About Stonewater Veterinary Hospital

It has always been my long-term ambition to own an animal hospital after I have obtained years of experience. We came to North Carolina in 2015 and rapidly grew to love and invest in our community. We live in the suburbs south of Raleigh, and while the area has grown, the veterinary community has not. Clayton offers that tranquil suburb appeal while still being close to the hustle and bustle of city life. It is one of North Carolina’s fastest expanding districts while still preserving a small-town vibe. With a plethora of locally-owned restaurants, breweries, and stores, this fusion of life makes it one of our favorite places to live.

We noticed a rising demand for a veterinary hospital in this area, as we have met clients who have been unable to get appointments for weeks. We wanted to construct on land that was simple to get to from around town and large enough to accommodate future growth. After considering various choices, we chose the property near the Southern Village Plaza on US Hwy 70 Bus W, just north of Grifols. We’ve planned for the hospital to be built in stages as our clientele grows. Space has been reserved for an additional hospital extension and room to add more services so we can grow with our pet families together.

About Our Hospital

We want you and your pet to be less stressed from the time you pull into the parking lot. We selected a spa-like soft green façade and a spacious front porch with park benches to provide plenty of outdoor waiting room on those gorgeous Carolina days. We have a covered walk-up window where you can pick up meals or medicines without having to enter the building. If you prefer, you are always welcome to come inside. When you walk in the front entrance, you’ll see a soothing color scheme of soft blues and greens that are proven to lower stress in animals.
Our lobby, as well as some exam rooms, have a touch of local flavor thanks to the use of retired church pews collected from the neighborhood. The ecclesiastical pew in the lobby dates from 1890! With windows in three out of five exam rooms and the bulk of the rooms where your pets would stay when dropped off, we have maximized natural light in the facility. For comprehensive oral health treatments, we feature a private surgery suite for sterile soft tissue procedures and a private dental suite with full mouth digital dental radiology. I have extensive dental experience and have completed extra dental training in order to provide Clayton residents with high-quality dental care.

We were very thoughtful when selecting the types of lodging for our patients. To make dogs feel less restricted while minimizing noise, we chose large kennel dog runs with full front tempered glass doors. We chose Quiet Cottage suites for our feline pals which are composed of warm fiberglass, include tempered glass front doors, quiet latches, and holes between cages to let them roam from cage to cage when space is available. We also put thought into our employee lounge because we’ve discovered that employees who have a relaxing space to unwind have better mental health and offer better care. A welcoming kitchen area and a private fenced yard create a relaxing outdoor space for our staff.
