Procedural Changes Due to COVID-19

At East Lincoln Animal Hospital our mission to serve clients guides us in everything we do. Delivering on that promise means continually monitoring public health issues that affect our clients and employees. This includes the recent Coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak. We are currently making decisions about business operations and extra measures have been added to our daily cleaning and sanitation efforts as a precaution.

We remain committed to following the guidance of our public health officials.

With this news we have implemented new check in and Rx refill request procedures as well as temporarily changed our working hours.

ELAH will be scheduling all wellness and annual appointments for dogs and cats ages 2-7, six to eight weeks from today. If your pet is overdue or coming due for rabies, please call for an appointment, this vaccine is a priority for our patients.

This decision will allow us to have the time to see our sick patients and emergencies and minimize exposure to our clients and veterinary team as much as we can.

We are here for you and will support you through this difficult time, so please do not hesitate to call us if you have a question or concern about your pet.

Check in Procedures

In an effort to limit exposure we will be checking in patients at the front door to assign your pet an available exam room for your convenience. Due to limited number of exam rooms, we may request that you wait in your car where we will then call you to an exam room via cellphone.

Prescription Refill Procedures

Those needing prescription refills, please call in your Rx request. We will call when the order is complete and process your payment by phone. Upon your arrival please call the clinic and a member of our staff will bring it to your car.

Change in hours

Along with these precautionary changes, we will also be temporarily changing our hours. Instead of being open from 7:30 am - 6:00 pm Monday through Friday, we will now be open from 9:00 am - 5:00 pm. Saturday's normal hours of 8:00 am - 12:00 pm will change to 9:00 am - 12:00 pm.

All of these precautions have been taken in an effort to keep our clients and employees safe.

We thank you for your patience and understanding.

Compassionate Care For Your Pets Since 1978

East Lincoln Animal Hospital is a full-service companion animal hospital that has been providing compassionate care to pets in the Denver, North Carolina area since 1978. Our new and improved facility, designed by our founder, Dr. David A. Wilson, opened in August of 2005. Planned for efficiency and convenience to staff and clients, this new 10,000 square foot facility houses a large reception/waiting area, 10 examination rooms, an in-house pharmacy, a surgical preparation room and surgical suite, special procedures room (for video otoscopy and ultrasound), a radiology room, isolation ward, a closely supervised hospitalization area and intensive care unit with oxygen, and a spacious boarding facility with a separate boarding room for cats.

Our primary goal is to provide state of the art veterinary care to the Denver/Lake Norman area as well as the surrounding communities including Charlotte, Concord, Cornelius, Gastonia, Huntersville, Iron Station, Lincolnton, Mooresville, Mount Holly, and Newton.

At East Lincoln Animal Hospital, in addition to dogs and cats, we treat some exotic pets such as ferrets, gerbils, guinea pigs, hamsters, mice, rabbits, rats, sugar gliders, and the occasional goat. We also provide patient care for reptiles such as non-venomous snakes, iguanas, geckos and others.

Our Mission

Here at East Lincoln Animal Hospital, it is our goal to provide our patients with the best possible quality veterinary medical, surgical, and nursing care while maintaining the highest professional ethics and standards. We strive to offer this care in a clean, friendly, compassionate and professional atmosphere. Our clients will be treated with the respect and understanding that we would like to receive, and our patients will be cared for as though they are our own. We strongly believe in the importance of communicating with our clients and offering client education. We will assess each patient for pain since they cannot speak to us, and take measures to ensure their comfort. For our employees, we seek to provide a safe and fun work environment while promoting teamwork and offering opportunities to grow on a professional level.

Divider Background
Love From Our Clients
  • Excellent and compassionate care. The doctors and staff at East Lincoln truly have a passion for animals. Many own a practical farm of animals at their homes. Our dogs have been treated their for 16 years. We wouldn't take them anywhere else (except the emergency vet if needed). Love these wonderful and talented people.

    Laura C.
  • State of the art health care facility for your pets.

    Ray L.
  • Great Doctors, friendly staff ! My dog loves this place.

    Gina J.
  • Wouldn't trust our dogs to anyone else. We see mostly Dr Redden and she is phenomenal. Most caring vet we have ever had. Been going here for 9+ years and wouldn't take our dogs anywhere else.

    Lori F.
  • This hospitals middle name should be "care" Dr. Johnson treats every patient under her care as if it were her own! Her love and dedication to the well being of pets is very obvious in the care my Dalmatians, Q and Charlotte have received over the years. Dr Wilson was our first point of contact and he was not only "real" during a stressful situation but compassionate to a stressed out mom! I would highly recommend this veterinary clinic to anyone looking for compassion, expertise in the field, and most importantly a love for what they do!

    Emily B.
  • I have been boarding my 2 dogs at East Lincoln for about 5 years now, as well as taking them for all their regular care. They are always extremely helpful, everyone on the staff is super cheerful, helpful, etc. There are other places closer to me, but they are WAAAAY more expensive, but don't really provide anything more. East Lincoln's fees are very reasonable, their customer service is great, my dogs do great there, and I would recommend them to anyone.
