Dont take your dogs or cats here. They are a bunch of heartless inhumane people. Atleast some of them are. My little dog Pumpkin passed away yesterday because I didnt have all the money on me at the time, I offered to leave her there so

Outrageously expensive. The service was pretty good but realize this place is going to cost you a grand or more even if surgery isnt needed.

Now, onto my personal experience. I have 2.. and they both involve the same dog. I have had Tammy for quite a number of years, and she is every bit of my child as your human child is yours. She is everything to me. The first time I had to take her to CEVC was because of rat bait toxicity (ingestion of rat poison). The only reason she had ever even gotten to it was because i had just rescued a kitten that discovered how to open doors. Cabinet doors, doors to the outside, and a shed door. Well, she got into this rat poison and when I noticed that she was very lethargic and wouldn't eat or drink I immediately took her to CEVC. They did many test and did lots of blood work to try and figured out what it was (because at the time we had no idea!). It wasn't until the VERY observant vet tech whom took her outside noticed that her poop was rather green. This was the first time she had pooped since eating it and thank god they thought to check the color of her poop! Once they discovered what it was they immediately started her on the treatment they saw fit and after fighting for her life for a number of days she was able to come home.

If it wasn't for them and their knowledge then I would have lost my beautiful little girl then.

The next time I had to take her in was very recently. Tammy was having a very successful pregnancy (granted it was an oops!) after getting pregnant from a stray that I had taken in. She went into labor and her water broke around 12pm and she started seeming as if she was going to think about pushing around 2-3pm. however, by 5 pm she had not had the first puppy and after speaking to them on the phone I decided to give her another hour and see if she began pushing on her own.

When I called them back at 6:15ish they told me that I could wait a tiny bit longer or I could go ahead and bring her in. (Dogs can be in labor for quite a while and there not actually be a problem!) I opted to take a shower and then head on out (knowing I could be up all night since she was just a laboring dog and there is often a wait for more serious injuries!). I got there no later than 8pm and set her up a blanket and her own little place to labor. She pushed some and seemed rather painful and they decided to do a c-section. As they were getting ready to prep her for surgery a huge lab came in and had gotten hit by a car. The flurry of activity as they all fought to save that poor dogs life was more than I could believe, and the sympathetic shoulder they offered to the owners even now brings tears to my eyes. They felt the loss themselves, and I think that stands for something.

Anywho, back to my story! Tammy was finally prepped for surgery and long story short it was not a successful c-section. Instead, it ended up being a ruptured uterus. All the puppies were still-born and Tammy was at a HUGE risk for a horrible internal infection. The almost 2 hours that the Dr devoted to my poor Tammy ensuring that she completely cleaned her out and then putting a tube into her stomach to drain the "nasty" amazes me. Tammy received around the clock care for 3 solid days where they had her in the incubator, and had to constantly "rinse" her abdomen out. She was loved and hand fed, sometimes down to someone pulling her out and physically sitting on the floor and helping her eat.

Yet again she was fighting for her life and they never once gave up on her. She is a fighter, but they helped her fight--and once again she won!

I will never hesitate to take any of my animals there, and I even wish I could use them as my primary vet! The determination and confidence they have astounds me and I thank God every single day that they have always been there for her.

I hope that all of you never have to go to this place--only because that means that there is a problem which necessitated immediate care! :( But believe me that if you do end up there, then they are fighting just as hard as you are to keep your wonderful pet alive.

Pros: Wonderful staff, excellent care, open nights and weekends

Cons: Line!

I had to go into the emergency clinic late one night with my little baby who was seriously ill. The staff was amazing with me when I had to put my precious angel to sleep. They held my hand every step of the way and helped me make the best decision for her. and the people that aren't even my regular veterinarians sent me the sweetest sympathy card to let me know that they were thinking of me. I never want to have to go there again because it means that there is something wrong with another one of my children, but I would go there without any doubt in my head. They are amazing people and have such compassion for all that they do. I reccomend this place to ANYONE who needs emergency help.

