Meet the friendly staff at Barrow Veterinary Hospital!

James M. Powers

I have worked in Winder as a veterinarian for over 30 years. I am a native of Walton County and grew up on a large farm. I attended Auburn University and graduated in 1967 with an animal science degree. I then worked the family farm for 7 years until I decided to go back to school. I graduated from the University of Georgia Veterinary School in 1979 and opened the practice in Winder in July of 1979. For many years I attended large and small animals, but now I am exclusively small animals.

I have always had pets of all kinds but I suppose I tend to favor Labrador Retrievers. Having a big dog as a companion and taking him every where I go is like always having your best friend with you. Knowing how it feels to be attached to a pet I understand that treating your pet is like treating a family member and I want to treat everyone the way I would want me and my pet to be treated.
