Dr. Beth Hamblin brings almost 7 years of experience to Affordable Vet Center.Her commitment and compassion to helping and healing animals plus her passion to educate our clients about preventative medicine to keep pets healthy is a true gift and blessing. Her love of animals started at a very young age taking care of her pet birds, rabbits, and fish and led her to working as a veterinary technician in her hometown for several years. She knew early on that she would become a veterinarian and that dream came true when she graduated in 2013 as a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine. Dr. Hamblin is a native of Dallas, Texas and became an associate veterinarian at a local clinic for several years and was instrumental in the success of the clinic.
Dr. Hamblin transferred to Georgia three years ago with her husband, her 2 dogs, Rambo and Izzy and her cat, Chloe.
