Dr. George Armstrong established this practice in 1944. He was a 1941 graduate of Kansas State University School of Veterinary Medicine and a native of Belmont, North Carolina. The original location of the practice facility was on Elizabeth Avenue and Cecil Street, but Dr. Armstrong was forced to relocate to this location in 1978 when the campus of Central Piedmont Community College expanded and took over his property.
Then, the practice was owned by Dr. Charles B. Williston, a 1978 graduate of Louisiana State University and a native of Oxford, Mississippi. Dr. Charles joined the practice upon graduation from veterinary school in May 1978. He became the sole owner in 1980 when Dr. Armstrong’s failing health forced him to retire. The name of the practice was unchanged, a tribute to the legacy established by its beloved founder.
In 2015 Dr. Charles and his wife, Dr. Jane, retired after 35 wonderful years as the owners and veterinarians at Armstrong Animal Clinic. Dr. David Gallagher and his wife, Dr. Marnie Gallagher, are now the current owners of Armstrong Animal Clinic. Dr. Marnie is a veterinarian at Mint Hill Animal Hospital, but she stops by Armstrong from time to time. Dr. Kat Ahern joined the Armstrong team in August 2015, having moved from rural small animal practice in Gaston Co. NC.

Drs. David Gallagher and Kat Ahern are licensed NC veterinarians, treating all types of pets.
