The veterinarian co-owners of Chowan Animal Hospital — Christian Ford, DVM, and Ruston Howell, DVM — believed the Inner Banks and Outer Banks region of eastern North Carolina needed a quality boarding facility for dogs and cats that could provide safe and comfortable accommodations in a convenient location. In 2015, they realized they were in a unique position to offer just that. First, and foremost, a boarding facility adjacent to an animal hospital would provide pet owners peace of mind; and second, the location just off Route 17 (a major corridor in eastern North Carolina), would be a ideal for vacationers to conveniently leave and pick up their pets.
Drs. Ford and Howell didn’t set out to create just another boarding facility; they wanted it to be the best it could be. After extensive research, they put together all the best features they found to create a one-of-a kind boarding experience. You can read about all the Amenities we offer on this page.
