Meet Our Doctors

Dr. Cinthia L. Honeycutt, DVM

She knew she wanted to stay in the beautiful mountains of Virginia and after working in several different practices, she and her husband Adam opened Hanging Rock Animal Hospital in 1996 with the mission to treat each patient as they wanted their own pets to be treated. She is committed to progressive medicine where each patient is an individual and clients are partners in their pet’s health care. She especially enjoys working with senior and geriatric patients to improve their quality of life, working with clients to improve their pet’s health through nutrition, and orthopedics. In her free time she likes to bike with her husband and two sons. She also enjoys long walks with their two dogs and reading. The three family cats enjoy keeping the dogs in line.
