Raleigh, N.C. (April 27, 2021) – Vets Pets, a North Carolina cooperative network of veterinary hospitals, announced Oak Heart Veterinary Hospital added its fourth hospital, CityVet, inside the beltline of Raleigh.
CityVet is an urban animal hospital providing comprehensive veterinary care in a fun and modern environment. CityVet opened in 2015 and has been caring for pets in downtown Raleigh ever since.
“With the addition of CityVet, we are making it easier for the community to get high-quality care and customer service at a reasonable price,” said George Ghneim, DVM, Ph.D. “We are thrilled to add CityVet to our family.”
The Oak Heart family of hospitals includes locations at South Saunders, Dixie Trail, Longview, and now CityVet. Oak Heart Veterinary Hospitals provide complete medical care, diagnostic services, comprehensive dentistry with digital radiography, boarding, doggie daycare, grooming, and training. The South Saunders location will begin to offer 24-hour emergency veterinary service starting in the late summer of this year.
“Oak Heart has come a long way in a short period,” said Steve Thomas, CEO of Vets Pets. “CityVet will help us further provide readily accessible veterinary care to the Raleigh area. We’re excited to add them to Raleigh’s Oak Hearts.”
