History of the Hospital

South Granville Animal Hospital was founded by Lynne Elliot DVM in Oct. 1985. Lynn was born and raised in Creedmoor. Diana Dudley DVM began working with Lynne starting on day one and then bought the practice in 1990.

Meet the Doctor

Diana Dudley DVM fell in love with North Carolina when she attended Duke University in the 1970s. Although she traveled periodically after graduation to places like Australia, New Zealand and all over Africa and Europe,she kept coming back to North Carolina. She then graduated from NCSU veterinary school. In 1990, she bought South Granville animal hospital and has worked there ever since.

She has proudly mentored and worked with over 15 employees who have gone on to graduate from NCSU vet school. In fact, many now own their own veterinary hospitals.

Specializing in small animal medicine and surgery, Dr. Dudley also enjoys working on Koi which are large, very colourful carp that many people keep in man made ponds near their homes. In fact, she successfully removed several tumors off a koi in the fall of 2010.

When not at work, Dr. Dudley enjoys skiing, working in her garden ( especially her irises) and blowing glass in her studio. She and her husband are also Beekeepers and koi hobbyists. They grow blueberries and grapes as well as many other edible fruit and vegetables. Dr. Dudley is very active in the community. She has been on the animal control advisory board for over 20 years, a member of South Granville Exchange club since 1990, president of Granville Beekeepers association for 12 years and Vice President of the Granville gardeners in 2016.

She graduated from Parkview Senior High and then attended Midlothian West College of Animal Science. Her degree was in animal science which led into a veterinary technician license . Since graduation, Angie has worked as a vet tech at several veterinary hospitals in the area. Three years ago, Angie joined the South Granville Animal Hospital team and moved to Franklin county to live closer to work.

She moved to North Carolina with her older brothers--Nicholas and David, who are now both soldiers in the US army.
