OPVMC: Open 24/7 for emergencies
Orchard Park Veterinary Medical Center is the premier veterinary emergency center in the region that provides a doctor and nursing staff on site 24/7. When you have a pet with a critical or life-threatening medical issue, you need the immediate attention and skilled veterinary team only we can provide. We ALWAYS have at least one veterinarian dedicated to managing emergency cases, while our general practice veterinarians and specialists continue to see regularly scheduled appointments.
Complete Veterinary Services in an Emergency
Continuity of care is essential to quality emergency services. We have access to advanced diagnostic technology, laboratory testing, state-of-the-art surgical suite, and a fully stocked pharmacy, as well as round-the-clock nursing care.
Services for Medical Necessity
Due to extremely high demand on our emergency service, along with the limited number of emergency hospitals in the area, please call our office at 716-662-6660 prior to coming in. Our veterinary team members are skilled at answering questions and assisting in what is and isn't an emergency. Calling ahead will allow us to assess your pets' condition and help prepare for your arrival.
Like at a human emergency room, emergencies are initially assessed, called a triage. Every emergency situation is different, and we prioritize life threatening, critical emergencies first. Because of the unpredictable nature of emergencies, extended wait times are possible.
In a veterinary emergency, call (716) 662-6660 and press option 1.
