About NC State University, College of Veterinary Medicine
The NC State Veterinary Hospital is an integrated health care center for companion, equine and farm animals. We exist to further the teaching mission of the NC State College of Veterinary Medicine and to provide state-of-the-art patient care. More than 20,000 patients are diagnosed and treated annually by the Veterinary Hospital.
Just as your own primary care physician may feel the need to refer you to the care of a specialist from time to time, your Primary Veterinarian may feel your pet needs a specialty hospital to help diagnose or treat a complicated medical problem.
Although the time you spend with us might be a bit longer than visiting a regular veterinary clinic, your pet will be seen by a veterinary team with a great amount of collective knowledge and expertise. You should expect that our veterinary students will be an integral part of the care of your pet, but a veterinarian will always be the one to treat your animal or perform surgery.
