Our highly trained, experienced, and compassionate emergency staff is prepared for walk-in emergencies at any hour, with the latest technology and equipment to handle any emergency, including:

Veterinary Emergency Staff

Our emergency veterinarians and staff are specially trained in emergency medicine and critical care. Remaining composed under pressure and developing effective treatment options quickly are vital in emergency situations. Because time is of the essence when caring for the unexpected, our policy is to triage your pet upon arrival, just as it is done in a real human hospital, to assure that the most critical patients are always treated immediately. In the event that you do have to wait a little longer, as is the case when another pet is determined to have a more urgent or life-threatening condition, please be patient with us, as we would do the very same for your pet.

The emergency clinicians at MPVESC use their advanced and extensive specialty training and take every measure to ensure that whatever the situation, you and your pet will be in good hands during any emergency.

We do know how stressful it is dealing with an emergency, especially when it comes to your beloved pet. Whether it is your companion's medical condition, the uncertainty of any treatment outcome, or the added challenge of unexpected expenses, we are committed to staying with you every step of the way and will try to make your experience with us as pleasant as possible.
