Monterey's 24/7 Full-Service Veterinary Health Care Center

Providing all of your pet's medical needs.

We are open for emergency veterinary services 24/7/365 — during the night, on weekends and holidays, when your veterinarian is not able to see your pet, or for referral from your veterinarian for overnight care. We work closely with your veterinarian to provide the best continuous care and exchange of information, furnishing detailed medical records, copies of all laboratory work, and radiographic images on CD.

Our emergency services also extend to provide 24/7, around-the-clock critical care for the most seriously ill and injured pets, and we offer emergency services during the day through our well-trained and experienced general practice staff members. We do understand that in an emergency, time is of the essence, and we are prepared to see any pet emergency on a walk-in basis.

Board-Certified Veterinary Specialty Surgery

We offer surgical consultations and surgery by board-certified surgeons from the Santa Cruz Veterinary Hospital to provide specialty pet surgery services close to your home, making it much easier on you and your pet. Consultations can be scheduled through a referral from your veterinarian, our emergency services, or our general practice.

General Pet Care

We have recently expanded our services and now offer all aspects of comprehensive general practice pet care during the day, providing wellness care, preventive medicine, and extensive medical and surgical treatments. Please call to schedule an appointment with our caring receptionists. If time does not allow, we do welcome walk-ins to care for your petís urgent needs.

At MPVESC, your pet is in the ideal location for any aspect of medical care he or she may need, all conveniently located under one roof.

We love to show off our beautiful, state-of-the-art facility and encourage you to stop by for a hospital tour or contact us for more information.
