In Case of Emergency

If you have a pet emergency during normal business hours please call the office at 301-663-5591. If you have an emergency after normal business hours we work with local emergency clinics that are fully staffed through the evening hours, weekends and holidays. Because of their full complement of staff, they can provide complete care and overnight monitoring, something we are unable to provide in our clinic after regular business hours. Most cases are referred to us the next day if they require continued hospitalization or treatment. The pet emergency clinics we refer to are listed at the bottom of this page.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding your pet’s surgery or appointment or medication and the clinic is closed, call the office between the hours of 7 AM and 10 PM and follow the voicemail prompts to leave a message for the veterinarian on call and they will call you back.

If you have a potential pet poisoning you can call Pet Poison Hotline at 1-800-213-6680 or online at Please be aware there is a per incident fee to access help from this service.
