Welcome to CARE
Supporting Charlotte’s pets with board-certified specialists and emergency care.
In a way, pets are like people. Sometimes they require special, expert care – and that can happen suddenly. That’s why CARE is here. We’ve assembled the board–certified specialties your pet needs and deserves, in a setting that’s medically advanced and always compassionate. We also have 24-hour emergency services, all under one roof, for your peace of mind.
We drive ourselves to exceed your expectations while treating every pet as if he or she was our own. For referrals, we work closely with your veterinarian and, as a team, diagnose the condition and plan a course of treatment with careful consideration for quality of life.
Because our focus is on pets’ more advanced medical needs, we do not offer these services: spay and neuter services, teeth cleaning, vaccinations and immunizations and boarding. These are areas of expertise for primary veterinarians.
CARE is the pet equivalent of a human medical center.
