Calusa Veterinary Center operates a 24/7/365 emergency room for the convenience of all pet owners throughout Southeast Florida who may have sick or injured pets that need immediate care. In fact, many area primary care practices refer their clients to Calusa when outside their normal business hours, on weekends or for severe cases for which they are unable to provide urgent care.
In the tradition of Calusa’s commitment to providing exceptional service, you can rest assured that your pet’s ultimate recovery will take place with your pre-existing veterinarian. The Calusa Veterinary Emergency Center is NOT a replacement for your regular veterinarian; we are merely an around the clock option in case your pet needs emergency or critical care. Once your pet’s condition has stabilized, we will collaborate with your pet’s regular doctor to craft a recovery plan that they can oversee. In certain situations, your pet will even be transferred from Calusa to your veterinarian’s facility for continued monitoring of their condition.
Being located within Calusa Veterinary Center, our emergency team has access to the same exceptional equipment, diagnostics and other state-of-the-art facilities to allow them to provide the highest quality care imaginable.
Additionally, we have assembled one of the most experienced clinical emergency teams in all of Florida to handle even the most serious cases. All of our emergency veterinarians have received extensive training, are able to perform life-saving surgeries and have worked in fast-paced urgent care environments to ensure their ability to treat your pet quickly and confidently.
While we never look forward to emergency cases in your pets, we stand at the ready should such a situation arise and promise to provide an unmatched level of care and service when you and your pet need it most.
