MedVet recognizes that pets are an important part of your family. That is why the majority of our emergency rooms are open 24/7. If your pet is experiencing a life threatening emergency, please call your veterinarian or find your closest MedVet location. If possible, call us for advice on stabilizing your pet prior to transport to our facility.

Coming to MedVet 

MedVet works very much like a human hospital. We offer state-of-the-art emergency, critical and specialty care to cats and dogs. The majority of our emergency departments are open 24 hours each day for emergencies. If your pet is facing an emergency situation, you may come directly to our hospital – no referral is needed.

Pets arriving for emergency care are triaged as they arrive, and treated as quickly as possible, based on their presenting symptoms. Critical cases are handled immediately, followed by pets in urgent but stable condition. We communicate your pet’s problem to your veterinarian and you can choose to return there or if needed, stay at MedVet for continued care. Our veterinary specialists can be consulted through the emergency department or scheduled directly with an appointment.

Our client services staff is prepared at any time to discuss initial emergency examination fees and our payment options and policies with you.

Working with Your Veterinarian 

We work closely with your family veterinarian to establish the best care plan based on each individual pet’s situation.  We inform your family veterinarian about your pet’s condition and treatment by providing copies of all medical records, laboratory findings, and treatment plans within 24 hours of your pet’s visit to MedVet. You and your veterinarian will be regularly updated and involved in helping to direct the ongoing care of your pet.

This total team approach, which includes emergency care, specialty care as needed, and the active involvement of your family veterinarian, ensures that your pet receives the best collaborative emergency care he or she deserves.
