Bradenton's LOCAL Pet Healthcare Center

Though we are highly skilled at providing care for pets when they are sick, we also recognize the importance of keeping pets healthy.  We emphasize a broad spectrum of care for both well and sick pets. 


Preventive care such as vaccines, heartworm and flea prevention, and routine doctor exams are crucial to keeping your pet safe and sound.


We offer wellness services during convenient afternoon and evening hours, with the same excellent care for healthy pets.

Emergencies may happen when your family vet is not open, and it can be very frightening when your pet is ill or injured.  There are times when urgent care makes all the difference, and it is important to know who you can quickly turn to in the event of an emergency.  

If you live in Bradenton or surrounding areas, an animal emergency no longer requires a long drive to the nearest ER - your pet can be seen and receive treatment much more quickly locally!

Veterinary Emergency Center is centrally located for residents of Bradenton, Anna Maria Island, Longboat Key, and surrounding areas so your pet can receive the care he or she needs as soon as possible.  You can trust our skilled, dedicated ER vets and staff to provide the best possible care for your pet no matter how mild or severe the illness is.  

Veterinary Emergency Center is the only veterinary clinic in west Bradenton specifically designed for and dedicated to emergency and intensive care for your family pets.  Our state-of-the-art facility allows us to provide the highest quality care for your pet; ranging from basic outpatient treatment of wounds, infections, and illnesses to inpatient intensive critical care/medical management with continuous monitoring as well as emergency lifesaving surgery.
