Our Clients say...

Haywood Animal Hospital has been our family's "babies" doctors for over 20 years. You will never find a more caring vet. My dog LOVES going! They go above and beyond ensuring your pet gets the best medical attention.

Nancy H.

I have taken all of my cats here for years and wouldn't trust any place else. They have always put the care and comfort of their patients first.

Pamela L.

We were really impressed when entering the office. First off, it looked very clean and smelled wonderful, which can't be said about several veterinarian clinics we've been to. The staff were amazing: very friendly and attentive. They were so sweet to Cassie and took their time and explained everything that they were going to do for her, as well as all the upfront costs and all post treatments we needed to do when we got home. Dr. Jones was kind enough to contact us the next day about her previous lab work that had been done. So, all in all, a great first visit, and I'm glad we have found a wonderful new vet family for our furbaby.

We’ve brought 3 of our pets here and absolutely adore the care that the vet team provides! Dr. Wilfert is amazing and clearly really cares for the pets that they see. We travel for a living, but they’ve been incredibly accommodating to our needs. We highly recommend this place to any pet parents seeking care for their babies! Thanks for all you do, Haywood!

This was our first visit with our sick kitty. They could not have been any nicer. They definitely care about your fur babies. Very informative and diagnosed our kitty and gave us the antibiotics we needed and showed us how to administer the medication. Definitely our new vet from here on out. Dr. Jones was amazing. We highly recommend. Also. The staff was amazing as well. Thanks so much.

Best vets ever. My dog is absolutely terrified of the vets. He loves the staff and I love them too. Best vet experience I ever had.

They helped save our new baby Bella! They were so sweet and so kind every single employee that worked there! Bella was in really bad shape when we arrived Bella had double ear infections one was so bad it turned into an abcess and had all kinds of infection coming out of her ears and matted so badly and they not only cured Bella they cut and shaved her to get all matted hair and infection off her ears! I just fostered to own but doctor really gave Bella a second chance at life and I will never be able to thank them enough for giving our Bella a second chance at life! We will always be a loyal customer for everything they did for Bella with no judgment on the way she looked! We are going to give Bella the life she deserves we love her already and can't imagine life without her now. She sleeps close to me every night And I love everything of it! A big thanks to Haywood Animal Hospital and everything they do out of love for animals! I will add a footnote when I remember my doctor that treated Bella because she is truly the BEST and deserves all the attention!

Dr. Shoemake has been seeing my dog Mabel since we moved here and always provides excellent care. I recently adopted a second dog who has some anxiety that presents some challenges when bringing her to the vet, and all the staff has been incredibly kind and helpful when dealing with her. She has made tremendous progress because of the extra time they take with her and ways they ensure she is made comfortable during her visits, even during these curbside appointments. I am always impressed with how friendly all of the staff are, but I especially appreciate Jessica and Samantha.
