Our parking lot is open. Please drive up the original 814 drive to park. Foot traffic is welcome to use the 820 drive.
Please keep in mind that we will have regular hours on Saturday September 4th (8-12) but our hospital will be closed until Tuesday September 7th at 7:30am. Should you need medication refills please contact us by Friday morning September 3rd to allow us time to get your refills ready for pick up Friday or Saturday.
We are welcoming clients into our hospital with their pets for appointments!
Our historic building does have a new upgrade for fresh air inside, but our exam rooms are still relatively small. We are asking our clients and staff members to wear masks indoors regardless of vaccine status due to the close quarters when handling your pets. Should you prefer not to enter the hospital, we will continue to offer curbside service.
We are offering an outdoor waiting area to allow everyone to spread out and be mask free if they choose.
Finally, we ask that all medication pick-ups call ahead so we can try to limit your wait time.
As always, we are happy to talk to you if any concerns arise.
Please use these links below to get the publications from the American Veterinary Medical Association regarding COVID-19 and how it relates to your pet's health and care. We will continue to share any information we receive with you here.
Our original home was a 1910 Bungalow that was largely destroyed in a fire Thanksgiving weekend 2019. It was torn down in July 2021. We still intend to replace the building once we have a plan that will meet historic district approval.
Our custom built modular animal hospital gives us exam rooms, reception area, medical treatment, extra storage and laundry space. It will be with us until the replacement building for 814 is built.
1) We are back in our old parking lot at our original location 814 East Blvd. Please call our normal phone number 704-808-7387 to talk with reception about making an appointment.
2) On-line pharmacy is still working and is checked daily for approvals.
3) We are offering full veterinary services including x-rays, surgeries, and dental cleanings in our new facilities.
Dear Dilworth Animal Hospital Family,
Thank you so much for all of the love and support sent out and expressed to us and our staff. We have been so moved by the offers of help and kindness. This fire has really brought home to us that Dilworth Animal Hospital is not a place. It's a family.
With Love and Thanks,
Jill and Matthew Wheelock and all of us at Dilworth Animal Hospital
Our philosophy can be summarized in two words: “Compassionate Care.”
This means top quality medicine paired with a sensitivity to the needs of your family. We recognize that there are many factors that come into play for each patient and their family. We strive to listen to and address all of these needs. We take great pride in the amount of time devoted to educating our families. Your family deserves to know why a particular protocol is recommended and what the value of these treatments will be in the long term. We also feel that it is important to help differentiate between what is needed versus what is optimal. We will always treat your “family members” as if they were our very own.
We are honest, hardworking, and very good at the medicine that we practice. We are also ferociously proud that we are able to help and serve our community around us. Mostly we love what we do and we have a fun time doing it!
