Welcome To The  Animal Hospital of Emporia

The Animal Hospital of Emporia was opened in 1995 by Dr. Tom Grenell and Dr. Kay Lawrence. Late in 1998, the two veterinarians opened a second practice in Roanoke Rapids, N.C. Beginning that year, a number of associates helped provide care at both locations. A third partner, Dr. Renee Brantley, was added in 2001. After separating from the North Carolina business in 2014, Dr. Grenell continues to own and operate the Animal Hospital of Emporia today.

The Animal Hospital of Emporia began with a strong understanding of the importance of the bonds between our human clients and their animal companions. Our philosophy in 1995 was that our business would not be driven by money, with the idea being that if we offered a high level of veterinary care combined with excellent client services, the money would take care of itself. And that philosophy continues today.

We love what we do, and strive to provide high quality veterinary care, including preventive medicine, client education, comprehensive diagnostics, medical and surgical treatment options, plus top notch service to our clients and patients at affordable prices.
