Caring Veterinarians Serving Richmond, Henrico, Short Pump, and Beyond

Wellesley Animal Hospital is a full-service veterinary hospital serving Richmond, Henrico, Short Pump, and Glen Allen. The mission of our veterinarians and staff is to provide the highest-quality medical, surgical, preventative, and dental care to dogs, cats, birds, reptiles, rabbits, rodents, and other exotic animals. And that’s exactly what Wellesley does — each and every day.

Doctors Mark and Kelly Gottschalk founded our animal hospital in 2001. Since then, Wellesley’s veterinary team and services have expanded to accommodate the needs of our growing west Richmond community. In addition to the Gottschalks, our hospital now employs three associate veterinarians, five licensed and degreed veterinary technicians (or nurses), and a variety of skilled vet support staff.

Our versatile team is proud to provide a wide range of excellent veterinary services. We offer pet wellness and preventative care, such as vaccinations and parasite control, as well as pet dentistry services, acupuncture, and laser therapy. We conduct in-house tests and screenings, utilizing our advanced diagnostic equipment and in-house laboratory. And our skilled veterinarians perform outpatient surgeries — both general and dental — in our two surgical suites.

The team at Wellesley is bound together by our love for animals, but you’ll find that we all share a compassion for people, too. We understand that when pets aren’t feeling well, it can be equally difficult on their owners — especially when they love animals as much as we do. So our entire staff takes great care to provide thoughtful comfort and care to people as well as pets.

Wellesley Animal Hospital knows just how to help pets and people find that lost spring in their step. So if you live nearby in Richmond, Henrico, Short Pump, or Glen Allen — and need a great new veterinarian — call us at 804-364-7030. Our entire team is at your service!
