Be very very aware that Carolina Veterinary Specialists is a business first. I was casually led down the path of surgery for my 11 year old dog, and then asked to make a five minute decision "while he's still under anesthesia" was how the doctor put it over the phone while my dog was still on the operating table. Well, to make a long story short, my dog survived surgery on friday, but died by the end of the weekend. And on top of a dead dog, they slapped me with an $8,000 bill, two to three times the estimate, refusing to budge when I complained. Yes it looks like a pet hospital, but it's very much a business.
I bet a very profitable business.
