Our services.

BluePearl Cary is a specialty and emergency hospital with a mission to provide expert, collaborative, compassionate care to sick and injured pets 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. We work in partnership with primary care veterinarians who refer pets who need specialized diagnostics, treatments or procedures much as a doctor would refer you or a family member to a specialist to receive treatment for a specific illness or injury.

Our goal is to provide the highest quality veterinary care possible by acting as an extension of your primary veterinarian. Our board-certified specialists communicate with you and your veterinarian every step of the way from diagnosis to treatment to aftercare.

24/7 Emergency Medicine

Our veterinary emergency team sees a wide variety of medical problems ranging from minor infections to life-threatening trauma. Among the more common problems treated by our emergency doctors are vomiting/diarrhea, urethral obstruction, toxic ingestion/exposure, trauma, respiratory distress, snakebites, heatstroke and end-of-life care.

As with human emergency rooms, the most life-threatening cases are triaged first. Our veterinary team will evaluate patients when they arrive to collect vital signs prior to an examination by one of our emergency doctors. There may be times when more stable patients may need to wait so critical patients can be stabilized. Please know that every patient is important to us. We will take all the necessary steps to ensure all patients receive the care they need.

Critical Care

Critical care patients often come to BluePearl due to trauma, the development of an acute life-threatening illness, or immediately following a major surgery. The critical care service carefully evaluates each patient and creates a custom monitoring plan, measuring variables such as blood gas analyses, pulse oximetry, ECG, and/or blood pressure (non-invasive or direct), among others. Our doctors work tirelessly to treat pets with critical conditions like sepsis, respiratory distress and more.

Dentistry & Oral Surgery

Periodontal disease is the most common issue affecting our pet cats and dogs. We know that severe dental disease issues result in chronic inflammation and infections that can result in discomfort for our patients and can decrease their quality of life.

Diagnostic Imaging

Using advanced imaging modalities and services, our radiology department’s goal is to provide high-quality diagnostic images and interactive image interpretation that make a difference in patient care and outcomes, and to foster this ideal within the veterinary community.

Internal Medicine

Our board-certified internists and their teams have extensive experience dealing with complex and challenging cases involving the endocrine, gastrointestinal, urinary and hematologic systems. Typically, pets are referred to our internal medicine services with problems that are hard to define and involve multiple body systems. GI disease, respiratory diseases, complicated endocrine diseases as well as diseases of the liver, kidneys and lower urinary tract are among the most prevalent cases seen by our internists.

Neurology & Neurosurgery

Our beloved pet companions can be affected by many types of neurological disorders. These may be congenital, genetic or acquired diseases and can affect pets of any age or breed. Our board-certified veterinary neurologist is here to work together with you and your primary care veterinarian to diagnose and treat neurologic problems your pet might experience.

Medical & Radiation Oncology

Cancer in pets can occur in many different forms, just as it can in humans. Although humans and animals are biologically similar, there is a difference in the goals of the treatment of cancer. For pets, while remission is often sought, the overriding goal of treatment is to preserve quality of life at the highest possible level. Our oncologists treat many types of cancer using a variety of treatments and procedures to give cats, dogs and other small pets the happiest, healthiest life possible.


Our board-certified surgeons are skilled in all aspects of surgery for pets, including minimally invasive surgery (laparoscopy, thoracoscopy and arthroscopy), orthopedic surgery and joint disease, trauma and wound management, thoracic, gastrointestinal, oncologic, neurologic and reconstructive surgery.
