Testimonials

Our dog has always received the most professional and caring treatment in the past and will in years to come. We are so thankful to have such a reliable vet so near to our home. The staff at this vet could not be more friendly and thoughtful. The hiring practices at this vet are superb to have found such pet-friendly personnel. The service hours are the best. Good luck in the years ahead.

-Marvin W.

The care and attention our dog receives while being boarded at Mooresville Animal Hospital are exceptional.  We had to board him there initially due to a viral infection, and they handled everything from administering his prescriptions to exercise and even grooming prior to picking him up. The entire staff is outstanding, and our dog seems to actually enjoy being boarded there! It’s nice to know that if something went wrong while we were away, he has the best possible care right on site.

-Neal M.

I’ve have been here twice with an emergency situation, and they are fantastic! Both times I have been so pleased with the front counter, techs and vet. They are kind, sympathetic, and very customer/patient oriented. I absolutely love this vet! Prices are always great, too!”

-Sheree M.

“I have taken two dogs to Mooresville Animal Hospital over the course of nine years. Great vets. I have also boarded my dog here. They went out of their way to help me when I misread their closing hours and was ten minutes late last Christmas. I am still thankful.

-Donna J.

They have been wonderful in treating our dog that was hit by a car and has a severely fractured hind leg. They offer k-laser, which is awesome. Best prices and great staff.”

-Carol O.

I never feel rushed when I’m here. They really take the time to listen to any issues I’m having with my pups, and I appreciate that.”

-Kristin C.

“We bring all of our pets here. The staff is always very kind and accommodating. Highly recommend.”

-Kate T.

Great service and caring and knowledgeable staff. We were seen promptly, and our pets were examined in timely manner. Highly recommend.”

-Brent M.

“The staff was extremely compassionate and caring when my husband and I called with very short notice to bring our 17-year-old cat to their office to have him put to sleep. He had been in declining health for over a year and a half. “Mister” had been a patient there for a few years. We even boarded him at the old facility and the new facility while on vacation. The staff saw us right away, let us choose where we’d like to wait with Mister (we chose an exam room), gave us time to decide and say our goodbyes, and they were so loving to Mister and kind to us. They didn’t rush anything and let us take our time with Mister. It was such a difficult time, and the staff there helped us through it. When we adopted our new kitty, Gordon, the staff took excellent care of him for his initial appointment. I feel confident in the care our two dogs and our cats receive there and thank them for their compassion.”

-Carey W.

Friendly, caring and knowledgeable staff. Clean, attractive building. Open until 7pm weekdays and has weekend hours as well. If we have a problem a vet tech can handle, that’s a walk in appointment.”

-Dianne S.

I had the best experience when I took my dog in for a ripped dewclaw. They accept walk-ins, which many other vets in the area don’t. The receptionist was joyful. The tech was very helpful and handled my dog so well. And the vet was great! He was very knowledgeable and understanding of my financial situation. Overall I was very impressed. I’ll definitely be using them for future visits. Plus, as a new client, your dog gets a complementary spa day!”

-Emily G.

I had to put a dog down for the second time in a year. Both dogs were 16. This place cares. Very satisfied each and every time I go there. I took 2 dogs there today for their yearly exams and again was highly satisfied.”

-Keith C.

Staff is great and appointment times are respected. Very happy we found this vet. I would recommend to anyone.”

-Lisa L.

Dr. Carlene Smith is fantastic. Our cats and dogs are known and liked here. Everybody goes out of their way to take great care of them. Beth, the tech, and Cathy at the front desk are so patient.”

-Anita M.

This is not my regular vet, but this past Sunday, my almost 14-year-old terrier woke up in distress, gasping for breath. I knew what had to be done but couldn’t find a vet closer than one of the emergency vets. Then my daughter saw Mooresville Animal Hospital was open till 4:00PM. I called to be sure they could aid in his journey across the Rainbow Bridge. I don’t really write reviews but even through my constant crying, we got checked in, paid, and peacefully said goodbye all in about 10 minutes. It was just nice to have quick, professional appointment at such a difficult time. I don’t know the doctor’s name that we saw but she was wonderful. Thank you for being quick, calm and kind. Because of this, I would highly recommend this vet.”

