Veterinary Hospital Services in Raleigh

Our state-of-the-art veterinary hospital located in Raleigh, North Carolina offers a wide variety of surgical procedures. This includes spays, neuters, declaws and some soft tissue surgeries.

Microchip Identification – Microchip Implants are a permanent identification implant that is used to tag your beloved pet, in case the unthinkable happens. This is highly recommended and is the best way to bring you and your pet together again, if the two of you are somehow separated. This is usually implemented at the time of spaying or neutering. However, anytime is a good time to have your Pet implanted with a Microchip if they do not currently have one.

Anesthesia – The safest available anesthetics are utilized to provide that extra margin of safety, especially for older or high-risk patients. Your pet’s vital signs are monitored while under all anesthetic procedures.

Radiology – The Purr and Bark hospital is equipped with modern state of the art x-ray equipment. It provides high quality radiographs to aid in the diagnosis of your pet’s disorders.

Dentistry – Most general dental procedures that your Pet will require can be performed at our hospital. This includes teeth cleaning, polishing, and tooth extractions. These will require anesthesia.

We attempt to be available and accommodate emergencies for the patients of The Purr and Bark Hospital. However, there are times that emergencies will need to be referred to a 24-hour Emergency Hospital. Dr. Regina will still monitor all referred cases and will be available to answer any questions.

Compassionate Euthanasia

When it’s finally time to say goodbye, the most compassionate act of kindness that we can bestow to our faithful companion is a compassionate euthanasia. Our Comfort Suite allows both you and your Pet the privacy, and time you need. An initial injection for sedation will calm your pet and allow you time to say goodbye. Then a second injection is administered and your Pet will pass peacefully on. You can have all the time you need before your pet will be transported to Faithful Friends, if you choose cremation.

If you choose private cremation, your pet’s ashes will be returned to you in a nice encased container, placed in a soft pouch. If you choose communal cremations, the ashes will not be returned to you. If you would rather personally take care of your companion yourself, you may bury your pet on your own property if legal.
