About Us

Our animal hospital is the result of a collaboration of 10 different veterinary clinics in the area who came together to address the problem of not having emergency care available to the community. And so, our animal hospital was born. Established in 1999, we filled the gap of emergency care by providing urgent care services after hours and on weekends and holidays.

How We Care for Your Pet

While we started off small, we are now a full-fledged animal hospital built specifically for emergency cases. No matter what your pet’s emergency, whether they have suffered trauma, are experiencing an allergic reaction, have ingested a foreign object, or any other situation, we have the tools and the expertise to get them back to full health. We will treat every patient like the individual they are since no two pets and no two conditions are exactly the same.

Additionally, we will work with your regular veterinarian to develop an ongoing treatment and recovery plan should your pet require it.

We Use Only the Best Tools and Equipment

When you bring your pet to us, our fully staffed team keeps an eye on them the entire time they are with us. Our veterinarians are highly skilled and experienced in urgent pet care and our state-of-the-art facility features top-of-the-line equipment for diagnoses and treatments. Some of our tools include:

  • Digital radiography
  • CT scan
  • ECG (echocardiogram)
  • Ultrasound
  • Soft tissue surgery
  • Ophthalmology (eye care)
  • Fluoroscopy (using radiography to obtain real-time images)
  • Blood transfusions
  • Plasma transfusions
