EMERGENCY VET SERVICES
We do our best to leave time in our schedule to see emergencies that occur during our business hours. In some cases, we may ask to see your pet in one of our veterinary hospitals. In the event the emergency needs to be handled by a specialty center, we will guide you on the best choice for your pet’s extensive care. If you are interested in having your pet transported to the nearest facility, please call our PETS service at (856) 833-4200 or visit the PETS web page.
We do not see after hours emergencies and recommend that you contact the after hours emergency facility nearest to you listed below.
In general, what’s an emergency?
- Any problem that persists longer than 24 hours.
- Any problem that worsens over several hours.
- Any systemic problems such as lethargy, loss of appetite, weakness and fever.
- Body temperature less than 100°F or greater than 104°F.
- Any indication that more than one body system (GI, urinary, neurological) is affected.
In case of an emergency, go to the nearest emergency vet clinic to you.
