Falls Village Veterinary Hospital
This place is amazing! I recently switched from my old vet who I've been seeing for more than 10 years. My dog was diagnosed with Kidney failure and my old vet told me nothing about it. Basically just hinted to have him euthanized. I'm so glad I found Falls Village and got a second opinion, I have met everyone there and they are great! Everyone is friendly and helpful. The vets answered all of my questions and talked to me about my dog's progression over the phone. They answered everything in great details (unlike my old vet) and gave me suggestions on what to do for my dog. They even printed out recipes for me and gave me amazing discounts on Sub Q fluids until I could do them myself. (My old vet was charging $60 each sub Q injection, Falls Village only charged me $15) plus they gave me free needles once I learned how to do it myself. Everyone there really goes above and beyond to help the pet and make sure the owners understand everything. I would HIGHLY recommend this vet.

Quail Corners Animal Hospital
Our dog has had ear infections for 3-4 years with 10-20 visits to other local vet hospital. The doctors at Quail Corners used a scope attached to an iPhone to better diagnose why our dog continued to get ear infections. They gave her a gentle sedation and did a fantastic job removing hair and wax in her ears. We were able to see pictures on their iPhone from the exam. Our dog has gone 6+ months without another ear infections. The team at Quail Corners gets an A+ for treating our Shadow with such great care and love.

Spring Forest Animal Hospital
Dr. Gore is a GREAT vet. My dogs and I had an awesome experience when we went for our routine visit. I was new to the area and had tried a couple other vets first but found what I was looking for at Spring Forest Animal Hospital. The staff was friendly & knowledgeable. I also took a tour of their boarding facility and was very impressed, I'll be boarding my dogs this spring. Thanks Dr. Gore!!

Leesville Animal Hospital
We have a mini schnauzer and have been in Raleigh almost 5 years. During this time we have been to at least 4 vets in North Raleigh. What we like most about Leesville Animal Hospital is that they never push unnecessary tests and services. The care is excellent and we use their boarding and grooming services too. We are extremely happy we found them and highly recommend them to our friends!

Quail Corners Animal Hospital
We have been long time clients at Quail Corners and I recommend them to everyone. The entire staff cares for our pets as though they were their own. The staff is wonderful - knows us by first name and, better yet, knows our dog. The doctors are all fantastic and Dr. Gjessing is absolutely amazing! Our dog loves everyone that works at Quail and they give her excellent care and tons of love.

Six Forks Animal Hospital
We had two dogs..Recently one passed. I must say that whenever we had a problem or illness with either one of our dogs Dr. Price help and diagnosed them correctly. I found her very interested in the health and well being of our pets. She was extremely sympathetic to our older dog, and to us when we had to make a decision to put thhis dog to sleep. Thank you.

Close Calls
Dr. Close is an excellent Veterinarian w/ compassion. He does house calls, which is unusual these days, but very convenient, especially for pets who can't ride in vehicles.Both of my dogs like him a great deal and feel comfortable w/ his care. I would highly recommend him!

Tips & Advices
Most 24-hour clinics do not allow owners to stay with their pets overnight. However, many do have specific visiting hours or will let owners see their pets at any point during the day. In addition, owners can call most clinics at any time for an update on their pet's well being.
  • Important phone numbers, especially those of the the veterinary clinic, the animal hospital or emergency clinic, and the poison control center
  • A book detailing pet first-aid steps
  • Copy of medical records
  • Nylon leash
  • Muzzle (only use if pet is not vomiting and has no difficulty breathing)
  • Absorbent gauze
  • Nonlatex disposable gloves
  • Scissors
  • Tweezers
  • Nail clippers
  • Digital thermometer
  • Sterile saline solution
  • Hydrogen peroxide (to induce vomiting only at the recommendation of a veterinarian
  • Milk of magnesia (to absorb poison only at the recommendation of a veterinarian)
Find a 24-hour animal hospital that provides emergency services within your area. Keep the facility's contact information in a place that's easy to locate, such as the refrigerator, address book, or smartphone. Most veterinary clinics operate on standard business hours and are not equipped to handle emergencies.
Veterinary clinics operate on a smaller scale than animal hospitals. The latter are more likely open 24 hours and provide emergency services. The former generally operate on typical office hours and only perform wellness exams and minor surgeries. Veterinary clinics also do not generally perform laboratory tests on site.
The specifics vary depending on the type of visit. For a wellness exam, bring:
  • Medical records
  • The type or brand of food the pet eats
  • Medication (including flea, tick, and heartworm medication).
If the animal needs medical treatment, the following may be helpful depending on the situation:
  • Fresh stool sample
  • Vomit sample
  • Video of the pet engaging in abnormal behavior
  • Substance the pet may have ingested
