Very responsive whenever I have a question or concern. I don’t ever feel like I’m being pushed into treatments not needed which I’ve felt like at past vet offices. Very astute in diagnosing my dog with a back issue that I feel like someone else would have missed. Highly recommend!Jillian T.Jillian T. ★★★★★ I love this vet practice so very much. I drive 40 minutes from Durham, past 1,000 other vets, just to take my dogs to Carpenter. The vets and all the support staff are so kind and compassionate. I truly appreciate the check up call the day after a sick visit. I also appreciate them not looking at me like a crazy person when I cry over bad news. They also have a lot of the machines on sight that you get referred to expensive specialty hospitals for, like X-rays and ultrasound. One of my dogs was a Covid pup and has a serious fear of the vet. They are always so kind and patient with her. I can see her starting to relax when we go to the vet.Jennifer Evans W.Jennifer Evans W. ★★★★★ Had an absolutely amazing vet experience with my two kitties. I am so happy to have found a clinic that has fear free certified doctors that are patient and kind. Definitely recommend!eleanor Z.eleanor Z. ★★★★★ Love this place.

Highly recommend!Staci L.Staci L. ★★★★★ My 2 yr old terrier mix, Layla, was in a lot of pain, but we were unable to figure out where. I was beside myself because i couldn't comfort or hold her. She's been my constant companion for a little over a year now. My shadow. My husband was able to get her a same day appointment. My son came with me because he was also very worried about her. I cannot thank you all enough for the amazing care she received. The amount of time spent discussing her diagnosis and our options for treatment was much appreciated. She's feeling 10x better. Back to her sweet spunky self! Now that we know about her condition, we know exactly what to do the next time she has a flare up. Thank you for all you do!Stephanie S.Stephanie S. ★★★★★ First time visiting...was greeted immediately by desk staff & seen fairly quickly by the assistant. It was a short wait for the Dr to come in.

We also wanted to find a new vet. It has been a few stressful weeks due to everything happening to our sweet boy but Carpenter has out did themselves. All the staff are very welcoming and extremely nice. We have spoke with two doctors and they spent a lot of time with us which I loveeeed and explained everything so clearly.

So happy we have found a new vet that we love.Katelyn L.Katelyn L. ★★★★★ This wasn’t the first vet practice I tried when I moved back to Cary, but it was the first one I felt comfortable trusting with my pets’ care. They offer a variety of services on-site, including ultrasound. The staff is communicative, providing excellent feedback and follow up after tests. My cats have experienced diabetes, IBS and cancer since I moved to Cary, so this is important. Between working in vet clinics when I was young and 30 years of having cats, Doctor Turner has been the most open, informative and reassuring veterinarian I have ever encountered when making decisions regarding the care of my animal companions when they’ve been sick or needed a decision about quality of life. That’s rare in my experience, and I highly recommend this practice.Bonnie R.Bonnie R. ★★★★★ Experience is always a pleasure. We just wish you were closer to us!
