Few aspects of pet ownership are more terrifying than when your pet has taken ill in the middle of the night or during weekend hours when your veterinarian's office is closed. Our Emergency Service is here to care for your pet under these circumstances, and we are no farther away than your phone, 24 hours a day. We treat a wide variety of medical and surgical conditions affecting dogs and cats. When you arrive, your pet will be examined and assessed by one of our emergency veterinarians who will explain the treatment options available to you. (Please remember that cases are seen on the basis of need, with the most severely affected patients being seen first).
A fully equipped state-of-the-art veterinary hospital...
Our state-of-the-art equipment and treatment regimens are similar to those found in human hospitals. Our in-house laboratory can provide fast and accurate, lifesaving information which enables us to aggressively and appropriately treat your pet. In order to be proactive rather than reactive, we have an extensive monitoring network and outstanding professional and support personnel. When seconds count... we are here for you!
Some examples of when your pet might need emergency medical attention include:
Call us: If you are unsure if your pet is in need of emergency care, we are available to help. A phone call to our staff may help ease your mind or help you make an informed decision. 520.888.3177
Triage: We treat the most critically ill or seriously injured patients first. Upon arrival at SAVSEC all pets are triaged by our experienced medical staff. Pets with emergencies are seen as they arrive at SAVSEC and served based on the severity of the condition or injury. If your pet has life-threatening needs, they will be seen immediately.
To ensure continuity of care your family veterinarian will be updated of your pet's visit to our hospital. The attending doctor will contact your regular veterinarian upon discharge to notify them of your visit, and we remain available to them even after your pet's stay with us is completed. We will also fax your pets medical records.
Upon discharge from SAVSEC you will be provided with discharge instructions, medications if needed and recommendations for follow-up care. Our emergency staff is available 24 hours a day for questions and concerns about your pet's health.
We understand that it takes much more than just medical skill to fully care for animals, it takes compassion and dedication.
We care about that one special pet - yours.
