Churchland farms have faded, the era has passed for large animal medicine at Churchland Animal Clinic.

In 1986, Talmadge “Midge” Yeatts Jr., DVM, joined Dr. Donahue’s staff and began practicing small animal medicine. In November 1998, Dr. Donahue and Dr. Yeatts joined forces to start the North Suffolk Animal Clinic in the Bennetts Creek area of Suffolk. In 1999, Dr. Donahue announced his retirement, and Dr. Yeatts purchased the practice. Today, Dr. Yeatts is joined by a staff of exceptional veterinarians, technicians, receptionists, and assistants. Together, they are bound by the highest degree of veterinary ethics and continually strive to provide quality veterinary care to our patients and clients.

AAHA Accredited

Churchland Animal Clinic is AAHA Accredited. The AAHA is the American Animal Hospital Association, founded in 1933 to establish common standards in veterinary medicine. To be an accredited member of the AAHA, practices must meet high standards of quality veterinary care.
