Dr. Kelley Crabtree, Dr. Curtis Bashor, Dr. Liz Sankey, and Dr. Amy Gillian
My Vet takes into consideration that I'm now retired and on a fixed budget and keeping tests to absolute necessity. I feel that I am actively part of the care team & my input is welcomed and encouraged
I have been taking my animals to Carver Street Animal Hospital for over 20 years and I have always been pleased with the knowledge and care the staff provides. They go above and beyond to treat my pets as well as they would treat their own.
Carver Street Animal Hospital is a five star rating! The Veterinarian care and staff are outstanding and always exceed our expectations with every visit! We have been a customer for 48 years and their entire team is superb!
Dr Crabtree is kind and understanding. She always has a smile on her face. I trust her to help me make important decisions regarding my cat's care.
Staff always friendly to our pet and her human parents. Easy to get appointments. Dr. Gillian is great at explaining pertinent points and has an excellent demeanor with our dog. We are very thankful to have a great vet office nearby!

We've used Craver Street for 25 years. I wouldn't go anywhere else. Everyone is knowledgeable, caring, concerned, warm, friendly. They've been with us thru the good, strange, weird and sad. I hope they are always there for us.
I have worked with animals all my life and have never met vets and staff more compassionate and knowledgeable as those at Carver Street Animal Hospital. They understand that pets are family and go above and beyond to treat each with the utmost care. I highly recommend Carver Street Animal Hospital.
Dr Crabtree is wonderful and took a lot of time and explained everything so we could understand. she made us feel like we were part of their family with both our dogs
Overall great experience, staff was quick and responsive. This was my first visit with my dog to Carver St Vet. Felt welcomed and like my pet received great care
Carver Street Animal Hospital vets have been caring for my pets for fifteen years and I have never had a negative experience. The vets are kind, extremely thorough, and very thoughtful.
Everyone at Carver Street Animal Hospital goes out of their way to make sure any pet that comes through the door is cared for. Dr. Crabtree is amazing and literally saved my dog's life. I highly respect all the staff at CSAH
The staff is very friendly and compassionate . The doctors are knowledgeable in the care of my family members (3 cats and 2 dogs). I left two other veterinarian hospitals in Durham because I did not like the staff. We are happy with Carver St. A H
Ollie LOVES Carver Street Animal Hospital. As soon as the car door is opened in the parking lot, he flies out tail wagging eager to get inside. The staff give Ollie lots of love and attention.
There are not enough superlatives to use for the care we receive continually at Carver Street. Last week we had a seriously ill pup that was treated immediately and with expertise. Dr. Crabtree and staff- unbelievable!
I have dealt with several veterinarian offices but never like I have here. Everyone is so great the listen and help you with the most consideration. They are like our extended family.
Staff & docs are ALWAYS friendly & helpful. My 1st emergency in my dogs 91/2 yrs of life I called ahead; the staff was ready when I walked in; I was put in a room in minutes. Her doc was in the treatment rm shortly after that. TK YOU!!
The staff at Carver Street Animal Hospital are among the most caring people I've ever met. They always seem excited to see my dog, Pixie and on her last wellness visit, they gave her a Christmas dress <3 Love them!
EVERYONE there treated me and my Pearl with kindness, respect, patience...I cannot say enough good things about the whole experience! I love my baby Pearl and couldn't have asked for a better experience.
Carver Street Animal staff is the most efficient, caring, knowledgeable staff I have had the pleasure of coming & interacting with. They are very caring & they treat all my babies (cats) like their own. I have always felt like family.
The team is friendly, the vets listen to my concerns and the vet techs and vets seem to really care about my cat, Wyatt. The front office folks are incredibly nice and don't just check me in and move on. They talk to me and Wyatt! (He never answers)
I have been taking my Peek-A-Boo to Carver St Vets since puppy school 13 years ago. They have always provided excellent service and directed me to specialists when needed.
I had a pet emergency the morning of a trip and they made time to squeeze me in first thing and were very helpful. They know the names of all the pets that come in there! I love this vet and find they're very reasonably priced as well.
I appreciated the fact that Dr Bashor was able to come to my home to assist in my cat, Stitch's crossing over to the rainbow bridge. It helped save my baby boy from further stress and for that I am truly grateful.
When we called for an appointment we were given a quick appointment. Our cat was very sick. Everyone was very kind and friendly. The doctors even called the next day to see how our cat was doing. We have never had this done before. Thank you.
Our dogs are treated like they are part of our family, which they are. We have been referred to less expensive, and well liked veterinarians, but will not change because of the care we receive. We love you.
My dog Sophie was completely comfortable. She didn't have to climb a table. There were treats that she could eat despite her chicken allergy. Dr. Gillian genuinely cares for her patients, and it's affordable. Thank you!
Everyone at Carver Street was very welcoming on our first visit. Dr. Crabtree was thorough and thoughtful in assessing Bella, and made a follow-up call to check and see how she was tolerating the prescribed antibiotic.
