How many vets do you know that would answer their cell phone on a Sunday morning only to find a sobbing guinea pig mother on the other end? Dr. Wheelock at DAH, that's who. My piggy was having convulsions and the emergency vets in the area

I LOVED this vet when I took my pet for the first visit. The second visit..not so great. She was up to date on all vaccinations but because they did not take the time to call or wait on a fax from her previous vet , she received shots she

First, I would like to say if there were more stars to give, I would. I moved to the Charlotte area a little over a year ago with both of my children (2 rescue mutts). Being a cautious parent, it took a lot of research to find a place that would provide outstanding care to my two dogs. I remember my first visit with my large, and clumsy hound mix. He had torn his paw in my backyard during one of his daily romps with my other dog. I'll never forget the vet at this facility getting down on his belly nose-to-nose with my pathetic looking dog to make him feel more comfortable. \r\nRecently I was put in an sticky situation an hour before heading to work when I stumbled upon a stray dog in my backyard. I immediately called this clinic. They were so understanding and extremely caring for this little guy, knowing I had to work. I was floored by all the love and care they provided until I was able to pick him up from work. My hat is off to you, Dilwoth Animal hospital. To all your staff, and all your care. Thank you. You have a forever customer.

The BEST vet in Charlotte! Dr. Wheelock is one of the if NOT the best VET in town! I have never felt so at ease with the care for my dog. He was wonderful and never once made me feel like I was crazy or out of my mind! He was peace of mind for me. He made my dog feel at ease and always looked out for his best health. I truly am so thankful to him and to his staff. They went above and beyond their call of duty with me and my dog. I never once felt like I was bothering them with questions or concerns. They always got back to me and treated my dog and I with the upmost respect and care. Dr. Wheelock does what he does because of his love for animals and not the love of money. I have been to several vets in town and they will nickel and dime you to death with fees and erroneous charges....BUT not Dilworth Animal! If you love your animal like your child then take them to Dilworth Animal Hosp to see Dr. Wheelock! Hands down the best VET in Charlotte! I always will be grateful to him for what he did for my little man! One of a kind man and vet......

Words cannot express how grateful I am to the staff at this hospital. Becky was so kind and understanding. She aided my family with a wild lizard and helped us avoid a horrible experience. I will definitely return to this clinic with my dog because they were so helpful. Becky especially went above and beyond for the lizard. We will always be grateful to her for saving him.

The first few times we visited we were very impressed with the personable staff and attentive service of Dr. Wheelock and DAH and loved how convenient they were to our home. However, they were unable to properly diagnose an issue with our dog for over 3 months and prescribed multiple medications/steroids which did more harm than good.

After 3 months of concern, we took our dog to a different vet for a 2nd opinion and he was immediately diagnosed properly given consistent treatment and has shown signs of improvement, thankfully!

If only we had taken him somewhere else more experienced first our dog wouldn't have had to suffer for 3 months with a misdiagnosis. Personality wise this guy is top notch but as far as experienced staff and quality/accurate treatment for our dog we were very disappointed. Our dog would not have gotten better if we hadn't gotten a 2nd opinion and I regret that we let it go on for so long.

We have been taking our three dogs to Dilworth Animal Hospital for about a year now and we absolutely love everything about it. The staff is amazing, they always know who we are and put the dogs at ease with their kind and gentle nature(s). The facilities are always clean and never feel like a ""hospital"". Dr. Managan is great - very sweet, very knowledgeable, and even makes post-op/visit calls herself which shows just how much they all care.

My doggie, Abbe, had a multitude of heath problems before we found Dr. Wheelock. After seeing several vets in two different states, we heard of a new vet in Dilworth. Not being satisfied with our vet at the time, we decided to give Dr. Wheelock at the Dilworth Animal Hospital a try. Wow, what a great idea that was! Dr. Wheelock looked beyond the traditional things that might be the problem. He persevered until he solved the health mystery. Now after ten years of health issues my dogs is feeling better than ever. Dr. Wheelock gave my doggie her health back!

Cons: Hmmm...can't think of any.

I have to say the care by Dr. Managan was just great. She called me after the surgery to let me know exactly what had been done and to let me know how Kittay was doing. She even checked on her after hours. She called the next day after Kittay had come home to let us know the results of her test. I have to say the care was better than what I received after my surgery.

