VetCor Partners with Boulevard Animal Hospital

Boulevard Animal Hospital in Shelby, North Carolina is the newest addition to the VetCor family, becoming our 299th partner practice and our 9th location in the Tar Heel State.

Boulevard Animal Hospital in Shelby, NCOriginally established in 1965, Boulevard Animal Hospital was purchased by Dr. Richard Dixon in 2012. He moved the practice from its original location into a spacious new building a few miles away which is where it remains today.

A graduate of North Carolina State University, Dr. Dixon earned his DVM degree in 1985. Although he only purchased Boulevard in 2012, he has been working at the hospital for almost 30 years. He has experience practicing both small and large animal medicine but devoted his career to small animal care.

Dr. Dixon works alongside Drs. Luke Martin and Emily Blanton. Like Dr. Dixon, Dr. Martin is a graduate of North Carolina State University. He joined Boulevard Animal Hospital shortly after earning his DVM degree and has special interests in both surgery and large animal medicine. A 2005 University of Georgia graduate, Dr. Blanton has been practicing veterinary medicine for almost 15 years. She has worked at Boulevard since 2013 and her special interests include internal medicine and dermatology.

The doctors are supported by Dr. Dixon’s wife, Meda, who doubles as the hospital manager, and a hardworking team of veterinary technicians, veterinary assistants, and receptionists. They are regularly praised for their friendly, professional demeanor.

Boulevard Animal Hospital offers its clients a wide variety of services, ranging from wellness exams and vaccinations to microchipping, boarding, and surgery. This full-service animal hospital provides care for both small and large animals.
