Our facility in Austin hosts the latest in veterinary diagnostic equipment and testing, and our on-site laboratory provides rapid and accurate results. Our state-of-the-art surgical suite allows our highly trained veterinary staff to quickly respond to any veterinary emergency, such as:

  • Accident
  • Injury

Your pet’s health, safety, and comfort are important to us. In the event of an accident or illness, our veterinary team can provide advanced critical care for your pet including:

  • IV fluid therapy
  • Oxygen therapy
  • Intensive care monitoring

If overnight monitoring is required, our convenient concierge service can transfer your pet to an after-hours emergency hospital and return him or her in the morning to our care.

If your pet requires emergency medical services after our normal business hours, we recommend Emergency Animal Hospital North or Emergency Animal Hospital South. Please contact us if your pet receives after-hours emergency veterinary treatment. We will work closely with the emergency veterinarian, and any follow-up care can be performed at our facility.