I bring all of my pets here to see Dr. Managan. She is very thorough and doesn't rush through the exam. You can ask her anything and she will give you an honest answer and help you decide whats best for your pets. She will not hesitate to give you a tutorial on how to clean out your dogs ears or trim their nails. One day I paniced after my dog had a very weird ""episode"" and I called her and left a message for her concerning my older dog. She called me back even though it was after hours and spoke with me at length about it. She is a wonderful addition to the practice and I highly reccomend her to everyone!

I have 8 year old English Bull dog named Rozee, Rozee had cancer and underwent chemotheropy at Dilwork Animal Hospital, she was a frequent visitor for 8 months. Rozee Has had a full recovery and with the help and expertise of Dr. Wheelock and his staff. Rozee is still a frequent visitor for nail trimmings, she enjoys visiting DAH and works around like she owns the place. :)\r\n\r\nI would recommend Dr. Wheelock and his team of professionals for any concerns or just a checkup for your loved family member.\r\n\r\nA must have address and phone number!! \r\n\r\nTHEY ARE THE BEST IN TOWN!!!!

Dilworth Animal Hospital is the best animal hospital in Charlotte. It is clean and the staff is friendly and accommodating - they have gotten us in within an hour of calling for emergencies with our dogs, cat, and turtle.\n\nDr. Wheelock is extremely knowledgeable and helpful, as well as truly kind and loving towards your pets. It is wonderful to have a doctor with knowledge about exotic pets, like our Red Eared Slider. We feel very fortunate to have found him so close. \n\n

My 12 year old cocker spaniel (Autumn) had a growth between her front to legs (under the skin) and it was diagnosed as cancer last September by my local vet. I was told she was not a candidate for surgical removal of the tumor because of a chronic coughing condition she has had for years. So, with that said I had prepared myself for her not to live much longer. Finally, in January of this year I felt like she was not getting worse, however, the tumor was getting larger. I started researching vets online and came across Dilworth Animal Hospital. I took her in to see Dr. Wheelock just at the right time. We basically had to make a decision that day: remove the tumor or put her down. I had a hard time making that decision because she was still a happy fun loving dog in good spirits. This massive tumor was the only real life threatening issue. I did inform Dr. Wheelock that I was told by my local vet that she was not a candidate for surgery and wanted his opinion. He felt that she was in overall good health and would probably survive the procedure. With that I put my little girl in his hands that day. Thank God!!! She survived the surgery as he said and has been doing well every since. Dr. Wheelock said that it was actually a localized cancer and would probably grow back in 6-7 months unless I chose to seek radiation treatment. Unfortunately, the cancer treatment is too expensive for me so I've just spent the time giving her extra TLC. The tumor is back like Dr. Wheelock predicted, but once again I find myself in the same situation and will be making an appt to see Dr. Wheelock very soon. I totally trust him with my baby and admire his work and companion for our non speaking friends that make life more enjoyable. Dr. Wheelock was spot on with Autumn and took care of her right away. No one knew Autumn was going to have surgery that afternoon. We were there for a second opinion only. However, it turned into an emergency and because of his quick actions my dog is alive today. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!!!

Our three-year-old Maltese had been sick on and off for months. Her prior veterinarian had given a diagnosis of a disease that is usually terminal, so nothing could be done to alleviate any of the symptoms: it was just the natural progression of the disease. Needless to say, we were horrified, but also puzzled since our dog didn't seem consistently sick. Out of desperation we decided to take her to Dr. Wheelock, who had just moved his practice into our neighborhood. We figured it couldn't hurt. He carefully examined our dog and said it was very unlikely she had that disease because she was just too healthy. He immediately had a suggestion for what could be making her sick -- a parasite -- and prescribed medicine. She was totally 100% recovered within one day of starting the medicine and has been in perfect puppy-like health ever since. Obviously, we are incredibly relieved and grateful that he took the time to listen to our long drawn out story and to take a fresh look at our dog's problems. If you're reading this, thank you so much Dr. Wheelock!!

