About Us

We are committed to promoting responsible pet ownership, preventative health care, and health-related educational opportunities for our clients. Cole Park Veterinary Hospital strives to offer excellence in veterinary care to Chapel Hill, NC, and surrounding areas.

Our History

Cole Park Veterinary Hospital started out small and has grown into a contributing resource for animal care for Chatham, Orange, and Durham Counties, NC. Great things often have humble beginnings. While Cole Park Veterinary Hospital began with two exam rooms and three full-time staff, we now have over 28 animal care professionals and 5,000 sq. ft of treatment facilities, including full boarding and grooming services.

Holistic Veterinary Care

Cole Park Veterinary Hospital provides the care and services one would expect to find in a veterinary facility, including annual exams, sick pet exams, in-house lab testing, surgeries, hospitalized care, radiology, dental cleaning, vaccinations, and boarding services. We use Antech as our reference blood laboratory with 2 daily pick-ups.

In addition to the above, more traditional professional services, Cole Park Veterinary Hospital takes pride in our offering of complementary therapies. Dr. Patricia Pagel is a certified veterinary acupuncturist, as is Dr. Michelle Droke. Complementary therapy is often an effective aid to the rehabilitation of injuries as well as chronic health conditions. Through our alternative medicinal therapies and minimally invasive procedures such as laser therapy, Cole Park Veterinary Hospital provides expert veterinary services, preventative care, and geriatric cage.

Mission Statement

Cole Park Veterinary Hospital is dedicated to serving the community by developing and supporting a close bond between people and animals.

We encourage this bonding by offering Veterinarians who practice progressive medicine with a:

  • superior and dedicated support staff,

  • compassionate and respectful atmosphere to both clients and their pets,

  • strong emphasis placed on client education and preventative medicine.

Each member of our staff is committed to the welfare of our animal friends, in both their professional and personal lives. At Cole Park Veterinary Hospital you and your pets are much more than clients, you are our friends.
