Practice as a Veterinary Technician with a team of experts

There is a reason why we chose the name “Animal Ark of Elkin” for our veterinary hospital. It is because we set out to help all of God’s creatures to the best of our ability. Our veterinary services are available for dogs, cats, birds, small pocket pets, and some reptiles. We have specialized services for our avian and poultry family members.

Our veterinary hospital is led by Dr. Richard Brinegar. He earned his Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine from North Carolina State University. He practiced in Winston-Salem and Mount Airy before returning to his native town of Elkin, North Carolina. He and his wife, Ava, have three sons. Dr. Brinegar is a member of the Association of Avian Veterinarians and the American and North Carolina Veterinary Medical Associations. He serves his community in several capacities, including as a member of the Elkin City School Board of Education.

Together, our team provides the ultimate in veterinary services with compassion for your pet and for you. We are animal lovers who understand animal lovers and the special pets that enrich their lives.
