Emergency Services

The highly trained veterinarians and staff at 24/7 PetVets are available to treat pets who are suffering from life-threatening trauma and disease. 24/7 PetVets is available for transfers from your primary care veterinarian as well as for walk in urgent care needs and emergencies.  24/7 PetVets is equipped with continuous cardiac telemetry, pulse oximetry, blood pressure, in house laboratory, digital radiographs (x-rays) and ultrasound. For pets that need oxygen supplementation, we have ICU units that provide an oxygen enriched and humidity controlled environment. Advanced techniques such as blood component therapy, rattle snake antivenin, endoscopy, and rhinoscopy are also available.