We have a wonderful little pet rodent named Oreo. Some filter on this website won't let me write what she is, so reverse the word tar. It was flagged as ""inappropriate."" Therein was the problem when Oreo developed a massive tumor 25% of her body weight. My 9 year old was in tears offering up her birthday money to help fix Oreo. I am primarily a dog lover and thought that this small rodent type of pet would be low maintenance. Since then I've found that they are almost as personable as the dog and letting this tumor ""run its' course"" was unacceptable. Now to find a vet who would understand. Some vets I called referred me to not so local ""exotics"" specialists who qouted very scary $estimates. Finally I came across Dilworth Animal Hospital's website. I was impressed by the variety of animals that they clearly enjoy caring for. After a very encouraging phone call explaining the situation, type of pet etc. I brought Oreo to their office. What a pleasant experience! It is the best of a nice home environment with confident capable welcoming staff. I knew Oreo was in good hands. The massive tumor was removed and Oreo is back to cheering everyone up with her friendly, playful nature. Dr. Wheelock understood our dilemma with a young but not very long life span creature (3-5yrs), that had a correctible but otherwise straight downhill problem. Plus the kids' hearts being all wrapped up in the situation and he worked with us on a more reasonable cost. Better yet. I've found a wonderful new veterinarian that I look forward to bringing all of my animals to in the future. We left a wonderful vet behind when we moved here 3 years ago. Finding Dr. Wheelock here in Charlotte definitely will help us feel more settled in knowing we now have a great resource to take care of all of our pets. Thank you Dr. Wheelock and all of the staff at Dilworth Animal Hospital!!

I happened upon Dilworth Animal Hospital and the first thing I noticed was the veterinarian (Dr. Wheelock) answered his own phone when I called in a panic one day. My dog was out of pain meds and has cancer. He was kind enough to sell me a small supply of meds until I could get back to Waxhaw to her regular vet. I felt the warmth and caring of the Dr. and his staff immediately. It was the beginning of a wonderful experience for both me and my dog. We scheduled a regular appointment with Dr. Wheelock so she could get established. The visit was amazing. He spent so much time with her, getting to know her and discussing treatment options. He wrote a 3 page report card for her that covered everything we discussed. He spoke with me, not at me and made her feel like she was the only dog in the world. The outcome was a change in meds that has given her back the ability to jump in bed; she can now run and has much more energy. I am so grateful for Dr. Wheelock ? he shoots straight and really cares about the animals. If you are looking for a good veterinarian, he is your man.

Pros: Love of animals, caring, options for treatment, personal attention, atmosphere didn't scare dog

Cons: None that I have found

I have nothing but good things to say about Dr. Wheelock and the Dilworth Animal Hospital. We used to go to another animal hospital in the University area where Dr. Wheelock used to work and he was able to diagnose and treat our Akita, when no one else could figure out what was wrong with her. When we found out that he had opened his own office in Dilworth, we followed him down there and now take all our animals there, even though it's on the other side of town. He has great bedside manner with the animals and truly cares about them. He is always willing to call you and asks you to call him with any questions. Any time we have taken our dog in to be treated, he always follows up with a call at home. I feel comfortable and confident with Dr. Wheelock and would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a veterinarian.

I would highly recommend the Dilworth Animal Hospital. We used to go to another vet's office in the University Area where Dr. Wheelock previously worked. He diagnosed our dog when no one else could figure out what was wrong and she has been healthy since. I don't find the previous review on here (re: negligence) very credible -- seems completely inaccurate and very hard to believe. Dr. Wheelock is an excellent vet - I have every confidence in him. We were thrilled to find out that he opened his own office and now go to the Dilworth Animal Hospital even though it is on the other side of town. Dr. Wheelock and the staff have a great manner with the animals and he truly cares about them. He always follows up with a phone call home and I can truly say that he has been excellent with any problems our dogs have had. I would highly recommend Dr. Wheelock and the Dilworth Animal Hospital to anyone!

