Emergencies and Urgent Care


We sincerely hope that your pet never needs to come to our animal hospital and see our emergency vet in Ocala. However, if they do, we will be ready to receive them. Please call us ahead of time so that our team can prepare for your arrival and treat your pet as promptly as possible. If you are unsure whether they are having an emergency, call our office regardless so that we can help. Your pet’s safety is very important to us.

Request an Appointment:

To optimize our efficiency and reduce client waiting times, we prefer to operate primarily by appointments. Drop-off appointments may be requested by the pet owner to maximize his/her time or suggested by our staff if all appointments are filled for the day and the pet owner is wanting his animal evaluated or treated the same day.
