Welcome to Waxhaw Animal Hospital!

Img5.pngAbout Our Practice:

          Waxhaw Animal Hospital was established in February 1980 by Dr. Kenneth Tapley.  During its existence it has endured a move from the other side of the tracks, as well as an expansion into our Broome street location in 1991.  In August of 2002 Dr. Tanya Burtis an employee with the hospital for over eight years bought the practice from Dr. Tapley and he continues to be a valuable member of our staff.  Then again, another move in 2003, just across the street into our current location.  Even with all of the past growth, the demands on our business and services have far exceeded our expectations. 

            The majority of our patients are dogs and cats, although we also see a variety of other critters, including ferrets, guinea pigs, rabbits, goats, pigs, chickens, squirrels, hedgehogs, and other little pocket pets.

            Our practice tends to be very busy, with over 8000 clients, most of which have several pets.  We see appointments every day except Sunday, with extended hours four nights a week and Saturday mornings as well as boarder pick-up on Sundays.  We perform anywhere from 5-8 surgeries every day of the week.  Many of our surgeries are routine, such as spays, neuters and declaws, but we also perform many extensive orthopedic and soft tissue surgeries as well.  We have a very comprehensive dental program, including routine cleanings, as well as extractions, gingival surgery and reconstructive work.  We also offer a full-line of diagnostic procedures that include in-house blood and electrolyte testing, urine testing, fecal analysis, skin scraping, cytology, and radiology.  Along with the addition of seven exam rooms our current facility has top of the line boarding suites with cat condos, a play area, and indoor/outdoor facilities for our dogs.  We have two surgery suites, with an adjoining kennel dedicated to surgical recovery.  We also have a separate treatment ward and boarding for our in house patients as well.  


Mission Statement:

          To consistently provide excellent care to our patients and superior customer service to our clients.
