Dr. Nancy Bell recently moved to Haleyville, Alabama and built Bell Veterinary Hospital. She grew up on a dairy farm in Valley City, Ohio, and worked for several years at a local riding stable. As a small child, there was one late, stormy night that the local veterinarian had to assist the farm with a difficult calving. Dr. Bell can remember the veterinarian showing her the calf that had 2 heads and 2 tails. At that point, she looked at her father and said “I want to do that!”

After graduating from high school with honors, Dr. Bell attended the University of Findlay and graduated with a degree in Pre-Veterinary Medicine. Since graduating from Kansas State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine in 1999, Dr. Bell has been a practicing veterinarian, devoting her time and attention to pets and their owners. In 2010, with her latest educational adventure, she earned an advanced degree in Certified Veterinary Acupuncture, and in 2011 received advanced training in Chinese Food Therapy.

Dr. Bell enjoys spending her free time with her husband, Jeremiah, riding their two horses or being outdoors with her faithful dogs, Cinder and Jake. The newest addition to the group, a stray kitten (more like a Tasmanian Devil) named Toes, likes to keep things interesting.
