Dr. Edmond Slaton looks out the window of his veterinary clinic as he waits for clients to arrive on a quiet Saturday morning. The 63-year-old veterinarian has practiced in Madisonville for 32 years. As Hopkins County has slowly drifted away from its agricultural background, Slaton's practice has transformed from focusing on a large animals to personal pets.

Dr. Edmond Slaton, a local veterinarian who has practiced in Hopkins County for more than 30 years, checks on his small patient Smokey. The 3-month-old kitten underwent neutering and declawing surgery at Madisonville Veterinary Clinic. Smokey's owner, James Long, adopted the stray kitten a few weeks ago. "I saw him out there on the side of the road and it took me a while to catch him," says Long, "I pulled off the road, chased him, caught him, played with him, fed him, and decided to keep him."
