Our Emergency and Critical Care service is experiencing an unprecedented caseload, which is resulting in significant wait times. Critical pets will be prioritized.

We are committed to caring for your pet – while maintaining the highest level of safety for our Associates and pet owners. Face coverings/masks are required at all of our U.S. hospitals. We thank you for your continued patience and support. Learn more about our COVID-19 response and guidelines.
