Our appointment book is computerized which allows us to efficiently make appointments for you and your pet.  Our receptionists and team will attempt to accommodate all requests to the best of our ability.  Emergencies are accepted anytime our clinic is open.  If you feel you have an emergency with your pet, please call us or come to the hospital immediately.  If possible, it is best to call before coming in so that a staff member can advise you on your particular emergency and arrangements can be made ahead of your arrival.

Saturday appointments are available in our Ocean City office.  You can contact them for a Saturday appointment at 410-213-1170

Emergency & Urgent Care

We have a veterinarian and personnel available 24 hours Monday through Thursday who are trained and equipped to handle urgent needs your pet may have.  If you ever feel that your pet needs emergency treatment, do not hesitate to call immediately.  If is is outside of normal business hours our answering service will put you in touch with the doctor on call.  After hours emergencies are seen in our Ocean CIty facility at 11843 Ocean Gateway, Ocean CIty, Maryland 21842.

We are also available for urgent care when the condition is not life-threatening, but you feel your pet needs to be seen before you are able to get an appointment.  Our veterinarians will work to "squeeze" you in between scheduled appointments.  When you arrive, our receptionists will be able to give you an estimate on how long you may have to wait in order to be seen.
