Emergency Veterinary Care 24 hours, 365 days a year.
What you need to know
What do you do if your pet becomes ill or is injured in the middle of the night? During the weekend? On a holiday? Don’t worry – you can achieve “Pet peace of mind” knowing Veterinary Referral and Emergency Center will be there whenever an emergency occurs.
VREC provides crucial emergency services with speed, with skill, and with love. Our facility’s Emergency department is fully staffed 24 hours a day and is fully capable of handling minor to critical emergency, critical care, and trauma cases. Our emergency clinicians have over 30 years of combined experience and work in tandem with a skilled staff of licensed veterinary technicians and veterinary assistants. They are well-versed in treating an array of symptoms such as trauma, shock, respiratory issues, cardiac issues, neurological issues, and other severe issues. If your pet should require additional care from a referral department, we can easily internally transfer your pet’s care, reducing stress, travel, and time.
We take pride in our consistent and open communication between you and your primary care veterinarian and have worked tirelessly to earn and keep the trust of practices throughout the community (see our list of referring veterinarians here). We care for your pet as if they were our own while offering support and guidance to you when it is needed the most.
When an accident occurs, how you choose to respond is crucial on the road to recovery. Pets are members of the family and we understand that it can be difficult to process information when your pet becomes ill or is injured. Being separated during trying times can be traumatic for both you and your pet so we commit ourselves to providing the absolute best care to both you and your pet; we communicate vital information to you every step of the way on the road to recovery.
