Emergency

We would love it if nobody needed to utilize this particular service, but we understand reality.  We provide emergency care for the local community and anyone in the greater Buffalo area.  If you notice something wrong with your pet and your regular veterinarian isn’t available, call us and we can provide some direction.  If there’s something you can do to help right in your own home, we’ll suggest it.  If it sounds like your pet would benefit from having our team check things out, we’ll certainly encourage that course of action.  We get it that nobody wants to go to the emergency vet but we are here for you if needed.

We have three isolation rooms (intensive care unit, respiratory isolation unit, gastrointestinal isolation unit) along with our main treatment room available for our critically ill patients.  We are equipped to handle 24 hour monitoring for patients while in hospital.  Our state of the art equipment and veterinary technicians and support team members are available to care for patients at all times.
