In times of emergency, your pet's health and well-being are our top priorities. At Central Veterinary Hospital, we provide immediate, compassionate care for your pets, ensuring they receive prompt and effective treatment. Our team of experienced veterinarians and medical staff is equipped to handle a variety of emergency situations, always treating your pet with empathy and professionalism.

Our Services and Facilities

Our clinic is equipped with essential diagnostic tools, including X-ray and ultrasound machines, and blood analysis equipment, to swiftly diagnose and treat your pet’s condition. We perform many soft tissue and orthopedic procedures, including but not limited to wound repairs, c-sections, foreign body removals, and much more. While we handle many emergencies, we refer severe trauma cases or those requiring intensive care to a specialized 24-hour facility, ensuring your pet receives the best possible care.

Recognizing Pet Emergencies

Understanding when your pet needs urgent medical attention is crucial. Key indicators include trauma-related injuries, severe gastrointestinal issues, alarming behavioral changes, respiratory difficulties, abdominal swelling or pain, neurologic symptoms, foreign object ingestion, and urinary problems. In these situations, immediate veterinary attention is crucial.

Our Commitment to Collaboration

We believe in working alongside your local primary veterinarians. After emergency treatment, we ensure a smooth transition back to your regular vet for continued care. Our aim is to complement, not replace, the care they provide, ensuring a comprehensive approach to your pet's health.

For immediate assistance or more information about our emergency services, please contact our office. At Central Veterinary Hospital's Urgent Care, we are ready to provide quality care and guidance during critical moments, always prioritizing the health and comfort of your pet and your peace of mind.

"Excellent care, very trustworthy and thoughtful. Hannah F. and Dr. Beckner are a dream team. They took great care of our kitty, who can be skittish and squirmy. I would definitely recommend them."

"We came in as an ER visit at 6:30 one evening, everyone front front desk to the vet tech and vet were so nice and helpful and got us in an out easily! The vet then followed up a few days later to make sure our pup was doing okay. Fantastic service all the way around!"
