On behalf of our entire staff, St. Francis Hospital for Animals would like to welcome you to our community and thank you for visiting us. We appreciate the opportunity to serve your needs and provide quality health care to your pets. St. Francis Hospital for Animals was founded in 1996 by William Cooper, DVM, with the idea that bigger is not always better. We prefer a small town atmosphere with the convenience of a city location. We feel that by taking the time to get to know our clients and patients we can provide a higher standard of patient care and client service. Should you have any ideas or suggestions to help us serve you better, we encourage you to share them with us.
We are happy to offer a number of resources that enable you to learn about how to take better care of your pets. Please feel free to browse our site, particularly the informational articles. The best veterinary care for animals is ongoing nutrition and problem prevention, so becoming knowledgeable about preventative pet care is essential to the ongoing success of your animal’s health. If you have any questions, call 704-527-2030 or email us and we'll promptly get back to you. Our Charlotte veterinarian office is very easy to get to -- and you can find directions on our Contact Us page! We also welcome you to subscribe to our newsletter, which is created especially for Charlotte pet owners.
At St. Francis Hospital for Animals, we treat your pets like the valued family members they are.
