It is scary not to have or know all your options. I am so glad that my family veterinarian, with Dr. Doyle and the Care Center, are here to educate pet owners like myself about the availability of specialty care and 24 hour emergency care. Together, they saved Phoenix’s life and gave her back her quality of life. I was informed of all my options, given the information and details about the different procedures, and was able to ask questions as needed so I could make the right decisions for Phoenix. Dr. Doyle was patient, and educated us about the stenting procedure and recovery care. The staff was friendly and helpful. Even though they were busy, they went out of their way to accommodate us, took us back in the ICU to visit with Phoenix. They even sent us photos at night to let us know how she was doing.

More Veterinarians Choose Care.

Your family veterinarian is an expert in general wellness and preventive care. We encourage regular visits to your pet’s veterinarian to remain current on vaccinations, parasite control, and other important measures for optimum health. They are the best source of knowledge to help you care for your pet. There are times, however, when they will turn to Care Center as a healthcare partner, because we provide expertise in areas that are not part of their day-to-day services.

What’s the difference you may ask? Just like we may choose the most qualified individual to provide healthcare for our families, we also want that same level of expertise for our pets. Fortunately, a whole field of specialization has evolved where pet owners are now able to access advanced care by board-certified veterinary specialists for just about any condition or illness, similar to how you would be referred by your own family physician.

In case of emergency, we are open 24-hours a day.

Referrals can be made for care in the following medical disciplines:

More on Specialty Medicine

To become a specialist, one must obtain a four-year veterinary degree and then pursue additional training in an accredited program. This typically includes a one-year internship, followed by a two to three-year residency in a particular medical discipline. Competition to be accepted into a residency training program can be quite difficult, therefore only those with the highest academic achievement gain entry. In addition to the clinical training, a veterinarian must also publish original research in a refereed journal and pass a series of rigorous examinations to earn this designation.

According to the American Board of Veterinary Specialties, there are currently 21 AVMA-recognized veterinary specialty organizations comprising 40 distinct specialties. Some specialties only have 100 or fewer veterinarians that have earned board certification making access to specialists in some areas quite challenging. However, only some specialists work in private practice such as at Care Center. Many others work in academic and/or research settings, or even for the government protecting our food supply.
