CARE Specialty Services
At CARE we have a highly trained and qualified staff of board certified specialists and veterinarians to treat your animals. Our goal is to not do what a primary care veterinarian does, but to compliment what they do. If a primary care veterinarian has a complicated or complex case, they are able to refer to one of our specialists for advanced diagnostics or surgery. We have specialists in a variety of service areas including: surgery, orthopedic surgery, internal medicine, sports medicine, rehabilitation, cardiology, ophthalmology and pain management. Our specialists are available by appointment weekdays and are always on-call for emergencies. They have all received extensive training and can handle any situation or emergency that comes to our hospital.

CARE Emergency Services
Our Emergency Department is open 24/7, 365 days a year including holidays. We are always fully staffed with technicians and veterinarians to handle any emergency, urgent or critical care situation your pet may be having. If your pet is experiencing a problem that requires specialty care our specialists are always on call. CARE Veterinary Center always has veterinarians on-site supervising all of our patients, so you can rest assured knowing your pet is being looked after and cared for at all times, day or night.
