About Us

We offer the most advanced veterinary medicine, focusing on the care and well-being of pets and collaborating with family veterinarians.

Our Mission

Care Center dedicates itself to recognizing the sanctity of the human-animal bond. We work towards this by creating a state-of-the-art facility that is recognized as the leader in veterinary medicine in the region. Our success is achieved by providing rewarding careers to all of our staff members, and by being a compassionate, competent and ever-present resource for our referring community and pet owners. Above all we achieve our goals best collectively, and no one person or department is more important than Care Center as a whole. This is how and why Care Center came to be, and we invite anyone who shares this vision to become a part of our success.

Our Values

Our History

  • First 24-hour Emergency and Specialty Veterinary Hospital in the Tri-state

    After working together in an after-hours emergency care facility that closed at 8am, Dr. Daniel Carey, Dr. Douglas Hoffman and Dr. Sharmila Ruparel knew that the referring community and general public had a need for a 24-hour veterinary hospital that housed not only emergency, but other specialties as well. A call to Dr. Hoffman's former classmate and Cincinnati native, Dr. Michele Muldoon, brought a board-certified surgeon to the Care Center and the four partners opened in December of 2000, as the only 24-hour emergency and critical care referral practice in the Tri-state area.

  • Dedicated to Excellent Specialty and Emergency Veterinary Care

    Relentless in our dedication to excellence, Care Center well-received by referring veterinarians and pet parents, outgrew the 6,800 square-foot facility. Care Center remodeled adding 14,000 square feet to the current facility. This provided space for advanced treatment and imaging modalities, including CT scans and radiation oncology, doubling Care Center’s capacity to treat sick patients. This was all done while remaining open 24-hours a day. That’s Care Center dedication!

  • Growing Our Services To Support Our Referring Community and Pet Families

    As Care Center added specialists and ER doctors, veterinarians from further and further away started sending patients to us. Dayton was quickly becoming a major source of referrals for Cincinnati, so in 2008, we opened the Dayton Care Center as a 24-hour emergency and critical care satellite.

    Growing Our Services To Support Our Referring Community and Pet Families

  • AAHA Accreditation

    In 2014, as part of our ongoing commitment to provide the highest quality of care and service Care Center became accredited by the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) in both our Cincinnati and Dayton facilities. Receiving both the Traditional and Referral accreditations for emergency and specialty care.

  • Exciting New Step

    Care Center’s founders took an exciting step to expand our network and resources within veterinary medicine. In 2015 Care Center joined forces with Compassion First Pet Hospitals. This affiliation gives us the opportunity to share best practices, embrace new technologies, offer new and advanced treatment offerings. We will always look for new and improved ways to bring the highest quality of medicine and service to the Tri-state area. Everyone here is dedicated to treating patients, clients and referring veterinarians with a personal touch. We’re grateful for the support we’ve received through the years, and look forward to serving the Cincinnati/Dayton markets—and possible future markets—for many years to come.
