Do you enjoy being a veterinarian?

Do you want to practice quality medicine and enjoy educating clients about pet care?

Do you want to enjoy your job while feeling valued as a team member?

Get away from corporate stress and join a well-established, growing Inclusive, independently owned private practice. We are a highly equipped, full-service small animal hospital located in the Ballantyne area of South Charlotte. We strive to provide our clients with personable doctor-client relationships along with gold standard medical care. Located in the constantly developing suburbs of Charlotte with an excellent education system for children.

About the Hospital:

Opened in the summer of 2014, our hospital is full of music, laughter, and lots of natural sunlight in our treatment area! We have a state-of-the-art facility utilizing a fully equipped surgical suite, brand new dental equipment, surgical monitors, IV fluid pumps, digital dental and standard digital DR radiographs, full in-house laboratory equipment with IDEXX reference lab send out, and fully electronic medical records.

It’s difficult to be a veterinarian without a talented, skilled, bright team to support you. We have a full support staff to ensure our veterinarians can practice medicine – not “tech stuff.” We utilize our staff to their fullest degree to ensure our doctors spend time on medicine and client services. Currently, we are operating under a Curbside Service model and will continue to do so until the majority of the population is vaccinated. To ensure the safety of our staff and clients – all staff members wear masks while in the building, clients are not allowed in the building, and we provide video or phone calls during patient exams.

We have some amazing clients who are wonderful pet owners. We highly value the long-lasting relationships we build with every one of our clients. We build these relationships by providing great customer service alongside top-quality medicine. Our goal is to become an extension of our pet owner’s family.

Working with a motivated team and getting to assist with medicine that I believe in is the reason why I come to work every day at West Ballantyne Animal Hospital. The flow of the hospital is important to every staff member’s overall efficiency, and our team is so easy to work with. And as a newer technician, Dr. Linfante is committed to my training and growth to become a better tech, and there is never a missed opportunity to learn from him.
- Julie, Veterinary Technician

My favorite thing about being part of the West Ballantyne family is just that: we are a family. Everyone here has so much passion for what they do and love each patient as if they were their own. Dr. Linfante puts his heart into his work, and it shows, he truly wants the best for every animal that comes in and sees him. I feel as if I can better myself for the patients and continue my education to be the best technician I can be here. There are always opportunities to learn and grow and Dr. Linfante is a wonderful teacher. The staff is welcoming and warm, I felt accepted the first day I started, and it has only gotten better with time. I can see myself creating a future here, and I look forward to coming here every day I work. This is honestly one of the best environments a person could ask for!

- Tori, Veterinary Technician

I have been with WBAH since 4-2019, and I have finally found my family. The level of medicine provided by Dr. Linfante is nothing short of incredible, and he makes sure to treat your pet like they were his own! I learn something every day that I am here, and I have grown so much personally and professionally. The team I work with is phenomenal, no job is too big or too small. I cannot express how happy I am here- I am finally excited to come to work again!
