Small Animal Services

The NC State Veterinary Hospital’s small animal hospital and wellness center is home to a wide range of veterinary specialty services, all staffed by board-certified specialists, residents and interns, and supported by certified veterinary technicians. Having a large number of specialists on one campus allows us to offer the most advanced diagnostic and treatment options to our animal patients including cats, dogs, birds, and exotics.

We are primarily a specialty referral and emergency center and only offer general practice for Avian and Exotic animals.

The VH has two facilities that are here to serve you! Our specialty referral services are located in the Randall B. Terry, Jr. Companion Animal Veterinary Medical Center. Integrative care services for companion animals, and avian and exotic species medicine are located at the Veterinary Health and Wellness Center. A few services at the Veterinary Health and Wellness Center are open to the public and do not need a referral.
