Meet Our Doctors
We are a full-service small animal clinic in Blacksburg, Virginia. We believe that your pets are an important part of your family and they deserve quality care.
Dr. Laurie Halkowich graduated from Virginia Tech with a B.S. in Animal and Poultry Sciences in 2001, and from the Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine with a DVM in 2005. She practiced in Maryland before moving back to Southwest Virginia in 2008. In 2010, Dr. Laurie started Red Bone Mobile Veterinary Services. Although she enjoys seeing patients in the comfort of their own homes, she is excited to offer the many services a stand-alone clinic can provide to her patients. While she enjoys many aspects of veterinary medicine, she is especially passionate about working with older pets.
In her free time, Dr. Laurie enjoys baking, gardening, hiking the AT, cheering on the Hokies and Redskins, and spending time with her husband Bob, and dogs Kermit, Grover, and Betty.
Dr. Malin Fjallstrom is originally from Georgia and received her undergraduate degree from the University of Georgia. She then graduated from the Virginia Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine in 2011. She and her husband fell in love with the area while she was attending school and decided to make the New River Valley their permanent home.
Dr. Fjallstrom has been practicing in Christiansburg since her graduation. She really enjoys working with new pet owners and preventative medicine, and really wants to make sure that everyone feels as comfortable as possible when they visit the clinic.
In her spare time, Dr. Fjallstrom enjoys running, swimming and biking, competing in triathlons, and college football – especially the Hokies and Georgia Bulldogs!
Dr. Amanda Riddile is a 2010 graduate of the Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine. Following graduation, she practiced at a mixed animal clinic in Staunton, Virginia before returning to Virginia Tech to complete a small animal medicine and surgery rotating internship in 2012. After completing her internship, Dr. Riddile worked as an associate small animal veterinarian at Companion Animal Clinic in Blacksburg for four years. Most recently, she has worked at Salem Animal Hospital in Salem, Virginia. Dr. Riddile could not be more excited to be joining Main Street Veterinary Clinic and for the opportunity to be back in Blacksburg.
Dr. Riddile enjoys all aspects of small animal private practice, but is particularly interested in internal medicine, ophthalmology, dermatology, and dentistry. She has pursued numerous continuing education opportunities in canine and feline dentistry and oral surgery.
As a firm believer in the importance of the human-animal bond, Dr. Riddile is dedicated to providing high-quality, individualized, and compassionate care. She believes strongly in good client communication and feels that in order to practice progressive medicine and provide patients with the best care, owners must be active participants in the healthcare process.
In her spare time, Dr. Riddile enjoys spending time in the outdoors. She particularly enjoys hiking, mountain biking, and canoeing with her two and four legged family. Dr. Riddile lives in Blacksburg with her husband, two daughters, three dogs, five cats, and six chickens.
