The staff and Dr.'s are the best! Our dog Jasper was brutally attacked by 2 other dogs was in critical condition and in shock, as were we. They treated him and us with compassion, respect, and rapidly. They worked with us financially as well. They save his life and our sanity. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR ALL OF YOU AND WHAT YOU DID!!! Today our cat Rufus was critically ill with urinary obstruction, Again they got him in right away, and saved his life! I am so pleased with the way he and I were treated. Dr Wells and Nana are the best!

I love this place! Again THANK YOU ANIMAL ER CENTER and staff, you are the best of the best!

My roommate noticed a laceration on my cat while I was out of state. This vet was very understanding and not only allowed me to pay over the phone, but also kept me up to date on everything that was going on. After my cat got sedated and got stitches, I noticed she was acting funny. I called the vet and they were so helpful and offered to take a look at her again for free. I know I probably annoyed them with my phone calls, but they were so sweet and helpful and really went above and beyond what I expected.
Tips & Advices
Bring medical records and medications that your pet is taking. Also, you should bring your ID and a form of payment.
Yes, there are veterinary clinics that only deal with emergency cases. They generally take walk-ins and referrals from family vets.
Yes, emergency vets treat dental emergencies and dental trauma. Freshly fractured teeth are the main category of dental injury that vets consider an emergency.
To prevent health emergencies, experts recommend supervising one’s pets, and trying to make sure they don’t get into emergency situations. A majority of emergency vet visits happen because animals were struck by cars, bit by other animals, or ingested toxins. Otherwise, the best way to prevent emergencies is by having a go-to vet you can call with any questions, and being vigilant about potential symptoms (i.e. runny stool, or trouble walking) as they appear but before they become extremely serious.
Experts say that the conditions that necessitate an emergency veterinarian visit include collapse, seizures, inability to walk, partial paralysis, and any difficulty breathing (non-stop panting, constant coughing, hyperventilation, or elevated heart rate). Gum color is often an indicator that something is wrong--especially blue gums or very pale gums. Excessive vomiting or a distended abdomen should be considered an emergency situation. Signs of any trauma or excessive bleeding should send your pet straight to the vet. Lastly, for cat owners, urinary obstruction is fatal if not treated, and generally occurs in male cats.
