We're Not Your Average Vet!
In 2004, Dr. Todd and his family moved to Franklin and purchased an existing vet practice which is now Noah’s Ark. Then, Dr. Todd was 25 years into his career and moved to the mountains to slow down and have a smallish, slower-paced practice. Back in Raleigh, Dr. Todd had a large and devoted following of clients who liked his willingness to support raw and home cooked diets; use alternative therapies like acupuncture; minimize exposure to chemicals; prudently vaccinate; and, explain things in a very easy-to-understand manner. Some of these clients still make the trek to Franklin today!
Now, 44 years into his career, Dr. Todd’s unique approach to health and wellness is evolving and growing. Always curious, always studying…he’s always looking for the very best ways to keep your pets, and his own, at peak health.
Affordable monthly payments for preventative veterinary care and office visits here in Franklin, NC! Noah’s Ark has designed Well Plans to help you budget routine preventative veterinary care and “sick” office visit fees into affordable monthly payments.
“This is a wonderful Animal Hospital that will go out of its way to help you with your pets. They have a fantastic staff that truly cares about your little ones. We are very thankful to have found them and for all they have done for us! Thank you so much NACAH!”Jenna Barbain
“For the last 5 years since we moved here, we have trusted our son Doc to Dr. Todd and his staff. They are outstanding, courteous, respectful but most of all very knowledgeable and professional. They have an excellent facility and we are very appreciative of them.”Wayne Ratterree
“We've been driving our dog up from Atlanta since they opened because of their holistic care. Our miniature dachshund is over 16 years old and still doing well. I credit Dr. Todd and his team for her longevity and quality of life.”Melissa Schroeder
“I went out of town for a few days and left my dog, Riley, for boarding and playground time. Very affordable. He must have had a great time while he was there. He's been very tired all day. I'm sure he misses you all and the dogs he's played with. Very much recommend for boarding and veterinary. Thank you to the staff.”Geoffrey Gibson
“Our dog needed an emergency appointment while we are out of town. Everyone was so helpful. The vet really took time with us to cover our concerns. He is especially good for anyone hiking the AT with a dog as he has competed in the Alaskan Iditarod sled dog race and knows what a high performing dog needs.”Heidi Preuss
