New Vets Pets hospital to open in Pittsboro, NC


Anticipated opening is in fall of this year

Vets Pets, a North Carolina cooperative network of veterinary hospitals, has expanded with the Haw River Animal Hospital set to open in fall 2023. According to a company release,1 the hospital will be located at 40 Ramseur Rd, Pittsboro, North Carolina.

This new hospital will offer full-service veterinary care for dogs and cats in Pittsboro and the adjacent communities. It will be run under the leadership of Katie Sizer, DVM, who will co-own the practice in partnership with Vets Pets. She has been with the company for the last year.1 "I could not be more excited to be opening a veterinary hospital in this community I love so much," stated Sizer, in the release. " With the partnership of Vets Pets, I am realizing a childhood dream opening a hospital where I can provide high quality, kind care to pets and pet parents."

As an army child, Sizer grew up living various places around the world until she found a long-term home in North Carolina since 1995.1 She attended Methodist University in Fayetteville, NC, before attending veterinary school at North Carolina State, graduating in 2013. Pittsboro is where she resides with her husband, 2 children, and 3 dogs.

Both a Fear Free Certified Professional and a Certified Cat Friendly Veterinarian, Sizer specializes in pain management, dentistry, internal medicine, and low-stress animal handling. In her leisure, she enjoys hiking, canoeing, gardening, movie-watching, traveling, and spending quality time family.1

"We are excited to add Dr Sizer to our group of exceptional veterinary partners. I feel so fortunate to add another Veterinarian of Dr Sizer's talent and character to our partner team,” expressed Steve Thomas, CEO of Vets Pets.1 "Her passion for veterinary medicine, enthusiasm for leadership and "can-do" attitude is inspiring. I've really enjoyed working with her so far and look forward to more."
