Veterinarian service in Henrico, Richmond, and Short Pump, VA

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. 

Wellesley AnimalsSince 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. Wellesley also has an exotic pet vet for all of our birds, reptiles, rabbits and more.

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 an 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!

Client Testimonials

At first, I was skeptical about this place. I brought my sick guinea pig and as I waited by the front desk, I felt like they were more concerned about cats/dogs. Upon meeting the doctor, he gave my guinea pig treatments and injected her with tons of fluids since she stopped eating and was very dehydrated. He asked me to check in with him every other day to make sure she was on the right path to recovery. Unfortunately, she didn't make it and I was devastated. The doctor even called me personally to make sure I was okay and talked me through everything. I also got a heartfelt sympathy card in the mail from the staff. Although I lost my best friend, I have to say that this place really does care and they also give you an approximation of your bill before they charge you and inform you of what they're actually charging you for. I would definitely recommend. Thanks Wellesley for giving me closure.
