Read What Our Clients Say

    Love this place. They treat my sweet fur baby so lovingly.
    I spent over $1000 here in the first month I was with them, and it's hard to say I "loved" that. However, they kept me informed every step of the way. They were great with my dogs and both dogs ended up in perfect health in the end, even the elderly one who had stopped eating. So, I definitely loved that!
    A very nice veterinary office. With state-of-the-art equipment. They even have cold laser therapy. I found the vets that I've met there to be very kind and compassionate. Getting into the parking lot is a bit tricky as it is a shared driveway so it makes it a little tight but it's a nice big waiting area and the staff is always Pleasant. They also board and groom dogs there

    Great place for your pets to get care. Understanding techs.
    Excellent full-service multi-veterinarian clinic with comprehensive in-house diagnostic capabilities and strong affialtions with outside organizations including NCSU College of Veterinarian Medicine.
    We have consistently received top notch care here for our cat (RIP) and dog. Dr. Kipp is very compassionate and knowledgeable. She’s highly recommended!