-Cheryl C.

I love my vet clinic! I’ve been going here for two years! The vet even helps me with my wildlife rehab! Great crew and great clinic!!! The new clinic is amazing and well deserving! Everyone should give this place a chance, especially is you love your animals as much as I do!”

-Terra O.

They are very caring to your needs. My cat broke his leg, and with months for splinting and intense weekly visits and checkups, my cat’s leg is healed and getting better with each day. Surgery was the prime choice but cost was way beyond my wallet. I can’t thank them all enough.”

-Felicia S.

We brought our new puppy in last week, and I love the changes that have been made! The appointments have decreased wait times so much!! Everyone we came in contact with was so nice. Mandy, one of the managers made sure our visit exceeded our expectations! She was also our tech and was so great walking us through different vaccines and what to expect with our new family member! Their prices are easy on the pocketbook too! Definitely will be back!”

-Jose F.

I have had nothing but kindness and efficiency from this place for my pets. I have had a 14-year-old brother and sister lab mixes that had passed away and one that had to be put to sleep. They were just awesome, and I can’t thank them enough.”

-Mary W.

Great vet! They have great people who work here. Their prices are the lowest around for their services and boarding. They always remember my dog’s name, and when I pick him up after a vacation, he’s not “weird” like most dogs get after being boarded. They really care about your pet and treat them like one of their own.”

-Josh S.

The staff sincerely cares for the health and well-being of their patients. They are affordable, easy to get in touch with and quick to respond to messages. I’ve received follow-up calls from their vets to check on my pet’s progress. It is a busy office, but I always receive excellent service and feel like my needs are always met.”

-Jenn F.

I recently moved from NY to NC and couldn’t be happier with my new vet. The staff is amazing, and Kathy made Gracie and I feel so welcomed! Dr. Cloninger has made me very happy with the care that was given to my dog– 2 paws up!!”

-Bonnie T.

This is a wonderful veterinary clinic. They prefer appointments but do see walk-ins. They are easy to get to. They are on Hwy 21 in Mooresville, NC. Most dogs tend to be a little bit anxious about going to the vet clinic, but my rottweiler loves going to Mooresville Animal Hospital. I think by now she knows everyone who works there.”

-Mary G.

We brought our cat in on Saturday for his final vet visit. We had to put him to sleep. Dr. Austin and all of the staff were so understanding, thoughtful, compassionate, and patient with us. We really appreciated it.”

-Dan H.

Dr. Smith is amazing!  Over the last few months, we have been caring for my chocolate lab that is ill. At my last visit, Dr. Smith spent 45 minutes with us, and not once did she make me feel like she was in a rush. She was caring, compassionate and patient. I recommend her to everyone asking for vets. In addition to her wonderful demeanor, the pricing is very affordable. Not sure I will get another pet anytime soon, but I will continue to speak highly of this place, specifically, Dr. Smith. Thank you.”

-Amy T.

The vets are always nice and caring with our dogs. Very pleased with the services. Plus a senior discount always helps!!”

-Cammy T.

I cannot say enough good things about my first experience there under the new ownership! They were so accommodating, kind, thorough, and fairly priced!! I would recommend this animal hospital to everyone!”

-Lauri D.

I have a pug, and he is my son.. I do not trust anyone except the wonderful people at Mooresville Animal Hospital. I can call with a question without them making me feel stupid. When he gets his nails clipped, it’s a chore and takes several of us to hold him, but they are so gentle. I would not go anywhere else.”

-Caren D.

I have been going to Mooresville Animal Hospital for several years. I went in today and brought my dog Sadie in for her visit with the new vet. She was great, and I could tell she has a real passion and LOVES animals. When someone works with animals all day every day, it is easy to just do your job and make your pet feel like a number, but the staff is wonderful every time I go in, and I definitely was impressed with the new vet. Prices are always fair, and my wait time without an appointment was less than 30 minutes to get in and have the doctor in front of me. Can’t ask for much more than that. Keep up the good work, guys.”

