Emergency Care Procedures

Pets can’t predict or schedule when they’ll be sick. No matter when, we’ll be there for them—and you.

Emergency Services: 24/7, 365 Days a Year

In keeping with our mission to provide superior care to pets and their parents whenever and wherever we can, CareFirst Animal Hospital has a doctor on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Our veterinarians are available to answer your urgent questions and to meet you at the animal hospital if your pet needs immediate care.

If your pet needs immediate attention:

  1. Call your most convenient CareFirst Animal Hospital location (Raleigh or Cary/Morrisville).

  2. Leave your name, phone number (with area code) and the nature of your pet’s emergency.

  3. One of our vets will be paged, and within five to eight minutes, the doctor will call you.

Unfortunately, technological glitches or other emergencies may delay response times. For that we apologize. We politely request that if you have not heard from us within 15 minutes after your placed your call, then please place another call.
