Oak Heart Veterinary Hospital to Offer 24-Hour Emergency Services

Raleigh, NC (October 7, 2020) – Vets Pets, a North Carolina cooperative network of veterinary hospitals, announced Oak Heart Veterinary Hospital at South Saunders will offer 24-hour emergency veterinary service starting in the summer of 2021.

The South Saunders facility is the largest of three Oak Heart practices located inside the beltline of Raleigh between I40 and downtown. Along with the rest of downtown Raleigh, the hospital has seen tremendous growth in the past year. 

“Our flagship hospital at South Saunders has become a landmark for this area,” said George Ghneim, DVM, Ph.D. “We want to provide really high-quality veterinary care and customer service to the area. Adding 24-hour emergency services gives the local community something that wasn’t readily available.”

In addition to 24/7/365 emergency and critical care, Oak Heart Veterinary Hospitals currently offer comprehensive medical care, diagnostic services, comprehensive dentistry with digital radiography, boarding, doggie daycare, grooming and training.

“More and more clients want and expect exceptional care for their pet family,” said Steve Thomas, CEO of Vets Pets. “We’ve seen 24-hour hospitals as a huge step to meet these needs. We are excited to add this service to Raleigh’s Oak Hearts.”