-Neil T.

A good ole common-sense kind of vet. They aren’t looking to clean out your wallet, just to take good care of your pet. We’ve been really happy here.”

-Marianne N.

The staff was great. My mother and I loved the remodel. My only dog loved that place too.”

-David M.

“We have been with them for 21 years. I would not go anyone else. They love our pets like we love them. Good care and easy on the pocketbook”

-Ruth F.

So grateful for the kindness that Dr. Cloninger and staff have shown to my dog. She is older and has some health issues, so she has to visit a doctor frequently. Dr. Cloninger always makes her comfortable and at ease.”

-Bradley N.

I’ve been bringing my dog and ferret here for about 7 years and they’re great! Dr. Carpenter is the only vet here who can see ferrets, so I always make sure he’s in when my ferret needs his vaccines.”

-Delaney R.

I highly recommend this animal hospital.  The staff is made up of real people who know how to relate to both animals & people.  Dr. Shloop is amazing!

-Mary M.

I drive from the Northlake Mall area just to take my cat to this vet. They are always so thorough and do not nickel and dime you to death. Prices are extremely reasonable, and they have separate entrances for dogs and cats, which I think is what every vet should have. It’s less stress on the animals that are likely already stressed to begin with. The care is just wonderful, and the follow-up by the vet themselves, when necessary, is impressive.  Sometimes you might have to wait a little longer than normal, but it is worth it. I HIGHLY recommend this veterinary office!!”

-Jennifer A.

We have taken our loved pets here since 1993 and always appreciate that they are personable, reasonable, knowledgeable and genuinely care about each pet.”

-Jeff B.

The owner of the practice is a compassionate doctor who truly loves animals. She is a knowledgeable and a skilled surgeon. The staff is helpful and competent. I am comfortable and trust Dr. Cloninger with all my animals!”

-Natalie S.

The call came from my wife that our daughter’s Yorkipoo needed bladder surgery. They were at an animal hospital where she was diagnosed and an estimate of $722-$914 was given. A few calls and internet searches led us to Mooresville Animal Hospital, where a more reasonable estimate was given and they could perform the surgery sooner. Today we just picked the dog up from Mooresville Animal Hospital after her surgery and two-day stay. She is doing great. The staff was great and the price was $615, which included an additional charge for trimming her nails. We had a great experience.”

-Warren G.

Been going there for years, never been anything but satisfied.  My favorite aspect is the separate entrances for dogs and cats!”

-Paul T.

This place is awesome, the veterinarians are top shelf. They have flexible hours also. Very impressed”

-Joel S.

Great staff and very friendly vets and vet techs! My puppy loves the vet techs and the vets! They are so gentle that he doesn’t even whine when they give him his shots. The vet techs take up a lot of time with you and answer all of your questions. If they’re not sure about the answer, they will ask the vet. They all seem to love their jobs and the animals. They love on my puppy every time we are in there. Their kennel service is great also! I highly recommend them to anyone. My neighbor recommended them to me, and I greatly appreciate it. We couldn’t ask for a better office for our pup. We’ve used another place in town, and it doesn’t compare to Mooresville Animal Hospital!!”

-Stacie J.

Just had our first appointment with Dr. Cloninger, and she was so sweet and helpful. I felt super comfortable with the veterinarian, as well as her assistant– both gave Lillie lots of love, and I know Layla will be excited to come as well. Looking forward to new beginnings.”

-Heather E.

