Dr. McMahon provided care for the police dogs of Morganton Public Safety and the Burke County Sheriff’s department for 28 years. Dr. Schilkowsky is very proud to continue the tradition for these fine K-9 Officers. We provide routine health care as well as treatment for illnesses and accidents.

There are many fine K-9 officers and handlers serving our community. Pictured above is the late K-9 Pia, who we sadly lost to a very aggressive cancer. Pia was just one of our incredible police dogs. She put our community on the map by being featured in a book about working military and police dogs, K9 Commando.
