Expect the Finest Emergency Services for Your Pets

Our emergency team has the expertise necessary to treat the most complex illnesses and injuries in companion animals. Diagnostics include a state-of-the-art veterinary laboratory and imaging equipment, including radiology, MRI, and ultrasound.

Emergency Care Available 24/7

VSES provides 24-hour urgent veterinary care when your pets are in crisis. Walk-in patients are seen as quickly as possible based on the severity of the illness or injury. We utilize a triage system that helps our staff decide which patients are in the most immediate need of care. Because we address patients based on the nature of their problem, critical cases may be seen before your pet.

First, as part of the triage process, our staff will ask you questions about your pet. Your pet will then be taken to the treatment area for immediate assessment, intervention, and life-saving therapy or surgery, if needed, by our trained emergency clinicians and staff. Your pet may be released the same evening or if the patient’s condition warrants it, your pet will be transferred to our hospital unit and admitted for services. The length of patient stay depends upon the nature and severity of the illness or injury.

Sick and injured animals often behave in an unpredictable manner. Your pet should be in a carrier or wearing an effective restraint for its own protection and that of other patients in the waiting area.

Emergencies are seen on a walk-in basis, but we urge you to call ahead so we know you’re coming: (585) 424-1277
