Our Mission

Westminster Veterinary Hospital has been a member of AAHA (American Animal Hospital Association) since 1974 and has been serving the community of Westminster, Maryland for over 30 years.

The Westminster Veterinary Hospital was created and is owned and operated by Dr. Douglas T. Chilcoat. The hospital was opened to Westminster and the surrounding communities in 1970. This veterinary complex is located on West Main Street, at the intersection of Routes 31 & 32, down from Baugher's Restaurant and across from the Western Maryland College Golf Course. In the 1970's WVH provided veterinary care to all animals, large and small. However, as the Carroll County area grew and became more suburban, Dr. Chilcoat felt that to continue with high quality animal care, and in keeping with the hospitals philosophy, he needed to limit his practice to companion animals. With the approach of the 21st century, and the advanced technologies and rapid increases in population in the surrounding areas Dr. Chilcoat perceived the need for expanding the services at WVH to include an Emergency Trauma/Critical Care component. This major addition provides 24-hour care, 365 days a year and there is always a veterinarian and a technician on the premises. The hospital is and always has been staffed with skilled, talented, dedicated and caring people, including veterinarians, technicians and administrators. The equipment is state of the art and all staff are continuously involved in continuing education. From its origin in 1970, Dr. Chilcoat and his staff of other professionals have been attuned to the changing demographics of the community and the increased technological opportunities available in veterinary medicine. Because of this awareness, WVH is recognized as one of the most advanced facilities in Maryland and surrounding areas.
