    Dustin C. Hawkins, DVM

    Dr. Hawkins was born and raised in Evans and Appling, Georgia. Like most young boys in the country, he always had his dog by his side and grew up with a love of nature and animals. While enrolled at Georgia Military College and later Augusta State University, Dr. Hawkins worked full-time as an automobile mechanic and later as a veterinary technician in Augusta.  Dr. Hawkins then went on to attend the University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine.   

    After receiving his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine, Dr. Hawkins came back to the CSRA to serve his hometown.  In March 2018, he purchased Westside Animal Hospital from the retiring Dr. Wilkes, and made it his mission to continue the clinic’s warm, family atmosphere that had always endured clients as well as to update the clinic and put the primary focus back on surgical and medical skill and innovation.

    Dr. Hawkins is a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) and Georgia Veterinary Medical Association (GVMA).  He is a member and past president of the Georgia Carolina Veterinary Medical Association  (GCVMA).  Dr. Hawkins resides in Evans with his wife and practice manager, Jennifer, their two young daughters and their 16-year-old Himalayan cat and goldendoodle, Sanford.

    Dr. Hawkins with Sequoia, a beloved member of the Hawkins family.  Sequoia was abandoned by her breeder because they found her half mask undesirable.  Dr. Hawkins took her home and she found her place in his family.  For the past eight years she has proved to be the most perfectly, imperfect companion.  She has greeted friends, licked babies, stood between her owners and strangers, and comforted her family when they needed her most.  Dogs, like Sequoia, are why Dr. Hawkins began his career in veterinary medicine and what continues to motivate him as well as our entire staff.  We all appreciate that pets are an integral part of their families, and we know how important it is to keep them healthy and happy.
