Emergency Pet Services

You know your pet better than anyone else does—and you can tell when something isn’t right. If you’re concerned, never hesitate to call or go directly to the Care Center location nearest you. That’s why we’re here.

Day or night, weekends and holidays, our caring staff is available and equipped to help your pet with any emergency. Our entire team of emergency veterinarians approach your family pet’s health with compassion and expertise.

When an animal experiences an emergency, the treatment process can be similar to visiting a human emergency room. As soon as your pet arrives at Care Center, our emergency team will quickly assess your pet’s condition. Patients are treated in order of severity of their situation, not necessarily in order of arrival, to make sure critical cases receive the attention they need. We’ll carefully examine your pet and create a diagnostic and treatment care plan. Our emergency veterinarian will discuss this plan with you, and go over any questions or concerns you may have.

If your pet needs to be admitted to the hospital overnight, the emergency staff will call you with any new information or any changes in your pet's condition. We understand that as pet parents you are anxious for news, so please don’t hesitate to call in and ask about your pet’s condition, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Our nursing staff is always here and happy to give you an update.
