River Road Animal Hospital is aware of the vast amount of information available on the internet.  Our team has taken the time and evaluated the following sites.  We trust the information the listed websites provide to you, our client, and member of our family.


1) Veterinary Partner  This site is the owner side of the Veterinary Information Network (VIN) - an online forum and
database run by the top experts in every field of veterinary medicine all over the world. It has some of the best and most accurate information available and is easy to use and navigate. We will often provide you with a link to a certain illness or process so that you can have time to read and
digest details that can be difficult to assimilate during a visit. We love this site!

2) ASPCA Poison Control The one stop spot for information on toxic plants, foods, household items and drugs that could hurt you pet.  It's always filled with current and seasonal tips and provides the emergency number to call if you need it.

3) NCSU College of Veterinary Medicine  Everything you need to know about the hospital at the veterinary school.  They provide appointments with specialists, clinical trials and grief services.  

4) VSH   Veterinary Specialty Hospital of the Carolinas provides specialists and referral services in the Raleigh area (they have multiple locations) outside of the vet school.  Depending on what your pet needs and when, they may be another option.  They have amazing staff and doctors and also provide emergency services if you are in the Raleigh area.

5) Avian and Exotic Animal Care  By far the most specialized and experienced hospital for exotic pets.  We consult and refer to them often.

6) AVMA   The American Veterinary Medical Association's pet owner page.  Try out the Animal Health Smart Brief!

7) AAHA  Tips for pet owners and the advantages of bringing your pet to an AAHA-accredited hospital.

8) AAFCO   Obsessed with pet food or just curious as to what "by-products" actually are?  These are the people who set those standards and definitions.  No bias, just the real information.

9) ECVR and AETHW   Our local surgical referral, emergency and rehabilitation hospital in Wilmington.

10) AAFP  The definitive site for cat health.
