Our COVID-19 Policies

While our standard operating protocols may have changed to increase our patients’ and clients’ safety, you can continue to expect the same exceptional care and service from Mills Creek Animal Hospital, COVID or no COVID. See our updated COVID-19 policies below to find out more about how we’re keeping you and your pets safe.

Curbside Care

Currently, our hospital is performing curbside appointments only. To schedule a visit, simply contact us as you typically would. When you and your pet arrive, stay in your car and call to let us know you’re ready. One of our team members will take your pet into our facility where we’ll provide the necessary treatments. If you need any food and/or medication refills, let us know and we’ll bring them out to your car. When your pet’s appointment is complete, we will bring them out to you, then call you after to discuss the appointment and collect your payment.


Our services are currently being prioritized based on the resources we have available. If there is something your pet needs, please give us a call so we can discuss it and help you schedule an appointment.

Online Pharmacy

You can always use our online pharmacy if your pet needs a refill on their medication, prescription diet, or supplement. Every product you order online will be shipped right to your front door, so you won’t need to drive out to our hospital.

If you have any questions about our COVID-19 policies or need to make an appointment, call us today at (704) 802-1005!

Offering In-House Lab Testing and X-Ray Services to the pets of Concord, NC.

Mills Creek Animal Hospital is equipped with an in-house diagnostic laboratory, digital radiography, and EKG for thorough testing and superior treatment for your pet. Our veterinary team also partners with national veterinary laboratories when more specific testing is needed. Whether your pet is seeing us for their annual exam or to have an illness investigated, our diagnostic tools are an essential part of their overall care. Without them, we wouldn’t be able to understand your pet’s condition fully or be able to make informed decisions about their treatment.

The need for lab tests to maintain and improve your pet’s health

With a physical examination, we can only see what’s happening on the surface. With our lab tests, we can assess organ function, determine blood cell count, detect signs of an infection, diagnose parasites, and much more. In short, they can give us a better idea of how healthy your pet is currently, and whether they’ll need treatment for an underlying condition. The sooner we can diagnose an issue, the sooner we can treat it.

Our in-house laboratory allows us to perform a variety of important tests, from blood panels to fine-needle aspirates.

Some of these tests include:
  • CBC (complete blood count)
  • Heartworm and tick-borne disease testing
  • Blood chemistry
  • Urinalysis
  • Blood glucose
  • Blood pressure monitoring
  • Fecal exam
  • …and more

Digital cat and dog X-Ray

X-ray imaging has come a long way. At Mills Creek Animal Hospital, we use a state-of-the-art digital X-ray machine to diagnose bone fractures and deformities, joint issues, heart and lung problems, and more.

With digital radiography, X-ray images are of a much higher quality and clarity, and radiation exposure for your pet is significantly lower. And if you need to take your pet to a specialist, we can email their X-ray images with just a few clicks.
