PETS was originally founded many years ago by a group of local general practice veterinarians to reduce the burden of after hours emergency calls and improve

the quality of this care.


Over the years PETS has continued this tradition of serving the local veterinary community by providing high quality emergency care and has evolved to support specialty services including Internal Medicine, Oncology, Surgery, Ophthalmology, Emergency, and Hospice and Palliative Care.  We are available 24hrs/day, 365 days a year including all holidays and no appointment is necessary for emergency care.


We work closely with you, the primary care veterinarian,  with the shared goal of providing  your patient and client with the best possible care. We also feel the most important ingredient in providing quality medical care is the people, and we are very proud of our team of skilled and compassionate doctors, nurses, and client service staff. When your pet is under our care, you can rest assured that she or he is in good hands.


Our hospital was specifically designed to provide emergency care, and all pets receive the closest of supervision around the clock. Each pet receives individual attention and comfortable bedding. Except at times when we are unusually busy, we allow families to visit their pet and feel this can promote recovery. 


We are committed to providing your patients and families with the same level of care and compassion we would want for our own pets. Gentle handling and comfort are top priorities and your patients will be treated with kindness while under our care.
