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.
High blood pressure in dogs may be pretty rare, affecting between .5% and 10% of dogs between the ages of 2 and 14. Secondary hypertension, which accounts for 80 percent of all hypertension cases, may be due to a variety of factors, including renal disease, hormonal fluctuation, and hyperthyroidism. #BloodPressureAwareness ...

So are bunnies!
Yes, yes they are. They’re like little sharks on the hunt for food at dawn & dusk 🙄
Especially if you need to sleep
I can certainly agree with the dawn (pre-dawn) part! LOL
