Dr. Gucciardo and staff are on duty five days a week and are trained and equipped to handle any urgent care need your pet(s) may have. Emergencies are accepted anytime our clinic is open. If you feel you have an emergency with your pet please call us or come in immediately. If possible, it is best to call before coming in so that a staff member can advise you on your particular emergency. Emergencies can be things such as accidental ingestion of rat poison, hit by car, and chocolate ingestion. If you ever feel that your pet needs emergency treatment do not hesitate to call or come in immediately.
We are also available for urgent care when the condition is not life-threatening. If you feel your pet needs to be seen before you are able to get an appointment, our staff will work to "squeeze" you in between other scheduled appointments, but please be advised that you may experience a wait to see the doctor.
If you call the office outside of our regular business hours, you will have the option to be transferred via phone directly to Atlantic Coast Veterinary Specialists. They will be happy to see your pet for any emergency needs. Please keep in mind they do not have access your pets medical records.
For animal emergencies outside of our regular business hours, please contact one of the local 24-hour animal emergency centers listed below:
