We understand how upsetting it is to have a sick or injured pet and not be able to get help quickly. Our  emergency services are available to you 24 hours a day; 7 days a week. Staff veterinarians along with technical support staff are on premises at all times working as a team with skill and compassion to respond to emergency calls during the hours your veterinarian is unavailable. We will stabilize your pet, perform any necessary diagnostic tests and continue treatment as needed. Your pet will be in the best possible hands so you can have peace of mind.

Although an appointment is not needed, we ask that you telephone the hospital to alert us to your emergency so that we can prepare properly for your pet arrival.

Some examples of emergency situations may include but are not restricted to:

Trauma: Car accidents, puncture wounds, eye injury, bite wounds/animal fights, head injuries, airway obstruction, heatstroke, frostbite, breathing problems, electric shock, snake bites, falling from high places.

Toxins/Poisons: Chocolate, mushrooms, onions, plants, household cleansers, pool chemicals, human medications, coins, bones, rodent poisons, anti-freeze.

Disease/Illness: Profuse vomiting or diarrhea, vomiting blood or passing blood in stool or urine, seizures, listlessness, allergic reactions, difficult urination, refusal to eat, collapse, difficulty breathing.

Emergency Surgery: Cesarean section, tracheotomy, urinary obstruction, abdominal/chest exploratory surgery, endoscopy, chest tube placement, bloating/twisted stomach.

Your pet will be closely monitored as we provide the following advanced life support procedures as needed:

d. Blood pressure monitoring

e. Nutritional management

f. Blood analysis and monitoring

g. Cardiac resuscitation, defibrillation and post resuscitations care.

What to expect when you come in for an emergency:

*Call ahead if possible; our staff is on site 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

*If you suspect your pet has been exposed to a toxin; please bring us the container and/or a sample of the suspected toxin.

*Bring your pet’s medical records if available.

*At the hospital you will be greeted by a receptionist who will then have a trained technician evaluate your pet.

*If you pet needs to be admitted to the hospital the admitting doctor will discuss the projected diagnostics and/or therapeutic services and fees with you.

*A board certified specialist may be consulted if needed.


Our staff doctors confer daily on all hospitalized cases and your pet may be under the care of more than one doctor.

You may call the hospital after 10:00am Monday through Saturday and after 1:00pm on Sunday to check on your pet’s progress. Although the doctor may be unable to receive a phone call at that time, a summary of your pet’s condition will be available from the telephone receptionist.

Before any patient is admitted to the hospital (unless it is an emergency situation), we ask that all vaccines be current and that the patient be free of ticks and fleas. If these requirements are not met, we must satisfy them at your expense. This is for the protection of your pet and our hospitalized patients as well.

Visitation Policy:

Although we realize you may be eager to visit your pet while hospitalized, visitation is done on a case by case basis. Visitation may not be recommended in order to avoid anxiety caused by expectations of going home. In some cases hospital visits could cause psychological or emotional trauma in your pet.

In some instances the advantage of visitation outweighs the disadvantage and your veterinarian may permit you to visit your pet. These visits must be restricted to 10 minutes in length since we do not wish your pet’s treatment schedule to be interrupted or delayed by prolonged visitation.

Visiting hours that are pre-arranged with your pet’s doctor are as follows:





Visitation is not available on Saturday and Sunday unless special arrangements are made between you and your doctor.

Communication with your veterinarian.

A brief report will be faxed to your veterinarian when your pet is seen for emergency care. Your veterinarian will be updated through progress reports during your pet’s hospital stay followed by a detailed summary report upon discharge.

Please follow up with your local veterinarian about continued care for your pet.

Our technologically advanced life saving equipment in conjunction with the highly developed skills of out staff serve us well in diagnosing and caring for critical and challenging cases. We are prepared to assist your veterinarian in the treatment of your ill or injured pet at any time.

Emergency Services Available 24 hours a Day Every Day of the Year

Please phone the hospital at (201) 262-0010 or 800-624-1883 so that we may prepare for your pet’s arrival. If this is not possible, please come directly to the hospital.

About jwatrel

I am a free-lance writer and Blogger. I am the author of the book "Firehouse 101" (IUniverse.com 2005) part of trilogy of books centered in New York City. My next book "Love Triangles" is finished being edited and should be ready for release in the Fall. My latest book, "Dinner at Midnight", a thriller is on its last chapter. My long awaited book explains the loss of the 2004 Yankee game to Boston. I work as a Consultant, Adjunct College Professor, Volunteer Fireman and Ambulance member and Blogger. I have a blog site for caregivers called 'bergencountycaregiver', a step by step survival guide to all you wonderful folks taking care of your loved ones, a walking project to walk every block, both sides, of the island of Manhattan "MywalkinManhattan" and discuss what I see and find on the streets of New York and three sites to accompany it. One is an arts site called "Visiting a Museum", where I showcase small museums, historical sites and parks that are off the beaten track both in Manhattan and outside the city to cross reference with "MywalkinManhattan" blog site. Another is "DiningonaShoeStringNYC", featuring small restaurants I have found on my travels in this project, that offer wonderful meals for $10.00 and under. So be on the lookout for updates on all three sites and enjoy 'MywalkinManhattan'. The third is my latest site, "LittleShoponMainStreet", which showcases all the unique and independent shops that I have found on my travels throughout and around Manhattan. I have started two new blog sites for the fire department, one "EngineOneHasbrouck HeightsFireDepartmentnj" for the Hasbrouck Heights Fire Department to discuss what our Engine Company is doing and the other is "BergenCountyFireman'sHomeAssociation" for the Bergen County Fireman's Association, which fire fighters from Bergen County, NJ, go to the Fireman's Home in Boonton, NJ to bring entertainment and cheer to our fellow brother fire fighters quarterly.
