Dr. Chelsea Casna


I grew up in Southern Maryland on the Chesapeake Bay, where I had many dogs and spent a lot of time riding horses. I’ve always been passionate about animals and considered them to be part of my family. That’s probably why I’ve wanted to be a vet since I was three!

I attended the University of Maryland and graduated with a degree in Animal Science, then graduated from the Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine and moved to the NC with my husband, who is also a veterinarian. It’s here that I found this wonderful group of people and beautiful hospital!

I enjoy making pet parents feel comfortable bringing their babies through our doors. I’m always willing to talk about any concerns and help support my clients through difficult decisions.


I take time to learn the individual personalities and quirks of all my patients, which in turn allows me to create a unique treatment plan that best fits their needs. When a patient can go home healthy and safe, and their owners are grateful, that’s when I feel best at my job.


I’m very passionate about geriatric care. I believe all our pets deserve a long, healthy life as a reward for being our faithful companions! Older pets have the sweetest stories and I love to help them feel comfortable in their later years.


After work, you’ll find me spending time and traveling with my husband, riding my horse (Morgan gelding), playing with my 4 dogs (2 Great Danes, a Pitbull, and a Maltese), or running (exercise is everything!).
