Welcome

Our locally owned veterinary clinic prides itself on delivering high quality service while providing compassionate care for all animals we work with. You and your pet will receive the attention you deserve within a friendly family oriented atmosphere.  We want you and your pets to feel like part of our family while receiving the best veterinary care.  Our hospital offers in-house bloodwork, anesthetic monitoring equipment, digital x-ray and endoscopy. 

We are happy to answer any questions you may have about our veterinarian services or your animal's health care needs.  We love animals as much as you do and we look forward to working with you and your pets. We know a healthy pet is a happy pet! 


The Carville Veterinary Clinic was founded by Dr. Charles Carville in 1990.  Dr. Carville received his Bachelor of Science from the United States Military Academy (West Point) in 1973 and served in the U.S. Army as an infantry officer and Airborne Ranger for 7 years.  He returned to his hometown of Plaquemine to pursue his second career in veterinary medicine, graduating from the LSU School of Veterinary Medicine in 1973 and opening his practice in 1990.  Dr. Carville has 30 years of veterinary experience.  He and his wife, Donna, are the parents of four children and seven grandchildren.

Dr. Katie C. Berthelot is the daughter of Dr. and Mrs. Carville and graduated from the LSU School of Veterinary Medicine in 2003, exactly 20 years after her father.  Dr. Berthelot has 10 years of veterinary experience.  Dr. Berthelot and her husband, Ty Berthelot, reside in Plaquemine with their three young sons.

Our family extends to the clinic in providing you with a loving and compassionate family atmosphere at our hospital.  We enjoy not only getting to know your pets but also getting to know you and your family.
