ANIMAL EMERGENCY SERVICES

If your pet is injured or sick, our emergency services provide immediate help with the best possible care for your furry friend. We focus on your pet's injury or sickness, but we also provide heartworm prevention and vaccinations as necessary.

Animal emergency care is available at our Jacksonville, Jacksonville Beach, St. Augustine, St. Johns, Nocatee, and Orlando locations when the unexpected happens. 

If your pet has an emergency, remember:

Stay Calm because pets sense panic, and this could have an impact on their distress level.

Be Careful when transporting your sick or injured furry friend. No matter how good your relationship is with your pet, if he or she is in pain, this could result in increased aggression. Move them carefully and place small- or medium-sized dogs or cats in a carrier. Larger pets may need a makeshift stretcher made from a rigid material, such as a piece of wood, to place them safely in your vehicle for transport.

Call ahead to our emergency animal hospital and let us know you're on your way. Our animal emergency center always has trained in-house veterinary staff available around the clock but calling ahead helps us prepare our vet clinic for your pet's arrival.

When you need an emergency animal hospital near me to treat a sick or injured pet, Forever Vets Animal Hospital is here for you.
