Dr. Wilkins and pets Dr. Charlotte Kates Wilkins - Veterinarian

My name is Charlotte Kates Wilkins “Doc Charlotte” and I started a mobile clinic because I know how difficult it can be for people to find time in their schedule to bring their pets in for the care they need. With Charlotte’s Ark, your home is the waiting room, providing a convenient and stress free vet experience for you and your pet.

A little about me:
By the time I was seven years old, I knew I wanted to be a veterinarian. When an animal was hurt in my neighborhood, everyone knew that I would be the first one there to try to help. When I turned 13, I started volunteering at a veterinary practice in my town. Throughout high school I never lost sight of my dream. After graduating from high school, I earned my Bachelor’s degree at North Carolina State University (NCSU) and completed my doctorate at the College of Veterinary Medicine at NCSU. After practicing in Wilmington, NC for a few years I moved back to Winston Salem, as I’ve always considered that my “true home”. I began working as an Associate Veterinarian, in the same practice where I volunteered as a teenager, and was soon promoted to the Medical Director position.

I am also married and the happy mother of two amazing children, one dog, one cat, two ducks, one rooster, and five hermit crabs. We are constantly growing our animal family as it brings us so much joy.

I look forward to taking care of your animal family as much as I enjoy taking care of my own.
