Emergency Room 24-7 Care
Special Note: If your pet needs emergency care stay calm and if possible call ahead (803-674-8413). We’ll have a gurney waiting. We are at 3924 Fernandina Road, Columbia SC.
Modern, comprehensive, and open around the clock, our hospital gives us a setting where we provide excellent veterinary care and dedicated client service. This state-of-the-art-facility features sixteen consultation rooms, a large central treatment ward, ICU runs, an on-site oxygen generator, a modern surgical suite with anesthetic monitoring, and digitized medical record keeping and radiology services. An in-house laboratory lets us administer tests immediately that help diagnose and treat your pet’s illness.
Radiology services include digital radiographs (X-rays) and ultrasound imaging. We can have a Board-Certified Veterinary Radiologist review radiographs any time of day and receive results within two hours. Should your pet need a transfusion we stock Packed Red Blood Cells, Fresh Frozen Plasma, and can access a bank of Whole Blood Donors. Our on-site pharmacy maintains various medications. We have access to all commonly used products and emergency-specific products such as antivenin (snakebites) and Fomepizole (for antifreeze toxicity).
