Brief History of Farmers Veterinary Hospital

Dr. Farmer started this practice in 1929, at which time he mostly provided farm stock animal care. In 1970, the practice changed its focus on companion animal medicine (dogs and cats, specifically). The practice has changed ownership only a few times, and Dr. Jason Hall saw the opportunity to continue the tradition of offering quality care to pets when Dr. Teague decided to retire in 2016 (after 42 years!)

Dr. Jason Hall

Dr. Jason Hall is a Richmond native, having grown up in Midlothian. Since graduating from veterinary school at the University of Glasgow, Scotland UK in 2007, Dr. Hall has been practicing here in Richmond. He was lucky enough to convince his lovely Irish bride to follow him back to the States, where she also is a practicing veterinarian. They are kept busy otherwise by their two young boys as well as three dogs. When he is not busy taking care of companion animals, Dr. Hall enjoys spending time with his family and going on the odd fishing trip.

Dr. Dolan was born and raised in Richmond. She completed her undergraduate studies with a degree in history from Columbia University in New York. She returned to Virginia to attend veterinary school at the Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine at Virginia Tech, where she graduated in 2015. Following vet school, she moved to Indiana and completed an internship at Purdue University’s Veterinary Teaching Hospital. Dr. Dolan’s special interests include emergency medicine and critical care, internal medicine, and ophthalmology.
