A native of Phenix City, Alabama, Dr. Jay Price says he first found his love of animal care while spending summers on his grandparents’ farm helping to tend and care for its many animals. Dr. Price received his BS in Zoology at Auburn University and Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine and served as President of Alpha Psi veterinary medical fraternity.
Dr. Price is a veterinarian and the Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Southern Veterinary Partners in Birmingham. Prior to forming Southern Veterinary Partners, Dr. Price owned Oak View Animal Hospital and Patton Chapel Animal Clinic - the original animal hospitals within Southern Veterinary Partners.
His many duties at Southern Veterinary Partners keep him away from seeing patients at the veterinary hospitals, but his areas of particular professional interest include oncology, internal medicine, surgery and dermatology.
Away from work, Jay enjoys spending time with his wife, two young boys and fishing. He has provided his veterinary services to numerous animal rescue and adoption organizations in Birmingham and volunteered as a trail guide on the Appalachian Trail with the Blind Veterans Association.
He was named "Young Alumni of the Year" from Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine, a "Top Tiger" from Auburn University, one of the "Top 40 Under 40" and "Executive of Influence" by the Birmingham Business Journal as well as a finalist for "Entrepreneur of the Year" from Ernst & Young.
