What Our Clients Are Saying

Can not say enough good things about this clinic. They’ve done a great job of taking care of my Labrador retriever. Their work is second to none. Thank you Dr. Keller.

Joseph K.

We took our cat here late one evening and had amazing service. All of the staff were very helpful, friendly, and took wonderful care of our pet.

Ashley N.

We had to take our bulldog puppy in for some stomach issues, and they couldn’t have treated him better. He was treated in a timely fashion, considering I know my puppy was not the most serious case they were dealing with on a Sunday night. I couldn’t be happier with the services, the charges were no worse than my normal vet.

Floyd H.

Dr. Shults was great and explained everything very clearly. I loved that I could see the exam via Facetime. I also really love that I can log and view the exercises online. The whole experience was great. The one on one time with the doctor was very much appreciated.

T Perez

Dr. Keller, Dr. Shults and the staff have all been amazing; I couldn’t have asked for a better experience for my pup! She’s healing and recovering beautifully. But more than that, my (very anxious) dog isn’t afraid to go back on a regular basis for her PT, and I’ve been able to see their loving care with her as much as she seems to feel it.

Melissa W.

The level of care our dog received today was outstanding in every way. All treatments were explained fully and both the DVM and the rehab tech took great care in treating our dog. Client communication and patience with our dog was superior.

Anne L.

We have been coming for PT water treadmill sessions and electroshock therapy and everyone has been patient, helpful, and accommodating. Knowledgeable staff who makes sure we have all the facts and understand them.

Dianne H.

Staff was polite and courteous. The hospital was also very fast, and the doctor listened and considered all of my observations of my pet’s symptoms very carefully. I would recommend this veterinary emergency care to anyone in the Triangle.

Zach W.

All the staff was very friendly and accommodating. I felt they all were trying their best to make my dog feel comfortable and to help her recover from surgery. The great customer service I received is what I really appreciated. I felt like my questions were always answered.

Kristine R.

We had a great experience. We were impressed with the amount of time that was given to thoroughly evaluate our dog and also with the gentle, patient way he was examined. We’re excited to continue working with Dr Schultz to help our doggy stay comfortable and strong!

Michelle D.

I could not have asked for a better emergency care center! Dr. Yunker was thorough and took the time to explain what was going on with my puppy. I know what the next steps are and feel that she received the best care here. VERY satisfied. Also, all the staff’s patience, knowledge, and willingness to answer questions (as well as the low cost of treatment) make Quartet a five-star emergency care service.

Andrea V.

Took our Clumber Spaniel here last week because she was having problems urinating and being it was Sunday morning, her usual vet was closed. They took Piper right in, showed great empathy towards both of us, and went above and beyond in the care they provided. Thank you to all the great folks here!

Cassie W.

Everyone from beginning to end was very nice & helpful. Extremely caring people. It’s never good news when bringing in your loved one for an emergency, but the people that work here understand that and are very compassionate.

Vishal P.

No other vet in the area had fast availability, but I don’t feel like I settled at all by going here. The staff was really responsive, they were able to get my cat into surgery pretty fast and they most definitely saved his life. Feel confident going here, they’ll take care of your pet.

Nik B.

This team cares. We were scared driving there. We drove home relieved and truly cared for. If you have a pet emergency this is the place to go. Thank you team Quartet. You are the best. Angus says “thank you” too!

Jared R.

They have a very caring attitude, and compassionate team. I’ve been there a few times between my dog and cat, and they’ve always provided top notch veterinary care!
