The History of Our Spring Lake Veterinary Clinic:
Where We Came From…

History of Manchester Animal Hospital Photo

Northgate Animal Hospital was opened by Dr. Jack Brown in 1978, bringing to life Dr. Brown’s dream of opening an animal hospital in his hometown of Fayetteville, North Carolina. He enjoys many aspects of the veterinary profession, including surgery, diagnostic technology, exotics, and avian medicine.

Dr. Brown’s son, Dr. Dale, joined the family business in 2001, bringing to the practice his interest in animal surgery, orthopedics, and pet dentistry. In 2005, they brought Dr. Jenny into the practice, adding her special interest in dermatology, dentistry, and feline internal medicine.

In 1983 Manchester Animal Hospital opened its doors at its original location on Hwy 210. In 2005 more space was needed so a new location was built on North Bragg Blvd. This location is a 6,500-square-foot state of the art facility to better serve the growing needs of our clients.

The original Northgate Animal Hospital was remodeled in 1999, resulting in a state-of-the-art, 7,500-square-foot facility.

In the Community

The Fayetteville community is special to us, having embraced our practice for nearly three decades. As a result, we try to give something back through our work with the Fayetteville Animal Protection Society and the local Animal Control Spay/Neuter Program.