I have taken my dogs to Mooresville Animal Hospital for twenty plus years, but I was skeptical about talking my four Boston terriers to Mooresville Animal Hospital when Drs. Sloop and Carpenter retired and sold the practice. On November 3rd, Sadie, my 12-year-old Boston, developed an emergency involving her right eye, and being an emergency department nurse, I knew she needed to be seen right away. I took her to Mooresville Animal Hospital without an appointment, but due to the extent of her injury, Sadie was evaluated right away by Mandy, and Sadie was taken back within 15 minutes. Unfortunately, Sadie lost her right eye, but Dr. Shirley and the staff were so good with Sadie. I felt comfortable bringing Sadie back for the surgery the next morning to remove the eyeball. Once Sadie was out of surgery, Dr. Shirley called me giving me an extensive update on the surgery & Sadie post op. I was able to pick Sadie up that evening, but Mandy texted me checking on her that night and told me to call if I had any problems. Dr. Shirley called me the next day checking on Sadie. I was so pleased with every aspect of my precious dog’s care and very happy I decided to stay with this practice. Dr. Shirley and every staff member I came in contact with showed concern and compassion caring for my baby. Sadie is doing very well thanks to Dr. Shirley. I will continue to take my Boston terriers to Mooresville Animal Hospital because of the excellent attention and care my pet received. Dr. Shirley is the best and now giving Sadie acupuncture treatments to help restore the sensation and improve neurological function in her lower back and hind legs due to an injury six years ago. I cannot say enough about this wonderful staff, and I know about customer service because I work in healthcare.”

-Sylvia L.

I had originally scheduled a Friday appointment, but things got worse before then. I called to see if I could get a same-day appointment on Wednesday, and they were able to fit me in at 5pm. Dr. E and Kristy took great care of Jynx and were very understanding that she is a service dog and works for me and allowed me to be with her throughout her entire visit. Thanks for taking great care of her. Mooresville Animal Hospital will be my permanent vet from now on.”

-Jonathan H.

We really loved the passion all staff members had towards our dogs. Prices were good, and availability is very convenient. We recommend over any hospital!”

-Latisha V. 

Everyone is awesome and really takes time with your pet and talks so you can understand what’s going on. Sheena is the best groomer ever. My Buddy loves to go get his hair done.”

-Jackie P.

Love how they treat me and my dogs! Austin, you are the best! I give 5 out of 5 stars!!!”

Debbie V.

I absolutely adore this vet. I moved here from out of state, and Mooresville Animal Hospital was recommended to me. They got my sweet kitty in the day we called, as well as a week later when he needed urgent care. Sadly it was his time to go, but the staff was great. I stood in the checkout area sobbing, and the receptionist just hugged me and calmed me down. They even sent a sympathy card to us in the mail. I will absolutely be bringing all of my animals here for veterinary care!”

-Kasandra B. 

Today, after I explained how my dog is terrified of the shiny silver exam table, the doctor examined my dog on the bench next to me. I was so pleased with how attentive everyone was. It was our best visit ever — thank you!”

-Patricia B.

Honestly, I seem to be at Mooresville Animal Hospital weekly. The staff is always kind and helpful. Recently, we had to put our Scotty down. It was an extremely difficult situation. Marley’s regular vet, Dr. Austin (who had been helping us with his cancer treatment) wasn’t on duty – the other vet was so kind and sympathetic. In closing, I truly want to say thank you to Kimberly at the front desk and Austin, the vet tech — these two employees go out of their way to be compassionate and professional. Highly recommend Mooresville Animal Hospital for all pet needs.”

-Cauley C.

My husband and I brought our 6-month-old Great Pyrenees in for his first checkup. We adopted him the day before, and he was covered in fleas. We walked in without an appointment and explained our situation, and every staff member we encountered was super friendly and helpful. Dr. Cloninger was great! I really felt like she took her time to examine Samson and answer all of our first-time dog parent questions.”

-Delanie D.

I was unhappy with the vet I was using after moving from Maine and called Mooresville Animal Hospital. They got me in right away and listened to what I had to say. They knew my dog better than me! After fighting a cough for 3 months, he is cough-free a day later since he got the meds that I know work for him. And at half the cost.”

-Tanya B. 

Sadly, we were here to put our beloved Kasey down because she was sick. I cannot express the kindness and compassion that was shown to our family during such a difficult time. Kasey was a part of our family for 11 years, and it was not an easy decision for us to make. The staff here was AMAZING. Dr. Aquino was so caring and made the process a bit easier. Thank you.”

-Shelley E. 

