Pet emergencies, accidents, and illnesses are unfortunately an inevitable aspect of being a pet owner. We understand how upsetting it is when your pet is sick or injured. Shores Animal Hospital offers pet emergency services and critical care veterinary medical services.
We have a veterinarian and personnel on duty at our Gainesville, Florida, animal hospital 6 days a week DURING BUSINESS HOURS who are trained and equipped to handle any urgent care your pet has. Usually an emergency team consists of at least one veterinarian and several technicians working together to save a pet's life.
Pet emergencies can be things such as poisoning, a car accident or ingestion of toxic substances. If you ever feel that your pet needs emergency treatment do not hesitate to call us at (352) 372-8387 or come in immediately during business hours. If possible, please call before coming in so that a team member can advise you on your particular pet emergency.
We are also available for pet 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. Shores Animal Hospital will do our best to accommodate you into our schedule. 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.
For pet emergencies that happen outside our hours (nights and weekends), contact UF Small Animal Hospital at 352-392-2235.
We are closed evenings, Sundays and holidays, but offer emergency services for pets. Shores Animal Hospital is located in Gainesville, Florida. Call us anytime and we’ll gladly help with your pet emergency.
