Lazy 5 Ranch Veterinary Services began operating in February 2005 when Dr. Corrie Connolly and Dr. Rebekah Julian purchased James Animal Hospital from Dr. Ted James. Both doctors, originally from the area, had worked for Dr. James for a few years. He wanted to sell his practice to a couple of young doctors with big hearts who would not only take care of his long-time clientele, but would also expand the hospital’s services and build a new facility to handle growth in Rowan County. Although Dr. James passed away in 2006 before the new clinic was complete, he did give his stamp of approval on the plans for a new hospital that the doctors had come up with on their own.  In 2014, Lazy 5 Vets was able to expand again to offer a complete full range of services for our clients including grooming, training and the largest, safest indoor boarding facility in the area.  



This facility is for the clients, the animals and our staff of highly trained veterinary technicians. Over the last 10 years, we have been able to grow and better serve our clients.  We currently have 9 full exam rooms and an indoor boarding facility for over 100 pets.
