Who We Are

A few words about us...

The pet parents’ choice for quality, compassionate vet care in Plano, Frisco and beyond

Have you ever visited a Plano or Frisco area 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 in the Frisco and Plano area are these days. The good news is, it doesn’t have to be that way!

At Coit Hedgcoxe Animal Hospital, we’re a Plano and Frisco area veterinarian 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 Frisco / Plano area veterinary 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 boxer got really sick over the weekend. I was worried to take her to the vet because of the corona virus. I called and made an appointment.
      The vet technician came out to my car. She was wearing, scrubs, gloves and a mask. The tech took my dog in to see Dr. Shelly.
      After an examination Dr Shelly called me in my car and prescribed some meds. My boxer is already feeling better.
      Thank you Dr Shelly!

      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

      I’m so thankful for all the staff. Tomorrow Chad is coming to my car to get Pig for his kennel cough and ears cleaned. My visa is on file so during this time of coronavirus I don’t put myself or anyone else at risk. Thank you staff.
