Welcome New Clients

We couldn’t be more pleased to welcome you to Shelton Veterinary Hospital. We’ve been serving pets from Williamston, North Carolina and from across the state of NC for decades and are prepared to bring our standard of excellent pet care directly to your next visit.

Our veterinarians and staff work diligently to provide outstanding veterinary care at competitive prices. We deeply believe that excellent care should be affordable for pet owners from across North Carolina and beyond, so we’ve designed Shelton Veterinary Hospital to be welcoming, accessible and affordable each time you visit.

If it’s your first time visiting us, we understand that visiting a new location and meeting new care providers can be stressful. That’s why we’ve designed this section to orient you with our onboarding procedure and give you a sneak peak of what you can expect when you visit us.

Unlike most local veterinary clinics, we allow walk-in appointments whenever you need to see us. We don’t want to create any barrier between pets and the care they need, so if you have a question or need, we simply encourage you to stop on by our veterinary hospital directly.

From all of us here at Shelton Veterinary Hospital, we’re thrilled that you’ve selected us as your veterinary destination of choice.
If you have any questions, feel free to call us at (252) 792-2808 or simply stop on by!

Your First Visit

Whenever you stop by for your walk-in appointment, you will be greeted with a warm smile from our dedicated receptionist. From our inception in 1985 to the present day, we always take every step we can to make sure you’re as comfortable and cared for as possible when you visit us at Shelton Veterinary Hospital. You’ll feel the difference that comes with our care from the moment you walk in. This is just one reason some local pet owners have been coming to see us for years!

Walk-in Policy

While some other veterinary practices require you to schedule each appointment in advance, we know that the needs of our clients often arise suddenly. That’s why we’re open Monday through Friday and are happy to accept walk-in appointments during our normal operating hours. If you feel that your pet is overdue for an appointment, you have a question or notice abnormal behavior or pain in your pet, we invite you to stop on by so we can see them right away.


If we have recommended a soft-tissue or orthopedic surgery for your pet, we require scheduling this type of appointment well in advance. These procedures can be more complex and require adequate preparation from our veterinarians, as well as you and your pet.

Please let our front desk know if you have an upcoming surgery scheduled so that we can be sure to book this date!
