Emergency Services


The Lloyd VMC offers evaluation, medical care, and surgical treatment to animals with urgent medical needs 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Board-certified veterinary emergency and critical care specialists lead our dedicated team which includes highly skilled emergency doctors, residents, interns, veterinary technicians and staff who work together to provide the highest standard of veterinary care to ill or injured animals. We see patients brought in for initial evaluation by their owners, as well as patients who are referred by other veterinarians. Our goal is to provide seamless veterinary care by working closely with local veterinarians to ensure that all of our patients get the best care possible before, during, and after hospitalization.

The Small and Large Animal Emergency services can offer the most advanced medical and surgical treatments to diagnose and treat a wide variety of conditions. We collaborate with a wide-array of veterinary specialists in anesthesiology, cardiology, radiology, internal medicine, surgery, and dentistry to provide comprehensive care.
