Providing Excellent Care Through

Compassion, Communication & Technology

The Veterinary Emergency Referral Center is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year to provide modern, compassionate care for pets in Pensacola and the surrounding areas.

Our emergency, critical, and specialty vet care and referral services are delivered by our board-certified veterinarians, highly trained technicians, and caring support staff. If you need critical care or have a referral for specialty veterinary services for your dog or cat, we’re here to help.

The Veterinary Emergency Center (VERC) specializes in a variety of areas including ER, Critical Care, Neurology, and Surgery in addition to utilizing advanced imaging and diagnostics at our center.

Emergency Care

Emergency situations affecting our animals often arise without warning. While most pet owners do everything they can to provide a safe and secure environment for their best friend, there are some situations that can’t be predicted or prevented. From visible trauma caused by dog bites, fights or being hit by a car to pets exhibiting unusual behaviors or symptoms, we diagnose and treat the underlying problems to ease their pain and put your animal on the path to recovery.

Surgery and Neurology

The Veterinary Emergency Referral Center is the most advanced surgery center in Northwest Florida, staffed by a caring support team trained to use our state-of-the-art technology. From our clean and comfortable waiting room to the paw-friendly heated floors in our recovery ward, our entire facility is designed to keep you and your pet as stress-free as possible.

Advanced Imaging and Diagnostics

Unlike human patients, animals cannot answer questions about how they’re feeling or what is causing their distress. In fact, most dogs and cats instinctively hide outward signs of injury or disease! That’s why it is so important to have thorough diagnostic tests and accurate images of your pet’s internal organs and structures to identify injuries or signs of disease. At the Veterinary Emergency Referral Center, we have the equipment to perform a wide range of medical imaging services for pets. From digital X-Rays, endoscopy, and fluoroscopy imaging modalities to ultrasounds and echocardiograms, we have the technology and know-how to see the details of trauma and internal injuries. We also perform services not found at most veterinarian offices such as CT scans, MRI scans, and myelograms.
