About Buckwalter Veterinary Clinic

Buckwalter Veterinary Clinic was founded in 2011 by Dr. Patrick Bremer as a compassionate alternative to many of todays larger veterinary practices. Dr. Richard Bink took over the practice in March of 2012 and continues the same tradition of compassionate care.

Our focus as veterinary care professionals goes beyond vaccinations. We believe that overall wellness is more important to your pet's health and well-being. We offer advanced diagnostics such as digital x-ray and ultrasound, as well as stress preventative bloodwork to find potential health issues before they become problematic.

At Buckwalter Veterinary Clinic, we have three Veterinarians on staff, Dr. Bink, Dr. Iyer and Dr. Dana Resetarits. Each of our Veterinarians offers a different perspective and their own unique approach to veterinary care.

Our patients are varied. We treat Dogs, Cats, Birds, Reptiles, Amphibians and almost any pet that you can fit in your home!

Dr Bink genuinely cares about our pets. He spent hours removing an enlarged tumor from Cody, our six year old golden retriever, over 4 years ago. He literally saved Cody's life when other veterinarians would have given up. Since that time, he has monitored and treated Cody for a variety of health issues.
We highly recommend Dr Bink and his staff who are compassionate with both their patients and families.

Dr. Richard Bink

Richard Bink is a 1988 graduate of Ohio State University School of Veterinary Medicine. He moved to the Low Country in 1991 and purchased the Central Animal Hospital in Savannah, GA. At first, Business was slow - only two animals a day, but by 2008, the practice had grown to 35,000 animal clients. About a quarter to a third of the practice was birds and exotics. Dr. Bink has performed surgery on everything from mice to 11-foot ostriches. In 2008, Dr. Bink made an attempt at retirement in the mountains of North Carolina, only to return to his passion - Veterinary Medicine - in 2010. Dr. Bink purchased the Buckwalter Veterinary Clinic in 2012 and has tripled the number of patients in just a few months.
In his spare time Rich enjoys running, biking and kayaking. Last summer he and Dr. Dana biked in the "Tour De France" in the French Alps. Each February, Dr. BInk runs in the Mount Mitchell Challenge - a 40 mile Ultramarathon run from the town of Black Mountain, NC to the top of Mt Mitchell, the highest point in the Eastern US, and back down again. This race, intentionally run in Winter to ensure harsh conditions, is regarded as one of the most difficult trail-running races in North America. Rich also relishes his children, Richie and Audrey, who assist with the frequent patients their father brings home.
