Featured Case

Meet Derby! She came into the clinic with some ear trouble. We administered some medication to help resolve the issue and we provided a bandage to keep those adorable ears from flapping while she recovers. We anticipate she’ll be A-OK in a short time.

Featured Case

Meet Mittens! This sweet girl came to Urgent Vet Cary because she had gotten into some insect bait and had been vomiting for a few days.

After diagnostics, we helped her to feel better by giving some anti-nausea medication and fluids underneath the skin. We hope you feel better, Mittens.
