About Us

The Animal Hospital of Statesville opened its doors on Mocksville Highway in February,1974. Before splitting into separate small and large animal practices in 1980, the hospital was a joint facility with ownership shared between Dr. Dave Parks and Dr. Dwight Blackwelder. Dr. Chip Cooney joined the small animal practice in 1995 and became a partner in 1998. Upon Dr. Parks' retirement in 2004, Dr. Cooney assumed full ownership of the Animal Hospital of Statesville.

Since taking full ownership, Dr. Cooney has totally remodeled and modernized our facility, equipping it with state of-the-art equipment and highly skilled doctors and staff. Community involvement is emphasized. Weekly staff meetings encourage staff to share problems and solutions, making customer service and patient care our top priority. Dr. Cooney has built an organization where our top concern is working together toward common goals: To honor God by serving pets and their owners, to provide quality care and education that enhance the human-animal bond, and to live a culture of joy while taking work seriously. His leadership has brought out the best in his staff in all departments, and he encourages each of us to excel in the things we do best in order to achieve our goal – to provide premium care and exceed client expectations. We serve the Statesville/Troutman/Mooresville/Iredell County area, providing advanced small animal veterinary medicine, surgery and dentistry, always believing that at Animal Hospital of Statesville, Pets Are Family, Too!
