Passionate Paws is Growing Again with a New Location Opening in January 2021!

Pet parents and their fur babies in South Charlotte have a new reason to celebrate with Passionate Paws Animal Hospital’s Weddington location coming soon!

WAXHAW, N.C. (January 2021) – Passionate Paws Animal Hospital grew in 2019 with an expansion and total renovation of their first location in Waxhaw. This was a huge accomplishment for owners Stephen and Dr. Susan Bonilla who opened Passionate Paws Animal Hospital in 2016. Their dedication to going above and beyond for pet parents and fur babies has paid off and resulted in an animal hospital with a passionate following from all who experience their services.

Dr. Susan Bonilla, owner and veterinarian at Passionate Paws Animal Hospital, thinks there are a few key reasons for their success, “We strive to make every encounter memorable and positive. From the first interaction
on the phone, online, social media, or in person we train every team member to treat pet parents and their fur babies in the same regard as if they are one of their family. Being fear free certified also means that every part of our hospital is designed to help keep fur babies and pet parents calm and happy.”

In addition to opening a second location, Passionate Paws Animal Hospital has also expanded their team and services that are now offered. They recently brought on two new veterinarians, Dr. Brue and Dr. Izurieta who
each have specialties that help broaden what services Passionate Paws can now offer. Specifically, Dr. Brue is the veterinarian who will be heading up the Weddington location. She is certified in Chiropractic and plans to
expand her integrative skill sets through pursuing acupuncture certification. Dr. Izurieta has a passion for surgery, animal behavior, and also will be available to see “pocket pets” such as hamsters, ferrets, rabbits, sugar gliders, and other smaller sized pets outside of the typical cats and dogs that Passionate Paws Animal Hospital previously focused on.
Stephen Bonilla, Hospital Administrator and Owner states, “We are excited to be able to expand into a new community and broaden the services we can offer with the addition of the two new veterinarians on our team.
It’s one of our key focuses to continue to grow in every way: with our services, education, our team, and locations. Each year we look at how we can build on the last and 2021 is going to be an amazing year!”
