Hometown Care at VCA Durant Road Animal Hospital

Here at VCA Durant Road Animal Hospital and Pet Resort, your pet's health is our top priority. We are committed to providing high-quality, professional care and genuine personal service. We also now offer doggy day care services for your pet while you are away.

We pledge to instill in our clients trust and confidence that their pets will always receive compassionate, gentle care, and the highest standard of veterinary medical service available.

At VCA Durant Road Animal Hospital, our focus is on the "prevention" side of medicine. Did you know that many diseases can be treated successfully if caught early by simple, routine wellness testing? And did you know that our pets can develop such "human" diseases as diabetes, thyroid issues and liver disease?

We also have a huge, climate controlled Pet Resort where we provide boarding, bathing, grooming and Doggie Day Care.

We are located in Raleigh, but conveniently located for those of you in Rolesville and Wake Forest as well. Call for an appointment today, our team can't wait to meet your dogs and cats.

Local Medical Issues

The most preventable disease our pets can get is heartworm disease. Did you know that heartworms are transmitted by mosquitoes? Heartworms are NOT just a canine disease - our feline friends are able to contract this disease as well. Heartworm disease is prevented by simply giving your pet heartworm prevention. Now that is even easier than EVER with Proheart 12. One injection of Proheart 12 prevents heartworms for one full year. Although there is a treatment for heartworms, it is much safer, easier and cheaper to use the monthly prevention.

We recommend that you also use your flea prevention monthly in conjunction with your heartworm prevention. Fleas have become worse in our area over the past few years due to the recent drought. It's definitely easier to prevent fleas than to deal with them after you get them. One flea can lay eggs that turn into hundreds of fleas within a day's time. Not only can they cause irritation to your pet's skin, if ingested while your pet is grooming itself, they can cause the intestinal parasite known as "tapeworms."

Strictly indoor pets are not immune from fleas or heartworms. Fleas can be brought into our homes on our socks or simply picked up by walking your pet in your front yard. Mosquitoes can get into our homes as easily, if not easier, than flies. Protect your pet's health with easy, monthly preventions. Ask our staff for the best products for your pet.
