No loving pet lover ever wants to imagine their animal companion experiencing a critical illness or injury. Unfortunately, accidents happen and sudden, unexpected illnesses occur. In these instances, it’s important to know who you can turn to in order for your pet to receive the best possible care in a timely manner. The team at Veterinary Specialty and Emergency Care is here to provide the highest quality medical, diagnostic and surgical care available. With us, you’re never alone!

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.

Our staff is experienced in managing all manner of acute and life-threatening illness or injury with swiftness, precision and efficiency. We are prepared to step in at a moment’s notice to manage even the most critical of situations, improving the chances of a positive outcome for your four-legged family member.

Depending on your pet’s condition, continued monitoring and ongoing care may be necessary following the initial incident. Our hospital is equipped with an ICU area where intensive care cases can be transferred for ongoing treatment and monitoring. During the time that your pet is with us, we will remain in close contact with your regular family veterinarian and with you, keeping you both abreast of your companion’s condition and working as a team for all important health care decisions.

Highly skilled, experienced specialists, including board certified veterinary surgeons and internal medicine experts, are available to manage your pet’s care with the highest level of attention. Rest assured that in the event that intensive care is needed, there is no better place to receive that care than in our state of the art hospital facility with our dedicated team.

Some of the types of critical illness and injury we provide assistance with include, but are not limited to:

  • Respiratory failure
  • Sepsis
  • Acute renal failure
  • Trauma
  • Toxicity
  • Congestive heart failure

If your pet seems to be experiencing a severe medical emergency, give us a call or bring them directly to our hospital for immediate attention. We’ll be here to get the situation under control and deliver the most effective and timely care available for the best possible outcome.

While we sincerely hope you’ll never need to seek emergency care for your pet, it’s good to know that should your loved one ever become critically ill, you can count on the team at Veterinary Specialty and Emergency Care to be there for you in your time of need.
