I have recently adopted a new family member into my family. She came from the animal shelter. When I got her home, I noticed she had quite a chough and a runny nose. I decided to take her to Dr. Hedrick. I have always had good service with him. I left my dog in the car while I checked her in, afraid that she might have something contagious to other dogs. We waited in the car for three hours and finally got in a room. After we got in a room, we waited,I kid you not, ANOTHER three hours. The service was exceptional, as always, but the wait was crazy. It was also a little on the expensive side just for an antibiotic shot and a nail trim (of which I was not supposed to be charged). But other than waiting and the priciness, Hedrick is one of the best, nonetheless.
Dr. Hedrick is the best vet I have come across in a very long time. I have 4 dogs, 3 cats and a ferret partially owning my hosue, and after tonight... I will never take them anywhere else. He has always been kind and attentive to my animals and you can't find better prices. He is most defiantly not that vet that comes in says 2 things to you and on to the next one. He is busy, but that is just a sign of how awesome he is, and he still manages to talk to you and give you personal time and attention. My German Shepherd was spayed at a different vet on Tuesday(4 days ago).(HUGE mistake) Tonight, as I let her out of her crate to go potty, her incision came open. Her insides were hanging out. This is at 9:30PM. I called Dr. Hedrick and was told to come in asap. He got her into surgery to fix her within 15 mins. He took great care of her and didn't charge me more than was completely reasonable, considering the time of night, plus surgery, and an overnight stay. If you are looking for a kind, attentive vet - go see Dr Hedrick at Davidson Animal Hospital in Lexington NC. You won't find better and you won't be disappointed.

I work out of town on occasion. I left my dog, Sparky, with Davidson Animal Hospital for one week and returned to find the folds in his face severely infected and irritated. I am extremely upset with Dr. Hedrick because of his lack of professionalism and attention given to my dog!
When I asked when the symptoms occurred, he was not able to tell me anything other than it came up quickly and he did not see it over the weekend. What was even more shocking is that Dr. Hedrick mentioned that I needed to test my dog for rabies!!!! Where would my healthy dog that I have had for almost a year contract rabies when the only place he has been is to Dr. Hedrick???? Then, Dr. Hedrick informed me that the breakout could be a result of the extreme heat. Since Sparky is a pug, he shouldn't be out in the extreme heat, so how did this happen? Was my pug exposed to extreme heat that could have resulted in a heat stroke???
To add insult to injury, Dr. Hedrick slapped me with a $266.50 bill for all of Sparky's ailments! Needless to say, he didn't try any type of treatment until I was there to say that I would pay the additional money! It's a scam . . . damage the dog and have the customer pay for the injury.
I've seen some of the posts here that praise Dr. Hedrick and Davidson Animal Hospital. My experience with him could have killed my family's pet. Through all of the accolades, a picture is worth a thousand words and my Sparky's face tells you how this veterinarian cares for pets!

This is a first class Animal hospital. My Boxer was in a bad accident at 9:00 pm We called and they were waiting when we got there. The dog required surgery and Dr. Hedrick did a beautiful job . The fee was much less than expectected for such excellent work . My dog is recovering and my heart felt thanks goes to Dr Hedrick and his staff.
