About Us


Your Pet's Health is Our Priority

Matthews Animal Clinic opened in 1968, when Matthews was a small town with one grocery, one barber and two hardware stores. Back then, we were a full-service clinic, providing healthcare services for companion animals, farm animals and horses alike. It wasn't unusual to see a horse trailer in the parking lot, or come in to find that the doctor was out delivering a calf.

That all changed as Matthews started to grow. In 1977, we became a two-veterinarian practice and by 1996, we were a five-veterinarian practice. In the meantime, we ended the large animal aspect of our practice to focus more fully on providing the highest-quality, most personal care to the dogs, cats and exotic pets in our community.

Now we're the oldest and largest veterinary hospital in the Matthews area. We attribute this growth to our passion for what we do and the commitment we make to each pet and pet owner who walks in our door.

AAHA Accreditation

Matthews Animal Clinic is accredited by the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) - a designation achieved by a very small percentage of animal hospitals in the country. AAHA is the world's leading association of companion animal practitioners. To maintain AAHA certification, our hospital must pass comprehensive inspections of our facility, medical equipment, records and management.

Giving Back and Saying Thanks to the Matthews Community

We're also devoted to the welfare of the helpless animals in our community. We donate approximately $35,000 worth of free and discounted services per year to groups such as the Union County Humane Society, the Friends of Feral Felines, Mecklenburg County Humane Society and Project HALO.

We also work hard to assist the concerned animal lovers of the community in fostering, treating and finding homes for the many stray, abandoned and mistreated animals in the area. If you would like to help any of these groups in their fine work, please contact us to find out how to donate time, money and supplies.
