Long Veterinary Clinic's, an Animal Hospital in Kearney, Missouri, theme since 2004 has been change. We have brought to life an old facility by adding new technology, new equipment, new services and new ideas. For those of you passing by the clinic; facility upgrades and changes have been obvious. However, the biggest changes extend beyond a coat of fresh paint and some new equipment.

Long Veterinary Clinic once served the local community's needs; whether it was small animal, equine or bovine medical, surgical and/or emergency services. With our recent changes and a willing staff, Long Veterinary Clinic is once again poised to perform these services.

Long Veterinary Clinic offers comprehensive medical and surgical services for your companion animals, equine athletes and livestock. These services range from routine preventative health programs to more complicated diagnostic and surgical procedures.

Dr. Leighr and his staff are dedicated to the Kearney community. Dr. Leighr co-sponsors an Adopt A Pet program with Orscheln's Farm and Home. Since 2004, thousands of pets have found their "forever homes". In addition, Dr. Leighr teaches 4H Vet Science and mentors high school and college students. Several of his students have attended the Maple Woods Community College's Veterinary Technician Program, University of Missouri College of Veterinary Medicine and Kansas State Veterinary College.

Dr. Amanda Bowers joined our staff in May of 2013, she is a wonderful addition working with both small companion animals as well as large animals.
