Dr. John Bailey
Dr. John Bailey

Dr. John Bailey first joined Cary Vet Hospital in 2003 as an Associate Veterinarian for 9 years, and returned in December 2013 as the new Managing Veterinarian. He is a proud North Carolinian, born and raised in Raleigh. As a young boy, he developed a true passion for animals, often caring for many stray animals and even assisting with the birth of kittens. He soon had a home with multiple companions: cats, dogs, gerbils, hermit crabs, fish, lizards and much to his mother’s dismay, garden snakes.

He attended North Carolina State University with a major in Animal Science, graduating with Honors in 1997. He served as Chaplain for the national co-ed honor society Phi Sigma Pi. In 2001, he received his DVM from NC College of Veterinary Medicine. His special interests include internal medicine, advanced soft tissue and orthopedic surgeries. Throughout his career, Dr. Bailey has strived to provide the best medical care with compassion to his patients. He truly adores the animals that have been entrusted to his care, and values the respectful relationships he has developed with his clients; they have become his extended family. .

Dr. Bailey is married to his college sweetheart and they have 4 beautiful young children, 3 daughters and one son. They were very excited to join Cary Vet in the 2013 Cary Jaycees Christmas Parade dressed adorably as a mini-Vet, mini-Vet Tech, kitty and puppy. He has 2 rescued cats, Thor and Storm, named after some of his favorite comic book characters. His hobbies include reading, collecting comic books and going to the movies. His favorite author is James Herriot and his favorite movies include Star Wars, Harry Potter and the Lord of the Rings.
