About Carolina Veterinary Specialists

Our Mission

Carolina Veterinary Specialists daytime practice provides assistance to primary care veterinarians and their clients in the diagnosis and treatment of complicated animal diseases. Our emergency pet services are available on a walk-in basis after hours and on weekends when your veterinarian is unavailable.

Who We Are

Carolina Veterinary Specialists was founded in 1998 for the purpose of providing exceptional veterinary referral services and 24-hour emergency care to the veterinarians and pet owners of Charlotte, NC.

Soon thereafter, offices were established in Greensboro, NC and Huntersville, NC. In 2006, Carolina Veterinary Specialists opened its fourth facility in Winston-Salem, NC. Our fifth office in Matthews opened in April 2011. Carolina Veterinary Specialists currently offers referral services in twelve specialty disciplines.

What Makes Carolina Veterinary Specialists Unique

  • Every one of our specialists has completed at least three years of additional training beyond veterinary school and has passed rigorous examinations to become board-certified in their respective areas of pet care specialization.
  • Our practice is also distinguished by requiring a referral from your primary care veterinarian.
  • It is our mission to provide state-of-the-art medical care with compassion and exceptional service to both our clients and referring veterinarians. We strive to serve the pet-owning public and veterinarians of the region by providing advanced-level services and procedures not generally available in the family practice.
  • It is our philosophy to serve as an extension of your primary veterinarian at those times when unique medical care is required.
