Put your trust in Truss Vet.

At Truss Vet, we’re reimagining the animal hospital experience and bridging a gap in care between general practices and emergency hospitals. The only way to do this was to pioneer a new category: veterinary urgent care. When you sense that something is wrong with your dog or cat, and it’s not a life-threatening emergency, come and see us. We offer same-day reservations, walk-in appointments and extended hours, open 10am to 10pm daily (closed Saturday).

Our core values are at the heart of everything we do.

Compassion

We treat every pet like it’s our own, every client like they’re our friend, and every team member like we would want to be treated.

Conscientiousness

Our standards are reflected in every choice we make, and even the smallest actions may profoundly impact others; the details matter!

Openheartedness

Directness, honesty, and empathy in communication; we care enough to have tough conversations and we handle tough conversations with care.

Accountability

Our team is the engine that changes lives; we are driven by a desire to succeed and hold each other accountable to that success.

Adaptability

Growth requires change so we value creativity, embrace new ideas, and welcome new challenges.

Positivity

We’re endlessly optimistic, we encourage collaboration, we empower and elevate each other, and we have fun doing it.

Our story.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, we watched as more than 26 million pets were adopted, and veterinary teams faced unprecedented demand. We’ve also been a part of dozens of veterinary clinics and felt like there was an opportunity to reimagine the traditional animal hospital experience. So we launched Truss Vet. Our name is a hat-tip to this idea that we’re bridging gaps in care and strengthening the Triangle community by supporting veterinary teams and pet owners alike (like a “truss” supports a bridge). We recognize that trusting us with the care of your dog or cat (a member of your family!) is a huge responsibility, and we don’t take it lightly.