Dr Bashor is very gentle and careful with my two cats. Sam and Louie feel relaxed and comfortable in his care. Dr Bashor also listens very carefully to my concerns, and answers my questions carefully.
Carver Street Animal Hospital has been caring for all of my animal "kids"for a long time. They are always caring, kind, and supportive to both me & to my pets. The vets and staff are very knowledgeable & I trust them with keeping my pets healthy.
My cats have been clients of Carver Street for 20 years and they have always been professional, friendly, and so incredibly caring for all my kitties over the years. Because of their expertise I can enjoy many happy and healthy years with my kitties!
Once again, you guys were great!!! I called and you all were able to get Gizmo in that day...thanks for the speedy service and care!!! We are so thankful to have you all caring for Gizmo!!!
Great hospital and staff. Have used CSAH for many years and always extremely satisfied. They are definitely part of my pet's family.
We have used Carver Street for our pets since 1994, when we moved to Durham. They feel like family to me and I know they care about the health and well being of my pets.
Her Royal Highness Tinycat Jørgensen-Blumenthal needs frequent care due to diabetes. She gets much better and more responsive service than her person can get in the human health care system!
Everyone at Carver Street is professional, courteous, and friendly. You can tell they really care about pets and pet parents. We've taken our dog to Carver Street her entire life, and we'll never go anywhere else.
Getting to know Dr. Crabtree and having her to calm my uncertainties has been wonderful and I look forward to working with her and the rest of the staff.
Great place to get our pets cared for because everyone at Carver Street is not only friendly, but very knowledgeable and understanding of pet issues

You have cared for our pet household for nine years and have helped us and guided us to provide them the healthiest and happiest lives any cat could ask for.
Ken and Christine
Carver Street has been my pet's hospital/clinic for many years. I would never entertain the thought of going elsewhere. All of the doctors are great vets and good people! They all go above and beyond for my 4-legged children!
I am always so pleased when I take my pets to Carver Street Animal Hospital. The staff is caring; the vets are very compassionate and knowledgeable. Making an appointment is simple and always timely.
I was very impressed with the attention and kindness that were shown to my dog, my daughter and me. The veterinarian let my 5-year-old listen to our dog's heart. It was very sweet and so thoughtful.
Even before I had ever been to see the vet at Carver St, Susanne at the front desk took the time to talk to me on the phone when I called to make an appointment. She was so sweet and knowledgeable, and the Dr. Bashor was equally as helpful!
We have used Carver Street for 7 years. We are always treated with kindness and professionalism. Our dog was very sick with a platelet disorder that was life-threatening. Dr.Crabtree was so committed to our Gracie and saw her through this tough time
I love Carver Street Animal Hospital. I used you years ago and just recently moved back and would not even consider taking my pets anywhere else!
Carver street was recommended to me when I was dissatisfied with my previous vet. I just wanted a vet that showed true compassion towards my dog during our visit. The WHOLE staff did just that! Thank you!!!
The most compassionate vets and staff we have ever had! We truly love bringing our dogs to Carver Street Animal Hospital. We are always treated so well and we are confident that are dogs are in the best hands possible! We love them!
The time and care you gave my dog -- and me, by extension. I my concerns and questions were addressed; you treated my dog as an individual with unique needs. It means a lot that Dr. Crabtree remembers her and her quirks from one visit to the next.
My parents have always taken their dogs to Carver Street, and now I take mine. They know us, and it's like visiting old friends. At Carver Street, they care about your pet as much as you do.
Always get an appointment in a reasonable timeframe. If things are delayed, we are told why. Our dog does not cower, she feels cared-for by the staff. Explanations are detailed and understandable. Dr. Gillian calls us with updates. Very Pleased!
Kristi and Craig
Ya'll have always been awesome --- from Maddie, Jacqui, Munchi, and now our wild child, Winslow. I've called many times with questions and you have always been able to calm down this 'helicopter mom'. Thank you so much for all you do.
You guys are awesome sauce. Appointment was quickly scheduled. Quickly seen. Everyone was very kind. My vet addressed my concerns that Banfield did not. If I had a tail, I'd wag it.
They accepted our cat without appointment with grace and humor! Total exam, blood work, shots, and discussion with vet at a very reasonable rate. Will definitely pass this on to my friends who are owned by cats!
My dog had been taken to banfield vets every week for 5 to 6 weeks with NO diagnosis. A 30 minute appt at Carver Street Animal Clinic and he was started on the proper treatment and is already feeling better . Thank you guys so much.
Everyone is always professional and attentive. I have had nothing but positive experiences with all my pets. Thank you Carver Animal Hospital
I've been taking my pets to Carver Street for over 20+ years. I've had both cats and dogs. Always received excellent care. The staff always tries to meet my timeframe for appointments. I currently own a 14+ year old Yellow Lab. Top vet care!
You guys were very attentive to our needs after Piper's hospitalization. We were very pleased with the transition from our old vet and really don't think Piper was as nervous as he usually was when visiting the other vet. Thank you so much!
