Knowing the location and contact information for your local Animal ER in advance of an emergency happening can prove life-saving. These resources are valuable not just when you're close to home but also when an emergency occurs while you're in a new location or on vacation with your pets.
In certain cases, the involvement of a board-certified specialist in a particular discipline of veterinary medicine or surgery may help you and your regular veterinarian achieve a diagnosis and effective treatment/management plan faster and more efficiently.
In these cases you should speak with your veterinarian about recommended local specialists. You can also use the Find a Veterinary Specialist search tool, or go to the website of the governing college of the particular specialty you are interested in – the links to these different colleges are listed below.
