Who We Are

A few words about us...

Have you ever visited a vet that didn’t put your pet first? A place where appointments were rushed, animals were treated like numbers and the staff was as cold as the overall atmosphere? Sadly, this is how many clinics are these days. The good news is, it doesn’t have to be that way!

At Coit Hedgcoxe Animal Hospital, a Plano veterinarian, we’re on a mission. We want visits with us to be something you and your pet actually look forward to. That’s why we always go out of our way to make our clients and patients feel comfortable and right at home.

For you, that means warm greetings, friendly conversation and personal attention. For your pet, it’s familiar faces, soft music, tasty treats and always being handled with a gentle, reassuring touch.

These are just a few of the things that set our practice apart from others in the Plano and Frisco area. Couple this with our comprehensive services and innovative treatment options and you’ve got the perfect formula for a long, healthy life.

Want to know why so many local pet parents call us their trusted partner? Why not experience it for yourself? Call or stop by our Plano and Frisco area hospital today. We can’t wait to meet you!

      My dogs and cats don’t go anywhere else but to see Dr Michalk. It’s been over 20 years now and I seriously feel as though we’re all family. Shawna once said about Chad, “he doesn’t speak people. Only animal.” That’s how I feel about the whole staff

      Dr. Michalk is very knowledgeable with many years of experience and has a great bedside manner with her clients and their owners! She takes her time to examine, evaluate and assess your fur baby and explains what is or could be going on with your pet. She always throughly explains her plan of care. There are many veterinarians in Texas but only one Dr. Shelley Michalk who gives the best veterinary care!!! This is why me & my mom drive from Austin to Plano...just to receive her expertise and loving veterinary care!!! Thank you Dr. Michalk for all that you do for each of your clients and their owners!��
