From Our Family To Yours...

Hickory Veterinary and Specialty Hospital was founded in 1956 as a team of professionals committed to excellence in animal care. Now we, as a third generation, family-owned hospital are proud to offer services that include wellness, emergency and specialty areas.

Our continued goal is to deliver the highest quality of veterinary medicine to our patients. We became AAHA accredited in 1970, which holds us to the highest standard of care, later becoming accredited as a specialty practice in 2014. We are sensitive to the care and concern that each client brings to our hospital for his or her pet. We serve the needs of our clients and their pets with a competent staff, excellent equipment, 24-hour staffing, and continuous accessibility to our facility.
