Dr. John H. Carr


Dr. Carr grew up around animals, having several pets and spending time on his uncle’s farm. At a very early age, he bonded with animals, often spending all day outdoors catching frogs, snakes, and turtles. He has always been passionate about caring for animals and helping their owners to be the best pet care providers they can be.

Dr. Carr started Carr Veterinary Hospital in February 1994 in Greensboro, NC. The current location in Oak Ridge, NC opened in October 2012. He is a graduate of the University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine. Prior to opening the animal hospital, he worked in small animal practices in the Greensboro area. 

He served as class president throughout veterinary school and received numerous academic and merit awards. He has special interests in surgery, internal medicine, dental care, ultrasound, and preventative care. He has actively participated in continuing education programs throughout his career in surgery, cardiology, dermatology, ultrasound, dentistry, feline diseases, behavior management, pain management, and advanced diagnostics.

Dr. Carr has been married since 1990 and has a son and a daughter ( who attends UNC-CH). He enjoys family activities, college sports (especially the University of Tennessee athletics), outdoor sports, and reading. In his free time, he enjoys travel, tennis, photography, bicycling, and golf. Dr. Carr is a member of the American Veterinary Medical Assoc., North Carolina VMA, Guilford County VMA, and the Veterinary Information Network.

He is also a member of the Nat Green Kiwanis Club, St. Paul the Apostle church and is a past member of the Advisory Board for the ArcBarks Dog Treat Company (affiliated with the ARC of Greensboro). Dr. Carr serves on the Board of Directors for the Merchants of Oak Ridge.
