I have a 9 year old 80 pound American Staffordshire Terrier, Tank, who is frightened of dogs and everything else, for that matter. He has been cared for at Capeside Animal Hospital since December, 2007. If he had a bad experience he wants no part of you. Capeside Animal Hospital has a successful practice and could survive without my business but the integrity of the owner and staff would not settle for Tank’s departure. The professional care that he receives is why I continue to use their services. Bobbie, the Technician Supervisor, was assigned to the task of reassuring Tank that he is safe with them. This was not for their benefit but because they recognize Tank is a 9 year old Pit Bull who needs proper health care. Tank needs his nails trimmed every 6 weeks and Bobbie has worked with him over the past year to assure him that he was safe. On his last visit Tank seemed to be back to his anxious old ways. Capeside practice and particularly Bobbie went above and beyond when Bobbie offered to come in before the office opened to attend to Tank. When a tired eye and still morning voice Bobbie brought Tank out to me in the lobby, his tail was wagging and he even took a treat. His nails looked the best they had in years.I knew at that moment my fear of good health care for my Pit Bull was gone. If I wore a hat it would be off to Bobbie and her eternal smile and patience’s for putting her 4 legged pal’s needs in front of her.
I would highly and without any hesitation or doubt recommend Capeside Animal Hospital to anyone who is looking for a group of hardworking, dedicated, compassionate, caring people - from the front desk to the veterinarians. The entire staff has shown over the years extreme compassion and exhaustive measures to help my pets at any time .I could write a book from the number of testimonials I would like to share.
One of my pets, Lady Jane Grey, a 6 year old beautiful grey and white poodle, who was a puppy mill survivor, was in very bad shape, flea and tick infested, heart worm positive, thin and sickly. After excellent care through FFAR, I adopted her and had her for a short 6 weeks when she developed breathing issues. She needed to be taken to Cary, a two and a half hour drive, for further evaluation and treatment. The problem was that she was unable to be out of the oxygen cage for more than a few minutes. The entire staff put their heads together, researched where they could find a small portable oxygen tank and built a portable oxygen container/crate to transport her. What was especially important to me was the fact that one of the staff drove with me and Lady Jane because one person was needed to watch the oxygen tank while the other drove. Needless to say, it was a very long day. When we returned back to Capeside late at night. Dr. Hanby had waited for us to return so that I could pick up my 3 dogs that had boarded for the day. This, to me was the epitome of a group that will go above and beyond the call of duty for their clients.
In brief, I have the utmost confidence in all of the staff of Capeside for the quality of care shown to my animals and me. Whether the care is routine, critical, or emergency care. They all go above the call of duty and are all available for whatever questions or concerns that I have for my pets.

"Not only a very welcoming environment, but have always felt that my little dog could not be better cared for. I'll never go anywhere else."

I currently have four dogs, one Belgian Malinios, one Rottweiler, and two Pugs, all of which I bring to Capeside for all of their veterinary needs.We have been clients of Capside Animal Hospital for five years!In the five years we have been clients of Capeside, we have experienced the most professional, personable, quality care possible. With four dogs, we frequent the vet and have been seen for surgery, dental, emergency services, preventative care, and grooming, just to name a few. The doctors, as well as the staff, have a genuine care and concern for my pets and my family, and provide the best quality care possible. Procedures are explained to me in a way in which I understand and every decision that is made by the doctors is made in the best interest of my pets. The knowledge and experience of the doctors at Capeside is far superior to that of other vet clinics, which sets them apart from the competition. At no time does any question I have go unanswered, and I even receive follow up care and phone calls regarding questions I may have based on the care I received. It’s an amazing feeling to know that my pets are not just another number and that they are just as important to the staff at Capeside as they are to me!