We are so excited to have Dr. Wheelock in the Dilworth neighborhood closer to where we live. He has provided excellent health care for our two French Bulldogs, Lilly & Sadie, since they were pups. They are now four years old. The French Bulldog is a breed with brachycephalic syndrome (their famous flat faces). This carries a number of health implications, some of which are quite serious, sometimes deadly. Others can negatively impact a dog?s quality of life, as was the case with our Frenchies? they could not easily breathe. Dr. Wheelock suggested corrective surgery. So at the time they were spayed, Dr. Wheelock surgically corrected their soft palate and nares so that now, they breathe without any labor or snorting. They are stealth!\r\n\r\nWhen Sadie tore her ACL, he referred us to an excellent orthopedic surgeon who repaired her knee. Dr. Wheelock has cared for them through food allergies, skin rashes, ear infections, bladder infections and a nasty episode involving wild mushrooms. We are especially confident in his medical expertise and the high quality of care that he and his staff provide. We know that we can call on him anytime of the day or night and that he will be there for us. We are fortunate to have Dr. Wheelock in our community.\r\n

Others can negatively impact a dog?s quality of life, as was the case with our Frenchies? they could not easily breathe. Dr. Wheelock suggested corrective surgery. So at the time they were spayed, Dr. Wheelock surgically corrected their soft palate and nares so that now, they breathe without any labor or snorting. They are stealth!\r\n\r\nWhen Sadie tore her ACL, he referred us to an excellent orthopedic surgeon who repaired her knee. Dr. Wheelock has cared for them through food allergies, skin rashes, ear infections, bladder infections and a nasty episode involving wild mushrooms. We are especially confident in his medical expertise and the high quality of care that he and his staff provide. We know that we can call on him anytime of the day or night and that he will be there for us. We are fortunate to have Dr. Wheelock in our community.\r\n

Doctor Wheelock has taken care of my animals for YEARS. \r\nCare and compassion ... coupled with honesty, focus and genuine interest.\r\n(And I appreciate that he actually honors appointment times!) \r\nHe's a good doctor and a good man.

Pros: Love and care for my pets. Respect for me and my time.

Cons: No cons.

I met Dr. Wheelock over a year ago while he was working at the Harris Blvd's Clinic and have stayed with him ever since. He is by far the best vet that I have ever worked with and I could not be more satisfied with his work. I am a breeder and I have taken him quite a few animals which he has time after time successfully treated, some required medicines others minor surgeries, and all have fully recovered. He knows his stuff and even works with exotics, and you must really love animals to work with exotics :) \r\n\r\nI am very happy to see him doing so successfully at his new own practice in Dilworth. I have recommended him to many people and I would definitely recommend him to anyone!\r\n\r\nI thank you and more importantly all my pets thank you Dr. Wheelock!\r\n\r\nChris

Pros: Caring and knowledgeable!

I have been visiting Dr. Wheelock and his wife at least twice a month for as long as we have lived here. They have an amazing new facilty! It is a full service hospital, with viewing opportunities in almost every area of expertise.\r\nHis staff is extremely professional and always leaves us with a feeling of confidence and appreciation.\r\nDr. Wheelock is one of the few veterinarians that is truly knowledgeable about exotic reptiles in the entire Charlotte area. He has seen at least 8 of our Panther chameleons. He has done whatever it took to save the lives of more than one of our little guys. He understands how expensive it is to have as many pets as we do.. and he always does whatever he can, to help us out and keep the costs down.\r\nThese guys are simply the best! I can't tell you how many times I have called Dr. Wheelock after hours or on the weekends, and they are always willing to help me!\r\nRecently, Dr.Wheelock performed a really difficult parasite removal of one of our imported chameleons. This proceedure was very involved and time consuming. Dr. wheelock did it for next to nothing. Most vets would have told us just to leave them, (it was 6 nasty little worms that burrow under the skin), Dr. Wheelock would not have it. He made sure our new cham would have a quality of life he deserved.\r\nHe is really a good man. I can't tell you how many times he has helped out out with questions, problems, or whatever seems to come up!\r\nWe have a 9 month old Cane Corso (Italian Mastiff) who likes to visit these guys on a regular basis.\r\nRoman loves to visit Dr. Wheelock, too me that speaks volumes when a 115 lb dog gets excited to go to the vet. The entire staff warmly greets Roman every time we come in!\r\nI will not see anyone else for my animals needs. It will always be Dr. Wheelock and the Dilworth Animal Hospital.\r\nWe highly recommend Dilworth Animal Hospital to everyone! Feel free to contact me if you care to discuss...\r\n\r\nKind Regards,\r\n\r\nTodd and Hannah Stinson

