The Animal Hospital at Reems Creek got its start in June of 2003 when Dr. Ryan Hammonds purchased an existing small animal practice. Through the years we have added innovative and important diagnostic and therapeutic options that enable us to offer the highest level of care. Our commitment to providing the best available veterinary medicine is, and will continue to be, our guiding principle. We look forward to continuing to learn, improve, and innovate in the field of veterinary medicine.
Dr. Ryan Hammonds was born and raised in Asheboro, NC and graduated from UNC-Chapel Hill with honors in 1991. He went on to receive his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine Degree (Cum Laude) at the North Carolina State University College of Veterinary Medicine.
Dr. Randy Nehlig was born and raised in Chalmette, LA - a small town outside of New Orleans. He performed undergraduate work at Louisiana State University before attending the LSU School of Veterinary Medicine, earning his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine in June of 2006.
Dr. Danielle Cain is originally from Long Island, NY where she grew up riding horses, rehabilitating wild animals with her family, and fostering stray dogs and cats. She completed a bachelor's degree in biology at the University of Delaware with a focus in genetics and the aim of researching reproduction in endangered animals. While working as a veterinary technician she fell in love with the profession and decided to pursue a career in veterinary medicine at North Carolina State University.
We can make the diagnosis; we can recommend treatments; we can prescribe medications and perform surgeries. But if we do not listen, communicate, understand, and connect with our clients, then we have not achieved our practice goals. Our caring, experienced and compassionate staff members are here to care for the animals AND the humans that love them.
