On Thursday, April 8, Dr. Dick Hay and his team at TotalBond Veterinary Hospital moved into a brand-new, modern, veterinary facility on Highway 115, less than a mile from their previous location on Griffith Street.

The 3,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility is three times the size of the original hospital, which opened in 1999. This major expansion will allow the hospital to accept more patients, increase appointment capacity, and offer new diagnostic services.

Even though the original facility was small, TotalBond has long been known for exceptional veterinary care, and Dick Hay—a Davidson alumnus— has a strong connection to the Davidson

community. After 22 years on Griffith Street, he saw a need to help even more of the dogs and cats that he and his team know and love.

“Our main goal is to provide top-notch care for our patients and do our best to keep their stress levels at a minimum,” he said.

“This expansion will let us provide inhouse hospitalization and better diagnostic testing with immediate results. Our new dental and surgery suites will allow us to expand our capabilities without referring as many cases. Overall, we can better live up to our motto, ‘Relationships Make the Difference.’”