My experience with the staff and doctor was excellent!! Austin was very good checking me in and taking Sophie for her shot and heartworm test!! Dr. Aquino was very informative about Sophie’s anxiety for the storms!! Thank you very much for great service!! 5 star rating!!”

-Barbara R.

I have to say, I have been to a few veterinary clinics over the past few months, and this was the best visit yet! I went in looking for information for my dog and spoke with Mandy at the front desk. She was extremely informative, engaging, and made me feel like I was already part of their family! I look forward to bringing Mueller to them for all of his visits.”

-JR F.

The doctors and staff at Mooresville Animal Hospital are so great to work with. Dr. Kathy Knodell, who did the surgery on our lab, Tess, is so kind and capable. She took the necessary time to share her knowledge with me before the procedure, and then called after to let me know everything is ok!! Thanks so much!!”

-Judith M.

“I just want to thank the whole staff for making yesterday, one of the worst days of my life, a little easier. My baby girl was struck by a car yesterday evening. I raced her to y’all and was welcomed with nothing but open arms from the moment I pulled in. Austin raced out to my car the moment I pulled in and very carefully carried my love inside. (He later told me that he knew that look of worry and just started running to us.) The ladies at the front helped me with some paperwork, and the vet talked about options. Unfortunately there wasn’t much we could do but to put her to rest and end her suffering. Her daddy and I stayed by her side the whole time, and the staff made sure we were ready to say goodbye and even gave us some time to grieve after. My poor baby girl was in the best hands possible at her worst moment. I wouldn’t wish what happened on anyone, but if you ever need to take your babies somewhere, this is the place to go. Thank you, everyone, from the bottom of my heart! Your staff is amazing. Thanks again and a million more times.”

-Krista F.

The entire staff showed my husband and I such compassion and love for our sweet Dakota, whom we had to put down after being sick with a growth on her spleen. Thank you so much for your caring and understanding as we fought through our tears.”

-Barbara F.

When I bring my dog in for well visits, they are awesome. When we board her, the staff says how much they enjoy her. She had some issues, and the staff was more than I could hope for. They are so caring and loving with her! They treat us like family.”

-Amanda B.

I have been going here for years. I really love Dr. Smith, Dr. Aquino, and Samantha. They have always been so caring and helpful! My cats love them! I also like how you can walk in or make an appointment!”

-Lindsey H.

I’m very pleased with the way they treated my little Mollie. Very kind and caring. Not in a hurry. So eager to listen to you and answer any questions you may have.”

-Martha G. 

We saw Dr. Shirley for acupuncture and we loved her! You can tell she’s passionate about her work, and she handled my Pekingese, Lucy, like her own! Anyone who hasn’t tried acupuncture for dwarf dogs with IVDD needs to try it! It worked wonders for my baby girl. Dr. Shirley made us feel secure with the decision to come to her, and Lu felt like a million bucks when she left! Love her! Your front desk people are so friendly and helpful! Good job, you guys!”

-Sidney S.

I really like how they took excellent care of my sick furry baby, Buddy. Thank you, Anna Austin and staff. Buddy is feeling much better today. Thanks.”

-Annette M.

I love how they treat my babies like their humans. My family and I have always taken our animals here. I could not imagine going anywhere else.”

-Kristy L.

Dr. E and her vet tech, Austin, did a fantastic job with our sick bulldog, Harley Jo! I loved the personal care and how they gave us options, as some are super costly. They seem to understand that not everyone is loaded and can afford every test available, while still giving us great care!”

-Deona B.

We had an emergency with our cat Wednesday, and I was blown away by the service we received. The receptionist, techs, and vet were so kind and caring. They followed up to check on her twice after we had left. They were so accommodating to our needs/requests. I was very impressed!”

-Sheree M.

Our friends recommended this place. They got us in immediately when our Bella was sick. Very grateful.”

– Julia H.

Took our 16-year-old male in to see Dr. Cloninger. She was amazing. Very gentle and soft spoken. Great bedside manner. She gave us info on what was going on with Harley and gave us an antibiotic to help him. I feel very good about Dr. Cloninger. She shows how much she cares. We have also seen Dr. Fine, and she is also very good. I like the soft, gentle approach they offer”

-Sadie H.

