The College of Veterinary Medicine at North Carolina State University offers emergency and specialty treatment to family pets. The animal hospital provides pet owners with an array of treatment options that didn't exist in the past, like chemotherapy for a pet with cancer. Pets arrive from in-state and all across the country. Because it is a teaching hospital, the pets receive a lot of attention from the staff. Nationwide, pet owners spend an estimated $9.4 billion on pet care annually. At NCSU, radiation treatment can cost $4,000 and a kidney transplant for a cat up to $10,000.
