With over 50 years of cumulative experience in veterinary medicine, Shelton’s Veterinary Hospital has been designed from the ground up with the total well-being of your pet in mind.

Three decades of local service

Dr. Benjamin F. Shelton III originally purchased our veterinary hospital on June 1st, 1985. After the practice grew popular with local pet owners over the course of several decades, Dr. Lauren S. Newman and son-in-law Dr. Jay C. Newman decided to continue the family tradition by joining the practice in the summer of 2013.

Shortly after this period of rapid expansion, which transformed our animal hospital from a 1-veterinarian practice, to a 3-veterinarian operation, we were inspired to construct a brand-new, state-of-the-art 7,100 square foot veterinary hospital. We imagined a modern facility that would seamlessly integrate new technology and the latest equipment directly into our veterinary services and care.

Today, that vision has been fulfilled, allowing us to benefit pets and their owners through every step of the pet parenting process.
