Welcometo our Veterinary Clinic
ABOUT USWho We Are
Ripley Paws was established in 2000, when Dr. Barickman decided to come back home to Ripley. We have proudly served the greater Ripley, WV area since then and will continue to do so for as long as we're here.
Our new facility has the most up-to-date equipment, a helpful and friendly staff, and experienced veterinarians. We love meeting new people and their pets, as well as, spending quality time with our old friends and patients.
We treat your pet as we would our own.
We understand the special role your pet plays in your family.
We are dedicated to becoming your partner in your pet’s health care and needs.
We strive to give our patients the highest quality medical care with compassion.
We want to make sure that you have a comprehensive understanding of your pet's health and medical needs.

The amazing people at Ripley Paws have helped us so much through the years. They are kind and knowledgeable. Definitely, the best veternarian in the area.
Top notch vet care plus the added advantage of boarding! Nice new facility. We boarded our 10 year old puggle with them while we went on vacation, since he goes here for his veterinary needs. Very friendly and caring staff. I felt like he was under excellent care while we were away. Would recommend boarding your animals here.
You guys always take the time to explain everything to us and answer any questions we have. We see how much you really care. Thank you so much for everything!
Always friendly. Take good care of our babies. The staff is Awesome
I am so grateful for how sincere and compassionate the staff at Ripley Paws was when I lost my baby. There are no words for how much I appreciate them.
Everyone was very friendly and professional. My dog's always receive excellent care here.
Best vet EVER! I will never go to another vet if I have a choice. Thanks!
So thankful for this group!!! On 2 different occasions I have had to be seen without much notice and they were very busy.. but they made sure we were seen!! They are AWESOME!!! Truely care for your baby 🐾💗