I was THRILLED when Dr. Wheelock informed me that he would be opening his own vet clinic. This will be the 3rd location I have followed him to. I met Dr. Wheelock 5 years ago when he was on staff at the Animal Hospital. I had a tiny pomeranian puppy that was very sick, she was in intensive care for days. Dr. Wheelock was one of the attending physicians and he took extra care with her. I was impressed with his caring manner and attention to detail, he never made me feel rushed. My pom recovered and became very ""fiesty"" ~ I realized I couldn't let just any one treat her. Only Dr. Wheelock seemed to be able to treat her without getting bit. He has a soothing way with animals. So when he left and went to Harris Blvd Vet Clinic, I started taking her there. Over the years, he has given me so much advice on how to care for her. Then, a year ago, I adopted a sickly male pom. He was my heart and joy. Dr. Wheelock also treated him. But 3 months ago, a horrible accident left him fatally injured. I was devastated. I rushed him to the closest facility (Monroe Road Animal Hospital) and prayed he would live. I collapsed in the waiting room while they treated him. I called Dr.Wheelock out of sheer desperation. AND HE CAME TO THE HOSPITAL. Just to offer moral support. He left his own clinic to come and help me cope. He was so calm and try to offer positive reassurance, but I see in his eyes that things were bad. After a sleepness night, the hospital informed me that nothing else could be done, my little baby had a broken back. I sat in the parking lot screaming in anquish as my family held on to me. I was so grief stricken that I didn't know what to do. So I called Dr.Wheelock, and he told me what I didn't want to hear, but needed to know. I could NEVER had made that decision without Dr.Wheelock's support. My baby is at peace now. Dr.Wheelock is a special vet and person, anyone would be blessed to have him treat their pets.

Pros: Very friendly staff, immaculate environment, state-of-the-art equipment.

Definitely send your pets to Dr. Matthew Wheelock! He and his staff are personable, intelligent members of the veterinarian world. My dog Copper (who is my baby), was a stray and Dr. Wheelock took the time and extra attention to care for him on our first visit, and those that have followed. A few months later, Dr Wheelock diagnosed Copper with hip dysplagia. He recommended that I take Copper to Carolina Veterinary Specialist and have an orthopedic specialist for dogs look at him. I took Copper to two specialist and they both reinforced what Dr Wheelock suggested. When it came time for surgery; I chose Dr. Wheelock to perform the FHO surgery on Copper! I chose him because Copper and I are very comfortable with him. Copper actually walked out of the surgery; which made me cry! He is a vibrant two and a half year old that doesn't have to feel pain as often because of Dr Wheelock. When we go to the Dilworth Animal Hospital for food, or appointments, he is not terrified to enter the building; in fact he feels like the animal hospital is his home too. So if my dog who has gone through a year of pain, and recovery can walk in happy and excited to enter the veterinary hospital; then any animal would be lucky to see Dr. Wheelock and his highly experienced staff members.!

I am so glad I found this veternarians office! I have a new baby bearded dragon that wasn't eating well, and after growing up with cats and dogs as pets I only had the internet with conflicting advice to go by. I took my ""baby"" to see Dr. Matthew Wheelock at Dilworth Animal Hospital and felt very welcome as soon as I walked in the door. The staff is very sweet and personable and the office looks more like a cozy house than a medical office. Dr. Wheelock was very nice and knowledgable and spent lots of time with us answering all of our questions and assuring me that we were giving correct care to our new pet. After that, he took my son and I around the office showing us all of his different pets he keeps there from chameleons to leopard geckoes. \r\nAt check out time I was a little nervous, we had been there an hour and I didn't want to see the bill (anyone who owns a pet knows how expensive things can be!) but I was pleasantly surprised!! Not only that, he told me that if I needed to come back in for the same problem in the coming weeks there would be no office visit charge....what?? Yippee! I have found my pet's vet that I have no problem driving across town to see, he clearly does his job for the right reasons - he loves animals! Thanks Dr. Wheelock!!!

Cons: absolutely nothing!
