Durham veterinarian Dr. Windram with cat

At New Hope Animal Hospital, we are proud to be your choice veterinarian in Durham and Chapel Hill. With years of combined experience and a dedication to the highest quality patient care, we are happy to provide a wide range of veterinary services for your beloved pets. Whether you’ve recently adopted a new cat or you’re interested in vet care for your sweet old dog, we’ve got you covered. From wellness exams to boarding and everything in between, we are your trusted full-service veterinarian in the greater Durham area.

Wellness Exams

The foundation of our veterinary practice begins with routine wellness exams for your family pets. With regular wellness exams, we are better able to ensure that your cat or dog is growing properly, catch early signs of illness or disease and provide at-home care steps to help keep them happy and healthy. We believe that it is always much easier to prevent a serious health condition that to treat one. With preventative care, we can inspect your pets inside and out in a comfortable and welcoming setting.

During your pet’s routine wellness exam, our doctors will thoroughly examine their skin and coat, teeth and gums, paws and nails, eyes and ears and their internal organs as well. We may also request a fecal sample and blood samples to complete additional testing. If you have any concerns for their health or behavioral issues, we will discuss these at this time.

Puppy, Kitten & Senior Pet Wellness

With many years of combined experience and a deep love for animals, our highly-skilled staff understands that there are certain stages in your pet’s life where they require special care. In addition to certain behavioral issues that may arise, there are specific health concerns that we must pay attention to during these life stages.

For puppies and kittens, owners will need to pay attention to their diet, keep up with their vaccinations and work on behavioral training. With senior pets, it is important to remember that they are prone to dental issues, obesity, chronic pain, certain cancers and more.

Vaccinations

Your family pets need their core vaccinations to protect against deadly diseases and common viruses. In most cases, we recommend that your dogs and cats begin to receive their vaccinations when they are several weeks old and continue on a vaccination schedule with periodic booster shots as they grow older. Because we understand that each pet is unique, we are happy to tailor their vaccination schedule to fit their specific health and lifestyle needs.

Dental Care

Just like their owners, your pets need regular dental and oral examinations to help prevent periodontal disease, check for infected teeth and catch the early signs of oral cancer. Our experienced veterinary team also offers regular dental cleanings to remove tartar buildup and keep your pet’s teeth and gums healthy. Additionally, we are dedicated to educating families on the importance of at-home dental care as well.

Surgery

As your full-service veterinarian in Durham and Chapel Hill, we are proud to offer a wide range of surgical options to help keep your pet healthy throughout their lifetime. Some of the surgical treatment options we offer include:

• Spay and Neuter Services – Depending on your pet’s specific needs, we can provide spay or neuter services as early as 8 to 9 weeks for cats and dogs. Spaying and neutering your pets is the most effective way to prevent unwanted litters, reduce the unwanted pet population and protect your pets against certain diseases and behavioral issues.
• Dental Surgeries – Diseased, broken or chipped teeth can lead to more serious health issues if left alone. With routine dental surgery, we can easily extract unhealthy teeth and help your pet enjoy a better quality of life.
• Mass Removal & Foreign Body Removal – Whether your pet has a benign mass or they’ve ingested something they shouldn’t have, our skilled surgical team will make them comfortable and safely get them back to normal in no time.

Emergency & Urgent Care

Our knowledgeable and skilled veterinary team will always do our best to accommodate urgent or emergency patients during our regular office hours. We are trained to provide prompt and safe treatment for a wide range of emergency situations, including:

• Heat Stroke
• Poison Ingestion
• Breathing Issues
• Unexplained Bleeding
• Difficult Labor
• Blunt Force Trauma
• Allergic Reactions

If you believe your pet needs emergency veterinary care, be sure to stay calm and call ahead to let us know you will be coming into the hospital. Help your pet focus by doing your best to keep calm and not agitate them. In certain situations, even the most loving and well-behaved pets may become aggressive when agitated or afraid.

If you are unsure whether or not your pet needs urgent veterinarian care, call our pet hospital with any questions you may have. We are always happy to answer any questions and want to ensure your pet receives treatment when they need it the most.

Dog & Cat Boarding

We are happy to offer boarding services for your family pets whenever you’re away. With access to daily exercise, vet care and comfortable accommodations —our boarding services are a great choice for your pet when you’re away from home.
