  • The Vet & staff are very caring & kind! Animal Emergency & Critical Care is an after hours clinic only, with hours approximately 6pm-8am & open during Holidays & weekends. I called on the phone before bringing my dog in & the kind lady who answered the phone helped me to access the emergency, giving me vital info to get there quickly & safely.

  • Last Sunday I rushed my Bronco to the ER and he received exceptional treatment and care. Sadly he ended up having to be put to sleep but they were able to help ensure his last few moments he spent free of pain and fear and I was able to stay and talk with him. Today I received a very kind card from the office in which they had all signed their sympathy. I would never wish that experience on anyone but I am forever grateful for the care the provided to us.
