Dr. Andrew Verdin
Veterinarian, Practice Owner
Andrew’s early exposure to veterinary medicine includes a story straight from the pages of James Herriot’s “All Creatures Great and Small.” Andrew is the son of Dr. Verdin, founder of Verdin Veterinary Services. One warm summer evening, when Andrew was just a small boy, he accompanied his father to a farm call around dusk. Andrew stood by and watched his father help a mama cow birth her little calf. While Andrew had been on farm calls before, this particular evening holds a special memory for him. When he enjoys a quiet evening right around dusk, he recalls that memory that helped to shape his career as a veterinarian!
Dr. Daniel Moore
Veterinarian, Practice Owner
Daniel’s first veterinary medicine job showed him that veterinarians work on many species of animals. Working at a southeast Georgia animal clinic, Daniel often saw dogs, cats, horses, and cows on the patient appointment schedule. In addition, the veterinarians saw bears, deer, ostriches, and bobcats on occasion. While Daniel was originally hired as a kennel employee, he eventually picked up veterinary assistant, receptionist, and grooming skills as well. Looking back, Daniel realized that his diverse introduction to veterinary medicine helped to shape the career that he loves today!
Dr. D.B. Verdin
Former Practice Owner
Dr. Verdin has been able to achieve that rare combination of deep, personal passion and career success. In 1966, he started Verdin Veterinary Services from a desire to dedicate his life to agriculture, a vocation near to his heart since his family had been farmers for generations. Dr. Verdin was also influenced by his strong Christian faith, and desired to use his God-given gifts to help his animal patients and their loving owners. He truly feels that his veterinary work is a form of worship. After many years, Dr. Verdin’s successful practice has allowed him the freedom to return to the land he loves!
Dr. Sara Cato
Although she is the daughter of two veterinarians and had grown up exposed to all facets of the veterinary medical profession, Sara originally wanted to blaze her own trail and study other fields during college. That all changed when she started working with her mother during breaks from school—it didn’t take long for Sara to realize just how much she enjoyed the challenging yet rewarding world of animal care! Sara is proud to now serve the pets and animal owners of the community as an Associate Veterinarian with Verdin Veterinary Services.
Dr. Brent Goodson
Dr. Brent Goodson has owned pets ever since he was a young boy growing up in southwestern Georgia.

Dr. Goodson is proud to use his skillset to better the lives of Simpsonville’s pets and animal owners here at Verdin Veterinary Services.
