At Western Carolina Regional Animal Hospital & Veterinary Emergency Hospital, our goal is to provide a cohesive approach to caring for the pets of Flat Rock and surrounding areas.

We are also always open – including evenings, weekends, and all holidays – for urgent and emergency care, so you can rest assured that you'll see a familiar face if the unexpected happens.

Pet-Centered Care Philosophy

Our hospital is about more than the services we offer. At Western Carolina, we create and support an environment of respect and compassion that extends beyond our veterinary staff to our patients and clients. We are committed to providing the absolute best care possible to every animal we treat.

  • Our Mission

    The veterinarians and staff of Western Carolina Regional Animal Hospital and Veterinary Emergency Hospital (WCRAH-VEH) are dedicated to providing compassionate, state-of-the-art primary and emergency care as part of your pet’s total healthcare team. Combining these full-service areas at one hospital, we provide continuity of care unique in the Western Carolinas.

    We are committed to providing the utmost professional service to our patients, their owners, and family veterinarians, treating each with compassion, integrity, dignity, and respect.

    We will continually develop trust, honesty and integrity within ourselves, between ourselves as team members and between ourselves and our clients.
