We want to reassure you that Veterinary care is an essential service.
For the safety of you and our staff we are restricting entry into our office to pets only. Appointments do take a bit longer during this time, we apologize for the inconvenience. We ask that all medication pick-ups and vaccines call ahead so we can try to limit your wait time.
As always we are happy to talk to you about your concerns. Given the volume of calls we are receiving we may have to have you leave a message and call you back. Thank you for your patience. We apologize for the inconvenience.
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. While the front of the building doesn't look too bad, the severe damage is still clearly visible from our parking lot behind the building. We are sad to see the building this way and many have asked what will happen to 814. The building will be torn down after a 12 month hold as directed by the historic district. We are held for demolition until July 2021
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!
