Keeping your pet healthy and happy

Hospital Business SignageFinding the right hospital with the right doctors is not always an easy task. At Hickory, we realize the frustration many pet owners feel when choosing a veterinary hospital. So we decided to make it easy for our clients. We took a primary care veterinary hospital with dedicated general practitioners and added experienced specialists in surgery, oncology, cardiology, radiology, ophthalmology, rehabilitation and acupuncture. Then we went one step further and made the medical facility open 7 days a week, 365 days a year from 7:00AM to 9:00 PM to receive emergency and critical cases, giving clients the peace of mind that advanced veterinary medicine is available. Inpatient overnight care is monitored by our talented staff of veterinary technicians and an on call doctor.

Hickory Vet Patient InteractionWhether you are a current, future, or referral client, when you contact Hickory Veterinary and Specialty Hospital you will speak with one of our friendly receptionists. They will be able to make your primary care appointment for you. If you are being referred by your veterinarian to our facility, then our referral coordinators will ask you a few questions and advise you to either come in as an emergency or schedule an appointment at your earliest convenience with one of our specialists. When you arrive you will be greeted by our reception staff who will notify the doctor of your arrival. One of our experienced veterinary technicians will take you into an exam room and get basic information. You will meet with one of our doctors who will examine your pet, evaluate all symptoms and advise you of the options available. If you are a referral client, a report of your visit will be promptly prepared and forwarded to your own veterinarian. This report will outline your pet’s condition, laboratory tests performed, treatments performed, medications prescribed and follow up recommendations.
