Based in Madison, NC, Uncommon Creatures is a mobile zoo and aquarium only veterinary practice established by Dr. Sam Young and proudly serving clients throughout North Carolina.

Dr. Sam Young


Dr. Sam Young is a 2011 graduate of NC State College of Veterinary Medicine.  He previously earned an undergraduate degree (BS in Zoology) at NCSU in 2005.  Following veterinary school, Dr. Sam interned in wildlife medicine at Tufts Cumming’s School of Veterinary Medicine for 1 year before returning to NC to establish Uncommon Creatures Mobile Veterinary Services (UCMVS) in 2013.  Since then, UCMVS has taken Dr. Sam all over NC to meet and treat all sorts of exotic animals (and some really great people) as well as earn him contract positions with the Greensboro Science Center, SeaLife Aquarium, and Discovery Place.

Because of the expanded role at these facilities, UCMVS is, as of 3/01/2017, transitioning away from private clientele to focus on providing veterinary care for smaller zoological and aquarium facilities in NC.  It is with a heavy heart that we make this change as UCMVS was built and grown through business provided by a lot of really wonderful folks.  We have provided a list on our contact page of other veterinarians/clinics that may be able to see and treat your uncommon creatures.  Thank you again for your business and understanding.
