Cobb Animal Clinic

For over 50 years Cobb Animal Clinic has offered quality veterinary care to the animals of Guilford County. We have long been recognized as one of the premier veterinary facilities in the state with a reputation for outstanding client service and patient care.

But experience is not our only asset! We continuously upgrade and enhance our facility and medical equipment so we can offer our patients the latest in technology. Our doctors and staff attend many hours of continuing education every year to add to their medical and product knowledge. Our practice focus is on preventative medical care. We offer discounted Annual Wellness programs structured to your pet's life stage and needs. We begin with puppies and kittens and continue into the senior years. We believe our job is to guide and educate our clients about pet care to enable them to maximize their pet's health and lifespan.

We welcome new clients and sincerely thank present ones for their patronage and referrals.

Referrals from our clients have enabled us to grow to employ four full time veterinarians and over 25 support staff. Our entire staff is committed to giving the very best of care to not only our patients but also to their owners. We are always here to help you with advice and information. We hold regular training seminars for our client relations and nursing staff so they are able to answer many of your general information questions.
