  • Because our pets don't always need health care during "business hours" we try to be available when you need us. You may call us 24 hours a day if your pet has an emergency. We will arrange for your pet to be seen by a veterinarian as soon as possible.

Animal Medical & Emergency Hospital has received the Commitment to Excellence Award from the American Animal Hospital Association. We treat each patient as a unique individual. We try diligently to avoid interfering with the natural healing process by customizing vaccinations and integrating therapies such as acupuncture, chiropractic, homeopathy, herbal medicine, and many other non-conventional therapies. We have spent many years studying, in order to have more options available so we can individualize patient care. We realize that we are most successful when we work with the pets' owners to accomplish their goals.

In addition to our dog and cat patients, we also have treated zoo animals, pocket pets, exotic pets, and even insects! We love them all!

It is our ethical guideline that we treat our patients as we want our own bodies treated. We continue to search for the best possible medical practices from human and animal medicine, so that we can offer each of our patients the best health available. Please call us today if we can help you with the healthcare of your pet.
