Wellesley Animal Hospital is a full-service veterinary clinic. 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.
Since founding Wellesley Animal Hosptial in 2001, Doctors Mark and Kelly Gottschalk have built a team and expanded services 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. We offer pet surgical and dental 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 for 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 their people. 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!
Our animals are an extension of our family. We want only the best for them. The staff and Wellesley Animal Hospital is by far the best vet I have had in Richmond. Recently, our 12-year old dog passed away. They treated us with respect and even sent a sympathy card signed by everyone. In turn, they have a client for life. If you want the best for your pet, check out Wellesley Animal Hospital!
A great great place. I highly recommend taking your pet here. We take our dog to Mark and he is wonderful. Our friend Amy is a vet tech. here too and she's amazing with animals. In fact, everyone here is extremely helpful and caring of the animals. They take their time to make sure the animals are comfortable and want nothing more than happy, healthy pets and owners. So glad we found them!
Amazing practice! I cannot say enough about this clinic. First thing, hats off to Dr. Evan! he is an amazing doctor. He went in after a tumor on my cat's paw that another vet wanted to amputate (95% removal achieved). The willingness to save the quality of life for my pet and hopefully yours speaks volumes of the medical prowess of the veterinarians on staff here. Get your second opinion here! They are not a chop shop, price gouger and honor their commitments to your loved family members. Unbelievable bedside manner, the willingness to go the extra miles and do everything in their power is the hallmark of outstanding medicine the world over. With over 20 years being around medicine, this was an extremely impressive practice. Thank you, Dr. Evan, for buying my good friend some more quality time with my family.
