Dr. Don Hoover - Veterinarian


Dr. Don Hoover has been the owner and medical director of Westside Animal Hospital since moving to Durham in 1992.

He attended North Carolina State University in Raleigh and received his BS in Animal Science in 1985. He was awarded his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from North Carolina State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 1989. Dr. Hoover has a special interest in dentistry and oral surgery. He is a Fellow of the Academy of Veterinary Dentistry (AVD). Fellows in the AVD have had additional training in veterinary dentistry and have passed a credentialing process and examination to achieve Fellow status.

In his spare time, he enjoys cycling and fishing, as well as spending time with his wife, seven kids, and his two dogs, Daisy (pictured here) and Pickle.

*Dr. Hoover no longer practices general veterinary medicine, as his focus is now advanced dentistry at our sister practice, The Veterinary Dental Clinic of North Carolina (VDCNC).
