Our emergency team is lead by board-certified emergency and critical care specialists. To become board-certified, a veterinarian must complete an internship and a minimum of 3 years in an approved residency program (after earning a DVM degree) that includes intense, hands-on training in emergency medicine, surgery and critical care. After successfully completing this training, the veterinarian must pass a rigorous testing and certification process to become board-certified by the American College of Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care. The remainder of our ER team is comprised of experienced ER doctors, some of whom are actively pursuing residency training at our facility.

Our veterinary emergency specialists offer advanced skills along with the knowledge and expertise that comes with decades of combined experience…all delivered with compassion, empathy and a true love for the animals we serve. Learn more about our emergency and critical care specialists here.
