We know your pets are important to you. After all, they are a part of your family. That's why here at Cottonwood, "We have warm hearts for cold noses". When you visit, we will do our best to answer your questions, diagnose your pet's condition and provide the most comprehensive and cost effective solution possible.

Our mission is to practice the demanding science of veterinary medicine while maintaining a firm grasp on the art of healing.

Located just minutes from downtown Shelby on Hwy. 18 North, we are a full service veterinary hospital providing a wide range of health care services for dogs and cats. These include wellness checks and vaccinations, dental, surgical, and diagnostic procedures. We also offer boarding and carry a complete line of foods, flea, tick and heartworm products.

We hope you will find our web site informative. Please feel free to call or stop by and visit. We are looking forward to meeting you and your pet.



Here at Cottonwood Veterinary Hospital, we are concerned with your pets health and are going to remain open for business as long as our staff can stay well. Therefore starting Tuesday, March 17 we are not allowing any one except employees in the building. We are asking our clients to call from their car to check in and remain in your vehicle. One of our employees will come get your animal from you while you remain relaxing in your vehicle. If you are picking up medicine or food please also call from your vehicle and we will take payments over the phone and bring it out to you. If one of our staff members get the virus and are asked to be in quarantine we will have to close. We want to continue doing business as normal as possible during this critical time, so if you have symptoms or feel bad PLEASE DO NOT COME! Send someone else with your pet. Thank you for your support and understanding.


We apologize for any inconvenience at this time and will keep you posted on new information.

CLOSED ON SATURDAY'S until Further Notice
