Welcome to Animal Hospital of Onslow County

Animal Hospital of Onslow County is a well established small animal care facility that has been providing quality health care to pet owners in Jacksonville, Midway Park, and Camp Lejeune, North Carolina since 1950. Dedicated to delivering compassionate, personalized, stress free veterinary care, Animal Hospital of Onslow County treats dogs, cats, rabbits, pocket pets, rodents, birds, amphibians, and reptiles (excluding venomous snakes). Some of the many services we offer include acupuncture, dental care, in-clinic diagnostics, in-house pharmacy, surgery, and wellness visits.

We know that you have a choice about where you take your pet for veterinary care, and we would like to be your choice for your pet’s health care throughout his or her lifetime. At Animal Hospital of Onslow County, we do things a little differently from your average veterinary facility, and we think that makes us special. Our staff is friendly, respectful, knowledgeable, and we take great care to listen attentively to our clients. We strive everyday to make your visit to our hospital stress free and as productive as possible through exceptional communication.

An additional difference at Animal Hospital of Onslow County is that we place a priority on emergency cases during normal business hours. Your pet’s emergency will receive a prompt response from our staff. These cases are taken to one of our emergency examination rooms where we will work to achieve a stable condition while diagnosing your pet’s injury or illness. If your pet requires surgery, we will prepare an operating room and prep your pet for surgery. If your pet’s illness is not an emergency, but is still considered urgent, we offer walk-in urgent care services and will make sure your pet is seen by one of our veterinarians in a timely manner.

Having doctors who served in the Army Corps of Veterinarians, Animal Hospital of Onslow County understands military life, and proudly supports the military families and their pets from Camp Lejeune. We understand how continuous moves to new duty stations and long deployments can be stressful for animals as well as their owners. We will do our best to provide customized service to meet the needs of our military families and others in the communities of Hubert and Maysville.

Clinic History

Established in Jacksonville, North Carolina in 1950 by Dr. Smith, Animal Hospital of Onslow County was later purchased by Dr. Glass. In 1996, Dr. David H. Altman acquired the practice. Through hard work and the support of loyal clients, the office outgrew its original site and relocated to its current location of 296 Doctors Drive in 2006.
