Emergencies can happen at any time, day or night, and they don’t always occur during your veterinarian’s normal business hours. In instances when your pet requires urgent veterinary care and your regular clinic isn’t available, you can count on the team at Veterinary Specialty and Emergency Care to be there for you in your time of need.

We are proud to be one of the few hospitals in Indianapolis to have our ER and ICU headed by a board-certified specialist. 

A specialist in emergency and critical care is a specially trained veterinarian who’s dedicated to treating life-threatening conditions. They receive years of intense training in emergency, surgery and critical care through completion of an American College of Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care (ACVECC)-approved training program. This program focuses on the most up-to-date techniques for diagnosis and treatment of life-threatening disease processes in an emergency, and for the critical time while the animal is recovering.  

We give your injured or ill pet a better chance by working with your veterinarian and by having a vigilant ER team led by a veterinarian who is specialty trained in emergency and critical care.

We have experienced doctors, technicians and support staff available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to manage all of your pet’s emergency health care needs. Whether it’s the middle of the night, during the weekend or right in the midst of a holiday celebration, we’ll be here to help. You and your pet will never be alone!
