Alamance Veterinary Hospital

Our Mission Statement
At Alamance Veterinary Hospital, our mission is to preserve and strengthen the human-animal bond. We strive to achieve this goal through owner education and through promoting preventive medicine for healthier, longer lives for their pets.

Our promise is to provide the highest quality diagnostics and medicine for our patients in a safe, clean and loving environment while caring for their owners with unsurpassed customer service.

About Us
The way our staff carries out procedures compassionately and gives thorough client education is an accurate reflection on the type of care and customer service that our hospital has been serving to the Burlington area since 1949. Our practice has an accreditation with the American Animal Hospital Association and has maintained that status since receiving it in 2000.

We provide comprehensive preventive care, quality diagnostics, progressive anesthesia and surgical techniques for your pets, including exotic animals. The hospital is well-equipped with in-house ultrasound, and a full in-house laboratory.

    Amo Burbridge, DVM

    Dr. Amo B. Burbridge is the senior partner at Alamance Veterinary Hospital and has been part of the practice since 1998; the year of her graduation from the North Carolina State University College of Veterinary Medicine.

    Dr. Burbridge graduated in the top 10% of her veterinary school class and received the Dermatology Student of the Year Award in 1998. Her undergraduate degree is from Elon College (now Elon University). Although she is a skilled surgeon and diagnostician that enjoys seeing patients from cats and dogs to exotics and pocket pets, the most unique talent she brings to the team is her ultrasound skills.

    She has nine years of ultrasound experience and every year she attends professional conferences to gain even more expertise in this very useful diagnostic technique. Dr. Burbridge lives in Burlington with her husband, an Elon University professor, their three beautiful children, and their cat “Greenhead.”

    Sherri Small, DVM

    Dr. Sherri Small has been part of Alamance Veterinary Hospital since 2001, joining as a partner in 2002. She received an Associates degree in Medical Laboratory Technology, finished her Bachelor of Science degree in Biology at East Carolina University and then went on to earn a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from NC State University. Although Dr. Small has a compassion for all animals, felines hold a special place in her heart. She enjoys educating clients on preventive care for cats as well as on the challenges associated with treating feline diseases.

    In 2015 Dr. Small completed 130 hours of veterinary acupuncture training from the Chi Institute of Chinese Veterinary Medicine.  This qualifies her to practice as a certified veterinary acupuncturist.

    Outside of the office, she enjoys spending time with her husband and “kids”:  cats “Jackson” and “Dallas”.