As a rescuer and as a pet owner, I have spent a lot of time with dogs and cats and even ducks at the Cabarrus Emergency Vet Clinic. I'm sympathetic to owners who have less than ideal outcomes. But I've also been up there and seen folks who let dogs lie for hours in the yard with heatstrokes til near death, seen dogs and cats who have labored to deliver for days and are near death before someone takes her to a vet, seen pets who ate rat bait or were hit by cars days before and the owner is just now bringing it in for treatment - when it is too late. I don't know how they keep their tongues quiet. They can't work miracles. I sometimes have to step outside so I don't blast a pet owner for waiting too late to go to a vet.
This is emergency treatment, not a visit to a regular vet who has your pet's history and more time to diagnose.. They do not have a crystal ball, they do the best they can while dealing with multiple triage of pets in crisis. If they don't look busy with patients, maybe they are researching poisons, stabilizing, checking vitals, or catching a breath before the next hit-by-car.
One of my best memories is being in the treatment zone and seeing a little slip of a woman/vet tech running through the doors with a sixty-pound boxer in her arms, getting him up on the table and jumping up to do CPR to keep him breathing while they tried to save his life. Don't tell me they are not dedicated.
All doctors make mistakes. But these guys save lives. Where would you go without them? And keep in mind, they are working all hours, when they are exhausted and when families are celebrating holidays.
Two volunteers in my group have spent hours up there observing, and they agree with me - it doesn't work every time, but it is amazing what they do. They are trained, dedicated, and hardworking professionals.
Thanks for what you do, CEVC!

They diagnosed our dog, Zoe, with bone cancer after she temporarily lost use of one of her legs. The staff was great to deal with. They were compassionate and very sweet to Zoe. I'll never forget when they had to giver her fluids (on another visit) and she looked like she has saddlebags under her skin. When your pet has an emergency, this should be the first place you call.

Christmas Eve, about 9pm, my 2 year old Great Dane drank a quart of peanut oil. Yikes. We called this office and they said to bring him in. Not only did they have to check him out, but they also cleaned up after him. Oh bless their hearts, what a mess! But they took it all in stride and were very nice. The price was reasonable too.

TOOK 1YR OLD BOXER TO EMERGENCY CLINIC ON SUN. HE HAD NOT ATE FOR 2 DAYS, DEHYDRATED, & LOSING WT. RAPIDLY. DR. TOOK URINE, RUN TEST & XRAYS. THEY ASSURED US THAT IT WAS A STOMACH BLOCKAGE & HE NEEDED SURGERY IMMEDIATELY OR HE WOULD DIE. AFTER SURGERY, THEY CALLED & TOLD US THAT IT WASN'T A STOMACH BLOCKAGE, THAT IT WAS HIS SPLEEN THAT HAD TWISTED. THEY SAID THEY STRAIGHTEN HIS SPLEEN & NOTHING IN STOMACH, NO REASON TO OPEN IT. SAID GETTING BETTER CAN COME HOME NEXT AM. WHEN WE PICKED HIM UP IN THE EARLY AM WE TOLD DR WE WERE TAKING HIM FOR REGULAR VET TO EXAMINE AFTER THIS MAJOR SURGERY. THEY INSISTED ON US TAKING THERE MEDICATION TO OUR VET EVEN AFTER I TOLD THEM OUR VET WOULD GIVE HIM THE MEDICATION HE NEEDS. AFTER BRINGING HIM HOME WAITING ON OUR VET TO OPEN IT WAS OBVIOUS HE HAD NOT SLEPT, ATE, & STILL IN SEVERE PAIN TO THE POINT HE COULD NOT SIT OR LAY DOWN. HE WAS TRYING TO SLEEP STANDING SINCE HE COULDN'T LIE DOWN FOR THE PAIN. TOOK TO REGULAR VET. AND SERIOUS QUESTIONS AROUSE SUCH AS: IF SPLEEN WAS TWISTED AND IT COULD HAPPEN AGAIN WHY WAS IT NOT REMOVED? WHY WAS STOMACH NOT EXPLORED SINCE IT SHOWED AN IMPACTION.. ON BOTH SIDES OF THE INCISION IS LARGE KNOTS THAT WAS VERY DISTURBING TO OUR PHYSICIAN. NOW OUR PET IS HAVING TO GO THROUGH ADDITIONAL SURGERY TO REPAIR THE 1ST SURGERY THAT MADE THE PROBLEM WORST SINCE HE COULDN'T EVEN SIT, LAY DOWN, STILL NOT EATING OR DRINKING, OR SLEEPING AND GUESS WHAT ELSE ANOTHER VET BILL.