A huge shout-out and sincerest, heartfelt thanks to Dr. Kathleen Knodel for all her concern, compassion and professional expertise in providing the utmost best care for our cat, Willie, who was recently injured. Because of your prompt attention and taking such great care of him, you saved his life! He’s getting back to normal every day, even though he’s still on the mend. Mooresville Animal Hospital is indeed a superb vet facility, and one I highly recommend to others The staff is also friendly and compassionate as well. I couldn’t have found a better veterinarian office for my family of pets!!! God bless you all!!!!”

– Nancy C.

Love this place. Everyone is helpful and nice. The doctors take their time during the visit. They discuss all options and recommend great products. They have even called to check on my girl after she was sick.”

-Christy L.

Dr. Madison is amazing with our fur kids. She is face-to-face with them, making them comfortable. A great personal experience!”

-Cary M.

I have always had wonderful care here for my two golden retrievers, Brady & Gracie!! The doctors are all so caring & wonderful!!”

-Antoinette S.

Best veterinary services in the area. Staff goes above and beyond! Prices are the best around as well.”

-Sarah S.

Open 7 days a week with same-day availability for illness or injuries. Separated canine and feline seating for patient comfort. Boarding, grooming and pet boutique on site. Overall convenient.”

-Mkaressa H.

Took my bulldog in as a walk-in on a Sunday due to a flare-up with his allergies. I called and they had informed me 2 walk-ins were there but to come in and they would see me as soon as possible. The location was convenient and lobby very clean! Upon checking in & taking our information, we were told we’d be seen as soon as possible.  Our wait was short (15-20 min), and we were escorted to a clean room by a nice assistant. All in all, the exam and doctor were wonderful! She was very knowledgeable, polite and gave us multiple options with costs up front for each. The total visit time, which included testing, was approximately an hour from start to finish, and the cost was by far GREAT considering it was a Sunday visit. I found a new location for my bulldog and couldn’t be more excited!! Thank you, Mooresville Animal Hospital!”

-Margie P.

We found a GREAT vet at Mooresville Animal Hospital named Dr. Aquino. He is very through. So happy we found him last week as accommodating to schedule and easy to get in contact with. He is young, compassionate and does not give up. He diagnosed our Teddy with DKA that our previous vet missed. They have a separate grooming section and entrance (we haven’t used yet), so please check this place out if you are looking for a new place for your fur babies. The front desk staff and techs are very friendly and compassionate with the whole team working together for you and your pet. There is an internal lab for most testing, so there are fast results and care plans.”

Greg B.

The front office staff could see right away my Zuesy was hurting and struggling, and they offered him a room so he could just rest while we waited, which wasn’t only about 10 min. Very caring and informative staff, very helpful! Clean and spacious. Overall, a great experience.”

-Heather C.

I’ve always been treated well by all the veterinarians and staff members here. We have brought our pets here for 40 years or so (as long as I can remember). I grew up with Dr. Carlene Smith, and she has devoted her life to pets from a very early age. She is highly intelligent, dedicated, and has such a loving heart. We are lucky to have Dr. Smith practicing here in Mooresville, NC.”

-Glenna M.

I have been going to Dr. Sloop with my animals since the early 90’s.  This place is so comforting for me.   They really care about animals there. It’s not just a job to them.  I will always use Mooresville Animal Hospital.”

-T.Y.

Another clinic wanted to cut my dog open to see what he had eaten, suspecting a blockage unseen on x-rays. I brought the dog here for a second opinion. The doctor stuck his finger up the dog’s butt and knew there was no blockage. He then pressed on the dog’s back and declared the dog had a back injury. The prescription was to keep the kids off the dog and 2 weeks of rest and drugs. The dog was back to normal as advertised.”

-Todd B.

I had an emergency situation with my beagle, and I found them professional, helpful, and affordable. The wait times were a little long, but I didn’t mind since my dog received the care she needed.  Will definitely utilize again.
