Have an Emergency?
If your pet requires emergency care during our regular business hours, call us or get your pet to our hospital right away. Starting treatment quickly may decrease recovery time or even save a life.
We do our best to work in as many urgent/emergent patients as we can; however, if there are already several patients triaged before you, we may recommend you go to Carolina Veterinary Specialist depending on the extent/degree of injury.
