Please call before you arrive so that we may better serve you. Call the University of Georgia Emergency Service 706-542-3221 if you need assistance after closing. Thank you again for your patience as we face this unprecedented challenge together.


Payment must be made in full at time of service. We accept Cash, Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover, and Care Credit. Unfortunately we do not bill.


We provide emergency and critical care for dogs and cats. Our in-house laboratory testing and x-ray facilities, mean that we can have results while you wait.  When indicated for the survival of the patient, we can perform blood transfusions or emergency surgery.  We routinely treat allergic reactions, cardio-vascular shock, trauma (hit by car, etc), venomous snake bites, toxic ingestions, heat stroke, respiratory distress, parvo, vomiting, diarrhea, assist in labor and delivery, repair lacerations, and otherwise provide care in critical situations.

For critically ill patients, we can provide i.v. fluid therapy and monitoring, i.v. and urinary catheter maintenence, seizure watch, oxygen therapy, or intensive care in isolation. Area veterinarians transfer patients to us for overnight treatments and observation when patients are not stable.  We transfer patients back to their family veterinarians during normal business hours.

We do NOT provide routine preventitive care such as vaccinations, spays, neuters, heartworm preventitive, flea and tick control, or dental procedures.  These aspects of health care are best provided by family veterinarians that have an ongoing long term relationship with you and your pet.
