Veterinary Services We Offer in Raleigh, NC

Exceptional veterinary care means offering every service your pet could need throughout their lifetime. Each of our services is performed with the utmost skill, compassion, and with the latest technology and equipment, too.

Why You Can Trust the Bowman Team

The entire history of Bowman Animal Hospital and Cat Clinic revolves around Dr. Gale Bowman’s vision that pets deserve the highest quality of veterinary medicine available to them. She started the practice because she wanted to deliver academic-level, top-of-the-line veterinary medicine in a private practice setting. We built our entire hospital and our team with this core value in mind. For instance, our facility accommodates just about any pet and their needs, including a separate waiting area for cats to keep them from getting anxious around unfamiliar dogs.
