DR. CHARLES H. WOOD, JR. opened Old Dominion Animal Hospital in 1982. He graduated from The University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine and was excited to return to Virginia and make his home in Charlottesville. Dr. Wood is a Past-President and current member of The Blue Ridge Mountains Rotary Club and is proud of his club's contributions to our community. At work, Dr. Wood focuses much of his effort on helping local animal rescue groups and foster organizations, he particularly enjoys surgery, and loves having the opportunity to know his clients and their families personally. Away from work, Dr. Wood's favorite past-time is sailing, but he also enjoys stone carving, painting, vegetable gardening, landscaping, and being a grandpa. Dr. Wood's wife is a partner at The Nook Restaurant on the Downtown Mall, so they share a keen interest in food and supporting locally owned restaurants. The Woods have two children, a daughter who is a veterinary assistant at Old Dominion and a son who is currently attending veterinary school at Virginia Tech and hopes to join the practice. The Wood family lives on a mountain in Nelson County with their Australian Shepherd Dog Merlin, their four cats: Lance, Guinevere, Precious, and Simba; and their two horses Apache and Gypsy.