I have some "special" dogs. One hates other dogs, and the other isn't so sure strangers are something she wants in her life. Dr. Bashor and team are the best at handling my dogs oddities! Love them!!!
You are home for our cats and have been for nearly a decade. We could not imagine taking them anywhere else - except in after-hour emergencies, in which case we check in with you at the first possibility. We cannot say enough good things about you!
Ken and Christine
The veterinarians at CSAH are very gentle with my cat. They have been able to see us very quickly when we have had emergencies, too. They are always friendly and put us into an exam room asap (especially when there are dogs in the waiting room).
As a concerned pet owner & first time client with a dilemma first thing in the morning, you folks were very helpful and understanding. All of my options were presented in a very professional and courteous manner. Thanks for all you've done for Ivy.
Appts never rushed, staff very hands on, take time to explain/discuss fully. No immediate emphasis on high tech procedures, no overuse of pharmaceuticals. Staff bring real life experience that I have not found in other practices locally.
To name a few reasons: Compassionate, professional, and knowledgeable doctors and staff, genuinely devoted to the health and well being of all pets entrusted into their care. Lots of excellent loving care goes on at CSAH!!!!!
I have been pleased with every aspect of Sukoshi's care since I started with Carver Street Animal Hospital. I have a great relationship with all of the vets. The receptionist/appointment schedulers are always helpful and friendly.
For 30 years we've continued to see extremely high levels of professionalism and knowledge, genuine care and concern , high morals and ethics , and the staff have gone beyond the normal call of duty on multiple occasions .
I and Ms Culberson, were very impressed with Dr. Bashor who was the Vet we saw when Bud, our cat had some real problems with food consumption as well as stomach distress. He and his assistant calmed Bud and Bud responded to the compassion he felt.
I HAVE TAKEN MY TWO PETS THERE FOR YEARS.I HAVE BEEN MET WITH PROFESSIONAL COURTESY AND LOVING CARE TOWARD MY PETS AND MYSELF.!!
We've been using this vet since 1998. That's seven basset hounds, three dobermans, a miniature schnauzer and a breed I can't spell to date. You couldn't ask for or expect a more professional and caring group that these folks. We highly recommend them
Dr. Crabtree is a wonderful and caring vet. She listens and communicates very well. She does follow up phone calls, which I really appreciate. She is gentle with our cats. She goes above and beyond. The staff is great. They are friendly and care.
The only vets I have used are attached to Pet Smart, roll you in roll you out high volume, didn't see the same Dr. I know there are people who like them but I have had no one there except one Dr. referred us to Vet School.
we have been a client for over 35 years and all the staff have always been awesome!!!
Everyone is always SO sweet towards me and our pet. Always prompt and the docs follow up after every visit. I leave knowing that Fin is under the best care: every time.
This was a very difficult situation for me, bringing two not fully domesticated cats for multiple treatments, but the vet, tech and receptionist made everything seem almost easy. The cats were back to normal within an hour of returning home.
We love Dr. Bashore's comprehensive explanations of medication and treatment as well as his gentle demeanor with our dogs.
I love the atmosphere of caring/support and the fact the staff is always willing to assist with your concerns.
I have been coming to Carver St since I was 5 years old with my first dog. I am so glad this vet is still in business. I have always had great service.
From the front of house staff to the vets and vet techs, I always know that my pets and I are in the kindest and most knowledgable hands around. I'm so grateful to have a vet in my community that operates with such integrity and grace. Thank you!
Dr. Sankey is wonderful with both my cats. Explains everything beautifully and gives me all my options. The front desk staff are amazing.
For me, It is the personal care, love and expertise with a caring knowledgeable staff. They go out of the way to help with what we love. Their services with exceptional quality at a fair pricing - knocks it out of the park. Doberman approved!
We absolutely LOVE you guys. Everything from Jessica's warm welcome when we come through the door, to the amazing care that Dr. Bashor always always provides, we would never think of taking our pets anywhere else! You all are the best!

I have received the most compassionate and thorough care at Carver St than any other vet I have been to. The doctors are always informed with the latest research. I have always been given as much time as it takes for me to understand care for my pet.
My wife and I have used Carver Street for nearly 20 years. Our family of pets are important to us, so trust is important. Carver Street has earned our trust over and over. All the staff, from front to back are great. They all know us and our pets, by name. We have boarded our pets at Carver Street many times with great results. Their care is outstanding.

We've been taking our 3 dogs and 4 cats to Carver Street since we moved to Durham several years ago. The vets and the staff are just amazing. They've seen us through lots of simple procedures and the long term treatment of our diabetic cat, Calypso, who also has IBD. They've treated her so well over the years, that she starts purring as soon as her examination begins. We love Carver Street!
This note is just to let you personally know how much I appreciate the care and kindness of your dedicated staff. Dr. Crabtree was excellent to my pet Buffy and extremely helpful to me......... While making certain decisions on the care of a pet is never easy I am very happy with my decision to switch hospitals and veterinarians. I will be eternally grateful to Martha for many reasons and her recommendation of Carver Street Animal Hospital will not be forgotten.
Best regards, Will
