Emergency and Urgent Vet Care for Exotic Pets in Charleston, SC
Do you think your pet needs emergency or urgent care? Please bring them in to see us so one of our experienced exotic veterinarians can treat them. With urgent or potentially life-threatening medical situations, it is crucial that your pet is brought to the right facility as quickly as possible. Having to transfer your pet from one facility to another could be the difference between life and death.
Our hospital is equipped to treat a wide range of urgent problems and emergencies. If you are concerned about your pet's health, call us as soon as possible at (843) 216-8387.
We are open 8AM-7PM Monday through Thursday, 8AM-6PM Friday, and 8AM-2PM Saturday.
On Saturdays and Sundays, we have an answering service available during our daytime hours which you can use to reach a doctor if needed. This type of appointment requires a non-refundable deposit, since the on-call vet will need to travel to see your pet.
How to Handle After-Hours Emergencies
If your pet is having an emergency after our business hours, you can stabilize your pet at home utilizing the Basic First Aid Tips to Stabilize Your Pet Prior to ER Transport above and book an appointment for the next day. We open at 8:00AM and you are welcome to bring your pet in then for a day admission. Please fill the Pre-visit Questionnaire Form online to expedite the process. One of our team members will admit your pet, get it stabilized and call you later with a treatment plan. If you are unable to stabilize your pet, please contact one of the emergency vets listed below.
Recommended After-Hours Emergency Vets
Please be aware that after-hours appointments are more costly than daytime appointments, and ER vets mainly see dogs and cats. Therefore, the level of care they are able to provide may not be optimal for your exotic pet. However, when it comes to life or death situations, one of them should be able to assist.
If you found an injured or orphaned wild animal outdoors, please call one of the following, or reach out to one of the emergency vets listed above if found after-hours.
