What We Do...

We offer specialized veterinary care and 24/7 emergency and critical care services to provide peace-of-mind to pet owners and to support primary care veterinarians. We complement the care of primary care veterinarians and partner with them to provide a full spectrum of medicine care.

Our board-certified specialists offer services in emergency and critical care, surgery, internal medicine, cardiology, neurology, oncology, dentistry, diagnostic imaging, and animal rehabilitation.

If your pet has an emergency, we’re here 24/7/365 to help; walk-ins are welcome, no referral is necessary. As a VECCS Level 1 certified hospital, we are capable of handling even the most critical, life-threatening emergencies and trauma, with specialists on call to handle any medical or surgical issue your pet may be experiencing.

Please see our FAQs page for answers to common questions about appointments and our board-certified specialists and specialty services.

… And What We Don't Do

We do not offer the wellness care, vaccines, or routine medical, dental or surgical procedures that primary care (family) veterinarians normally perform. We also do not provide routine care to reptiles, birds, rabbits, rodents, mustelids, etc.

We provide care when pets have an emergency or critical condition, require specialty diagnostics such as CT or MRI, require the expertise of a board-certified veterinary specialist, or require specialty treatments such as mechanical ventilation.​

If your patient or pet might benefit from a specialty consultation, we encourage a referral from your family veterinarian to a specialist at our hospital.

For more information about appointments, our specialty services and our board-certified specialists, please see our FAQs page.
