About Us

cocker1.pngAsheboro Animal Hospital has been serving the Asheboro community since the early 1960’s and we continue to do our best to serve our clients and our community today.  Our goal is to provide affordable, top quality care to every patient we see.  Dr. Canipe purchased Asheboro Animal Hospital June 1, 1991 and since that time we have served our community by participating in quarterly rabies clinics (the last Tuesday in March, June, September, and one Tuesday in December) to provide greatly discounted rabies vaccines for pets and we are the only Veterinary Hospital in the area that has a “good Samaritan Policy” to provide comfort for injured stray animals and wildlife without payment (if the owner is found, they are responsible for all charges incurred).

We are growing fast thanks to the support and referrals of all of our dedicated clients. We started with a staff of only four in 1991 and have grown to a staff of 25 and we are all excited about our new 7000 sq. ft. facility which we moved into in May, 2002.  It allows us to serve our clients more efficiently with 6 exam rooms, separate dog and cat waiting areas, all indoor runs and cages for dogs and NEW “cat condos” for the cats, as well as more room to allow school and explorer groups to come and see what veterinary medicine is all about.

Appointments Preferred,

Walk-ins Welcome

Doctors get in around 8 am but have to check on hospitalized patients and laboratory results first unless there is a life threatening emergency. There is a additional $15 urgent care fee if you do not have an appointment and one is not available at the time.

Appointments start at 9 am.

True emergencies are seen first, then appointments and finally walk-ins in the order in which they were checked in. We know your time is valuable and do everything we can to get to you and your pet as soon as we can. We appreciate you understanding.

If you only want your pet's nails trimmed, rabies vaccine or blood drawn, no appointment is necessary because a technician or staff member will be glad to help you with that. If you ever have any questions, concerns or suggestions, please let us know.

Thank you,

We greatly appreciate your trust in us.

and the Staff of Asheboro Animal Hospital
