Our History

Hockessin Animal Hospital is located in the heart of Hockessin and has been serving the local community and surrounding area since the 1960’s.  In 2001 Hockessin Animal Hospital was purchased by Dr. Bruce Damme and merged with Windcrest Animal Hospital to provide 24 hour care and referral services to our clients.  Windcrest, which is open 24 hour a day, allows patients to receive the care they need at any time.

In 2006 with the support of the animal community we moved from a small farm house to a brand new 4,500 square foot facility in the same location.  This facility has enabled us to expand our services and the quality of care we can provide.  In this expansion we are able to provide Wellness Care, Sick Care, Dentistry, Surgery, In-House Diagnostics, Digital Radiology, Grooming, along with Cat and Dog Boarding.

With the assistance of Dr. Janet Mitchell, who has both personal and business ties to the community, we have continued to maintain a community feel while providing excellent care.  Dr. Mitchell has had ties to the Hockessin community since the 1970’s and upon graduation from the University of Pennsylvania, she decided to remain in the community.  Hockessin Animal Hospital understands the importance of being here for Hockessin and the surrounding community.   All four of the veterinarians, that practice at Hockessin Animal Hospital, live and grew up within 30 minutes of this location.  As this area continues to grow, the longevity of Hockessin Animal Hospital becomes even more important to history of the community.
