About VEC

Dedicated to your pet's health

Our philosophy is a team-oriented approach to providing the most complete and very best possbile care for your pet.  VEC's group of highly skilled doctors and staff work closely with your family veterinarian, one of the most important members of your pet's healthcare team.

We are more than just an ER - our facility provides post-surgical care, additional diagnostic testing, and monitoring of medical conditions as well, so that the loving, detailed care your pet deserves can be continued when family veterinarians' offices are not open.

Our Wellness Clinic helps to keep your pet healthy and avoid the ER visit - we provide routine yearly exams, vaccines, heartworm testing, screening bloodwork, and parasite prevention.

The doctors and staff of the Veterinary Emergency Center are available to provide the highest quality care for your pet evenings, nights, weekends, and on holidays.
