Our specialized services, state-of-the-art facilities and expert staff are second to none.

Providing Comprehensive Care

Just as your primary care physician might refer you to a specialist to address a complex medical issue, general veterinarians refer patients to us for specialized care.

With more than 30 areas of specialization, we have the expertise, technology and leading-edge facilities to diagnose and treat your animal’s specific needs.

From hemodialysis and hemoperfusion to neurology and behavioral medicine, our American Animal Hospital Association-accredited hospital offers all-inclusive care for a wide range of diseases.

30+ Specialized Services

From cardiology to MRI scans, we offer dozens of specializations and diagnostic services.

300,000+ Animals Treated

We’ve been providing unparalleled care since 1983, and we now treat over 35,000 animals each year.

Emergency Services

We know pet emergencies can be stressful and upsetting. Our experienced team is here to help with around-the-clock emergency and critical care. In the event of an emergency, call us at 919-513-6911. No referral needed.

Home to Cutting-Edge Facilities

At our facilities, we use the same high-grade technology you would find at a human hospital.

The 110,000-square foot Terry Center focuses on top-quality care for companion animals, while the Veterinary Health and Wellness Center specializes in integrative clinical services for companion animals and houses the Exotic Animal Medicine Service. Our Equine and Farm Animal Veterinary Center enhances the health of these animals through quality care and innovative research.

Our unique programs include:

Leading Research, Advancing Medicine

Our faculty and staff are dedicated to serving the community and improving lives by providing the best care possible. Their engagement in cutting-edge research means that the latest breakthroughs in veterinary medicine happen right on our campus. 

These findings lead to advancements in animal (and human) health — which our specialists and clinicians put into practice right away.

Through our Translational Research in Pain program, our faculty studies the cause of pain in animals at the molecular level to develop improvements in pain management in both animals and humans.

Meanwhile, our Equine and Farm Animal Veterinary Center is pioneering advances in medical technology — and setting new standards for equine and farm animal health.
