Colony Park Animal Hospital has been a mainstay in Durham for more than 35 years. During this time, we’ve served the community’s veterinary needs proudly and passionately, combining quality care with compassion to promote each patient’s overall health and happiness. Our veterinarians are skilled and friendly, and they love what they do. We always strive to provide cutting-edge Durham veterinary care in a setting where pets feel loved, and owners feel informed and supported.
At Colony Park Animal Hospital, our entire team is committed to supporting the human-animal bond, and have been a strong advocate since our inception. We believe the bond between people and their companion animals provides joy, enrichment, balance and health benefits to both, and the relationship deserves the highest level of respect and compassion. Many of our veterinarians have been practicing for over a decade, which means they not only have extensive experience in their field but have established ties with patients, their owners, and the community as a whole. In fact, we’ve been continually named the Best of Durham by Durham Magazine.
We are looking to add a full-time veterinarian to our 4 doctor team. We have an onsite ultrasound specialist by appt, digital x-ray and digital dental x-ray, full lab capabilities, and all of the equipment and support needed to practice high quality veterinary medicine!
