Welcome to North Carolina's premier veterinary hospital — where innovation meets compassion.

Prioritizing Quality and Compassion

We know better than anyone that pets are family. That’s why we treat them as such. We have one of the top-rated veterinary medical complexes in the country, so veterinarians from around the Southeast and beyond refer their patients to us for unmatched care.

Since we opened our doors in 1983, we’ve provided first-rate, comprehensive care to over 300,000 animals in dozens of specialized veterinary medicine services — all while keeping a commitment to excellence at the forefront of our work.  

Areas of Specialization

Animals Treated Annually

Accredited by the American Animal Hospital Association

Training Tomorrow’s Veterinarians

We’re big believers that you can’t rush excellence. As a teaching hospital, we take caring for patients just as seriously as training the next generation of veterinarians — without ever compromising quality.

Our Doctor of Veterinary Medicine students form a fundamental part of our care teams, which are always led by a board-certified specialist. We also host one of the leading and largest training programs for veterinary specialty house officers in the world.

Because there’s teaching and training happening while your animal is with our team, you can expect a thorough, extended appointment — and you’ll rest assured that your animal is in good hands the entire time.

Operating Leading-Edge Facilities

Our staff handles cases ranging from cancer care to equine orthopedic surgery in one of our three state-of-the-art medical centers:

  • The Randall B. Terry, Jr. Companion Animal Veterinary Medical Center (Terry Center)
  • Equine and Farm Animal Veterinary Center
  • Veterinary Health and Wellness Center

110,000 Square Feet of Cutting-Edge Companion Animal Care

The Terry Center, which boasts 30 exam rooms and 10 surgery suites, is one of the largest veterinary facilities in the U.S.

Fostering a Tight-Knit Community

Our faculty, staff and students form part of a community that’s deeply dedicated to our mission of providing high-quality, innovative care — and supporting their personal and professional growth.

Whether you’re looking to formally become part of our team or simply support our work, we have plenty of opportunities to get involved.
